ASQ certification study material

#1
Good morning all,

I am looking to add to my other professional certifications and adding some ASQ certs.

I notice on the handbooks there are a few different editions, specifically for the CQA.

Is there much difference between the 5th edition(latest) and the 4th edition?

Not that I'm trying to skimp on my education, but if I can save a few dollars by going to the last edition, that would be nice.

Thank you for your assistance.

I can't comment on how much different the 4th ed is from the 5th because I don't own both. If you have never taken an ASQ certification test before, much could be learned from the 4th edition study guide. If there are questions on the exam which are covered in the 5th edition but not the 4th, then you likely will not get a perfect score. The current CQA BoK Body of Knowledge is available on the ASQ website. You could compare the areas of questions to the table of contents of the 4th edition to possibly identify where you might be weak and then supplement those areas with additional study. If you have a friend or coworker with the 5th edition, maybe you could borrow for a week ? My thoughts, FWIW.
