How to Get PMP Certified in Two Weeks

I received my Project Management Professional Certification in January, 2011.  I’ve been asked by several people on my strategy as I only had two-weeks to study before my exam date.  Here was my strategy.  Please note this may not work with everyone. 

PMP Exam Prep Strategy

Tools:  PMBOK 4th edition, Crosswind PMP Exam Success Series:  Bootcamp Manual

  • Before doing any studying, I took the 200 question assessment that was provided by Crosswind CD (back of the book).  The assessment showed process groups that I needed to improve. 
  • I started studying each of the process groups, taking the practice test along with the CD assessment for that process group.   I focused heavily on process groups that I scored low based on the initial assessment.

  8. An agile process tends to focus on iterations, and client feedback, to allow for the inevitabilty of changing requirements whereas a waterfall process tries to define all requirements up front, and tends to be inflexible to changing requirements. You can learn more about agile and scrum by referring to some free resouces (http://www.scrumstudy.com/free-resources.asp) provided by scrumstudy or by attending any agile scrum certification courses. I would personally suggest Agile Expert Certified course or Scrum Master Certification to you.

  26. A smallish campaign with a homemade list would not be likely to yield much of a result. To achieve anything worthwhile, a much more aggressive effort is needed. Then, the age-old value analysis applies: projected earnings = margin on total projected sales - cost of campaign.
