The Ultimate PMP® Study Plan

It is clear that a study plan both allows you to see how you should spend your time and ensures that you are setting aside time to earn enough PDUs before the deadline. Since PMP® study plan could be created through a person’s experience and one’s ability plus the amount of time he/she could spend in studying varies from people to people, you cannot devise your study plan based on other’s personal experience without customizing it as your requirements. This article will provide a 3 phase-time study plane as well as each phase’s objectives and activities.

• Also, read and understand Agile Practice Guide which integrate Agile and project management, you may not need to dig too deep into this book, however, a basic understanding is more than enough.

Phase 2: Master

The objective of this phase is to study each knowledge area in the PMBOK Guide carefully. 

• Go through each chapter/online lesson carefully with more focus. Try re-read if something seems to be vague.
• Read other preparatory book, or ideally, try to solve the problems and quizzes in those books.
