Description
This book will become your go-to reference during your journey to PMP® Exam success. It takes a deep dive into crucial subject areas commonly considered difficult by many exam candidates. These subject areas are explained in detail and supported by many diagrams in an easy-to-understand format. The topics are further reinforced by practical examples and sample questions. The result is an enriched learning experience to provide students with a deeper and better understanding of the knowledge needed to pass the PMP Exam. The PMBOK® Guide is an excellent project management standard and study source. However, it does not provide all the content needed to prepare for the PMP Exam. This book is designed to provide that content by filling-in-the-gaps while also simplifying the key areas of difficulty. The seven subject areas were not selected lightly. They were chosen based on much feedback from PMP aspirants over the years. In some cases, students experienced such a stressful dilemma during their studies that it discouraged them from writing the PMP Exam. Therefore, one of the key goals for this book is to steer you away from such a scenario. Here are the seven subject areas: 1. Configuration Management 2. Strategy for Situational Questions 3. Understanding ITTOs 4. Qualitative vs. Quantitative Risk Analysis 5. Earned Value Management (EVM) 6. Scheduling Network Diagrams (the forward and backward pass) and, 7. A proven step-by-step approach to pull all the needed information together in order to pass the PMP Exam Each of the seven sections the following information: 1. Subject areas are analyzed and explained in a very detailed and easy-to-understand manner. 2. Each section includes the estimated degree of difficulty and number of questions to expect on the exam 3. Subject related tips and tricks to enhance understanding 4. Each section provides the formulas (where needed), the supporting logic for each formula and their application 5. A recap segment summarizing the section's content 6. Subject area related question and answers to confirm understanding There is a feature section that discusses a very familiar scenario experienced by candidates when studying for the PMP Exam. This occurs when students experience an overwhelming information overload at some point during their study journey. Subsequently, they lose all faith in their ability to recall the information needed at exam time. We call this the 'Wall'. This is a discouraging event for any student to experience. Unfortunately, it happens all too often. We will explain this scenario in detail, define a proven strategy to manage this disheartening experience and offer a step-by-step approach to get you over the 'Wall'. Some might say there are other areas that can potentially present difficulties on the exam. That's why we included a Bonus Materials section that comprises items such as procurement contract calculations, communications calculations, project governance, motivational theorists and theories relating to project resource management, to name a few. The book covers strategies to better negotiate the PMP Exam. Such as the ability to identify and eliminate distractor or decoy options in order to answer questions correctly, quickly and confidently. There are 200 PMP Exam related quality questions included in this publication. We allocated 150 of these questions to the subject area chapters. The remaining 50 questions form a practice test that aligns with the demands of the real PMP Exam. This provides excellent practice and confirms the relevant understanding needed for the PMP Exam. Each question is weighted and accompanied by detailed answers. They include different question styles such as situational, knowledge, ITTO, etc. Repeat the test to boost your confidence Enjoy the book! We hope it brings you the PMP Exam success your study dedication deserves. Remember: reduce the risk - perfect your exam preparedness - pass the exam first time!
