“I bought this book to study for the PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA) certification. The book is well organized and not only explains the 5 domains in a way that makes them easy to understand, it furthermore provided answers to all of my questions in relation to my preparation for the exam.
The book walks you through the A to Z of what you need to know to pass the PMI-PBA certification, covering both the agile and waterfall approaches. It also covers the IIBA CBAP and IREB CPRE certifications.
Conclusion: A must have. The book is written short and to the point. You don’t get the feeling of reading the same information twice, as you often do with books of this type. This also makes it very suitable as a reference book to keep on my shelf after passing the exam.”
“This study guide maps the IIBA’s BABOK six knowledge areas to the five PMI–PBA domains and the IREB CPRE, enabling you to re–use the knowledge to pass whichever certification you haven’t already earned. The practice questions and answers (with explanations) for all three exams are great!”
