A very good position for everyone who thinks of pursuing the IIBA certification or just want to learn more about BABOK framework. The course has a good structure, explaining everything in detail. There are still some minor things to work on (from a technical point of view) but overall the quality of the materials is good. A test after every chapter is a nice way to check yourself against and the online option is just so 'learning on the sofa' comfortable. Give it a try!
