Aileen’s view on PMP Exam Preparation

To learn to ride a bike, a person must ride a bike. To learn to pass the PMP Exam, a person must practice with hundreds and hundreds of PMP Exam Prep sample questions.

This book is the third book in her series of mini- books – PMP® Exam Preparation Simplified Series. Over the last 20 years Aileen has helped more than 10,000 project managers in her workshops obtain their PMP credential. Often the participants in Aileen’s workshops are successful project managers who may lack experience is specific topics on the PMP Exam. The topics that participants seem to struggle with the most include:

  • Earned value Management (EVM)
  • Contract types and calculations (FPIF, CPIF, PTA, etc.)
  • Network diagrams including float, free float, project float, leads and lags
  • Financial based questions i(IRR, ROI, etc.)
  • Statistical based questions

There is one thing all of these areas have in common and it is math.
