Amy Bretherick Gangl

Adaptive is a great website to use if you are attempting to become CCBA certified. They offer courses, tutorials, study guide of the BABOK, videos of techniques and many simulation questions which helps students build their confidence to be ready for the exam questions. Also, their customer support is easy to get a hold of, friendly and willing to answer any question possible. Thank you Su, Ann, Sam and LN for caring about my journey to become CCBA certified. I passed the exam yesterday and know that it would've been very difficult to pass without your support.I have just achieved my very first BA certificate, CCBA in the first attempt. 2 months ago, I was still skeptical about my eligibility to take the exam. Adaptive US answered all my concerns in details and that helped me gain confidence that I can pull through it. Throughout the course, the instructor_Mr. LN_ helped me understand BABOK by giving his real life experiences. Adaptive US also has a quality question bank which helped me familiar with the exam question structure. I thought the application process would take me few weeks to complete as I have to write down my previous BA experiences to accumulate enough hours to sit for the exam, but with the help of Adaptive US, I was able to finish it within 2 days. In overall, I would recommend Adaptive US for someone is looking for a buddy to accompany you on achieving BA certificates.

Lynne Chang, CCBALynne Chang, CCBA

Passed CCBA on the first attempt!  

Over the summer, I researched CCBA training providers and decided to choose Adaptive because their website was quite detailed and there was a real-time chat window where my queries were answered immediately by a real person not AI. I also found their pricing reasonable with rebate/discount options which weren’t available with other training providers. They also provide BA templates and BA tools training – although there’s a separate fee for that service. 

Siddharth SeksariaSiddharth Seksaria

I was not sure when I started looking for an education provider, I browse through hundreds of content - videos, blogs and webinar for CCBA preparation but I always find Adaptive's content as top quality.

I would suggest adaptive with guaranteed success

Pamela Johnston

I am so pleased that I selected my CBAP training from Adaptive US. I had been evaluating training providers for more than 2 years. Adaptive US impressed me with the range of training materials are included in the training: study guides, an excellent outline and progress of the training from start to exam completion, the Adaptive US BABOK Mind Map, flash cards, audiobooks, an aid to complete the IIBA exam application, and a bank of 5000+ test questions. Further, they provide regularly scheduled webinars after the course work, where you can ask any questions as you study for the exam. The materials are clear and comprehensive, and my instructor, LN Mishra, is an excellent guide to all things BABOK! LN helped us understand the nuances between how we work as business analysts and how IIBA and the BABOK differ. This is where the webinars really helped explain the BABOK correct answers to the test questions. I unconditionally recommend Adaptive US for any IIBA training that you may pursue. I will certainly return to Adaptive US for my next certification, the CBDA - Certification in Business Data Analytics.

Ephrem Bartolomeos

Best team to prepare you for your IIBA certification. I took the Adaptive CBAP training, leveraged their resources, took the exam, and passed in my first attempt! The Adpative team was there for me along every step. I highly recommend them!!!

Their customer service is also very excellent with very prompt and quick response for doubts and queries. I strongly recommend Adaptive US to all IIBA certification aspiring professionals.

Nikita Naik

The CBAP course from the Adaptive US is presented in a very clear and easy to digest format. LN explains quite complex concepts in plain English and with excellent examples. I appreciate the care taken to script each lesson, the extensive training material is of the highest quality and gives you the confidence and comfort to prepare and crack CBAP certification. The support from the Adaptive team has always been considerate. I strongly recommend Adaptive to anyone who's going to take IIBA certification exams. Thank You, Team!

Ashwini Vaze

I passed CBAP exam in first attempt. Adaptive US has good trainers and training material, good guidance, exam preparation time table and a lot of material that will help you study and remember what you have learnt. The simulation tests help a lot in understanding how prepared we are and that definitely helps. Thanks to the trainers and thanks Adaptive US!

Melissa Moodally

I tried doing the CBAP Certification on my own with much difficulty. I was a little skeptical at first as it was a lot of money for this course. However, it was worth every cent as the courses, notes, question bank and simulation exams were definitely a huge help.
