Our old PMP Exam Prep Guide...
helped 2,991 people with the PMP Exam Prep, so we're very proud of it!
So, we now have a 2021 PMP Study Guide
You (should) know that preparing for your PMP Exam requires time and focus...
A lot of time and focus
This can be a challenge especially when you are so busy at work that you need to 'steal' time to study. And it gets even harder if you don't know where to start and how to best prepare. So wouldn't it be nice to have someone to guide you through this challenging process?
Someone with a proven, focused, and methodical plan?

And now we've built on our hugely successful program
The PMP Exam Prep Guide rapidly garnered plenty of praise:
"This is a perfect PMP guide and true learning materials. Great job gents."
"This is really great. Having a structured approach is definitely going to help aspirants and this really looks to be a great start."
"Putting Mission and Vision to paper makes such a difference; having concrete steps in black and white is so encouraging and is helping me to regain the focus that I had lost in the past few months. Thanks so much."
...and there are more at the bottom of this page.
But we didn't just make it better...
We have overhauled it and:
- Completely changed the format and structures
- Added loads more information and resources
- Created 5 Bonus sections (nearly 60 modules) with links to supplementary content to help you learn, revise, and understand the Project management ideas
The PMP Study Guide is not a course...
What I mean by this is simple. You cannot use it to learn Project Management. Nor will it teach you everything you need to know to prepare for your PMP exam (although it will cover a very large part of the knowledge you need).
Indeed, OnlinePMCourses is NOT a PMI Authorized Training Partner (ATP).
And neither do we aspire to be.
I do not teach people the 'PMI way' and neither do I agree wholly with every approach PMI advocates.
So, what is this?
This is a Study Guide and a Resource Kit. It offers you guidance on how to prepare for your PMP exam, and provides easy access to all our resources that will help you to understand the Project Management ideas that the PMI examination syllabus requires you to know.
We developed this PMP Study Guide completely afresh, to meet the needs of candidates taking the exam from 2 January 2021.
It replaces our old PMP Exam Prep Guide which served 2,991 users during 5 years of the old exam.
You'll find hints and tips on how best to study... How to plan your campaign and learn the material. And we have some simple tools to help you too.
You'll find easy access to:
- The resources PMI offers publicly
- Our content, curated to fit with the way you want to learn and prepare for your exam. We have done this by:
- Exam Content Outline Tasks and also by
- PMBOK Guide Knowledge Areas
What You've Got for Your Money
There is plenty of content here that we have developed for this guide. But I will be honest with you... Most of the content in the resource kit part is also freely available, either on our website or our YouTube Channel. So, in a real sense, what you are paying for is convenience. We have taken the time to organize that information.
We have set up pages for each area of the PMI's PMP Examination Content Outline - your syllabus. This lists everything you need to know.
And then, on each of those pages, we have:
- Introduced the topic
- Gathered together all our resources (and the best from trusted sites) to help you learn and get a better understanding of that topic
Take a look at everything you will get, in the Course Curriculum below...
(Please note that the PMP Study Guide is currently in pre-release). This means that the content is not all complete yet and it's why we are offering the course at a huge discount. You will keep ownership of the course as it grows and we'll never ask you for an additional cent or penny for the extra content.)
When the course is complete, you will get:
- 13 sections, containing
- 85 principal modules of content, and
- 16 or more bonus modules, making
- over 100 modules of high-quality content
Most PMP candidates will spend from $1,000 to well-over $2,000 on an exam prep campaign that will set you up for a professional career for life
Why wouldn't you spend an extra 1-3% to get access to all of this extra support and these fabulous resources?
