You have to take real experience in the field. On the other side, take a look to those linkeding groups: "PMI-PBA Study Group", "PMI Professional in Business Analysis (PMI-PBA) Prep Study Group". I can talk much because I am part of the certification exam questions subject matter expert group in the quality assurance field, but put your focus on PMBOK on those areas that you can map with the exam content outline.

Hello All,

Thanks for the great info. Since this was posted in 2015 i wonder if anyone has been successful in the exams and can share insight on what worked and what didn't.

I am planning on taking the exams in a few months time.

Regards.
