In preparation for the CMQ/OE can anyone identify important topics which have to be understood thouroughly?
Can these topics be justified with past question trends or what could be more important in terms of study?
I understand max numbers are for essay questions, Leadership, management elements & methods and Quality management tools. But what specific topics should one prepare to have a good chance at passing this exam. Thank you.
For the writing exercises, the critical line is invaluable how do you get from strategy to execution. Understanding that path and the tools and decisions used along it is critical.
Considering the BoK and the different levels of cognition required for each topic ranging from least to most complex, wouldnt it be safe to say that our focus should be more on topics bracketed under Analyze, Evaluate and Create since they are more dfficult to interpret?
I gather that Remember, Understand and Apply are basic cognitive levels which dont need much focus in terms of time spent on studying?
Kindly share your views. Thanks.
The writing section is really focused on the analyze and apply.
Back to your concerns upon the exam, would suggest you to build more confidence in your strengths by going one-inch deeper, yet at the same time make sure you enhance your learning in the topics which you are not so confident. After all, to grasp all the knowledge and to apply them in your job is much important than to pass the exam, coz what you need is the knowledge and capability. This is only my personal thoughts.
Thanks for everyone for the positive feedback. I have successfully cleared my ASQ CMQ/OE certification.
I now want to take the CSSBB exam and would like assistance in the same. Kindly guide me what i have to do to start preparation for it.
thanks & regards,
Congratulation on passing the CMQ/OE exam. What books better prepared you for the exam? Did you use the primer as well?
I did my preparation mainly from the Council of Indiana Primer + 1000 CD questions that came along with it.
Also i took classes for it from a training institute in Abu Dhabi.
