After I published this course others have tried to imitate it. This is the original course with extremely valuable scenario based questions which are used in the PMP ® exam.
Lesson 1: Communication Channels
Lesson 2: Cost and Schedule Estimating
Lesson 3: Expected Value
Lesson 5: Critical Path
Lesson 5: Earned Value Management
Lesson 6: Reading an S Curve
Lesson 9: EVM Variance at Completion (ETC, ETC and VAC)
Lesson 10: Forecasting Final project Costs
***BONUS*** The best 50 question EVM practice quiz. From very easy to very difficult questions and the ability to learn from each answer.

For a course introduction take a look at the promo video. This is Lesson 1 which explains how to calculate the number of communication channels based on the number of stakeholders in a project
Sample questions for calculating the number of communication channels in a project.
Lesson 2 explains the two techniques used in PMBOK® for cost and duration estimating. They are the triangular technique and the PERT analysis technique.
This lesson explains the calculations to arrive at the expected value or expected monetary value when given a set or probabilities and outcomes.
Sample questions for calculating the expected value (or expected monetary value) for a project.
Understanding the critical path is essential for all project managers. This lesson provides an easy to understand explanation of critical path and slack using AON diagrams.
Sample questions for calculating critical path metrics for a project.
Earned value is one of the most confusing concepts in project management. This lesson deals with the basic equations of cost variance, schedule variance and estimate at completion. The sample questions provide the data and the student needs to find the correct equation, insert the correct values and calculate the result. This is great practice for PMP exam questions.
Sample questions for calculating earned value metrics for a project.
Lesson 6 explains another aspect of the earned value concept which is how to read and understand an S-curve
Sample questions for reading and interpreting the results of an S-curve for a project.
This lesson describes a good way to prepare yourself to be successful in writing the PMP exam.
Please note that there are some difficult questions in the Quiz. This is to make sure that you are well prepared when you write the PMP® exam.
Here are some additional practice questions in preparation for the math portion of the PMP exam
