Hi,
Today I subscribed for the Green Belt Study Guide. However when I try the first module (Quiz) I always receive the same error message (Login warning: There was an issue with your log in. Your user account has logged in recently from a different location.). Despite I logout from all my devices this error message does not seem to disappear. Any suggestion on how to resolve this issue?
Thank you.

Hi Moise,

Thanks for contacting me. This is a security feature. Sometimes you may need to close your browsers out (all tabs) and / or refresh your browser cache. Regardless, I’ve systematically logged you out of the system. You should be all set now. Happy studying!

Hello There

I’d like to ask of you provide a six sigma green belt study guide book in addition to other resources such as the question bank and other resources.

Thank you very much

Hello,

I was looking up the pricing for the ASQ Black Belt course, and while I found the Green Belt was $127, I was unable to find pricing for the Black Belt. Can you let me know?

Thanks!

Hi Saad,

The PYSSGB course has helped many people prepare for their Black Belt exam. Certainly, if you cannot pass all of my mock exams and practice quizzes, you will not be ready for the Black Belt exam.

I offer a 30 day $ back guarantee. Why not give the PYSSGB course a try? If it’s not for you, I’ll be happy to give you a refund.

Best, Ted.

Thanks Ted.
I really will like to make a purchase but have further question.
(1) does the practice exam have explanatory and solution section for incorrect answers?
Thanks

I meant if I get an answer wrong, do you provide a section that explains the question and provides solution or calculation/steps for the answer?

Absolutely, Saad. Each of the tiers offers 700+ questions. Each question details not only why the right answer is correct, it describes why the wrong answer is a poor choice. For calculation questions there are expansive additional notes – entire pages dedicated to stepping through how to answer.

The Guided tier offers an exclusive forum where you can ask follow up questions on any of the questions in the entire guide.

The Custom tier offers a custom-made study plan as well as the ability to ask for more in-depth information on any topic.

Ted,

I am also trying to upgrade my membership to the PYSSGB Guided Course but I do not see an option for upgrade only purchase of course.

Can you please help?

Hi Ashley,

That’s a good point. I don’t have an option for that listed. I’ll be in touch with a discount code for you to be able to upgrade at the email you provided.

Thank you for reaching out!

Best, Ted.

Hi,
Is CSSGB course material would be online or is it in handbook going to be delivered at my home ?
And what if I want to cancel it after some days what is the procedure for it and in how many days I’ll get the refund?

Hi Mahendar,

I see that you are Free Trial Member – thanks for signing up!

My course material is entirely on-line. I have a 30 day refund policy – just contact me at any time and request a refund if it’s not right for you.

You can see a complete walk through of what my course looks like here: https://sixsigmastudyguide.com/pyssgb-walkthrough/

Before you buy, please note that my courses (Pass Your Six Sigma Green Belt) is for people who have learned six sigma but need a way to study for the exam and want to be certain to pass the exam. If this is your first exposure to six sigma, you’d want to take training first.

hi Ted;

I taken my ASQ SSGB certification test today and certainly good news to inform you that i have just passed the exam.

Thanks and very fortunate to know your course. It does help me to better prepare myself in the exam.

thanks again.

rgds, Er

Hello Ted,

Can you advise on the better certification – Lean 6 Sigma or Regular 6 Sigma? Does your program cover both?

Thank you,
John

Hi John,

I think both Lean and Six Sigma are both toolsets that professionals need. They are complimentary to each other. More important than the certification is who is doing the certifying. There are many ‘certification mills’ out there that are happy to charge you for a piece of paper.

My best advice is to look for others in your career path that have achieved what you want to achieve and mirror their certifications. If that’s not applicable, I recommend using ASQ. ASQ’s green belt and black belt certifications require understanding of both lean and six sigma.

My program covers both lean and six sigma and prepares candidates to pass a large variety of lean six sigma certifications from leading organizations like ASQ, IASSC, Villanova, and more.

Best, Ted.

Ted,

I have been conducting DMAIC projects since 2007 and certified under stringent criteria under the Department of Defense (U.S. Navy) guidelines as an LSS Black Belt. I retired in 2015 and have since been consulting on LSS across industries.

I would like to diversify my certification profile to ASQ and possibly IASSC and despite my deep fund of experience I do not want to take anything for granted. In fact, I know I have some sharp contrast in core belief and practices to both of the BoKs under ASQ and IASSC.

I have researched far and wide for a prep/tutorial package and your system and approach to communication stands tall amongst your competitors.

I would like to enroll in Black Belt level prep but I only see Green Belt on your site. Please advise where I can enroll for Black Belt Prep.

Hi Robert,

Thanks for reaching out. And thanks you for the kind words – I hope to live up to them!

I am currently creating a Black Belt product that will serve both ASQ and IASSC established bodies of knowledge. It will be ready towards the end of February.

Best, Ted

HI Ted, great to e-meet you! I just signed up for the express course for the green belt exam and notice I cant access or read anything in reference to Module 1. Does this unlock like on Day one?

Thanks!

Hi Ted,

I’m really grateful to have come across your site. I am trying to create my customized Study Plan as your blog indicated. I took your free assessment tests and found them very insightful. However on logging in again i cannot find my test results. Kindly help me with my result information so i can create my study plan. Thank you.

Ted I signed up for the Free Six Sigma Black Belt Exam Questios. Your site then rejected my access to PYSSGB. What is going on? How do I get access to PYSSGB reestablished?

Hi Scott, I hadn’t anticipated that paid members would sign up for the Black Belt free trial. As it is, the checkout system cancels all previous accounts at time of “purchase”. I’m looking into a better workflow.

I’ve reverted your account back to the purchased PYSSGB. Apologies for the disruption.

Dear Sir/Madam,

I got your contact reference from the website, I am Neelam Bhatt and based in India. I am looking for certification course and certificate in Six Sigma.
Hence, you are requested kindly provide the course details and fee structure for this certificate.
Iam interested to enroll myself for this course asap.

Ted,
Thanks a lot for the help. I just passed the IASSC Six Sigma Green Belt Exam this morning.
Best Wishes
Scott

I am in search of an option to purchase a Pass Your Black Belt course (like your Pass the Green Belt Course). I am having difficulty navigating your website…..can only find green belt courses.

Hey Editors,

My name is Martin and I am the CEO & Co-Founder of Cleverism.com — a leading educational website that helps people actually get their dream job (we write super actionable and helpful career guides :-).

I stumbled upon your post on “Brainstorming” and I thought it was very insightful.

Over the last 2 weeks I wrote probably the most actionable and helpful guide on everything people ever wanted to know about idea generation, stages of successful ideation, successful idea generation techniques etc.

Ideas are things that come and go and fairly frequently too. However, the really great ideas usually spring unexpectedly in moments of inspiration. The generation of ideas can be stimulated using tools for creative thinking. By first recognizing the barriers to creativity and then exploring a range of techniques to develop new approaches to problems.

In this article we will include a short note on the three stages of successful ideation and 18 killer idea generation techniques. Any chance you’d include our actionable guide on “Idea Generation Techniques” (https://www.cleverism.com/18-best-idea-generation-techniques/) in your awesome article (https://sixsigmastudyguide.com/brainstorming/)?

Have a lovely day and keep up the good work,

Martin

Ted,

I am studying for LSSBB cert with Villanova, will the ROI be worth it to take the LSSGB Villanova study course? Thank you for your time!

Ryan

Hi Ryan,

Yes, I think it would because:

1) I’ve built the Green Belt course to be incredibly robust and comprehensive, so you will receive excellent preparation.

2) Other Villanova Black Belt candidates have done precisely that! They’ve even been pleased enough to leave testimonials which I try to make use of through out the site.

But you don’t have to take my word for it. My programs have a 30 Day money back guarantee. If you don’t think it’s right for you for any reason, I’m happy to refund your purchase in full.

Hi

I see some of your topics example , Residuals Analysis , has no material or I cant click on it to view this material. I would like to know if such material is available upon payment? also I am looking to use this as a study guide to pass my BB Exam as I can see almost all of the BB topics are covered here.

Hi Savio,

Should be updated now. Thank you for the comment! In the future, just leave a comment on any of the ones you are particularly interested in if you’d like to advance it up my prioritization list!

Best, Ted.

Hello Ted, I see you have three courses offered for Green belt, however, I do not see any courses for Black Belt. I am planning to take the certification in next couple of months and would be interested in a ASQ Black belt course.

Hi ,
I am from IT industry. I see many statistical topics in six sigma are also taught in Artificial intelligence and machine learning. Will studying six sigma help me?
Is there any book which you can refer me regarding application of six sigma in IT projects?

Hi Sam,

I have an IT background and you’re right; Six Sigma topics are seeing a huge resurgence these past few years in the Big Data, Quality 4.0, AI/Machine learning / Analytics space.

I personally have used Six Sigma topics and practices to deliver massive value through out my software delivery career. I encourage others to do so.

If you’re in the Software delivery space, I’d recommend Scaled Agile Framework. If you’re in the IT Infrastructure space, I really like The Phoenix Project for this.

Best, Ted.

HI Ted, I took an online study course which gave a broad overview and some practice exams and projects but was missing Step-by-Step explanations on how to solve the many types of statistical math problems.

Also I’m quite rusty when it comes to the statistical math that is needed to sit for the exam. During the online course it was difficult for me to determine which formula to use and when to do look ups for z-score and t-score tables.

Overall, I would need some help if getting comfortable with the math problems. Do you offer step-by-step help and personalized guidance and “how to do examples” on the math problems?

Well, you’ve come to the right place!!
I just wrote a comprehensive free guide on exactly how to do this. Here’s the link:  https://sixsigmastudyguide.com/hypothesis-tests-study-guide/https://sixsigmastudyguide.com/hypothesis-tests-study-guide/https://sixsigmastudyguide.com/hypothesis-tests-study-guide/

I’d love feedback to make it even better!

Inside my program I have hundreds of questions with step-by-step walk-throughs of exactly the kinds of questions you’re talking about.

If you like this guide, I’d suggest signing up for my free trial here: https://sixsigmastudyguide.com/free/https://sixsigmastudyguide.com/free/https://sixsigmastudyguide.com/free/

Inside you’ll be able to take a few practice exams and see how I coach people through all kinds of questions. 

Please hit reply and let me know what you think.

Best, Ted.

Hi Nabeel,

I use Chrome extensively when using and making changes to the site. However, updates to Chrome do happen that require further maintenance and changes from time to time.

If you’ll let me know exactly what the issue is, I’ll see what I can do. Just email me some screen shots of what you are seeing and what you would like to see instead.

Best, Ted.

Please sir
I quoted this portion of your work on non parametric. it was hugely challenge and I was asked to provide the source. Can you please help me with the reference.
“They are usually used in situations where there is only a small amount of information available about the application in question”.

There are many links provided for free practice exams for green belt but only one works and it is the same 20 questions. the others are either no longer working or take me to a place to pay for it.

I tried to sign up for an account but it showed my account is locked. I tried to unlock my account but never received an unlock email. Also, I am taking ASQ CSSBB, but I did not see there is a CSSBB exam package.

Hi Adele,

That sounds frustrating. No worries, we’ll get it sorted out. I don’t have a record of you in the system with the email you’ve listed. Can you send me a screen shot of what you’re seeing and I’ll get you set up.

Best, Ted.

Ted, your link to Combinatorics is bad. In fact, a search on that term in the site doesn’t return a result. Just FYI.

Hi Ted,

I just completed the Villanova Green Belt course (End of Jan) and honestly I don’t even know how to start. I was just starting a new project mgmt. position at the time the course started so honestly, I didn’t get as much out of it as I thought. How should I begin to study? I am actually just going through all of the lectures and readings again like you have stated, as I know just studying the practice exams will not help. I did send you a friend request on LinkedIn as well. I look forward to hearing from you.

Kind regards,
Mike Birnbaum

Mike,

Thanks for asking. First, you’re on the right path given that you’ve signed up for our free practice exams.

Second, read this article about how I passed the Villanova Black Belt. The path will be very similar for the Green Belt, but I like your approach listed so far.

Third, take the practice exam that I have in the free course and send me an email with your score. We can plan the best course of action for you to take from there on in.

Best, Ted.

Hey Ted,

I’m not sure if here is the right place for this question but I’m studying towards the IASSC and spending a lot of time on questions that require calculation/recollection of formulas.

Do you know how relevant those questions are for the exam?

What percentage of the exam will contain those type of questions?

Many thanks in advance,
Liz

Hi Ted, I’d like to get into your green belt guide study because I’m wan to become green belt, 8 years ago I had a green belt training from the company that I worked ( DuPont) and I have my notes and documents but I need to refresh every thing . How hours of study do you recomend to pass examen and learn. I saw in the site of ASQ they have two dates one in July and august. another things is my English is low-intermediate, I’m living in canada but my first language is spanish, and second one french. I’m working on it but I was wondering if it is an issue for me. I received an offer for your membership Get Pass Your Six Sigma Green Belt and I wonder if that is just one pay or by month.

Thanks

Hello Ted,

I would like to use the 30 day full reimbursement for the study guide I signed up for about a week ago.

Thanks,
Peter

Hi, I want to purchase (PYSSGB) Pass Your Six Sigma Green Belt Course – Express. It’s said there will be 1000 questions. Are those questions comes with answers and explanation or just answers?

Hi Afzalul,

Thanks for the question. Yes, all questions have deep explanations of answers and links to further materials to reinforce your understanding for both correct and the incorrect choices.

Best, Ted.

Do you have any study options that I can use for 2 months ? and the 1000 questions can be arranged in topic-based or subject-based rather than random? Is there any lower price available?

Afzalul,

You’re in luck! The Guided course options are arranged BOTH in topic order, subtopic order, AND at the end of the course there are full-length mock exams. You don’t get access to just 1000 questions, you get access to a full study guide that helps you assess what you need to do and then helps you zero in on the specific weak areas that you need to improve on. See some screen shots of what you get here.

As for a lower price, there are already 3 pricing tiers. I am testing out a monthly option for $49 that you can cancel at any time. Click here to subscribe via the monthly option.
