ANSI/ASQ Z1.4-2003 and ANSI/ASQ Z1.9-2003 (R2018)
All, do I need the AQL inspection standards as references when taking the CQE exam? The CQE handbook references ANSI/ASQ Z1.4-2003 and ANSI/ASQ Z1.9-2003 (R2018) frequently but I cannot find specific tables or n appendix, only small examples.

Thank you!

I would bring in something with abbreviated tables, such as The Certified Quality Process Handbook, or Introduction to Statistical Process Control by Douglas Montgomery. That second book was invaluable for me in getting the CQPA, CSSBB, and CQE.

I remember bringing a physical copy of each ANSI Acceptance Sampling standard with me to the exam (many, many years ago). However, it is my experience - both as a student, and more recently as an instructor - that the CQE exam always includes a copy of the specific page(s) from the Standard that one will need to answer a given sampling question.

I needed them for my exam but others did not. I would recommend including them in your reference materials

Hello Melissa, i came across this question when I was about to ask the same thing. Did you happen to attend the CQE exam already? How did you manage a test that referenced to ANSI/ASQ Z1 Table ? Appreciate your sharing. Thank you so much
