Killexams : PMP test Prep Resources To Help You Get Certified

Editorial Note: We earn a commission from partner links on Forbes Advisor. Commissions do not affect our editors' opinions or evaluations.

Preparing for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® test can be daunting. With a wealth of PMP prep resources available across the internet, you might feel overwhelmed, uncertain or confused about which resources are the best.

Creating an effective personal study plan with goals and deadlines and using the best test prep resources will help to ensure your PMP certification success.

In this article, we share some strategies and PMP test prep resources to help you prepare to take the test. Options vary from short practice exams to PMP prep courses. Let’s dig in.

Prepping for Your PMP Exam

With the PMP test costing up to $555 per attempt, intentional preparation is critical for saving money, time and energy. The Project Management Institute (PMI) administers the PMP exam. PMI states that successful test-takers spend 35 hours or more on test prep.

The following considerations can help you pass the PMP exam on the first try.

Obtain Minimum Contact Hours

PMP candidates must complete at least 35 contact hours of formal project management education before they can take the certification exam.

You can build these contact hours through the following avenues:

  • PMI-authorized training partners
  • Employer/company-sponsored programs
  • Training companies or consultants (e.g., training schools)
  • Distance-learning companies, including an end-of-course assessment
  • University/college academic and continuing education programs

Create a Reasonable Test Timeline

Once you complete your contact hours, it’s time to set a test-taking timeline.

The American Psychological Association suggests stretching your study time over a more extended period to help you better retain information. For example, if you aim to complete 35 total hours of studying, it is better to study for three to four hours per week for nine to 11 weeks rather than 12 hours per week over three weeks.

Last-minute cram sessions can be helpful for short-term information retention, but spacing out your study sessions results in better recollection.

After you determine how long your preparation should take, schedule out study time and practice exams leading up to test day.

Take Practice Exams

Practice exams are a great way to track your progress and test how well you recall the test material. You don’t need to take the full 200-question test every time. Shorter, more focused tests can help you identify improvement areas and strengthen your knowledge of specific subjects.

Toward the end of your preparation period, make sure you are ready for test day by taking the paid, PMI-authorized practice exam. This practice questions follows the same format as the PMP certification exam, giving you a true feel for the official test’s design, questions and time frame.

PMP test Prep Resources

The following resources, excluding PMI’s official Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide (PMBOK® Guide), are completely free and can be used for self-study and reference purposes.

MTTC tests are meant to ensure that each certified teacher has the necessary skills and subject area knowledge to serve in Michigan's schools. These tests are designed and implemented by the Michigan Department of Education.

Save all official MTTC score reports in a safe place because you may need them for employment or teacher certification in other states. If you need new score reports, additional copies may be ordered using these instructions.

In order to be certified, students must pass the MTTC subject area tests that correspond to the major and minor field(s) of study. These tests should not be taken until the final year of the program, but it is highly recommended that students pass their MTTC subject area test(s) before student teaching.

  • Find out which subject tests you need to take.
  • Subject area test scores are valid for five years from the date of testing (students need to be recommended for certification within those five years).
  • Register at the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification website
  • The fee for each subject test is $129.
  • During the registration process, be sure to identify yourself as a Calvin student and also request that your scores be sent to Calvin.
  • Be careful to enter an accurate social security number. It is a huge inconvenience if you enter an incorrect number. Canadians, please register using your U.S. social security number, not your Canadian social insurance number.
  • When asked if you are completing an “alternative route” to teacher certification, answer “No” (Calvin’s program is a traditional route).
  • Candidates with diagnosed disabilities may register for alternative testing arrangements.
  • Candidates who do not speak English as a primary language may request additional time for any MTTC test except world language subject tests.
  • Be sure to review the appropriate study guides. Depending on your subject area, you may find helpful practice problems at education.com or 240Tutoring. Curriculum Collection middle or high school textbooks may be used to review content.
  • Tests are no longer offered on campus. All MTTC tests are now computer-based only. Exam Center locations are available in cities worldwide. 

Elementary Education Students

Students seeking elementary certification must also take the Elementary Education MTTC test #103. Do not take the new Lower or Upper Elementary tests 117-124. When registering for the Elementary Education test, report elementary education as a "major." Take the time to review the online study guide and test objectives. Spend extra time studying for these subareas, which have lower pass rates:

  • Social Studies
  • Visual and Performing Arts
  • Health and Physical Education

Special Education Program Students

Killexams : KD College Prep Announces Test Prep Classes and Counseling for the New SAT(R) Test

KD College Prep, a test prep and college counseling company based in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, finalizes instructional changes to prepare students for the migration of College Board's PSAT/NMSQT(R) and SAT(R) tests to a new digital format next year.

Coppell, Texas--(Newsfile Corp. - January 24, 2023) - KD College Prep, a test prep and college counseling company based in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, finalizes instructional changes to prepare students for the migration of College Board's PSAT/NMSQT® and SAT® tests to a new digital format next year.

Early in 2022, College Board (the organization that administers the PSAT/NMSQT and the SAT tests) announced that it would offer the tests digitally in the U.S. starting in 2023 and 2024. In addition to format changes, adjustments in test content could pose significant challenges for students.

Scoring on both the PSAT/NMSQT and the SAT® tests will remain the same, although College Board will reduce the length of the SAT test by approximately an hour.

The new digital format will also be adaptive, meaning it will vary from student to student. After a student has finished the first module, one of two potential second-stage modules will appear based on the number of questions the student answers correctly initially. Generally, one module has questions that are more difficult than the other.

The new SAT® test format will still feature a verbal and a math section. The verbal section (made up of practicing and writing questions) will have shorter practicing passages with a single question after each. With less questions, students will rely more on test-taking strategies to find the correct answer on time. The test will group together questions that test similar skills and knowledge, arranged from easiest to hardest.

The math section allows students to use a built-in calculator on the entire section, which is a significant change. Students will find the same math concepts-Algebra 1 and 2, geometry, and trigonometry. "Free response" questions will show up throughout the section, instead of only at the end.

"College Board's exact announcement about making the SAT digital brings back many familiar memories. Over the last 30 years, KD College Prep has seen many adjustments, reconstructions, and makeovers by College Board. With each change we have adapted and found new and improved ways to prepare our students for college," says David Dillard, CEO of KD College Prep.

Since 1992, KD College Prep has helped students prepare for college admissions tests through in-person or live-online prep courses and activities. The organization has four campuses in the DFW area and currently serves students in 37 states across the U.S.

Killexams : Wharton Online and Wall Street Prep Announce Collaboration, Launch Joint Private Equity Certificate Program Wharton Online and Wall Street Prep Announce Collaboration, Launch Joint Private Equity Certificate Program

PR Newswire

BOSTON, Feb. 15, 2023

Unique collaboration will focus on early and mid-career finance professionals

BOSTON, Feb. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Wall Street Prep, the world's leading financial training company, and Wharton Online announced today a collaboration to create finance-specific certificate programs for early- to midcareer professionals, beginning with the launch of the Private Equity Certificate Program. 

"Our finance-specific certificate programs offer a flexible learning pathway for early and mid-career professionals," said David Musto, Faculty Director of the Stevens Center for Innovation in Finance at the Wharton School. "Through these programs, learners have the opportunity to build their knowledge, skills, and resume alongside existing careers."

The Certificate Program combines the practical skill-building approach Wall Street Prep uses inside four of the top five largest private equity firms with Wharton's commitment to making the highest quality education available worldwide.

"As the $4.7 trillion private equity industry has grown, the bar for sophisticated investment analysis, due diligence, deal structure, and portfolio management has steadily gone up," said Burcu Esmer, Ph.D., Academic Director at Wharton-AltFinance Institute. "We see a growing demand for qualified talent directly and indirectly involved in the investment process. Our program caters to learning and development goals at investment firms and institutions of all sizes, including related support or professional services teams." 

Currently enrolling for the May 2023 cohort, the Private Equity Certificate Program is an 8-week, intensive, online course that covers the foundational concepts and practical techniques deployed in investment analysis and deal execution. Course content draws from case studies and investment approaches shared directly by prestigious faculty and the industry's leading practitioners.

Each cohort learns from self-paced video modules with live instruction from senior Wharton and Wall Street Prep faculty during weekly office hours. Additionally, the guest speaker series features senior private equity executives sharing current market trends and best practices. Upon completion of the program, learners receive a shareable digital certificate from Wharton Online and Wall Street Prep.

The program helps to fill a growing need for skill building. According to McKinsey, 89 percent of financial services organizations are currently or expecting to experience skill gaps within the next five years.

"We're excited to address industry skill gaps by expanding global access to our private equity training. Until now, we've only offered that elite training inside the top mega and middle-market PE funds," said Scott Roman, Program Director of Wall Street Prep. "Combined with Wharton's thought leadership and seasoned faculty, the program will provide professionals with desk-ready skills to help them make an immediate impact in the market."

The Private Equity Certificate Program is the first in a series of specialized, career-specific online finance certificate programs co-designed and taught by Wharton and Wall Street Prep.

"The value of the career-focused certificates is in taking employee training and workforce skills to the next level, all without requiring a career break," said Matan Feldman, Founder and CEO of Wall Street Prep. "Our courses provide businesses and individual learners the flexibility to customize the learning journey and acquire skill sets aligned with their goals. By joining forces with Wharton, we look forward to creating tangible outcomes and developing the next generation of elite finance leaders."
