Why and How to Earn Your PMP® Credential

By Mike Griffiths, PMP®, PMI-ACP®


The PMP exam is not easy, but thousands of project managers like you successfully pass it every year. Treat your studies like a project and clearly understand the scope of the exam first. Then, gather the resources you will need and execute a structured study plan. There are many ways to test your understanding and gain feedback as you go, so the final exam should be no surprise.
