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.
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!
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.
