PMP certificate refers to the qualification certification of project management professionals. It is initiated by the Project Management Institute (PMI), which strictly evaluates whether the knowledge and skills of project managers have high-quality qualification certification exams. Its purpose is to provide a unified
industry standard for project managers. As a project management qualification certification exam, it has established its authority internationally. Since 1984, PMP has trained a large number of project management professionals for the United States, and the project management profession has become the “golden profession
“in the United States. The two-week review work before the PMP test is particularly important for the PMP test. PMP certification is initiated by the American Project Management Association and is promoted all over the world. The content is comprehensive general knowledge of project management.
Many companies will require PMP certification when hiring project managers; when companies choose partners, project bidding will also choose project teams with PMP, so the current gold content of PMP is at a high level.
Today SPOTO tells you how to get the most benefit from the preparation for the exam two weeks before the exam to help us get a high score in the PMP exam.
PMP certification exams are conducted four times a year, in March, June, September and December. I took the exam in September last year.
I personally think that the registration of the PMP certification exam is a little bit troublesome. The English registration is registered on the PMI official website. There is no time limit for this.
Chinese registration is registered on the official website of the Training Center of the State Administration of Foreign Experts Affairs. Chinese registration usually starts two months before the test. The test time is about half a month. The registration fee is USD 606, which is a bit expensive.
The picture below is the general application process.
The official textbook for the PMP certification exam is the PMBOK Guide. In addition, you can actually choose one or two other tutorial textbooks, such as the “PMP Exam Guide”.
This textbook focuses on the detailed and deepening of the content of the PMBOK Guide on the basis of reference and analysis of the past examination questions.
The overall situation of the PMP exam is analyzed to help the exam physiology clear how to apply for the exam, exam review points, exam process, exam experience and skills, precautions and other issues, which can be said to provide the most comprehensive guidance for PMP candidates.

Everyone who learns PMP knows that to pass the PMP exam, you must carefully review the official textbook designated by PMI—”Project Management Knowledge System Guide PMBOK”. This book is also the core textbook of the PMP course. Students must thoroughly understand this book to pass the PMP exam. If you want to pass the PMP exam, you need to truly understand the value displayed in the PMP course. According to the feedback from the students, many candidates describe the PMBOK as a “Book of Heaven” or a “Bible” in the learning process. It is difficult to understand the knowledge in it. In this regard, based on my understanding of the PMBOK exam textbooks in the PMP course over the years, I will give you some suggestions for learning PMBOK.
PMBOK is a general description of the knowledge, skills and tools required for project management by the Project Management Institute (PMI), and it covers a lot of content. Since the knowledge concepts in this book come from the United States, and there will be differences between Chinese and Western ideological cultures, in the PMP course, when learning PMBOK, you must expand your project management thinking and think from an international management perspective. .
The teacher introduced that by learning PMBOK, everyone can learn about various problems and solutions encountered during the implementation of the project. Ten knowledge areas: scope management, time management, quality management, cost management, human resource management, communication management, risk management, procurement management, stakeholder management, integrated management. The second is the five major process groups (processes) involved in the implementation of the project: initiation, planning, execution, monitoring, and closing.
In layman’s terms, it is how the project manager formulates an effective plan based on the actual situation after receiving a project, how to strictly implement the plan after the plan is made, and how to solve a series of problems (the project scope is blurred, the schedule is not in place, and the risk , Cost) how to control better, until the acceptance stage of the project, a way of thinking and work flow that should be done at each step, and all the methods and concepts taught in it have been verified for a long time, no matter what The industry has worked well.
To sum up, the knowledge points in the PMP course are boring to learn, but if you want to successfully pass the PMP exam, it is recommended that the SPOTO PMP training organization prepare for the exam. The harvest at the SPOTO organization is not only to pass the PMP exam, but also to learn the practical skills of project management. It is best for candidates to read PMBOK at least 3 times, mainly to understand how the various knowledge areas are related to each other, and how all the knowledge areas in the PMBOK guide are integrated into the project planning process and project management.
In short, to learn PMBOK, you must have “project-oriented” thinking. Achieve initiation-plan-execution-monitoring-closing, project-based review methods. There are plans to scientifically control the review effect. In addition, it is necessary to participate in group discussion activities, to be resolved in the discussion, and to check the missing knowledge points, which is of great effect for passing the PMP exam. Therefore, when preparing for the exam, you must take seriously the PMP courses arranged by the institution for you, so as to achieve a double harvest of “certification + ability improvement”.
