On the description of what is and is not allowed to be taken into the exams, it says that post-it notes are permitted as book tabs only. Are we allowed to label the post-it tabs? Like if I have a post-it marking the section of the book that covers the different gurus and what they are known for can I write "Gurus" on the edge of the post-it?
In regards to the ASQ-CQE exam, it is typically conducted at a Prometric center. I have personally attended an exam at such a center, but it was for the American Petroleum Institute (API), not ASQ. Based on my experience, Prometric centers generally do not allow any tabs or additional reference materials during the exam.
If the CQE exam is an open book exam, you may have the option to access your reference materials in the exam window. However, you won't be able to use the search function. Instead, you will need to have a good understanding of where specific topics are located in your reference book to find the relevant information efficiently. The use of shortcut keys to directly locate information may not be applicable in this scenario.
Please note that exam procedures and rules can vary between different organizations and exams. Therefore, it's essential to carefully review the specific guidelines provided by ASQ for the CQE exam to ensure compliance and a smooth exam experience. If you have any doubts or questions, I recommend reaching out to Prometric center directly for clarification.
Were you able to find out if we can write the topic/theme on the tabs?
Thank you for sharing.
Yes, I took the exam in August and I had color coded post its for each section of the handbook with writing on them for what specific topic or tool was being marked.
