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(r) Exam, a person must practice with hundreds and hundreds of PMP(r) Exam Prep sample questions. This book is the third book in our series of mini- books - PMP(r) Exam Preparation Simplified Series Over the last 16 years Aileen has helped over 10,000 project managers in her workshops obtain their PMP(r) credential. Often the participants in Aileen's workshops are successful project managers who may lack experience is specific topics on the PMP(r) Exam. The topics that participants seem to struggle with the most are: 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 including IRR, ROI, etc. Statistical based questions There is one thing all of these areas have in common and it is math. Aileen has decided to create mini-books in each of these areas so that students can gain both the knowledge and the confidence to get these questions right. Many project managers want to study just enough to pass the PMP(r) Exam and not one second more.Aileen's view is to practice on enough sample questions in each area so that the project manager is confident he/she will never get a question in that area wrong. While the primary goal of this book and Aileen's workshops is to help you pass the PMP(r) Exam, Aileen hopes that you will also walk away as a more knowledgeable and successful project manager.
