Six Sigma Black Belt Exam Questions

Six Sigma Study Group

When I was studying for my Six Sigma Green Belt exam years ago I didn’t have the benefit of a practice exam and that made life much harder than it needed to be.

For my first Black Belt exam (Villanova) I still couldn’t find a decent practice test but I was able to use the quizzes in my training courses to simulate the experience. For my second Black Belt certification- the ASQ I used the Indiana Council practice exams and software and that worked perfectly. Still, I get a lot of questions on free materials so here is my list of Six Sigma practice exams that I found online.

As I find other practice exams for any of the six sigma certification tests I will post them here. If you know of one I’ve missed, please let me know.

The Best Free On-line Six Sigma Black Belt Practice Exam Questions

My mission here at is to help more people pass their exams. That’s it. Plain and simple. Other companies count sales of books or training classes. I count the number of people whom this site helps pass a six sigma exam.

Over the years I’ve found three determining factors of those who pass and those who do not:

  1. People who pass try to teach the material. Doesn’t matter if this is 1:1 with you and a colleague or if you write articles for publication or if you lead a full class. Teaching is a great way to learn.
  2. People who pass apply the material. The concepts in the Body of Knowledge your exam tests can’t just remain static, you have to try to apply them to your profession and your daily life.
  3. People who pass practice a lot of example test questions. You need the repetition. You need to be familiar with various question types. Above all else, you not only need to know the right answer to questions, you need to know why the other options are wrong. That’s what today’s announcement is all about.

I’ve built a free on-line test tool to help

  • 100% on-line.
    • Study on any device, anywhere. Have a few minutes on your commute? Dive in.
  • Saves and reports your answers.
    • Automatic grading shows your comprehension of the materials. You can download and print a copy of your results along with specific study material.
  • Analyzes your biggest problem areas.
    • The system automatically grades the whole exam AND each individual topic. This helps you prioritize what areas you need the most help on.
  • Explains in detail why each answer is correct or why it is not.
    • Many six sigma certification exams offer very similar answers and it is up to you to pick the answer that is the “most correct.” Often those choices are dependent upon subtle differences. I explain not only each correct answer, but each option available.
  • Provides recommendations on what to review.
    • Understanding a topic requires more than just googling the terms in the question. These questions often depend on context from broader concepts. The system provides links to the specific concepts you need to know in the over 400 free articles on this site.
  • Provides a way to drill into specific problem-area topics.
    • What if you only want to study a certain topic? There are shorter exams for each BOK topic. For example, if you are weak in the DMAIC Measure phase, call up the Measure-only exam and work questions in that section.
