Project Management Institute published the fifth edition of the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) in 2013. With over half a million certified PMP®s, it is no wonder it is the most sought after certification in the project management industry.
"If I just read this book 'n' times, will I pass the exam?"
"I have spent considerable amount of time going through the glossary definitions. Am I prepared for the exam?"
"Why are these questions not straight (forward)?"
"This question appears to be out-of-syllabus!"
"None of the answer options match the definitions that I read from the book!"
"Will I get direct questions in the exam?"
These are some of the questions candidates preparing to write PMI exams, such as the PMP* or PMI-ACP have. I am sure you would too if you were planning on taking up these certification exams. I get asked about this all the time.
