1.       Set an Action Plan: No matter what one is preparing for, having an action plan is important. Decide how many months or weeks you need to prepare for the certification and get hold of the study materials. Setting a goal can help you in a long way and in turn help you in the starting of the journey. A 3 month preparation time is sufficient for the CBAP Certification.  

2.       Collect your resources: Make sure you have all the study guides and resources that are essential. Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) is the core for the people preparing for the certification.

5.       A-Z about Knowledge Areas: A thorough knowledge of all the knowledge areas and the tasks related to them. Knowing the associated techniques of the input and output is equally important.

6.       Use Flash Cards: Take help from Flash Cards that offer the definition of each and every term of the Knowledge areas. This is an easy way to memorize the terms and can help you retain the definitions and terms.

7.       Practice is the key: It is also advised to not just rely on BABOK guide and take mock tests as well as supplementary guides to help you along the preparation.

8.       Get a CBAP Simulator: Getting a CBAP Simulator is a great way to test your knowledge. You will have a fair idea as what all to prepare from the BABOK guide as it contains all the important questions.
