The IIBA® has produced an important update to its definitive Business Analysis Body of Knowledge, the BABOK® Guide.

Released in April 2015, the BABOK Guide includes major upgrades, ranging from the BA Core Concept ModelTM (BACCM), to changes to most Knowledge Areas, the addition of 16 new techniques, and the addition of an all-new section containing five perspectives on Business Analysis.

  1. I have a fair amount of commute time back n’ forth to work, plus a several hour drive monthly to our main office. I currently have a copy of the latest BABOK guide from my membership with IIBA but if an “audio” version of the guide were also available which I would pay $$ extra money to obtain, my certification process would likely be shorten considerably.
    Recently purchased a copy of your excellent CPAB certification guide. Thanks for all that you guys provide us for improving or BA skills.

    • Hi David,

      First of all, thank you for being a Watermark Learning customer! We’re so happy to hear that our CBAP Certification Study Guide is helping you in your exam preparation.

      I don’t believe there is an audio version of the BABOK. As a member of IIBA, you can download a free electronic copy of the BABOK, if you haven’t done so already. I have sent your suggestion for an audio version to IIBA. If you have additional questions regarding the BABOK itself, you can contact IIBA at or 1-866-789-4422.

      Thanks again, and have a great day!
