How To Answer Business Analyst Interview Questions


If you are looking for a scientific way to boost your business analysis skills or ace your Business Analyst Job Interviews, start using practice tests.

Research has shown that practice tests or quizzes improve retention, recall or understanding.

Research has also proven that workers who study and take quizzes have better long-term recall than their colleagues who study without taking quizzes.

Don’t use practice tests only in preparation for certification exams because they are useful for much more than that!

How Do I Become A Business Analyst?

Question

Hi,

I am a senior in college majoring in Management Information Systems.

I’ve recently interned with a company as a Business Analyst and decided that’s what I want to be when I grow up.

I am wondering if there is any certifications or training I should do before I graduate in May 2013.

If so- are there some that are more prestigious than others? Any to stay away from?

Obviously I want to gain more knowledge, have a better understanding and develop some useful skills before graduating and becoming a BA.

    How Do I Become A Business Analyst?

    Question

    I am working towards becoming a business analyst in state government and I would like to transfer my supervisor skills over into this field.

    What should my first steps be to prepare for this transition?

    I have a strong interest in entering the business analyst field as a career path, however, it is very difficult to access this field as a state government worker.

    Many individuals have entered this field by knowing someone or networking.
