"I took Watermark’s CCBA Exam Prep class with you last Fall. I believe Watermark's resources helped me pass the exam the first time. The study guide and the online practice exams helped me understand the relationships between all those tasks, techniques, and elements. The brain dump before starting the exam was an excellent idea. I referred to it numerous times to reason out the best answer. And the mnemonics were the best."

"I passed my CCBA exam!! I attended the CCBA Certification Prep training, which was extremely helpful to outline the full scope of the BABOK and to give very helpful guidelines on key items that need to be understood. I read the BABOK twice. The Study Guide is a must have! It helped to define the level of concept details to study and had very useful quick tests and tasks to help remember details. The online drills and exams brought everything together and gave a good baseline to test my knowledge and restudy areas that were lacking. Also, the suggestions given to get through the exam on the day were invaluable. I plan to take the CBAP next year!"
