PMP Prep Lectures, practice Exams & PMs In-Action Videos

How the Course Works:

1. Textbook Reading

You will start by reading the chapter on Project Framework.  After that, you’ll read a chapter for each of the eight process groups. The reading contains a number of different kinds of material. You’ll read a summary of each of the processes within the process group as well as information on the inputs, tools and techniques and outputs. Then you’ll read three scenarios of project managers and teams actually performing the process you are studying. The scenarios cover three levels of project management complexity. The first  scenario shows you the actual documents and forms you would create for a small project done within a department. The second scenario shows you actual documents and information you would use on a larger cross-functional project. The third scenario is the most complex and is about a consulting project done for a multinational corporation. You may ask you instructor questions at any time.

2. Process Group Lectures & PM in Action Videos & Exams

Listen to the lectures on the course website that cover each of the 3 – 6 processes within each process group. The lectures focus on the kind of questions on the PMP exam about each of the project management processes. They also discuss strategies for handling different kinds of questions and the techniques you can use for the exam. Next, view as many Project Manager in Action Videos as you need to understand that process group. There are supplemental lectures on the PM in Action pages in case you need a reminder. Last, below the  lectures for each process group is the link to the 50 question exam. You will get your results and feedback from your instructor within 24 hours.

Individual Process Lectures & PM In Action Videos for each Process

  • Define Scope process, we produce the final project scope statement.

  • In Collect Requirements, we gather the stakeholders’ project requirements and document the traceability of each requirement to the appropriate stakeholder.

 

  • The Communications Management tells the sponsor, project manager, stakeholders and team how and when information will be communicated .

 

  • In estimate costs we use the schedule we’ve just created and the project manager & team estimate the costs for each activity in the project.

 

 

 

  • Determine Budget directly follows Estimate Costs and the project manager creates the time-phased budget for the project, rolling up the cost for each activity. We also create the cost baseline.
    • Create WBS can begin once we have the scope statement and major deliverables identified.  Then we decompose the scope statement into the work breakdown structure.
