This course is a comprehensive review of each of the ten Knowledge Areas addressed in the PMBOK Version 5, as relative to the five Process Groups and as applicable to the 47 PMBOK Processes. Instructor-led lecture will present the subject matter as documented in the PMBOK Version 5 and as tested by PMI in the PMP Exam. The instructor will facilitate in-class practice exams, as well as guide students in the use of the Velociteach InSite practice testing facility. The exam passing rate for students attending PMI Westchester Chapter PMP Prep courses is excellent (96%), and we are proud of the hard work and success of our students. It will be possible to earn 35 education credits with the completion of all class requirements (credits toward the 35 training hours required for the PMP Certification).

For this fee the student will be provided with the Andy Crowe textbook "The PMP Exam: How to Pass on Your First Try" (a $99 value), the associated course workbook, a 6-page Quick Reference Guide ($19 value), study flash cards ($29 value), “Conversations on the PMP Exam" - a 5-disc CD set ($49 value) - as well as a 6-month subscription to the Velociteach InSite Practice Test facility ($89 value)..
