Hello, Mr. Chinchalkar,
Although you don't indicate which of JP Russell's books you are referencing, none of his titles address preparing for the CQA exam quite like the ASQ Certified Quality Auditor Handbook, Fifth Edition.
I would highly recommend purchasing the printed copy from the Quality Press bookstore website. Remember, you may use the printed copy for reference during the exam--you cannot use an eBook copy.

All the best,
Lillian

Hi Ravi, I sure understand what you mean. Although Russel is the editor for the 4th edition and Coleman for the 5th, I'm not sure who's the editor for the CQA question bank. Ideally Coleman should be given the opportunity to update the question bank when the 5th was coming out. But that doesn't seem like the way it's happening. The current question bank for CQA still makes references to the 4th edition of Russel not the 5th edition. Just completed the certification process recently. Good luck!

HI I just completed the CQA Certification Prep course and we used the Lance Coleman 5th edition. I'd say purchase it. Good Luck.

Ravi ji I am also preparing for the CQA Exam. Please feel free to connect with me on 9172374560.

I just passed the ASQ CQA exam not long ago, I recommend you to buy Coleman's manual, it will help you more. slope unblocked mapquest driving directions


The ASQ CQA exam is an important milestone in the career of an ASQ-certified professional. The exam provides tetris unblocked you with the skills and knowledge necessary to provide quality customer service.

The 5 th edition of Coleman vs 4th edition of JP Russel is a legal case that is being fought by two companies, Coleman and Russel. The case is about whether or not a product is safe to use. The 4th edition of JP Russel was created in 2000 and it was based on the law of product wordle 2 liability. The law of product liability states that a product is safe to use if it is used in a way that is consistent with the product's instructions.

@Ravi Chinchalkar my thoughts differ from the other responses. The ASQ books are periodically updated to keep them current. The content gets refreshed but if the body of knowledge hasn’t changed, most of the information will be the same. I would use the version I already owned, unless you see that the BOK changed.

Good luck!
