How to prepare for the PMP exam part 4: essential study materials

Cornelius Fichtner, PMP | Nov. 8, 2010
Most certified project management professionals (PMPs) will tell you that passing the PMP certification exam requires a considerable amount of studying. Here's a list of essential study materials you'll need to be successful.

The one online resource that I recommend are PMP exam discussion forums. These forums are a great place to interact with others who are also preparing for the exam. Many PMPs, including myself, continue to visit these forums even after we've become certified. We answer questions about our experience before and after the exam and help out with the practical application of the PMI framework. These forums are a great way to build your professional network so they're well worth your time and effort--as long as you don't use them as an excuse not to pick up your books and study. Try the forums at PMHUB, PM Zilla and O'Reilly.

In my next article, I'll cover how to study for the exam. Since successful PMP exam takers studied, on average, 10 to 12 weeks, your time needs to be spent wisely. I will help you with that.
