"Excellent materials! The study guide and the exams are very helpful. Personally, I like the exams - that suits my learning style.”
—Pauline Downey, CBAP (United States)
"Watermark’s CBAP Certification Preparation class was the key element in earning my CBAP certification. I attended the class as offered in a virtual format and found that to be extremely informative as well as very flexible with my schedule. The instructor was excellent and provided many useful methods to enhance our learning process in addition to keeping the class interesting, and at times, humorous. While the memorization of Knowledge Areas, Tasks and Techniques was helpful, understanding the concepts to apply to scenarios was most useful to me. The practice exams were also very helpful by allowing me to assess how well I was absorbing the information and where I needed to focus my study. I highly recommend Watermark’s class and tools as preparation for this exam.”
—Barry Christenson, CBAP, Community Medical Centers (United States)
"I'm delighted that I passed the CBAP exam a few hours ago, on the first attempt! I worked hard to reach the suggested 80% score [in the Online Study Exam], and I only achieved it a few days before the exam. Thirty minutes before I walked into the exam center, I was able to score 100% in a KA. That boosted my confidence level that made me finish the test within 2 hours. This is an excellent tool, and I would seriously recommend anyone preparing for the CBAP exam to make good use of this resource. Its much tougher than the real exam.”
—Jibs Ajia, CBAP (United States)
