Our CBA Learning Module Series is the premier BCBA/BCaBA curriculum supplement and exam prep tool. This is the program your professors and colleagues told you about--the one that approximately half of the people preparing for the BCBA/BCaBA exam use and for which there is a money-back guarantee. Many of our customers tell us that it is the only study tool you need. However, we know that the Cooper, Heron, & Heward (2020) text is essential material and the other resources below can also be very helpful, depending on your strengths and weaknesses. In particular, many people have found the Mayer, Sulzer-Azaroff, Wallace book, Behavior Analysis for Lasting Change 4th edition (2019) for the 5th Edition Task List & Behavior Analysis for Lasting Change 3rd edition (2014) for the 4th Edition Task List, to be up to date and easy to understand.

We conducted a survey of individuals who purchased a 6-month CBA LMS v8 license in September and October of 2017. The pass rate was 91.0% for first time BCBA exam takers, all confirmed by a review of the BACB’s Certificant Registry (http://info.bacb.com/o.php?page=100155).
The criterion for inclusion was completion of all learning modules to 100% correct; 107 individuals met this criterion. Using a combination of Survey Monkey emails, phone calls, and mailed letters, 97 (90.6%) responded. Of these participants, 74 reported taking the BCBA exam one time and passing, 7 reported taking the exam once and failing, 4 reported being retakers and 12 reported not ever taking the exam. 3 of the 74 who reported passing could not be verified on the BACB registry and are not included in the pass rate. Of the 4 retakers, 3 reported passing (2 of whom could be verified).
First time BCBA exam taker survey participants took the exam in November 2017 or February 2018. The BACB reports a pass rate of 64.7% and 62.7%, respectively. Note: the BACB pass rate data also includes the CBA Learning Module Series users. If there were a way to remove the CBA user data from the BACB’s data, the BACB pass rates would be even lower.
