I have spent 20 years working in project-based companies and have taken other project management and PMP-prep courses. This class did the best job of showing how all project management elements fit together. Our instructor, Dr. Rainford, was very attentive. The class materials are well done and comprehensive, and I appreciate the testing tips. The website is intuitive and easy to access.
With PMP being my first certification exam, I wanted the interaction and clarification of content that an instructor provides. The CertWise 5-week online course gave me access to an instructor with a deep understanding of PMP concepts and applications and who was able to successfully prepare me for the PMP exam. The course materials saved time, providing an apt summary of the voluminous PMBOK Guide. I also valued the online pre-test, post-test and practice exam. I was committed to passing the PMP exam on my first attempt, and I did!
The content in this course is more in-depth than other materials I’ve used, and my instructor really cared about my success. When I took the PMP exam, I felt very prepared and realized pretty early on that I was going to pass. I felt calm and confident throughout.
I had taken a boot camp course with a different provider and didn’t think I had gotten the information I needed in order to pass the PMP exam. After taking this CertWise course with a longer overview and a work at your own pace approach I was able to fill in the gaps of my knowledge. With a big help from the flash cards, that I printed out and studied, I was able to pass the PMP exam on my first attempt.
I liked (and needed) the accountability of the online classroom that kept pushing me toward the next goal or chapter. I also appreciate the big picture overview approach of the program which helped when trying to learn the process versus memorizing the structure. I have taken a Rita Mulcahy course in an online class format in the past, which provided more of an overview and required a lot of memorization. I prefer this approach much more.
The Learning System for PMP® Exam Preparation is a great choice for PMP candidates because it offers what other programs can’t: a complete, self-contained, instructor-supported program that is backed by a large, reputable company with a great industry track-record.
