Recommendations for 3rd party study aids for Pega Business Architect certification exam
I'm studying for the Pega Business Architect certification exam and I'm looking for recommendations on 3rd party study aids.
I've already completed the self-study course on the Pegasystems website and taken the practice exam. I'd like to find some good study aids like flashcards or other online practice exams to help me with additional exam preparation. I've googled the topic and found a few sites that claim to offer prep materials but some of them seem a bit shady or out of date (possibly providing materials on past version of the exam).
Has anyone found any reliable and up to date study aids online that they could recommend?

I recently completed my CPBA certification. Seriously, do not worry about outside material.
This is what you need. If you have not already, go to Pearsonvue and download the Blueprint for the CPBA exam. It gives you a breakdown of the exam including what parts will count most, the types of questions, and the number of questions and time limit.
From your courses it seems you already completed BA essentials and the practice exam. Go over the practice exam many times and read the information. Read answer feedback that explains why the correct answers are correct.
One thing you did not mention is DCO Essentials. If you have not, review that course. You will have questions relating to that course.
If you actually do the exercises, study what I mentioned, and take the practice exams there is no reason you should not pass it. Do not look for ways to cheat from outside sources. Shortcuts do not help you learn PEGA and it is unethical to cheat by trying to find the test questions and answers from non-PEGA sponsored entities.
Thank you for the thoughtful reply. But based on your last paragraph, I hope my original question did not imply that I was attempting to cheat.
I was only hoping to find additional study resources like flash cards and the like. Many legitimate organizations offer third party study materials for other professional certifications, such as Project Management Professional. Seeking outside study guides doesn't necessarily equate to cheating.
