5.0 out of 5 stars Best CCBA/ CBAP study guide 21 Nov. 2013
By Ravi Pardesi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is the guide to read if you are not only looking to clear CCBA / CBAP, but also take your BA skills up a notch. Yamo not only did a great job in explaining concepts of each Knowledge Area in simple relevant language, but also provide deeper insights on the BA skill set.

If applied properly, I think the different components of the guide (mnemonics, cartoons, mind maps, eTables and more) will imbibe in memory that is easy to recall during exam and also to apply during performing Business Analysis duties. The high quality print in color add a new dimension that help further in ingesting these concepts.

I don't have any issues in naming it as "Best CCBA/ CBAP study guide" available in the market for exam prep. All in all, a great product - highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in the industry. Addresses all learning styles ESPECIALLY helpful for visual learners 20 Jan. 2014
By Elizabeth Bakhtiyari - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This Study Guide is one of many CBAP preparation tools offered on the website. ALL of the tools are so helpful to prepare for the exam. I began my career as a non-technical Business Analyst and am currently working as an Enterprise Business Analyst with significantly more technical expertise. And tools such as this Study Guide played an integral part. This guide demystifies BABOK as does the Exam Prep Course I also took off the website. The author of the Guide who also owns the website is passionately committed to improving the quality of the Business Analysis profession. This Guide is worth the cost many times over... I recommend it in a heart beat to anyone who wishes to improve the caliber of their business analysis work and especially if they want to become a CBAP.

Update -- May 14th 2014 I PASSED the exam... The Study Guide was what made the difference... The Guide explains the BA BOK in easy to understand language. I changed careers when I became a BA... Have no Business or Computer Science degree and now I feel like I have BOTH...

Stop looking as this is as good as it gets... I tried several other guides and this one is by far the best... Good Luck on your exam!

3.0 out of 5 stars Neumonic Passions 24 Jan. 2015
By Roger A. Pace - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Too much concentration on neumonics and illustrations and not enough on the practice of the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) to assist the reader prepare for the BABOK exam.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Ultimate Study Guide that Guarantees Success 26 Jan. 2014
By Deborah J Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I recommend this study guide for anyone preparing for the CBAP Exam. This guide provides for a learning experience unlike any other I have yet experienced. I used the BABOK and this guide with its accompanying audio files to prepare for and pass the CBAP exam within 3 months. The presentation of the guide appealed to my visual learning and the audio files to my auditory style of learning. The study guide content provided a rich learning experience for a low price. The volume of information in the BABOK that must be learned for the CBAP exam is overwhelming. Using this guide put the subject matter in perspective and allowed me a structured way to learn in an expedited manner.

Information from the BABOK is presented in the CBAP/CCBA Study Guide eTables using a tabular format, eMindmaps in a graphical format, and KAT Tales using comic strip type format. The practice exams are useful and necessary to ensure readiness for the CBAP exam. A combination of all of these materials allowed for enhanced learning and memorization of the subject matter. I continue to use the information today as a reference to Business Analysis.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read... 13 Jan. 2014
By Ardent Kalso earth Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I agree with all the other reviewers; this book is a wonderful companion to the BABOK. The color print of this book definitely makes it to stand out and the book is a reflection of the Author's passion in Business Analysis. I got another popular book for my CBAP prep, but this is the one I normally end up picking. I was thoroughly convinced to get the Kit and I'm so glad I did. Get this book, you will not regret!
