This comprehensive workshop will prepare you for the PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA)® exam and help you make the most of the limited study time you have.  The course was designed, created, and is taught by recipients of multiple credentials who have been awarded the PMI-PBA in order to help others focus on the critical areas to study and prepare for the exam.

It is current with the framework of knowledge outlined by the PMI-PBA  Examination Content Outline and includes over 700 sample PMI-PBA  exam questions to make you ready and know what to expect come test time.  Additionally, you’ll learn test-taking tips and strategies, along with other practice exercises to reinforce the material.

  • Streamline the massive amounts of information required to pass the test.
  • The small-class environment, group exercises, and hundreds of sample exam questions keep you engaged and aid in your retention and learning.

To assimilate the vast amount of information needed to pass the PMI-PBA exam, there is a mixture of lecture, discussion, exercises, and several practice exams in the course.  Be prepared to answer practice tests to simulate the exam, with discussions about why answers were correct or incorrect.  Many students find this one of the most helpful parts of the class.  You will also learn methods of recall and retention to help retain critical information needed to pass the PMI-PBA exam.
