I just passed the CBDA exam and I can confidently say that I would not have passed without the use of the AdaptiveUS study materials! The study guide, class recording and exam questions made things super easy for me, Thanks to the entire team of Adaptive US, keep up the great work. I highly recommend them for CBDA
I used Adaptive's service for CBDA Assisted Learning. The study guides were a huge help on getting me to pass the exam. I am glad they went through the essential reading topics as well. The training recordings were also helpful especially when they went over the different techniques to use on each domain. Thanks
Thanks a lot to Tom and Adaptive US team for all your help in clearing the CBDA exam for me. it would have been tougher to pass the exam without your help. Your classes were immensely helpful in not only getting my concepts clear for the exam but also in making me understand and interpret data more meaningfully
