This book was developed to bring direction and answers to PMP(r) candidates along their PMP certification journey and to become a trusted and close companion they can count on during the final stretch before exam day. Who is this book written for? - Individuals who are looking for a reliable and useful source of information and guidance to get started with their PMP certification journey. - Exam prep students who have already started their training but are uncertain about the best strategy and training path to reach their goal with confidence and on budget. - PMP exam candidates who have completed their core training and seek expert guidance and reassurance to get organized for their final sprint and perform at their peak on exam day. - Trainers and instructors who are interested in bringing the PMCampus training manual to their students. After many years in the project management training industry and running PMCampus.com, we identified a need for another type of training manual to help PMP exam candidates. Most books dedicated to PMP(r) exam preparation are excellent at providing a large quantity of subject matter information and that is undeniably very helpful to candidates, for most of their learning journey. However, what we believe is missing is a training manual demystifying the kickoff and final sprint of the PMP exam process. Through this book we aspire to fill this gap and coach students into a successful mindset. The first steps toward preparing for the PMP exam are often the most difficult for prospective students, and this book will provide expert guidance for a successful start. The final sprint before the exam is an endeavor of a different kind. In this phase, to be at peak performance, candidates need to manage stress as well as gain clarity and certainty about their training approach. This training manual provides not only a frame of reference for subject matter mastery but it also supports skills and confidence building, both being equally important in passing the PMP exam. Readers will also find stories shared by PMCampus.com alumni, who have walked the same path and can provide answers to many of the questions and concerns candidates face. This helpful information won't be found in other PMP prep guides. The initial pages of this book are dedicated to offering coaching advice, secrets, tips and exercises for successful PMP exam preparation. Then, the book content moves onto the more focused final subject matter review presented by our project management experts, where students can rely on our comprehensive, must-know checklists as they advance to the final phase of their exam preparation journey. This book is organized to guide the reader through the initial steps and on to the last week for peak performance on exam day. This book is organized into three main parts: - Chapter 1 - Before preparing for the exam: advice, tips, and alumni stories. - Chapters 2 to 7 - Last days before taking the exam: comprehensive subject matter review covering all 5 processes and 10 project management knowledge areas tested at the exam. - Chapter 8 - The day before taking the exam, exam-day, and life after the exam. Candidates can use this training manual in the last week of preparation or even better, earlier, to plan ahead and know what to expect in that final week well before it arrives. We hope this cost-effective training tool will help many students make smart choices; save time, effort and money; and ultimately achieve their PMP(r) certification with confidence and on budget.This book was developed to bring direction and answers to PMP(r) candidates along their PMP certification journey and to become a trusted and close companion they can count on during the final stretch before exam day.
