    How tough are they actually on the work experience for the PMP? I read on another forum that they actually audit around 10% of the test takes but noone was ever heard of failing the audit.

    I just passed my PMP exam today and here is what I used:

    1. The PMBOK (obviously)
    2. The PMP Exam: How To Pass On Your First Try (3rd Edition), Andy Crowe
    3. The author of the above book also has a pretty good online prep system that I took for $99/month (

    I spent a little over two months studying for the exam and did very well. I read each of the two books twice and went through the online prep course twice. They audit 30% of the applications for the exam by the way (I was one of those lucky 30% guys). The process is kind of a pain and you should assume that you'll be audited.

    I don’t recall the exact percentage but they do audit a certain percentage.In fact, someone I used to work with was audited. When I prepared my work experience, I made sure I used projects in which I stayed in contact with the manager or could easy get in contact with them in case I was audited and needed them to sign off on my project hours. Preparing the work experience was half the battle

    Online PMP Resource offers inexpensive online course inluding material, support during the membership. You can also earn 35 contact hours for as little as $99.
    They have a very structured and organized material and heard that other institutes also using their product.
    I think, they are the most economical and most effective provider to get PMI approved contact hours and prepare for PMP Certification Exam.

    I did PMP. You don't need a prep. course.

    Read the PMBoK and work through the book "PMP Exam Prep, Fifth Edition: Rita's Course in a Book for Passing the PMP Exam".

    That should be enough.

    Good luck!

    With absolutely no project management experience? In other words can a mediocre student with average intelligence (me!) just pick up your recommended study materials and pass the exam?

    I thought there was a work experience component to the test?

    Suppose I could use your process and pass the CAPM?

    Without any PM experience you won't get a chance to sit the test.

    During the application process you have to verify a certain amount of hours worked as a PM (company, project name, your role, project content, duration, budget, and so on). The amount depends on your education level.

    For PM starters there is the CAPM.

    Good luck!

    PS: Yes, I believe it would be possible to get enough points without experience. But I guess it is very hard to learn with our "real examples in mind".

    need some advice

    i planned to go for PMP exam.
    i have sufficient experience (3 years) to qualify but unfortunately i dont have sufficient documentation to support it, worrying i might get audited and disqualified from taking the exam, should i apply for the exam and get a green light before i spend any money on exam prep course or books??

    anyone can suggest some template for me to prepare my working experience?

    I guess your all links have been deleted and I would like to do PMP and need any help with free material you could provide.
