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 Babok3 content so that the information can be quickly recalled when the candidate is attempting the CBAP exam. This study group will begin the process of familiarity with the Babok 3 and the location of its content. Candidates will discover that during CBAP exam preparation, they will read the Babok 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 Babak 3 content with group discussion.

What to expect: 

We'll lead a discussion of the BABOK  introduction, each knowledge area, helping you understand the goal of specific business analysis activities, key tasks involved, relationships of various artifacts and deliverables. There's lots of time for questions and discussion.

What you have to do: 

To get value from these sessions, you will need to read the Babok 3 chapters before each week's session. Babok 3 can be purchased from
