I've never come across an online course where the tutor goes to this much detail regardless of the audience, it feels as though she takes audiences of all levels of competence into consideration, as a beginner who knows nothing about Business analysis, I feel this course is so worth it, the way she goes into so much detail, helps me understand, light bulbs just keep switching on when she presents the chapters, and makes me want to continue to the next chapter to learn more. Her tone is so patient, I'd recommend this course to all of you starting out or just wanting to understand better, I hope if and when I do future courses that Deidre will be the tutor for them as well, I love her technique of teaching (one can hear she has the mind of a business analysts through and through). I feel I confident and can take on the role of a business analyst after this course, seriously, highly recommend!

I had already completed the Business Analysis Pathway Course for my ECBA, really enjoyed it and learned a lot. However, what I liked about the ECBA Master Class is that it really focused in on the types of questions that I needed to know for the IIBA exam. One thing to keep in mind is that the Master Class uses the BABOK wording more or less exactly as written; however, for the IIBA exam the concepts are the same, but the questions and answers are written without using the exact BABOK wording; therefore, it is good to really know the concepts.
