10 Suggestions for PMP Course Aspirants

First of all congrats for those all aspiring to be a PMP… for it is a great certification and also a greater responsibility when you handle projects. Here are the guidelines. 1. Register in PMI.ORG site for PMI membership by paying around 130 2. Being a PMI member will get you access to PMBOK handy guide which is very helpful for PMP. 3. Then contact any local PMP training centers…I did attend the boot camp with PMP course certification class in Singapore which was very good. The material and guidance given was great. 4. Now is the time you can buy books to assist you in your preparation. I would recommend Andy Crowe’s PMP Pass on First Try or Rita for reference. PMI site itself got lots of books and being a PMI Member gets you free access to 24*7 book store where you can find reference material on subjects like Risk Planning, Earn Value Management and Procurement 5. Once your finish attending mandatory training (boot camp) with any of the quality training providing institutions (my favorite is knowledgehut), please register for the exam having a date in mind. Check the PMI site for exam fee details. 6. Exam application itself is a lengthy process for you to map all your relevant project experience and education evaluation and the 35 hours mandatory course certificate you get from the boot camp. So have your details drafted out clearly as you start filling in the application form. 7. Now that you set your D Date in calendar and pay the exam fee to the nearest centre through prometric website. Concentrate on your preparation 8. Read the 42 processes in the given order carefully. Concentrate and recognize the flow of each process and their inputs and outputs along with tools and techniques. Once you are done with it, write down the formulas at least 5 times to memorize. This will help you during the exam 9. Read PMBOK study material thoroughly once 10. Now is the time to take the online practice exams with 4 hours for 200 questions. Take this practice test seriously, for these tests help you get used to the exam tension. Check the online knowledgehut Mock Exams. The Day before the exam, relax, read the process chart, formulas, glossary for definitions, eat well, and sleep early. On the day of the exam, keep yourself tension free, eat a good breakfast and schedule a exam around noon so that you will have time to revise your formulas and processes chart and head to your exam centre well in advance. Don’t forget to take your photo id card and the exam letter you received from the prometric centre. Besides everything put your experience and common sense and attention to best use for it will help clear PMP on first try with your preparation and experience. During the exam, try taking a break for 2-3 minutes after every 1 hour. This will not only help you get refreshed but also help you concentrate better during the rest of the exam. Try not getting distracted with anything around you. Use the tutorial time to brain dump any formulas or processes that you would like to refer during exam in the sheets given to you in the examination centre. Maintain utmost integrity and fullest attention in the best of 4 hours of your life that would bring in the most valued and cherished three letters behind your name: PMP!!! Cheers and Best of Luck Chi Wong

Should I put PMP after my name?

Once one obtains their PMP, also known as Project Management Professional status, the question is how do I let others know I now have this status? The 4 main places are: 1. Your business card. Once you obtain your PMP status order up some new business cards 2. The signature line in your email address. I would also recommend including an embedded hyperlink to your LinkedIn page. 3. The signature line or username on various websites you visit (message boards, LinkedIn, Face book, Twitter) 4. In your resume after your name, and within the education section. PMP certification status not only means you passed a test, it means you have been managing (or working as a team member) projects for several years and that you are willing to continue with continuing education to keep that status. This is also part of branding yourself.

PMI ACP Course Exam Questions to Prepare For

1. Time: The 3 hours to answer 120 questions were sufficient. I finished answering all questions in 2 hours. There were 4-5 questions which were not very clear and another 10-12 questions I marked for “review” later. I used my extra time to review those Marked questions to guess best answer PMI may be expecting. 2. AgileExams.com is very useful site in preparing for PMI ACP certification, The “Study Mode” taught me how to eliminate the wrong answers after reviewing the logical reasoning at arriving the correct answer. The “Full Exam” mode gave me required confidence to sit and answer 120 questions at a stretch. I used the “Short Exam” mode multiple times to boost my understanding. Overall AgileExams.com played a vital role in preparing and appearing confidently for this Certification exam. 3. Agile Practices: There were multiple questions on SCRUM and XP, very few questions on Kanban and Lean, almost none on Crystal, FDD, and DSDM. 4. Roles: Fully Understand the Roles in SCRUM and XP, what are the responsibilities carried by those roles, various meetings, input and outcome of those meetings like review, retrospective etc, 5. Scenario Based Questions: There were multiple questions based on scenarios and how best will you apply Agile practices under those scenarios. 6. Understand the difference between terms of coordination, collaboration and communication. Multiple questions on team Collaboration 7. Surprise questions on Agile Portfolio Management. 8. Multiple questions on Agile Risk Management. 9. Multiple questions on Story Points, Burn-down Charts and Velocity calculations. Overall PMI ACP certification training course exam is challenging and tests the knowledge of Agile Manifesto, Agile Principles, Agile Practices, and Agile Methodologies very well.

PMP Online Application form help

It’s one of the most complicated application forms which I have filled so far.:) If you need to apply for PMP exam online you need to prove that you have 4500 hours of PM experience within last 5 years. So I selected 2 projects, One, the duration was 2 years and the other, the duration was 3 years. Then I calculated the number of hours based on following processes Initiating Process Planning Process Executing Process Controlling Process And Closing Process How I did the calculation is as follows: If I have a Project X which Started on 01/01/2001 and ended on 30/12/2004, Number of month experience of Pming = 4 x 12 = 48 Number of days = 48 x20 (Average 20 working days per month ) = 960 So the PM experience gained from Project X is 960 x 8 (assume that we work 8 hours per working day) = 7680 So with Project X I have already covered the required number of PM hours for the PMP exam I distributed my total hours of PM experience in 5 areas as follows: Initiation 10% Planning 30% Executing 25% Controlling 30% Closing 5% But this might vary based on nature of your project management course. The PMP course exam fee is $405.00 Its bad that members cannot get the discounted rate at the first time itself. Why do we have to send email and inform them to give us the discounted rate, when the system already knows that you are a PMI member?? I don’t understand that.
