PMP Study Material & PMP Exam Prep Book

What is the best way to learn anything? Learn directly from the authority.

That’s why PMTI’s PMP certification training course is the official and authorized content from the Project Management Institute, which sets the PMP exam questions and administers the test. As an official Premier PMI Authorized Training Partner, which can be verified here, PMI has provided us exclusive rights to train using their content for PMP exam prep.

Some companies present themselves as PMI authorized training outfits. Most do not provide any verification.

Other companies replace the nearly 950 page PMBOK® Guide with yet another set of epic training books with no significant additional value or targeting the PMP exam properly.

So, our pmp training material is designed to be comprehensive, targeted, and is feedback-driven. Our instructors, PMBOK® Guide authors, and veteran trainers, prepare our course material incorporating modern learning techniques and latest exam updates to prepare you exceptionally for this challenging exam.

Our pmp training materials are developed by our course authoring team under the leadership of our company's founder, Yad Senapathy, MS, PMP, who is a well known project management expert and a PMBOK Guide lead and contributor to the fifth and the seventh (2021) edition. He writes for Forbes on the project management and PMP industry. Our authors include standards developers, and those with masters and Ph.Ds in project management.

We meet bi-weekly with our students who passed the PMP exam to seek lessons learned about how to make our course the most success-driven course.

So, our course material is designed to be comprehensive, targeted, and is feedback-driven. Our authors prepare our pmp course material incorporating modern learning techniques and the latest exam updates to prepare you exceptionally for this challenging exam.

We consider our course content to be the best among the best. Here is why our course content is superior to others:

1. PMP Certified Instructors

You want to learn in the most efficient and effective manner suitable to your style of learning. You want to learn with the most authoritative pmp course material. You want instructors who are trained to provide the most impactful preparation.

PMTI meets all these requirements at the highest level. Our instructors are trained and certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI) to best use their authorized content. To deliver a customized training personalized to you, our instructors hold multiple certifications from PMI and other institutions, such as Project Management Professional (PMP), Program Management Professional (PgMP), Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP), PMI’s Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP), PMI Scheduling Management (PMI-SP), Ph.D., CSSMBB, CSM, PMI-ACP, Certified Disciplined Agile Coach, and more.

Everyone has their own learning pace. That’s why every instructor in 4PMTI is trained to recognize your strengths and weaknesses and will adapt the PMP training modules to suit your individual needs. To ensure you learn from proven and experienced facilitators, we hire only those who trained at least 1000 or more PMP aspirants, have great reviews, and have passed our train-the-trainer exam with high scores.

2. Official PMI Authorized PMP Exam Content

PMP Exam Strategy

While knowledge and application is important in the exam, some students struggle with taking standardized tests. Most have not taken one in several decades. You need an easy-to-understand simple set of instructions to apply and tackle the exam favorably.

Some companies provide a100-page strategy PMP book that is hard to follow and difficult to remember or apply. They throw a 20-page memorization sheet which is irrelevant for the current exam. Most of their instructors do not even understand the strategies themselves.

The PMTI Blue Book features a special PMP strategy section on techniques that have helped our students pass the PMP exam. The students review the strategy section daily in the class and apply it when taking the mock exams. Our instructors review the questions in a learning mode using our strategies. Most students study our strategy twice before taking the official PMP exam. You will know how to address breaks in the exam, using highlighting and strike-through, as well as prioritizing questions. Special tips and tricks are provided for taking the exam at home.

PMP Exam Prep In-Class and After-Class (2000) Questions

You need targeted situational questions similar to those in the PMP exam to successfully complete it. You must have a large enough database to test yourself on each one of the 35 tasks PMI tests you in the exam. You also need questions that are either the same or higher level of difficulty. The questions must be distributed to represent the break-down in the exam and the relative importance of topics.

PMTI developed an extensive database of approximately 2000 situational questions (and growing) to address the above aspects of the exam content. The questions cover the three major domains - People, Process, and Business Environment in the same distribution as the exam.

Students get to solve the questions as follows:

  1. Day 1 Midday (Mastery Builder) Exam
  2. Day 1 Evening (Mastery Builder) Exam
  3. Day 2 Midday (Mastery Builder) Exam
  4. Day 2 Evening (Mastery Builder) Exam
  5. Day 3 Midday (Mastery Builder) Exam
  6. Day 3 Evening (Mastery Builder) Exam
  7. Day 4 Midday (Mastery Builder) Exam
  8. Day 4 Evening (Mastery Builder) Exam
  9. Full-length (180 questions) PMP Simulated Exam 1
  10. Full-length (180 questions) PMP Simulated Exam 2
  11. Full-length (180 questions) PMP Simulated Exam 3
  12. Full-length (180 questions) PMP Simulated Exam 4
  13. Additional 700 questions organized into various tests
  14. Take randomized questions by - domain, task, and a full simulation

The questions you tackle in PMTI PMP boot camp in preparation for the PMP exam represent the real questions in terms of difficulty, completeness, length, and the type of questions. Each question in our database is organized by the domain and task relevant to the exam and backed by a detailed rationale that relates back to your learning. Using our enhanced question bank, you will get hands-on practice of single choice, multiple choice, hotspot, and matching type of questions to fully mimic the official PMP exam. We provide both learning mode and exam mode with timers for the simulation tests.

Other providers focus on providing thousands of outdated, long, easy, unfocused questions and do not cover the exam’s content. Such question banks will not only waste your time but will mislead you.

As you complete these mock PMP exams, the instructors do an in-depth analysis of the questions missed, so you are confident and better prepared.

Our robust analytics provides recommendations for the students to focus on specific areas. After each simulated exam you will receive a visual summary report of your performance by domains and tasks. You will also be able to analyze your progress over time. Detailed reports allow you to dig in further into your performance and identify specific areas of strength and weakness. You will receive customized suggestions on what to do to reinforce in a certain area and how to improve in that area.

5. PMP Certification Exam Success Kit

pmp course books

PMP certification exam diagnostic test

Measure your readiness to take the PMP certification exam & let our instructors personalize your training to your needs by taking our 180-question PMP certification diagnostic test. We suggest you do this test once before the class to gain an understanding of the PMP exam and learn about your areas of strengths and weaknesses. Once you determine the questions you missed, you can go back to the online books we provide and the videos to fill gaps or correct knowledge inconsistencies.

PMP certification success road map

The PMP certification process can be overwhelming. But don’t worry because we’ve provided you with the PMP certification success road map, which will assist with time management, training plan, and ensuring you’re on the right path to pass the PMP exam on your first try.

It breaks the entire process down into steps giving you the aids necessary to complete each of the steps quickly.

PMP certification application prep tool

To ensure that your application process is accurate & complete, we will also provide you with a PMP certification application prep tool to simplify your application process. The Excel-based tool describes the PMP exam requirements in understandable language and provides a simple way to document non-overlapping project management experience. You will also need to describe your deliverables in 200 words or less. This tool provides several examples and an easy template to create your project descriptions quickly.

PMP memorization math & process sheet

Be extra prepared for your PMP certification exam with our simple one-page memorization document that has been developed and refined by our PMP certified professional trainers specifically for the new exam. A custom-designed big poster of the PMP process flow diagram helps organize your thoughts about what happens next, what the project manager should do, and what the PM is using within a specific process. There is a 3-hour video to describe this entire process flow. We recommend an initial review before the class and another one a day before their exam. No wonder our students nail the “what do you do next?” or “What does the project manager do?” questions.

Most companies provide memorization sheets with irrelevant Math formulas such as critical path method and standard deviation. We focus on keeping our memorization sheets current with the exam specification.

Project Management Training Institute is the ONLY training company that offers you this benefit as a complementary offering.

Moving forward with us means you get an additional three years of PMP certification — 6 years in total without paying up additional fee for the “Premium”. This unique benefit is part of our commitment to giving you the best value for money and helping you move up to the top of the corporate world and become ultra-successful.
