The Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential is a valuable and globally recognized certification for project managers
PMP® EXAM PREP - GETTING STARTED
There is a ton of stuff on the web related to PMP® exam preparation...
There are 'free' practice questions of dubious authority
There is a vast sea of the blind leading the blind, and 'experts' with hidden agendas
One can spill a lot of cycles browsing through all this...
I see earnest PMP candidates slipping down this path all the time. Sometimes it amounts to avoidance behavior.
Our goal at Project-Road Training, LLC is to point you in the right direction, and help you conserve cycles -- focusing your efforts in the most efficient way possible to prepare for the exam.
Here is what we have to offer, to help you succeed:
1. Our eBook:
Provides the high-level guidance you need to focus on the right material and stay on track. Read it carefully. It is not long.
2. Study Strategy: Guidance through a Series of Videos
There is much to study to prepare for the PMP Exam. We provide a strategic framework to guide your effort.
You will find this guidance in a series of short videos here.
3. How to get the required 35 hours of PMP® training
I teach a 4-day PMP exam prep classroom course. This is a great class. I love teaching it, and my students find it very helpful. The face-to-face interactions within the classroom are a valuable part of the learning experience.
Often, the logistics and expense of getting everyone in one place for a classroom course are just too difficult and expensive. In this case, my e-Learning course is an excellent and cost-effective alternative.
4. The Study Guide that I recommend:
Crosswind's “PMP® Exam Success Series: Bootcamp Manual”
(Version 6.0 -- aligned with Sixth Edition PMBOK® Guide)
available at Amazon.com
This study guide is an integral component of my recommended study strategy for wresting the PMBOK® Guide under control.
I have examined all of the leading study guides, and I consider Crosswinds the best. In particular, I consider it far, far better than the market leader that many people tend to recommend!
5. Our Study Group
For paying customers of our eLearning course, we offer an online study group, where we cover a different topic each week.
This is coordinated within our Student Portal.
We also conduct in-person study groups in the Chicagoland area, organized through this Meetup Group
