PMP Study guide Book Preview
Big Thank you …I passed
Hello Kavita, I passed my PMP exam on 3rd July. This is express a Big ” Thank you” for helping me to pass PMP certification exam.
Your course material had a significant,…in fact most significant impact on my passing caliber. I am not sure if I would have passed without “practice test” which I purchased on Kindle.
I started learning PMP with a book written by one of my colleagues in HP, Then I went for a course to get 35 hours. And then I went for your Book pass PMP in 21 days … “The turning point” of my preparation.
Rest you know already ..your course material + let’s play modules + quiz + test series=PMP passed, Many many Thanks,
I cleared the PMP exam today. Honestly I just read your book and did knowledge area wise questions, one of your mock tests. So if someone follows your 21 days plan I believe, will be able to pass. Thanks Again
I just passed my PMP on my first attempt with Above Targets in all five domains. Your Easy Study Guide was by far the most valuable resource I used – and the most affordable! I am preparing to make the transition from active duty military service and am trying to decide what I want to be when I grow up. In addition to working within personnel directorates, I have had many project management opportunities and deployed a transportation company overseas. The Military Decision Making Process, Mission Analysis, Course of Action Development and a whole lot of good old OJT on-the-job training have been invaluable but I have a an Army acronym loaded language that is very different from what I need to speak Project Management capitalized!
I first tried some online videos through a program I use for HR continuing education after being very impressed with their live seminars. Awful! Twenty minutes of instruction followed by a hundred questions I couldn’t answer. Then I spent over $700 on a course with live webinars. I admired the instructor but after the first couple of classes, I found myself falling behind, exhausted, lacking the courage to ask questions for fear of looking dumb, and just not understanding the process paths. The classes were three hours a night every night for five days, two days off and then another three hours a night for five more days. With full time employment and life in general, this gave me no time to read and absorb. The program offered weekend classes but I was less happy with that instructor and had become frustrated.
My husband bought me your book with only 23 days until my exam (which was on the last possible date to test under the 5th edition). I loved your book! This may sound silly, but the beyond adorable cartoons and gamification helped me regain my joy in learning. The “voice” you use in your book is wonderful. If you teach your classes the same way, I can see why your students adore you and have begged you to put together a book!
After completing your Study Guide, I did go back and rewatch some of the taped webinars and took several of that program’s computerized practice tests. I know I learned even more but only because you had given me a superb foundation.
If you are going to update your Study Guide for the PMBOK 6th Edition, I would love an opportunity to be a proofreader. In the role of student, I can point out any spots where there have been little typos like PV changing from one number to another in the same example, something weird happening with a network or an answer perhaps needing a bit more explanation for someone at my level – I sure struggled with that EMV one!). I minored in American literature back in college and, without changing any paragraphs from your voice, could make some suggestions for quick edits to verb tense or sentence structure. In case you think I’m being entirely altruistic, it would be a very pleasant way for me to learn the 6th edition materials and might even quality for some PDUs!
I hope to hear from you and thank you again,
Jennifer P. Mlocek, PMP, SHRM-SCP, MPA
