• Are you dreading taking (or re-taking) the PMP exam?
• Do you have difficulty memorizing formulas?
• Would you like to add additional certifications to your resume?

The PMP exam is a valued certification and a requirement for many positions. The exam itself, however, can be challenging. Many people struggle with the exam, despite knowing the material. This session will help you understand the basics of learning the material for the PMP exam, memorization techniques, and ways to improve your chances of passing the exam on the first try. The techniques can be applied to any certification exam, and will help you manage your time, focus your attention and reduce test anxiety.
