PMP Study Plan



There are many ways to approach preparation for the PMP Exam. The following is one straight forward option that will work. However, you may prefer to modify it to your own preferences.
 
1. Acquire a good quality Study Guide
This will allow you to logically study the PMP Material.
There is a fairly wide selection of resources available.
 
2. Review the material chapter by chapter in your Study Guide
Doing end of chapter/unit questions for each knowledge area is always good to help reinforce the learning process.
 
3. Review the PMBOK® Guide - Sixth Edition (Optional)
This is a good way to see the pure PMI PMP Material. It is actually quite a dry read if you can work your way through it.
 
4. Do an overall assessment of the different study areas and materials that work best for you
Additional reading materials, web sites, videos, flash cards, diagrams, brain dumps, PMP formula sheets, PMP Navigator are some examples.
 
5. Complete Practice Exams
These will help you get a good feel for the exam material and where to focus your efforts on. There are many sources of practice exams including PMP Simulator or Professor ITTO
 
6. Book the exam
The real motivation begins when you have committed to a given date to write the exam. This is where the study focus comes into play. Ensure that you have enough time to finalize your preparations.
