Could you let me know, if I spend 2 hrs a day (say from Jan 1, 2007) from now for CSQA preparation then is it possible to give exam on March 24, 2007?

I am working and am not sure if I should pay the fees for the March slot or for Septmeber Slot. Your response would be appreciated

Hi Madhu,

60 days is generally enough for CSQA preparation, assuming that you spend more time on weekends around 8 -16 hours.

For a more relaxed Study Schedule consider the following 10 week plan.

Week 1: Read Introductions about CSQA, Exam Etc. and Complete KD1.
Week 2: KD2, KD3.
Week 3: Revise KD1, KD2, KD3 and start answering Questions & Subjectives. Your focus this week should be to get as much into Questions.

Week 4: KD5, KD6
Week 5: KD7. KD8
Week 6: Revise KD5 to KD 8 and Solve Objective and Subjective Questions.
Week 7: KD9, KD10
Week 8: Second Reading of Entire CBOK and answer as many questions as you can.
Week 9: Third Revision if needed OR continue Solving questions.
Week 10: Enough hard work Relax and recollect everything for the Grand Finale.

hai every body i am new to this forum and as all i am too preparing for the CSQA ,and the only thing i am unclear is wheather to appear for the mar or june .As far as preparation for the csqa is concerned i think it is more of what you learn in your organization and being a quality guy i think it should not take too much time, but planning is very important,and sticking to the plan is quiet difficult,while planning be very conservative so that you can bridge the gap.and finally there is nothing to lose take your own time dont rush be strong fundementally before getting into the depths.

Try evaluating yourself based on information here or by talking to other people. I would say march is realistic if you are an experienced person and willing to devote few hours per week

 If you postpone to June, which is 6 months from now, you may  not study till april, so it will be same preparation time.

Hi, I want to get CSQA certified before end of 2007. 

Thanks for this wonderful information web area. . I'm bit confused about the prerequisites. It says that I should have one of the three requirements. I'm a bachelor commerce degree holder (Madras University) and 5 years of IT experience but not directly under Quality. Is this a valid prerequisite. Please advice me on this.

Thanks. Yoou should be qualified. QAI may change the pre-requisites so visit for latest information. Only 1 year of IT exp. is needed
