PMP 1-2-3: A Guide to Preparing for the PMP® Exam

PMP® Exam Prep based on PMBOK® Guide - Fifth Edition

The Project Management Professional (PMP®) certification has become a highly sought-after indication of professionalism in project management. Preparing for the PMP® examination, however, can be a daunting and time-consuming experience.

In order to meet the needs of busy professionals, Babbage Simmel, one of the nation's leading project management training firms, has created PMP® 1-2-3: A Guide to Preparing for the PMP Exam, which forms the base of this intense, five-day workshop. PMP® 1-2-3 brings together the materials covered on the PMP® exam into one easy to use, step-by-step method for efficient and effective exam preparation.

In the PMP® 1-2-3 workshop, your exam preparation follows a simple three-step process:

  • Learn the necessary concepts and definitions for the exam based on the PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition

  • Includes authoritative sources of project management Exam Prep literature

  • Apply the material in interactive assignments and exercises, geared toward adult learners who learn by application

  • Review and measure your progress using practice exam questions

PMP® 1-2-3 has been developed by Babbage Simmel's PMPs who have trained hundreds of project managers and successfully guided many to PMP® Certification. Each module contains sample questions and the workshop material include a 200-question sample test designed to allow participants to gauge the level of their preparation for the exam.

This workshop is intended to form a solid base for your preparation to successfully take the PMP® exam, and the flow of the course is directed toward that end.

This comprehensive 5-day course will have you exam ready. The course includes the PMBOK® Guide Fifth Edition as well as another PMP Exam Prep Workbook, a comprehensive review of both Reference Guides, along with Tips and homework for Exam Preparation. Students able to focus completely on Exam Prep during the week find themselves well prepared for the Exam.

This course provides the required 35 contact hours of project management education required to sit for the PMP® exam.
