Familiarity with the Babok 3 for use in CBAP exam preparation
Hourly credits toward CBAP exam professional development requirement.
Scope and Purpose:
The scope of the study group sessions are to review and discuss the Babok 3 content to become familiar with the Babok 3 in preparation for the CBAP exam. To pass the CBAP exam candidates will need to know the Babok 3 content so that the information can be quickly recalled when the candidate is attempting the CBAP exam. This course will begin the process of familiarity with the Babok 3 and the location of its content and practice with relevant CBAP exam questions. Candidates will discover that during CBAP exam preparation, they will read the Babok 3 many times. Knowing the location of the content and comprehension of the material will be key to success for exam preparation and attaining CBAP certification. Regardless if the candidate takes a CBAP preparation course or studies on their own with test preparation materials, knowing the Babok 3 will be key to study efficiency and exam success. The advantage of group study is to learn the content with a cohort and reinforce Babok 3 content with group discussion and review of hundreds of CBAP practice questions.
