What to think about

The first section of each chapter covers 3-5 conceptual questions about this week's topic. They challenge you to "go deep" and think about what the topic means to you personally.

Study assignments

Keep focused on the relevant project management topics with specially-selected study assignments. You’ll learn with various accessible resources in different formats, including PM PrepCast video lessons, quizzes, and full-length exams in the PM Exam Simulator, listening to podcasts, creating flashcards, reading from the PMBOK® Guide, Agile Practice Guide, and other sources.

"Go Beyond" assignments

"Go Beyond" assignments are optional tasks that take you beyond "just" studying project management topics. These assignments are supplemental to the core content. They are specially selected to help you gain greater insight, broaden your knowledge of the content, and ultimately improve your chances for exam success.

Our study approach is informed by evidence-based teaching practices, proven techniques, and lessons learned from successful test-takers. We emphasize active learning to help you retain and apply knowledge, including activities like reflection exercises, quizzes, self-assessment, spaced practice, and more.

The PM StudyCoach Guidebook has been written for PMP exam candidates who want to prepare for the exam with about 12 weeks of study. But note that it is not a “course in a book” that will prepare you for the exam on its own. Instead, it must be used in combination with a self-study PMP exam prep course and simulator (sold separately). The idea is that the guidebook will tell you exactly which lessons to watch and which exams to take, and when.

It works best used in combination with The PM PrepCast Elite, which includes the PrepCast training course and simulator. It may also be helpful if you already own any other PMP exam prep course and exam simulator that closely follow the official PMP exam content outline from PMI. If you do not own a self-study course and simulator, then this guidebook is not for you.
