This reference manual is designed to help those interested in passing the American Society for Quality s (ASQ) certification exam for Six Sigma Green Belts, those who may need to train future green belts, and others who want a handy reference to the appropriate materials needed to conduct successful green belt projects. This latest entry in ASQ's popular series of handbooks explicitly follows the certification's Body of Knowledge and addresses each topic to exactly the level green belts need.

From lean and project management to statistics and data analysis, the DMAIC process is explained in a clear and insightful manner. Figures, tables, references, and useful appendices only add to this book's comprehensiveness. The CD-ROM has more than just sample questions! The authors have included dozens of useful files, such as case studies, articles, and blank forms, as well as a hot link to the Web site listed below. Anything except exam questions can be printed out and used in the ASQ certification exam.

Expensive for a scanned book
Charging almost 80 for a scanned copy of a book that you cant interact with like you can with books designed for tablets is a bit much. If someone had converted this book
to a tablet version it could be read by audio readers etc and referenced by the user. Lazy conversion for a premium price. That said, the book is excellent in terms of content. Gets a three from me but if someone converts it to a proper tablet book, which is very simple as there must already be a soft copy or it wouldnt be available at all, then it would get a five.
