    Two years back, I changed my career from Sales to Business Analyst, everything learnt in college, I thought I was confident in answering interview questions, but when I went through this course, I realised the difference between college teaching and how to bring that learning on to the table infront of an interviewer. Just brilliant. The course tells you what a Business Analyst should focus on, in short it portraits the technical roles differently with level of experiences. A must to attend!
