Knowledge Areas, Process Groups, and Processes-Oh, My!

This table maps the 47 project management processes to their corresponding Knowledge Area, as well as to their corresponding Process Group.

PMP Exam Tip: Read and understand your books

But due to the fact that much of the exam is based on this book, it is important that you actually read and understand all that it contains.

Help! I’ve Failed The PMP® Audit!

But there’s another part to this trend: we are seeing more people failing audits and reaching out for help. If that’s you, don’t worry: I’ve got you covered with this article. And if you are in the middle of your…
