Online Study Group anyone? 

I just ordered my BABOK Audio Flashcards and CBAP Study Guide from Watermark. Anyone interested in starting our own study group online? We could meet through skype ( my contact name is cottonfamily17) and we can review the templates here on modern analyst, review how to fill out the application, go through a couple chapters and discuss them every time we meet online. 

Anyone interested? Let me know by replying to this post.

Thank you,

Sarah

Vishal:

Where to start studying the BABOK?  That is a great question!   

The authors of the BABOK state that there is no "starting point"  so to speak.   Notice how the BABOK is organized by liberal use  input/process/output diagrams.   Input/output diagrams are essentially non-integrated data flow diagrams (why the BABOK did not use integrated diagrams, ie. DFD's is a topic of great importance in its own).   Input/output diagrams are non-sequential in nature.  Basically, any task can start at any point, provided required inputs to the task are present.

If there was a "start" and a "finish" to the BABOK, the authors would have undoubtely used sequence based diagramming techique, as these are easier for most to follow. 

So, I suggest just jumping into a section that looks interesting.

Also, always remember, the BABOK presents what is popular, not what is logically correct.   Often there is a significant difference between the two.
