Through its curriculum, the IREB provides a guideline for the amount of material to be covered during training, the training contents, and the time required for achieving the learning goals and carrying out practical exer- cises. In addition, a comprehensive and current term glossary and further information regarding the examination modalities can be found on the IREB website. Additional information about the International Requirements Engi- neering Board (IREB e.V.) and about the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering certification can be found on the IREB website: .

vii Foreword Dear reader, With Requirements Engineering Fundamentals , you are holding the official text book of the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) – Foundation Level certification in your hands. This book is based on the official curriculum (version 2.1) of the International Requirements Engi- neering Board e.V. (IREB) . A short introduction to the IREB and the certi- fication process can be found in the previous section “The Certified Pro- fessional for Requirements Engineering (CPRE) Exam”. The aim of this book is to aid you in your preparation for the certifi- cation examination of the Certified Professional for Requirements Engi- neering. The book is suited for your individual preparation for the exam- ination as well as for companion literature to training courses offered by training providers. In addition to the book, you should consider the information about the preparation for the certification examination published on the IREB website ( ). That additional information reflects updates of the curriculum (after version 2.1) and potentially amends this book with respect to some areas of interest. In addition, errata to this book are published there. Our decision to author this book collaboratively was not unjustified. The book at hand is meant to integrate long-lasting practical experiences with educational and research knowledge concerning the topic of require- ments engineering, in particular for the Foundation Level of the Certified Professional for Requirements Engineering. As a consequence, this book is based on the two best-selling books in the German language about requirements engineering by the two main authors:

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
