I haven't heard of this! My favorite program is through the REP "The Mathis Group" as their bootcamp comes with a guarantee that if you don't pass the exam, they will coach you and pay for the next attempt. They offer a greatly discounted rate to Universities and if you have enough people, will travel to your location to offer it. 

Of course...even with the discount - it does cost more than $99.  I would be interested in thoughts on the content of this course if anyone purchases it!

Hello,

 

I used PMTI: http://www.4pmti.com/4daypmpbootcamp.aspx. I attended their bootcamp course which was four days, including a practice exam and review. 

 

When selecting a company and bootcamp course, make sure that they guarantee passing the exam, PMTI allows you to retake the exam two additional times if you do not pass on your first try and they pay for all 3 exams.  I found the course to be very informative, you receive what they call the Blue Book study guide, I would relate it to a CliffsNotes version of the PMBOK, very helpful!  PMTI has online materials and recorded topics to allow you additional review outside of the classroom and every couple of weeks they hold an online training webinar for additional review to allow to ask questions and focus on strengthening your areas of weakness.

 

Tip: make sure to study prior to taking any bootcamp course and allow study time after the course before sitting for the exam.  There is too much content to digest to expect to pass the exam by attending the bootcamp course only.  The exam is challenging, it is very detailed and the questions are all situational.

 

Practice exams were very helpful:

I highly recommend Project Management Academy. We’ve had two groups go through the course at our location. Three and a half days in class, practice exam, and review of the exam afterward. We had an excellent instructor, and access to excellent materials (including practice tests and short videos to review each topic) to prepare for the exam after completing the course.

I highly recommend a boot camp type of training where you sit for 4 days of preparation, take a practice 4 hour exam on day 5 and then take the real exam on day 6. I went through PM Study which is a really reputable training company and the practice questions we reviewed all week were very similar to those on the real exam. I don't think I would have been so prepared for the test using an online or self-paced prep course. One piece of advice given to me before I selected the prep class was to take a practice exam "cold turkey" so I can assess my strengths and weaknesses. This was an eye opener that made me realize my 15 years of PM experience wasn't preparation enough for this exam. Good luck!

In 2007, I attended a semester long executive course in Project Management offered by a local university (FAU).  It was a collaboration with Key Performance (a local company in FL, It was way more than $99).   I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot about PM! it was comprehensive, we worked with real life cases and we had to create our own project thru the semester to present at the end. Then we took couple days to go over the PMP certification test (just learning to the test, kind of bootcamp).  They gave us access to their question bank and I used it a lot to study for the test.  Learning the theory was great but we also learned a great deal from the cases in class and the exchange that happens when you have different people working together.   I am not sure if other universities offer something similar, but just a thought.

Hi all,

I can’t vouch for the quality, but I figured I’d share a PMP Certification course promotion that a colleague just forwarded me:

 

IT University Online - Online Deal

$99 for a Project Management Certification Bundle from IT University Online ($795 Value)

 

http://www.groupon.com/deals/it-university-online-76

 

It expires in 9 hours.

 

I’m seriously considering buying it, but if anyone has an opinion, I’d love to hear it!

 

Best,

 

Murkin

I recommend you look to your local PMI chapter to see if they offer exam prep courses. I took the PMI-NJ course, which uses Andy Crowe's materials. You could also self-study using Crowe's book "The PMP Exam: How to Pass on your First Try" and associated online materials, along with a copy of the PMBOK 5. I also highly recommend that as part of your study you take several practice exams.

Good luck!

I highly recommend a boot camp type of training where you sit for 4 days of preparation, take a practice 4 hour exam on day 5 and then take the real exam on day 6. I went through PM Study which is a really reputable training company and the practice questions we reviewed all week were very similar to those on the real exam. I don't think I would have been so prepared for the test using an online or self-paced prep course. One piece of advice given to me before I selected the prep class was to take a practice exam "cold turkey" so I can assess my strengths and weaknesses. This was an eye opener that made me realize my 15 years of PM experience wasn't preparation enough for this exam. Good luck!

I highly recommend Project Management Academy. We’ve had two groups go through the course at our location. Three and a half days in class, practice exam, and review of the exam afterward. We had an excellent instructor, and access to excellent materials (including practice tests and short videos to review each topic) to prepare for the exam after completing the course.

I recommend you look to your local PMI chapter to see if they offer exam prep courses. I took the PMI-NJ course, which uses Andy Crowe's materials. You could also self-study using Crowe's book "The PMP Exam: How to Pass on your First Try" and associated online materials, along with a copy of the PMBOK 5. I also highly recommend that as part of your study you take several practice exams.

 

Good luck!

Hello,

 

I used PMTI: http://www.4pmti.com/4daypmpbootcamp.aspx. I attended their bootcamp course which was four days, including a practice exam and review. 

 

When selecting a company and bootcamp course, make sure that they guarantee passing the exam, PMTI allows you to retake the exam two additional times if you do not pass on your first try and they pay for all 3 exams.  I found the course to be very informative, you receive what they call the Blue Book study guide, I would relate it to a CliffsNotes version of the PMBOK, very helpful!  PMTI has online materials and recorded topics to allow you additional review outside of the classroom and every couple of weeks they hold an online training webinar for additional review to allow to ask questions and focus on strengthening your areas of weakness.

 

Tip: make sure to study prior to taking any bootcamp course and allow study time after the course before sitting for the exam.  There is too much content to digest to expect to pass the exam by attending the bootcamp course only.  The exam is challenging, it is very detailed and the questions are all situational.

 

Practice exams were very helpful:

My comment on local chapter training is that it is highly variable, in my personal experience. There are some that put together good materials and have good trainers, and some that don't. Even within the same chapter it's highly variable. I took a couple sessions with our local chapter and got very frustrated with the quality of the training. 

You should ask others that have taken local chapter training about their experience and make sure you're going to get a quality training experience. But by all means look into it as one of your options.

The advantage to using someone like RMC is that they have standardized their materials and their delivery and you get a very consistent training experience. They typically also include many practice tests (part and whole) as part of the package, you don't need to try to find them on your own. As mentioned by others, some even include a guarantee that you'll pass the exam or they will pay for the re-take.

In 2007, I attended a semester long executive course in Project Management offered by a local university (FAU).  It was a collaboration with Key Performance (a local company in FL, It was way more than $99).   I really enjoyed the class and learned a lot about PM! it was comprehensive, we worked with real life cases and we had to create our own project thru the semester to present at the end. Then we took couple days to go over the PMP certification test (just learning to the test, kind of bootcamp).  They gave us access to their question bank and I used it a lot to study for the test.  Learning the theory was great but we also learned a great deal from the cases in class and the exchange that happens when you have different people working together.   I am not sure if other universities offer something similar, but just a thought.

Hello,

 

I used PMTI: http://www.4pmti.com/4daypmpbootcamp.aspx. I attended their bootcamp course which was four days, including a practice exam and review. 

 

When selecting a company and bootcamp course, make sure that they guarantee passing the exam, PMTI allows you to retake the exam two additional times if you do not pass on your first try and they pay for all 3 exams.  I found the course to be very informative, you receive what they call the Blue Book study guide, I would relate it to a CliffsNotes version of the PMBOK, very helpful!  PMTI has online materials and recorded topics to allow you additional review outside of the classroom and every couple of weeks they hold an online training webinar for additional review to allow to ask questions and focus on strengthening your areas of weakness.

 

Tip: make sure to study prior to taking any bootcamp course and allow study time after the course before sitting for the exam.  There is too much content to digest to expect to pass the exam by attending the bootcamp course only.  The exam is challenging, it is very detailed and the questions are all situational.

 

Practice exams were very helpful:

I highly recommend Project Management Academy. We’ve had two groups go through the course at our location. Three and a half days in class, practice exam, and review of the exam afterward. We had an excellent instructor, and access to excellent materials (including practice tests and short videos to review each topic) to prepare for the exam after completing the course.

I highly recommend a boot camp type of training where you sit for 4 days of preparation, take a practice 4 hour exam on day 5 and then take the real exam on day 6. I went through PM Study which is a really reputable training company and the practice questions we reviewed all week were very similar to those on the real exam. I don't think I would have been so prepared for the test using an online or self-paced prep course. One piece of advice given to me before I selected the prep class was to take a practice exam "cold turkey" so I can assess my strengths and weaknesses. This was an eye opener that made me realize my 15 years of PM experience wasn't preparation enough for this exam. Good luck!
