—Mohammed Maher, CBAP (Qatar)

"I cleared CBAP exam! Though I tried to read BABOK multiple times, nothing was getting to my mind till I started using the CBAP Certification Study Guide and the Online Study Exam. The mnemonics to remember each Knowledge area concepts opened up a structured approach to read BABOK. In fact I too started building up my own mnemonics to remember the concepts. The exam tips given in the Study Guide made a huge difference during my exam. Thanks a lot for making it happen!"
Preetha Ramakumar, CBAP (India)

—John Rauterberg, CBAP (Canada)

Eve M. McGivern, CBAP

“I purchased both your study guide and 30 days of the CBAP online exam prep. I wanted to say how very helpful each was in passing the CBAP exam. The book provided excellent learning techniques, including the types of questions and pitfalls to expect on the exam, test-taking strategies, and key points to remember. The online exam prep provided the ability for a user to focus in on 'problem' areas for deeper study, with the flexibility of a simulated exam, or instant feedback after each question (including an explanation for the answer, and where to reference in the BABOK). I passed the exam on the first try, and your exam prep definitely assists in thinking about how to answer the questions on the exam.

On a related note, I had the opportunity to talk to the staff at Watermark Learning and they were very professional and courteous, and went out of their way to offer assistance towards helping pass the exam. I would not hesitate to recommend them for your exam preparation efforts.”
—Eve M. McGivern, CBAP (United States)

A CBAP in Connecticut

"Got the book and read it 3 times, as well as the BABOK. The authors supplemented the BABOK very well and explained/cleared up some areas better. There is a Glossary of CBAP terms and practice questions. The authors also did a great job on explaining the tools a BA can use and where they are applied within the knowledge areas and tasks. I passed the exam on my first try! Thank you!"

CBAP Online Study Exam

Vijay Kumar Kanamarlapudi, CBAP, PAHM

"I purchased CBAP Online Study Exam and was confident to perform well. The Online Study Exam questions helped me in managing time, reasoning, and eliminating the wrong answers. This tool helps you prepare for the exam, and I would recommend it to BAs who want to crack the CBAP Exam!”
—Vijay Kumar Kanamarlapudi, CBAP, PAHM (United States)

Dagmar Cole, CBAP

"I had other practice exams but was frustrated when presented with the "correct" answer, trying to understand, "why is this correct and the others not"?   The Watermark practice exam does not just provide the correct answer, but the logic behind the correct answer selection. I thought the CBAP was easier than the Watermark exam, and passed on the first attempt.  Thank you Watermark!"
—Dagmar Cole, CBAP (United States)

Partha Mishra, CBAP

"The Online Study Exam from Watermark has been a great help in preparing and helping me to clear the CBAP exam in the first attempt. In all, I attempted around 2000 questions and more in the simulated exams, chapter wise drills, and warmups. Yes, some questions would repeat and the key is to learn and relearn. The explanations for wrong answers are very helpful and aligned with the BABOK, unlike many other floating around. When I started off with the exam simulations, the percentages were way off the desired standards and steadily improved. The last few days before the exam I used to average between 80 to 90 percent and that gave me a lot of confidence for the real one. Thanks again Watermark for providing this product which has been a great help."
—Partha Mishra, CBAP, First Gulf Bank (United Arab Emirates)

Onyinye Emmanuel Ohagwu, B.Eng, CBAP, ITIL, MCP

"I sat for my CBAP exam and passed at one sitting. Many thanks to Watermark Learning. I first enrolled for a Business Analysis course but my friends could not stop talking about Watermark Learning practice questions. I researched extensively on the internet and the story remained positive, and then, I decided to subscribe. I practiced extensively until I started scoring 90 and above. I went for the exam and passed at one sitting. Thank you and keep up the good job!"
—Onyinye Emmanuel Ohagwu, B.Eng, CBAP, ITIL, MCP (Canada)

Tarun Agarwal, CBAP

"I am super happy to share that I passed my CBAP exam in my first attempt last Friday. I used Watermark's online study exams and found them very useful in getting familiar with the format of the exam. The questions in the Watermark question bank are a close approximation of the actual exam, and the explanations given to choose the right answer really help in understanding the tricks required to pass the exam. I highly recommend Watermark to anyone who is serious about gaining the CBAP designation."
—Tarun Agarwal, CBAP (Canada)

Darren Brown, CBAP, PMP

"I would most certainly recommend a subscription to the Watermark Learning site to anyone writing the CBAP.

—Darren Brown, CBAP, PMP (Canada)

—Lata Gupta, CBAP, Capital One, Inc. (United States)

Kathy Bieltz, PMP, CBAP

"I'm pleased to announce I passed the CBAP exam recently! There were some questions for which the answer could not be deduced from the question. By being able to eliminate made-up terms you are able to select the 'Correct' answer. The Watermark Online test has similar questions and was very helpful in learning how to find the correct answer using CBAP test logic."
—Kathy Bieltz, Senior Consultant, PMP, CBAP (United States)

Philip Wood, CBAP

“I officially became a CBAP last week and I must admit your exam played a large part in that process.

—Philip Wood, CBAP (Australia)

—Swapnil Patil, CBAP (India)

I owe a great deal of my success to your online study exam.
—Morgan Lee, CBAP, Plato Consulting Inc. (Canada)

I used this tool for 5 weeks practicing almost every day and finally passed CBAP exam last week. Thank you very much for providing such a wonderful tool for CBAP exam preparation."
—Tatiana Sergueeva, CBAP (Canada)

Suzanne Gaffey, CBAP

—Suzanne Gaffey, CBAP (Australia)

Ljubica Davcevski, CBAP

“I passed the CBAP on Aug. 16. My brain still hurts! I had 20 days and preparation tests purchased from 2 companies, one of them being Watermark Learning. Comparing to the other company, Watermark tests were more helpful because: 1) the format of your exams (internet, interactive, real exam simulation), 2) the questions were more tricky, therefore closer in style to the CBAP test itself, 3) there are more questions, and 4) the answers refer to the BABOK.

I spent about 150 hours preparing for the exam. After reading each BABOK chapter, I completed 2-3 drill tests from the Watermark exam. I completed one Watermark warm-up test, and one exam simulation test (there was no time and energy for more). The time was really tight for me, and I wouldn’t have passed the CBAP without your practice tests.”
—Ljubica Davcevski, CBAP (Canada)

Ritesh Soni, CBAP, CSM

"I sat for my CBAP exam and passed at one sitting, I owe much of it to Watermark Learning. Watermark Learning’s online study exam simulator with the 'drill section' of each Knowledge area assisted me to have an in-depth review of the BABOK®. Each of my incorrect answers were referenced to BABOK sections (page wise). Along with a wide choice of questions from different knowledge areas with explanation and link to the source in BABOK really helped. The study guide and the online practice exams helped me understand the relationships between all those tasks, techniques, and elements. I highly endorse and recommend the Watermark Learning - CBAP online study exam!!!! Thank you and keep up the good job!"
—Ritesh Soni, CBAP, CSM (India)

Gabriela Tulcan, CBAP

“After doing some research on available tools on the market, I chose the Watermark Learning CBAP Online Study Exam for the final preparation before the exam. The Study Drill section was a very effective tool to wrap up all the learning, assess my knowledge of each KA of the BABOK and find the gaps. It pointed me back to the exact BABOK paragraph, for which I needed to deepen my knowledge. I then used Exam Simulation to get myself familiar with the examination technique. It was critical to get used to the question style, the terminology, and the time to stay focused. And in the end, it gave me the confidence to say to myself, “I am ready to take the CBAP Exam”. And, now I passed and I am a CBAP!”
—Gabriela Tulcan, CBAP (Canada)

Julia Hamilton, CBAP

“Watermark Learning's CBAP online practice exam was exactly what I needed to ensure that I was prepared for the CBAP exam. Upon completing a practice exam, it showed me my overall score with a breakdown by knowledge area. This breakdown showed me which sections of the BABOK I needed to reread. It also allowed me to tailor my practice test to cover the areas I needed to focus on. For me, reading the BABOK and taking Watermark Learning's practice exams worked really well.

I just passed the CBAP exam yesterday! The practice test was very similar to the real test, so I knew what to expect. Because I was scoring well on the practice tests, I had confidence going into the test center, which helped me relax. This same confidence also helped me get a good night's sleep the night before the test. Thank you, Watermark Learning, for making such a helpful practice test!”
—Julia Hamilton, CBAP (United States)

Kagisho Mabitle, CBAP

"Thank you, Watermark Learning, for playing a role in achieving my CBAP dream. I certainly would have not passed without the Watermark On-Line Practice Exams. Over 2,000 questions later, I walked into the exam room with maximum confidence. Needless to say, the exam had nothing on me!"
—Kagisho Mabitle, CBAP, Standard Corporate and Investment Bank (SCIB) (South Africa)

Initially, I was not sure if only Watermark Learning test simulations will be enough other than me studying the BABOK a couple of times, but after going through some BA blogs on the web, I was confident that the kind of questions in Watermark Learning will be sufficient. I wanted to thank your team for such useful test simulations that you have provided for CBAP aspirants and I am sure I would have not achieved this certification without Watermark Learning exams. I recommend Watermark tests strongly for anyone aspiring for CBAP.”

"Watermark Learning helped a lot in passing the CBAP. I decided to use the Online Study Exam after the 5-day trial that I got from buying the CBAP Certification Study Guide. All your tools are very helpful. The book helped me in memorizing the KA and the tasks for each KA. The online tool exam is nothing but EXTRAORDINARY! I enjoyed the fact that I was able to use it on different devices. No restrictions! I answered over 2500 questions during one month. The goal was not to obtain a grade over 90 percent but to have the explanations. I took drill questions after each KA. This gave me confidence and strategies to eliminate wrong answers."
