- A: The preparation time may vary depending on your prior knowledge, experience and learning style. However, a general guideline is to spend at least 100 hours of study time covering the CSSBB body of knowledge and practicing with mock exams. - Q: What are the eligibility requirements for the CSSBB exam? - A: According to ASQ, you must have two completed projects with signed affidavits or one completed project with signed affidavit and three years of work experience in one or more areas of the CSSBB body of knowledge. You must also have at least a bachelor's degree or equivalent. - Q: What is the format and duration of the CSSBB exam? - A: The CSSBB exam consists of 150 multiple-choice questions that cover 11 main topics of the CSSBB body of knowledge. You have four hours to complete the exam. - Q: What are the passing criteria and score for the CSSBB exam? - A: The passing score for the CSSBB exam is determined by a panel of experts using a modified Angoff method. The score is based on the difficulty level of each question and the expected performance of minimally qualified candidates. The passing score is typically around 550 out of 750 possible points. - Q: How can I register and schedule for the CSSBB exam? - A: You can register and schedule for the CSSBB exam online through ASQ's website. You will need to create an account, fill out an application form, pay the exam fee and select a testing location and date.
