This course was fantastic, the course was well designed to suit for the people with little experience and knowledge or no experience at all to understand the concepts of BA and take part in the ECBA exam and do well. I haven’t completed the course yet, but I hope I’ll complete it by this week and I’ll be looking to attend the exam by this month itself.
This is my first online training and the trainer made is simple for me. I was initially worried how this is going to help me to get certified. The trainer knows what she is doing and she is very passionate about it. She depends on her real-life experience to teach the topics and that helps us to learn the knowledge areas more than practical that not. The topics were covered extensively and with case studies and experiences. This was an excellent course altogether!
Best ECBA course
I had a brief knowledge on Business Analysts. When I tried to answer some of the ECBA sample questions available online, I felt tough and I couldn’t answer more than 10 questions. That’s when I joined this course. The Trainer’s knowledge and experience with Business Analysis and with the IIBA certification helped me to learn the knowledge areas quickly. I got a fair bit of idea on what to prepare for the exam and I was able to successfully answer a sample questions all by myself after the training.
I had to say, I had a very great and fascinating experience with this course. I like the way Swati gone with the course and I could see her expertise in Business Analyst and explaining other about it. She also was certified she could tell what to expect and how to crack the exam. That helps a lot while preparing. Also the Course was extensive on the knowledge areas and gave me a wonderful learning experience. Overall the course was apt for someone who is eagerly looking to clear the ECBA exam and become a Certified Business Analyst.
The course was very easy to follow and is right up to the mark. The quick quiz at the end of each session was helpful and the lifetime access to the course makes it much more helpful to review the topics. Knowledge areas were well explained and I can directly open a particular Knowledge area which I would like to review. I’m about to take my ECBA exam this month and I’m confident that I would be able to clear the exam. Thank you for your guidance!
