Questions on the test are required to be referenced from the published list. A hyperlink 'Exam References' is provided for further information.  I have arranged the books into categories for your convenience.

The oldest version of ISO 9001:2000 is still referenced.  The current version is 2015.

Please note that the two reference handbooks sponsored by ASQ National for CSQE and CQA.  What better way to make more money than to ask questions on the test from these books!  My course will be sufficient to educate you on what you need to know for the CQA.
