Continuing in the tradition of its bestselling predecessors, PMP® Exam Practice Test and Study Guide, Tenth Edition uses self study to help readers increase their chances of passing the PMP® certification exam the first time around. This tenth edition is up to date with the 2015 Examination Content Outline (ECO) published by the Project Management Institute (PMI®), which is the blueprint for the exam.
In addition to 600 practice test questions, this edition includes a new chapter on the five process domains. It supplies an overview of each knowledge area, a list of exam topics, and 40 multiple-choice questions for each of the ten knowledge areas presented in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge Fifth Edition (PMBOK®Guide).
As in previous editions, this edition provides a clearly written rationale for each correct answer, along with a supporting reference list. To help broaden your understanding of the concepts in the answer, this edition features an expanded rationale that discusses why a particular answer is correct, some study tips to consider, and in many cases, an explanation as to why the other answers are incorrect.
For each answer, the authors supply references to the appropriate pages in the PMBOK® Guide and the specific ECO domain and task. You will also find references to one or more of the five process groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and Controlling, or Closing at the end of each rationale.
The book features a 200-question online practice test that simulates the actual PMP® exam. It also includes the authors’ proprietary proficiency rating that will help you assess your strengths and weaknesses in each process domain so you can identify the areas where you require further study.
