PMP3 - PMP3: PMI Authorized Project Management Professional (PMP) Certification Exam Prep

Introducing the updated PMI Authorized PMP ® Exam Prep v3—the official PMI prep course to advance your project management skills and prepare for the Project Management Professional (PMP ®) certification exam. It also helps to apply updated principles and concepts as a project manager.

Developed by PMI and validated by PMP ® certification holders, this course aligns to the PMP Exam Content Outline and satisfies the 35 training hours required to apply for the PMP ® certification. The course also provides access to online flash cards and several test bank questions that are provided by PMI. ®

The current PMP® exam is NOT based solely on the 6th or the 7th edition of the PMBOK® but rather on the 2021 PMI® Exam Content Outline and multiple references including the Agile Practice Guide. Our facilitators are contributors to the 5th, 6th and 7th editions of the PMBOK® and a Premier PMI®ATP and authorized PMP® instructors. They have also participated in the updating of the June 2021 content as well as being key developers of the v3 release of the PMP® course materials and practice questions.

Course materials:

Presentation slides and other content from PMI (including Mastery Questions and Answers)
Flash cards of PMP terms
Agile Introduction video
Test bank questions for each of the six lessons, plus agile concepts (presented 20 at a time to encourage continual review more frequently).
Greta’s Guide to ACE the PMP Book (available March 1 on Amazon in both hard copy and ebook versions)
Additional content for those preparing for the PMP exam (including having their application approved by PMI)

Test simulator with 2000+ test questions provided by PMI (and written by the same individuals who have written actual exam questions – but not accepted for the exam, mostly because duplicated questions or those very close in content). Random questions presented 60 at a time to replicate the exam environment.
