Certified Business Analysis Professional (CBAP) is one of the most respected professional qualifications for business analysts. For this certification, business analysts must have at least 7500 hours of experience and pass the CBAP test administered by the International Institute of Business Analysis (IIBA) to be eligible (IIBA). In July 2020, according to IIBA Certification Registry, the number of CBAP and CCBA qualified professionals will be 10021 and 1377, respectively.

Based on conversations with Business Analysts who recently completed the CBAP Training and passed the test, we’ve compiled a list of seven ideas for preparing and passing the exam.

Knowledge-based versus competency-based: Know the difference

If you have studied the materials and have some knowledge, you can pass a knowledge-based certification exam, whereas competency-based certifications focus on outcomes, competencies, skills and performance and the scenario and case-study exam questions are designed to validate your proficiency level to prove you have the competencies required. In order to pass the CBAP/CCBA Certification, you must have a thorough understanding of the BABOK principles.

 

Reading the BABOK. Is it necessary to repeat this process 4-5 times in order to achieve success?

Don’t jam this into the book. Understanding the ideas of knowledge domains in enough detail such that these concepts may be used in any setting, such as scenario-based questions or case studies, is the most important part of the process. In order to learn BABOK, you must first sign up for CBAP Training Sprintzeal. Is there anything more you’d want to know about this situation?

Consider Classroom Training as well.

If you don’t have the time to study the BABOK, consider taking classroom instruction instead. Classroom advantages include a deeper grasp of Knowledge areas from the BA mentor, Query resolution, an interactive atmosphere where you can learn from fellow students about the BA techniques they use in their organizations, and more. It is possible to prepare more quickly and more efficiently if you attend training classes.

 

Don’t be caught in the TRAP!

The majority of BAs with eight or more years of experience are unable to pass the CBAP exam on their first try? Reason – Overconfidence + answering questions based on real-world scenarios with their prior knowledge. A BABOK-only approach is not acceptable in CBAP, as IIBA always demands a BABOK-only response. Use BABOK Knowledge areas to identify and delete incorrect answers that aren’t included in BABOK.

 

The more you practice, the better you get.

Mock simulation tests are a wonderful approach to test your BABOK knowledge. To help candidates prepare for the exam, most Question banks offer 120-question practice exams that are timed and may be taken at any time. Only subscribe to question banks that are close to the standards set by the IIBA. You may confidently book your main test if you regularly score between 70% and 80% on your mock exam.

Answering questions based on case studies

Some 2-3 pages are needed to answer 4-5 questions in this portion, which takes the most time. First, read the question and see if you can answer it based on the choices. So, if that’s the case, you’ll be able to save some time. Avoid the temptation to choose the first answer you think is correct and ignore the rest of the options. A study group or online forum might assist you get answers to your queries and problems. When you’ve finished reading the instructions, it’s time to sign up for the review sessions. One of the most significant advantages of this is that you can see where you stand in terms of knowledge.

 

Because each member of the group brings a unique viewpoint to the table, studying in groups may provide a wealth of new insights. Expand your perspective and gain a deeper understanding of a subject by using this method. Only subscribe to question banks that are close to the standards set by the IIBA.

So that you don’t get tripped up on inputs and duties, you can refer to the notes if you need to. Every question should be answered in less than two minutes. The remaining 30 minutes should be reserved for re-reading all 120 questions.
