Exam Study Groups

Interested in Joining a Study Group to Prepare For Your Certification Exam?

CQAA offers coordination assistance to those who are planning to sit for one of the certification exams and are interested in participating in a Study Group with others who are also preparing for the same certification.

How to Join a Study Group

Study Groups are formed based on level of interest, and are scheduled twice per year. Generally, we recommend the study groups meet on a weekly basis for 2-3 months.

In 2013, study groups will be formed based upon interest in late Spring and late Fall. If you are interested in a joining a Study Group forming in late Spring, please reply no later than April 1, 2013 to

Based upon responses, CQAA will help coordinate you with others in the same area who are interested in forming a study group. Please note: this is not a PREP course. This is a considerable committment from each person in the group as the study group meets on their own and prepares weekly study topics/presentations.

If you are are interested in joining a Study Group for either the CSQA, CSTE or CSPM exam, please e-mail the study group coordinator at with the following important information:

  • Your name
  • Contact information (work and home phone/e-mail address)
  • Which exam you are preparing for (CSQA, CSTE or CSPM)
  • General preferred location for the Study Group
    (e.g. Downtown Chicago, West Suburbs, NW Suburbs, etc.)

The Study Groups also need locations in which to meet!

The groups themselves will decide on which days to meet, but generally they need to have access to a room from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on a weeknight, and the room should be large enough to hold 10-12 people. If you or your company is interested in hosting a study group (or a kick-off meeting), please email with your location.
