Have you looked on the ASQ website? Their BOK for Six Sigma is downloadable.

Re: Body of knowledge for six sigma?

Does it mention fractional design DOEs? Taguchi methods are a reduction of the full factorial design.

I have a copy of the Lean Six Sigma Primer ($65) from the Quality Council of Indiana. Pretty good, I must say. www.qualitycouncil.com

ASQ SS BOK (html version) http://www.asq.org/certification/six-sigma/bok.html
ASQ SS BOK (pdf version)
http://www.asq.org/certification/docs/sixsigma_bok_2007.pdf

Please note the current BOK offered by the ASQ is covering what the exam for the certification will cover. It does not purport to be the ultimate body of knowledge covering every little side detail of SS (heck, even Mickel Harry doesn't do that!)

Quality Council of Indiana is considered a very good source by many for reference and training material for any of the ASQ certification exams.

ASQ maintains a public Forum (Certification Discussion) for questions about the exam, but the ultimate source for concrete information about the exam is ASQ Certification maven, Sally Harthun, the Manager of ASQ's Certification programs, at ASQ headquarters in Milwaukee (http://www.asq.org/customer-service/contact-asq/index.html)

If you are not an ASQ member, you should be aware there is a substantial discount on certification fees for ASQ members as well as a discount on books and other publications.

Wes,
The ASQ BOK is based on a survey of practitioners in the field and what the they actually do, and how frequently they do it. Since it is multi-regional and multi-disciplinary, it is probably the best guess as to what a Black Belt is expected to know and be able to do in the real world. The BOK comes first, and the exam is designed to test to the BOK.
