PMP Certification refers to the qualification certification of project management professionals (personnel). The Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exam organized by the Project Management Institute (PMI) has been promoted in more than 190 countries and regions around the world, and it is currently the most valuable certification in the field of project management. Obtaining a PMP certificate not only improves the project management level of the project manager, but also directly reflects the personal competitiveness of the project manager. It is a symbol of the status of a project management professional.PMP certification has been promoted in China since 1999, and the international proctoring agency Prometric conducts invigilation and examination organization. As a project management qualification certification exam, PMP has established its authority internationally.First, i wouuld like to briefly introduce the basic situation as follows, and then share with you the harvest and experience of PMP learning and examination from five aspects: 1. Why do you want to take the PMP 2. How to make a study plan 3. Sharing of learning methods 4. Sharing of exam experience.Now,let’s begin.
- Why Take the PMP Test.
When sorting out and adjusting career plans for the next few years, I found that systematically learning project management helps cultivate overall thinking and enhance cross-departmental collaboration capabilities, regardless of the professional direction and management direction development are beneficial.Although there have been some roles of Project Owner in the working experience, there is no title of Project Manager. This means that in my career experience, projects are a normal and important role, but individuals lack a systematic study of project management, and rely more on personal exploration and experience accumulation, and there is no high-quality methodological precipitation. That is to say, there is reality, but the lack of theory and practice is not conducive to the development of individual knowledge trees. By checking the recruitment requirements of some favorite positions, the PMP certificate was elected with high votes, so I chose to take the PMP exam.
Note: PMP Certification refers to the qualification certification of project management professionals. It was initiated by the Project Management Institute (PMI). In addition to PMP, PMI initiated CAPM (Assistant Project Management). In addition, PMI China and the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs also launched ACP (AGILE Agile Certification), and PGMP (Program Management Certification), PBA (Business Analyst).
First of all, you should confirm the appropriate test time (based on factors such as learning speed, work schedule, etc.Second, check the course schedule of the training institution (combine the course content and textbook content to confirm the key time points for the next learning plan)Then, formulate a personal learning plan (based on the objective time node, achieve the goal of completing the corresponding content self-study before each class, and pay attention to arranging a flexible time of 3-5 days)
Sharing of Learning Methods
Self-study before class and be aware of it. You must finish your self-study before class and correspond to the PMBOK chapter, so that you can keep up with the teacher’s rhythm during class.
If you have enough time, self-study before class can try to sort out the mind map of the corresponding content, and then correspond to the mind map explained by the teacher in class, and test your own methods and content of self-study in order to update and adjust the way of self-study.2. Listen carefully to the class and keep up with the teacher’s rhythm. The purpose of the class is to follow the teacher to sort out and consolidate the PMP knowledge system, which is quite critical.3. Review after class, compare self-study and lecture Sort out the mind map on the day or the next day after class for review and follow-up sprints. At the same time, you can also test the results of self-study. When reviewing the sprint class, I will go through all the chapters again. At this time, the mind map will help to have an overall understanding and memory of the process group and the field of knowledge, as well as highlight the important and difficult points.
4.Experience Sharing about The PMP Certification Exam
It consists of 200 multiple-choice questions, of which 25 questions are not scored. The content of the exam includes the ten knowledge areas of project management and five project process groups. The final score shows the problem of the five process groups, and the exam as a whole can be passed. However, since our candidates do not know what the 25 unscored questions are, and they are produced by the combination of the process group and the knowledge domain, each question must be done well, and each process combination knowledge domain must be mastered, so there is no chance of luck.The PMP questions are quite practical and will not be purely conceptual. They must be based on the situation.
If the examinee can identify the concept of the question, which process group and knowledge area is the best, if it is difficult to quickly identify it, they can choose based on the overall thinking of the PMP certification.
What is the overall thinking of the PMP certification?
On the one hand, there is no absolute best solution, there is only a relatively superior solution, so there is no need to pick the best solution based on what you have learned; on the other hand, the PMP’s questioning party is PMI, and the questioning idea must be Western The usual strong logic and rationality. When reviewing the entire PMBOK, you will find that the logical structure is very clear.
The examination is only the first step in the construction of the theory. Only by applying what you have learned can you achieve success in your studies. I wish you all success in your studies.
