    I've been in the same boat. I think I stumbled on the same $125 option but can't find it anymore.

    Randell1234 seemed to have posted a low-cost preparation resource.

    If you're a Post 9/11 Veteran, there is a free program (that does not count against your GI Bill) that leads to PMP certification:

    Career Transition | IVMF

    Please consider the VCTP at Syracuse.

    It is of no cost to Post 9/11 Veterans (Does not use your GI Bill.)

    They're accepting applications now for the January 2014 Cohort.

    The training is chiefly online, via skillport.

    You can watch an informational webinar at this link:

    VetNet Special Presentation: Veterans Career Transition Program (VCTP) Overview - YouTube

    I commented about it some in this thread:

    I posted my raw interview notes in this thread:

    Hope this helps.

    The process for getting a PMP certification is the same worldwide:

    1. Apply for the PMP at PMI Login
    2. Pay for the PMP exam fees (Member: USD$405; Non-member: USD$555)
    3. Within 90 days you must submit your proof of degree, 35 PDU hours, and signed experience verification forms
    4. You will then receive an authorization email to sit for the exam which you can schedule
    The prerequisites for sitting the exam are as follows:

    • Secondary degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or the global equivalent)
    • 7,500 hours leading and directing projects
    • 35 hours of project management education

    • Four-year degree
    • 4,500 hours leading and directing projects
    • 35 hours of project management education
    You can earn the PDUs by taking online courses. If you like learning in small, bite-sized chunks, you may want to check out GoSkills’ PMP Certification Training course.

    The course is accessible on-demand so you can study for the PMP exam and earn the 35 contact hours on the go and in your own time.

    GoSkills is a Registered Education Provider with the Project Management Institute (PMI), which means the course meets PMI’s criteria for quality and content.
    By the end of the course, you should be able to:

    • Recognize the PMP® certification requirements and application process.
    • Recognize the context and constraints of project management and project leadership.
    • Identify the five process groups and the process within each group.
    • Identify the ten knowledge areas and the processes with each area.
    • Identify the inputs, outputs, tools and techniques of each project management process.
    • Demonstrate how to calculate critical path and float.
    • Demonstrate how to calculate earned value metrics and ratios.
    • Earn the required 35 contact hours or PDUs to put towards certification with PMI.
    When you complete the course, you will get a certificate that you can add to your LinkedIn profile and resume to showcase your skills. And, you’ll be prepared to ace to PMP exam and attain that coveted certification.

    You could have just included a link instead of all that cut-and-paste.
