     Hi,
       I am planing to take the ASQ SSBB ceritification exam. Right now I am preparing with the Quality council of Indiana CSSBB Primer and their test questions. Is the primer alone is good enougth to prepare for the exam or do I need to reffer to more books.
    Thanks
    Morgan

    Not knowing anything about you and how much you know, your background, etc – how can we possibly answer that question??

    My humble  opinion:Just  jumping  to  the  exam.without proper  training or  relevant  experience  in SS,without  reading  at  least  5  books  in  SS.Just purchasing  this  Indiana primer and  then  pass  the  test ,and  get  the  Certification??For  me  it looks  like “cheating”?

    The primer is good, which is useful with the ASQ CSSBB exam. This exam is very academic in nature, and less practical. I wouldn’t, however, trade in any of the project work I did at my company before taking the test.

    Instead of identifying yourself as “Allthingsidiot” which is redundant advertising to the point of being as obviously and appropriately emblematic as possible, why don’t you just identify yourself as “Iamwhatiam” or perhaps throw a little Popeye the Sailor Man comedic flair into it with “Iyamwhatiyam.”    
     
    Yes, let me suggest “Iyamwhatiyam” it even has a bit of a Mid-Eastern sounding harmonic lilt to it.   Try it a few times I’m certain you’ll like it.

    Wel I have a masters in Industrial Engineering and I have completed 2 six sigma projects under the guidence of a master blackbelt. Now I am trying to get the certification. So all I need is to referesh what I have studied in school. So the primer good enough to prepare for the exam or should I have to refer to any other books?.

    I am not sure that I totally agree with your statement. I do understand and agree what I believe is your base line sentiment, that being that there is potential for a lot of “cookie cutter” belts that can be created from the requirements for taking the ASQ test since it does not requite previous training. My personal experience, which is not as expensive as many others on this forum, is that most of the internal programs are watered down from what they should be and that the candidates see the belt as merely a check mark they need to complete for there next pay raze.
    That said, please not that Morgan states he has an MS in engineering. While I do not have an MS in Engineering (only a BS) I would dare say that almost all of the statistical material covered in BB course work is well covered in his MS & BS classes. What is left can be learned form a Master Black Belt in one-on-one sessions using the same material that was available for a “good” internal class and with mentoring during the projects.

    I’ve read some Six Sigma books. They were written by a jolly looking fat man in a cowboy outfit. I coloured in all the pictures in three of them

    Thank You  for  the  advice.But  if  you  really  like  this  name why then  you  don’t  use  it  for  yourself instead  if “Brutus”,or  you  may  sell  it  and  make  some  money??I’m  satisfied with  my  “stupid’  name
    best  regards

    Don’t bother would be my answer. As a hiring manager if I see ASQ Six sigma certification on a resume I throw it away. They fought six sigma tooth and nail, then jumped on the band wagon when they couldn’t beat it. If you get, keep it off your resume.

    That’s sounds less than open minded.
