Course Description

I have spent hours and hours putting this course together for you in
hopes that it assists you on your path to becoming a Project Management
Professional or PMP for short.  The PMP certification exam is an
extremely difficult exam that requires preparation - how much
preparation depends on your prior knowledge and test taking skills. 
This course focuses on the latter - test taking skills.  Here I present
you some exams based on the ten knowledge areas of the 5th edition of
the Project Management Body of Knowledge or PMBoK by the Project
Management Institute (also the administrators of the PMP exam).  With
each exam, I introduce the topic to you as well as debriefing every
single question.  Over the ten years I have been instructing PMP
certification courses, I have discovered that many of my students are
very good at taking tests, while others struggle.  And since taking an
exam is required in order to become a project management professional, I
felt that there are a lot of people out there that could benefit from
my advice and the content I have curated over the years.  The exams I
authored and have chosen to use in this course come from a large
collection of exam questions I have written, used, edited, amended,
updated, and discussed in my PMP preparation courses throughout the
years.  I tried to pick out a few of my favorites, a few that I know
that some past students have struggled with, and others simply to round
out a topic.  I avoided the easy questions or the ones relying on strict
memorization of PMI terms and concepts.  Instead, I felt that you would
benefit more from those PMP styled questions that really make you think
or at least present the content in a more contextual setting, story, or
situation.  From time to time, I do throw a generic question meant to
test your knowledge on a term or concept, but for most of the questions I
pulled out ones that requires you to consider some of the concepts a
little deeper and/or see how you might face the concept in a somewhat
realistic scenario.  Obviously, these situations I have to create for
you in only a few sentences, while still giving you enough information
to adequately answer the questions without giving away too much or
having you know non-PMP specific content (e.g. knowledge from a certain
industry or project

Thank you for selecting my course.  You have made a wise decision.  Whether this is your last bit of preparation before heading to your Prometric testing center or your first venture into the PMP world and were curiousity to see how many of the difficult questions you might be able to answer, this is a perfect supplement to your learning and your mission to become PMP certified.  Let's do this!

Section 2: Project Scope Management
05:16

As you prepare to sit for your PMP exam [or for those taking this course to test their existing knowledge to see how much they know about this project management topic based on their experience as project managers] you must consider this knowledge area holistically and how it fits with the other nine knowledge areas.  I give you a few points to remember about the knowledge area, as well as some advice on how to think about and approach this topic and its inputs, outputs, tools and techniques (ITTO).  For each section, I encourage you to start here prior to tackling the exam.

03:14

This lesson is a quick review of the Project Scope Management knowledge area in the fifth (5th) edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge [a.k.a. PMBoK] from the Project Management Institute.  This is not intended to be a full lesson, simply a refresher or high level overview of the inputs, outputs, and processes of the knowledge area.  

The topics covered here are the processes of:

  • plan project scope management
  • collect requirements
  • define scope
  • create work breakdown structure (WBS)
  • validate scope
  • control scope
10 questions

These ten PMP style exam questions will provide you with exceptional practice on the knowledge area of scope management.

11:37

Once you have completed the practice exam, let us debrief each question individually.  You are provided the correct answer during the test taking procedure, but i have purposely withheld the rationale until this video lesson.  The point of this is to make certain you understand why they answers are what they are.  These questions are ones I have written and used in my classrooms over the years.  They are not going to be questions you shall face when sitting for the actual PMP exam - albeit very similar to what you may encounter.  As such, you must not memorize the questions provided and their answers, but the reasoning behind the questions and responses.  Being guided on more ways to dissect and understanding the question, as well as breaking down the choices and backing it up with project management concepts, terms, and PMBOK processes and inputs, tool, techniques, and outputs, is going to better prepare you for the exam than simply taking the exam and moving on.  I want to make certain you are prepared for the exam.  Taking the time to debrief each question is an excellent way to do so.

05:20

By this point, you should have more confidence and practice at taking Project Management Professional styled certification exam questions.  This lesson provides a few more pointers, suggestions, and recommendations on where to take your learning from this point.  Most importantly is encouragement to sit for the true PMP Exam.  In order to sit for the PMP certification exam, you must gain approval from the Project Management Institute or PMI.  That only takes time to pull together your past projects and enter in their details.  Time consuming, but not difficult.   Does not cost anything, but required.  Yet, so many of my past students would get hung up on this one hurdle.  Do not let yourself be hung up here.  You have come this far.  Take things to the next level.  Apply.  Pass.  Become a PMP certified professional.  

Best of luck in your future endeavors and applying your learning from this course to your PMP exam and in your professional project management work.
