Customer Reviews on CBAP Certification Training

Highest recommendation for Adaptive US Inc! Their CCBA and CBAP courses were fundamental for me passing both exams on the first attempt. Adaptive offers online, instructor-led, interactive courses that engage the students, offer insights,

Denise David

I found Adaptive US when i was searching for a IIBA recognized institute for a CBAP education and learning via google search. The most impressive aspect of my journey with Adaptive started with the online human assistance. At some point i wasn't sure if i was dealing with a robot or a human help but then i was wowed by how quickly my questions were answered with nice details and the fact that i was successfully convinced to start the program immediately rather than postpone to another month. They also kept their promises (financial and training).

- Etoma Egot

I chose Adaptive for my course provider required for my CBAP certificate. Adaptive have great trainers who help make sense of the BABOK guide. Adaptive also have A LOT of resources online (question bank, audio guides, study material) so there’s plenty to keep you busy while you study.

- Jon Bryant

While preparing for CBAP, I realized it's a tough nut to crack and the questions were tricky. A friend suggested adaptive simulation tests for practice. I joined the adaptive workshop and cleared my exam within one month after my last session. The sessions from LN, Peter, Lora were helpful in understanding the BABOK terminology better. Though I have good BA experience, it's important to practice the simulation tests and understand how to manage time during the exam. The simulation tests and presentations from adaptive were close to real exam so we can decode the questions well. Adaptive also has lots of other blogs, study material that's helpful in this profession. I would recommend the adaptive workshops for anyone who is looking for CBAP preparation. Thanks to Adaptive and LN for taking up my questions in email even after the sessions and guiding me through my prep.

Bhavana Kandikonda

Preparing for CBAP with LN was a wonderful experience. He is very knowledgeable and exam oriented which really helped. The videos prepared on knowledge areas were also very helpful in brushing up the concepts before exam.

- Sujata Bapat

The course content is very comprehensive and easy to grasp. Course content i.e. study guide or question bank or presentation are very well designed and updated, that it spells out the important details with simplicity and explains the concept clearly image very short time. The coverage of techniques is interesting and are explained in relevance to the specific knowledge areas. overall I feel that the course is very comprehensive and I would recommend it for all aspiring CBAPV3 certifiers. Kudos to Ananya & Team !!

- Parag Shah

Many thanks to the entire Adaptive US team! They did an outstanding job at communicating the BABOK material, especially with some of the implicit concepts that needed to be elaborated on. I passed the exam two weeks after completing the program. This is truly one of the best CBAP prep programs out there!

- Dr. Michael White

Thank you Adaptive! With the support of Adaptive instructors LN Mishra, Lora McCoy, Peter Johnson, Adaptive support team and Adaptive online learning tools and test preparation system, I was able to pass the test from the first attempt.

- Svetlana Rozovsky

Adaptive’s study aids are excellent and will not only help you save time towards your CBAP prep but give you the confidence that you are actually grasping the concepts as you go through the study guide, question banks, videos, flash cards and the plethora of content they offer through their online platform. I signed up with Adaptive in August 2018 and passed my CBAP exam in November 2018 on the first attempt. I look forward to signing up with Adaptive in 2019 for the Agile certification workshop.

- Usman Khan

The Adaptive practice questions are an excellent resource to prepare for the CBAP exam. I completed all their simulation tests twice and reviewed the Questions explanations to be sure my understanding was correct, and concepts were fresh in my mind before the exam. If you want to pass the first time, practice is the answer.

There is no official data from IIBA to answer this question as IIBA does not disclose this information. However, from our experience and the experience of our past CBAP participants, we know that it is safe to assume that the CBAP exam passing score is more than 70%. Hence, we suggest targeting 85%+ in the CBAP mock tests in order to be successful in the CBAP final exam.

CBAP self-study is not recommended for the following reasons:

  • You need 35 PDUs for the IIBA application process and PD hours are obtained only from the live training.
  • Clearing CBAP is quite hard as there are no direct questions
  • All the questions require deeper understanding of concepts, tasks and techniques, which comes only with the guidance, and mentoring of experienced coaches and study materials.
  • Time management remains a big challenge till date and the exam prep tricks and tips from our coaches helps our participants to sail through this challenge.

The CBAP exam candidates will be notified immediately on screen once they submit their computer-based exam. For those who fail the exam, they will be provided with additional information, specifically the Knowledge Areas that require their attention.

You may take the exam up to 3 times within the 1-year application expiry period. There is no wait time between exam sittings. If you take the exam all 3 times and do not pass, you must wait until your application expires before you can reapply

Read on to move ahead in your BA career.

Yes, you have been a Business Analyst, done and lived the analyst role, been through all this, now it doesnt seem so interesting anymore.

Is this something you have been as a Senior BA and BA Managers been through?


So what next?

Here is a very broad guideline for the career progression of a BA.

Four common career paths BAs can pursue are:
1. Business analysis
2. Product management
3. Project management
4. Consulting

However having said that it depends on the persons interest, domain/technical knowledge, interest to learn new concepts and risk-taking ability which determines largely the career progress.

If you are risk-taking and open to learn new concepts/domain you can change your domain and move to a new field and establish yourself to be a good player in the field. This gives you good exposure and makes your career prospects broader. That makes you a good candidate for a senior executive position.

If you love what you are good at and aim to become an expert in the same without changing gears then you can master your domain including getting into other areas in the same domain. This can include having a good hold on the tools and products prevalent in the domain. This can make you a great specialist and unique in the field, which is invaluable for your career.

You can make yourself a great consultant in a particular field and can think of working with multiple clients to give them a part of your time and expert guidance. In return, this gives you the flexibility and the rich experience of working with multiple clients.

There is no better time than now to start something good.

Go and Kiss the world as per your taste and interest, the world is all yours if you can make it and believe in yourself.
