Happy to recommend the team at Adaptive US and LN Mishra to anyone looking to gain an IIBA BABOK certification. I attended the CCBA Training Workshops delivered by LN through Adaptive, and have been able to successfully get certified within the promised 8 week time frame.


My CCBA AdaptiveUS training is by far the best training I attended in business analysis. Forget all the book teaching LN rocked how he trained us - very interactive, collaboratively fun and enjoying, sharing his real-life experiences (I was focusing on this lol) and of course he was like a great father to us who loves to mentor his children


The training provided by Adaptive US Inc was great. The online webinars helped a lot to understand the core concepts. Great support from LN Mishra and Lora Mc Coy. I passed the exam in one month.


Hi LN & Ananya, yesterday i gave my CCBA exam and I successfully cleared the exam. Thank you again for all your assistance.


I used only Adaptive Processes materials to prepare for my ECBA and CCBA exams, both of which I passed on my first try. I will certainly use their materials to prepare for my CBAP exam.


Adaptive US has helped prepare for CCBA certification, The study material provided by Adaptive is very helpful and they have multiple practice tests. The simulation tests were most helpful, you can review your answers and explanation to see if your understanding about the concepts are correct. If you have any questions they are quick with Responses.


“Wonderful experience in term of knowledge, guidance and preparation materials. I was skeptical initially about where to get trained which would be good enough for me but after much reasearch chose to go with them and i am very happy i chose them , they have helped me with all my queries and their practice materials are exhaustive to give a good simulation of original exam. Keep up the good work but also of course their would always be a room for improvement and i know they are always eager for improving themselves which is endearing.”


I have been going through Adaptive & LN’s guidance. They haven’t failed me yet !!! Your information helped me feel more positive about Business Analysis work and to take CCBA examination. I am a different person today because of the your teaching & guidance. Many thanks.


Adaptive CCBA training was straight to the point! LN training aimed at understanding the Knowledge Areas in a very simple way in order to assimilate them for the better. The online help was with also fantastic, you could choose between specific quiz on KA and Flash cards, with great tests to go with it, finishing off with two full tests simulation. I would recommend this training for ECBA, CCBA preparation anytime, they are fantastic!

We typically recommend 80-120 hours of preparation after attending the CCBA training session. Follow the below given process to ace the exam:

  • Prepare a schedule and stick to the schedule (Download the CCBA exam study preparation plan from SuXeed)
  • Start your preparation with the Adaptive CCBA study guide
  • Take up one chapter at a time from the Adaptive US CCBA Study guide and test your understanding with the chapter based scenario questions
  • Complete the IIBA application filing with Adaptive US CCBA application simulator that we provide as part of the CCBA training deliverable
  • Revise the concepts by reading the Adaptive US CCBA Study guide 2/3 times and BABoK Study guide 2/3 times
  • Attempt the 6 Adaptive US CCBA simulations comprising of 130 questions and review incorrect answers. In total, Adaptive provides 2100+ CCBA model questions to test your preparation
  • Once you score about 85%+ in the CCBA model questions, you are ready to appear for the CCBA exam
  • Book your exam dates 4 or 6 weeks later, preferably on a Monday

All candidates who wish to take IIBA certifications must read and agree to a mandatory Code of Conduct prior to applying in order to be able to proceed with your application.

There is 125 USD discount for IIBA members on the examination fees.

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 CCBA participants, we know that it is safe to assume that the CCBA exam passing score is more than 70%. Hence, we suggest targeting 85%+ in the CCBA mock tests in order to be successful in the CCBA final exam.

Although IIBA® allows one to take the CCBA exam without any classroom training, it will be really hard to understand BABoK v3.0 without the help of an expert instructor. BABoK V3 is 500+ pages long and quite complex to follow. An expert instructor can help you to understand BABoK v3.0 very quickly. €¢ In addition, instructor led sessions give good insight on how to prepare for the exam, clarify doubts and provide practical tips and tricks based on exam experience.

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

  • You need 21 PDUs for the IIBA application process and PD hours are obtained from live training.
  • Clearing CCBA is not easy as questions are scenario based.
  • All the questions require good 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 CCBA 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.
