I am going to caveat this rant with several important pieces of information. I have taken and passed many of ASQ exams first time with minor study time beforehand. I have studied Quality systems, continuous improvement, and qualify to take my Six Sigma Black Belt exam. I think Deming should be nominated for sainthood. I love his Red Bead studies. I know and understand quality.
If you are expecting to take the Advanced Practitioner exam and be tested on higher level SQF knowledge. Expect again. I would like to say this test is more about quality ideas and tools. I think that is the intention, however it is so poorly done, the questions so badly worded, that in my mind this is a worthless exam. Since I have paid for it will be on my resume, however, I for one will not be impressed by it.
It would be interesting to know how many times people are having to take it before they pass.
SQFI needs to do this one over and refund a bunch of money--IMHO.
