Looking for good study material for the PMP exam. Thank you!
I like PMP Precast it not only has the closest questions to the exam but a very engaged forums community with guidance.
I recommended getting the simulator the questions are very similar to the test.
Thank you for your services Hayden. You already have received good recommendations. I would add referring Andy Crowe's book.
Hello Hayden, send me a note and we can sync up. I started my prep for PMP in May and passed in July, We can discuss bootcamps, application and experience assertion, study strategies. I found that the process and terminology directly helps with military skill translation as well (Stakeholders, scope, procurements).
This is a decision you need to make soon. The PMP Exam changes on January 2, 2021. It is a big change. You need to get a PMBOK Guide and the Agile Practice Guide and committ the next 6-8 weeks to intense study (10+ hours a week). I like the Rita PMP Exam Prep book and often use it in my classes. There are several Veterans Day specials out there PM Academy and PMI Tampa Bay have one that I know of.
Check out the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University. They run a program called Onward to Opportunity (O2O) that provides a career skills certification program and military to civilian career transition counseling. Upon successful completion of their certification program coursework (free), they cover the cost of your certification exam. The Project Management Professional certification is one of their many offerings. I am a graduate of their PMP program and couldn't give a higher recommendation for a military career transition program. Check them out at: https://ivmf.syracuse.edu/apply/our-programs/ or https://ivmf.syracuse.edu/programs/career-training/.
The materials from Rita Mulcahy's company are excellent (https://rmcls.com/).
The military institute at Syracuse offers this material and the testing free for veterans. I have heard great things about Syracuse's staff and being very accommodating.
Check out this prep course on LinkedIn - it's free for one month, but if you continue past that point you'll have to subscribe: https://www.linkedin.com/learning/cert-prep-project-management-professional-pmp?trk=ceu_project_management_landing_page_learning
You can also try this PMP exam simulator: https://www.pm-exam-simulator.com/pmp-exam-simulator/free-pmp-exam-simulator?_ga=2.46308967.1923903948.1601658947-573131785.1601658947. Again, it's only free for the trial period - this time it's one week. It includes three prep exams during that period.
Finally, I recommend looking at these sites:
1. https://www.pmi.org/certifications/types/project-management-pmp/earn-the-pmp/pmp-exam-preparation. It has free resources and tips for exam prep, including an exam content outline, sample exam questions, and more.
2. https://www.greycampus.com/blog/project-management/top-tips-to-crack-the-PMP-exam-in-your-first-attempt - this includes free flashcards, sample PMP questions, and other downloadable study materials.
I hope this is helpful!
