Complete List of all 49 PMP Project Management Processes

By July 20, 2022No Comments

When it comes to project management, there is a high level of standards to live up to, which is why certification from the Project Management Institute (PMI) for the PMP Exam (Project Management Professional) is such a widely regarded certification. The PMP lets employers know that the project manager with this distinction is a senior, highly knowledgeable, and experienced project manager that can understand and tackle even complex and large projects.

The PMP ensures that a project manager can utilize the many PMP processes that are designed to ensure projects run smoothly, within budget, and on time. On top of this, it ensures the project will be finished to a high standard and that the Project Manager has the necessary knowledge to oversee a project from start to finish with the ability to react to any issues that arise without allowing them to harm the project as a whole.

The 49 PMP Processes that the PMI outlines are important aspects that a great Project Manager will be able to utilize.

Certification for the PMP requires a certain level of experience and education, so a PMP Course is needed to allow a project manager to be eligible to take the PMP Exam.

PMP Processes: Integration Management

Project integration management is the foundational task of project managers as it connects disparate knowledge areas. It is the method by which the project manager combines the various areas of a project together. In reality, the project manager can be considered an integrator since they are the ones that combine the efforts of colleagues and the various project management processes into a cohesive effort to achieve a successful project. It covers the processes, actions, and tasks that are utilized to bring together disparate project initiatives into a coherent, goal-oriented effort. The Project integration PMP Process is something that project managers cannot delegate due to the aforementioned responsibilities and needed knowledge.

1 of 49 Project Management Processes: Develop Project Charter Process

The first of the PMP 49 processes is the Develop Project Charter Process. The goal of this step in Project Management is to establish the project and grant the project manager the authorization document needed to obtain all of the resources the project will require.

The Develop Project Charter Process is the primary process that should be followed, as it supports the work of the project manager. The main output of the Develop Project Charter Process is the project charter, which is the documentation created from project requirements, the business case, and the benefits management plan. This is an internal document for project verification and authorization, while contracts are used externally.

The main items on the project charter are the project objectives, as well as their top-level requirements and finalization processes.

Additionally, the process also creates an assumptions log, which is where a Project Manager or other eligible colleague makes projections regarding the project.

To learn more in-depth about this process, sign up to a PMP Course which provides a full and in-depth look at everything needed to pass the PMP Exam.

2 of 49 Project Management Processes: Develop Project Management Plan Process

As we discussed in the introduction, the project manager acts as an aggregator of systems, individuals and processes. The Develop Project Management Plan Process connects all of the various plans into one master project management plan, integrated with all of the other process plans and systems.

This process is critical when it comes to developing a project plan as it ensures there is no mismatch between component plans. This process is critical for project success in this regard. Even if component plans are handled by experts, the project manager must stay on top of the process to oversee the project as a whole.

3 of 49 Project Management Processes: Direct and Manage Project Work Process

The third PMP project management process involves the leadership and control of the activities of the project. This process develops the work deliverables and change requests for project work. This is a good organizational tool for establishing the project’s initial workflow.

4 of 49 Project Management Processes: Manage Project Knowledge Process

The manage project knowledge process is a process used to generate higher quality results in a project, along with updating and improving upon team and company knowledge to improve not only the existing project’s results, but also that of future projects.

5 of 49 Project Management Processes: Monitor and Control Project Work Process

This process is a pivotal aspect of Project Management and involves the assessment, review and documentation of a project and its activities. The goal is to be able to display the status of a project along with providing the data to discover any issues in performance and display any areas for improvement. One of the main outputs for this PMP process are performance reports.

6 of 49 Project Management Processes: Integrated Change Control Process

Many Project Managers have to deal with change requests, and knowing how to handle them efficiently as a project progresses is imperative to the project’s success. Whether the project stakeholders need to request additional resources, or a change in deliverables is now needed, the integrated change control process will have all the documentation to explain the procedure for requesting and implementing these changes.

Along with this, it also provides an analysis of the change requests themselves, how it will affect the scope of the project and the various areas that are interconnected. A change request could potentially change many items of a project, such as the timeframe, the resources, the cost and the effort. Following an integrated change control process means that changes can be completed efficiently with minimum damage to the project as a whole.

7 of 49 Project Management Processes: Close Project/Phase Process

When a project (or part of a project) is completed, there is a process that must be followed to close it correctly. The Project Manager will perform this process each time a stage of a project is completed, and when the project in total has closed.

The process ensures that all of the project’s deliverables (or deliverables of a  project phase) have been completed along with all the needed documentation that accompanies it is complete and organized correctly. In addition, it works as an official declaration that can be seen as the project progresses.

PMP Processes – Scope Management

 When it comes to scope, the project manager acts as the auditor and controller that understands the consequences that can happen to a project without proper oversight. The Project Manager can prevent the project from running out of resources or over budget by managing the scope, ensuring each deliverable is completed correctly without additional features being worked on that are not part of a project. Disclaiming what is NOT in scope can be just as important as what IS in scope.

8 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Scope Management Process

The objective of this process is to establish a concrete Scope Management Plan which acts as a guideline for how to deal with the project and its scope as the project progresses – ensuring there is a structure that can be followed depending on how the project is developing, whether it is on time or behind schedule and what to do if these issues do arise.

9 of 49 Project Management Processes:  Collect Requirements Process

Without requirements, a project cannot begin. This is why the Collect Requirements Process is so important, not only is it the process that collects all of the needed requirements for the project, but it also manages and organizes them in an appropriate and efficient way. It tracks the requirements and keeps the project progressing

10 of 49 Project Management Processes:  Define Scope Process

This stage of project management is to build a comprehensive description for the project. In addition it is to define the work that the various teams within the project must complete in order to complete this product. It also establishes the project’s limits and acceptance criteria. The project team should have a project scope statement after going through this procedure.

11 of 49 Project Management Processes: Create WBS Process

The WBS, process, or work breakdown structure process is a manner used to design the project in such a way that the work is organized into small components rather than one large block. This way it allows the project to be more controllable. The final output of this process is a framework designed which lists all the deliverables and documentation that will need to be submitted to complete each section of the work project.

12 of 49 Project Management Processes: Validate Scope Process

Validation is important for any project, the scope of which is one a critical part of validation. This process therefore has the goal of confirming and finalizing the project deliverables and the outputs expected. Once this is formalized, the client is much more likely to accept the final product as it is clearly laid out what they will expect to obtain once the project is complete.

On top of this, it also provides a benefit to the project manager as it gives them a baseline for what is expected of the project, so they can analyze and notice any differences between what the client is expecting, the requirements agreed and the project’s work that is actually being developed and as such can correct this early.

13 of 49 Project Management Processes: Control Scope Process

Controlling the scope can be seen as something quite simple: Is the work being produced within the timeframe and budget and effort that was initially listed. However, in order to control it within an organized and efficient manner, the Control Scope Process must be developed. Creating correct change request systems to track and relate to the scope of work. This process provides an efficient way to maintain the scope of a project without seeing feature creep develop into the project, as the scope will warn of consequences of this.

PMP Processes – Schedule Management

Schedule Management revolves around the schedule, the timelines and keeping a project from not going over the deadline. The various processes are built to control this schedule and manage the project to keep it within schedule and scope. It also involves organizing and presenting these deadlines, as such these processes range from the planning aspect to also the controlling and monitoring aspects.

14 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Schedule Management

This process results in the creation of guidelines on how to plan and control the schedule within the project, taking into consideration issues that may arise and corrective steps that can be taken to return the schedule back to an acceptable limit.

15 of 49 Project Management Processes: Define Activities

Defining activities can be seen as a simple process, as far as its description goes, but it is an important one that must be done right. This process involves detailing the specific actions that each activity will require so that the in can develop the deliverable stated in the project. Generally, the output for this PMP Process is an activity list revealing what is needed to create the final product.

16 of 49 Project Management Processes: Sequence Activities

The Sequences Activities Process revolves around discovering and listing the project activities and how they relate to one another, if they are dependent on other activities and tasks and how they are related to activities being undertaken, external to the specific project being managed.

17 of 49 Project Management Processes: Estimate Activity Durations

This process involves defining the durations that each activity will take, estimating it and using this data to understand and predict the timeline and schedule of the project.

18 of 49 Project Management Processes: Develop Schedule

As an aggregator, a project manager will need to collect and collate all of the varying schedules that each part of the project will take and develop a complete timeline and schedule with this data. The Develop Schedule Process focuses on this and assists in building the schedule and timeline.

19 of 49 Project Management Processes: Control Schedule

Controlling the schedule is imperative to ensuring a project remains within the scheduled timeframe and deadlines are met. The project manager will ensure that the activities are on schedule, timelines flow and the project schedule documents are being filled as project components are being completed. To this end, the project manager will also manage change requests and analyze their effect on the schedule.

PMP Processes – Cost Management

This part of project management revolves around controlling and managing the project costs to ensure the project remains on budget — as such a monitoring system must be put in place.

20 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Cost Management Process

This process is the base for managing costs across the project. It involves creating the guides on the procedure for the estimates that are made at the start of the project (and as it progresses if needed), how the costs will be managed and importantly, how they will be monitored.

21 of 49 Project Management Processes: Estimate Costs Process

Estimating the cost that a project will incur is pivotal when organizing how a project will proceed, a Project Manager will use the Estimate Costs PMP Process to deliver, as accurately as possible, a projection of the costs that will be incurred during the project’s duration.

22 of 49 Project Management Processes: Determine Budget Process

As an aggregator, the project manager will once again collate information across all project areas to create an accurate estimate of the cost and define a budget for each section of the project. A formal cost baseline is established, a cost threshold that a project can acceptably run up to if it goes over this baseline, and additional budgets can be considered for contingency situations.

23 of 49 Project Management Processes: Control Costs Process

Project Managers use the Control Costs Process to monitor the project in relation to cost, with an eye to controlling and managing the cost baseline that may undergo changes or be affected. This process is what is needed to initiate a performance review should cost and schedule be affected too greatly.

PMP Processes – Quality Management

Delivering a high quality product is essential, when we look at Quality Management we must balance that with the scheduling and cost processes to deliver the product with the quality that is to be expected by our declared deliverables. QM contains almost all areas of a project.

24 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Quality Management

This process exists to plan ahead of time the quality of product that is to be delivered at the project end. It will include all of the information needed to be able to measure this, such as metrics, requirements and quality standards that a project must stick to. In addition to this, it will plan for and ensure compliance to these standards.

25 of 49 Project Management Processes: Manage Quality Process

Once the aforementioned plan has been developed, the Manage Quality Process converts it into relevant actions that can be incorporated to ensure the project follows the set standards.

26 of 49 Project Management Processes: Control Quality Process

This process is in regard to the overview of the quality of a project as it takes place. It involves creating a system to measure and monitor the standards of project deliverables being developed so that each component, and thus the whole project, is finished to expected standards. It is important that this Control Quality Process records the results of these activities and how changes are performed.

PMP Processes – Resource Management

Resources are the lifeblood of a project, properly managing them is critical to sustaining a project until completion and delivering a high quality product within budget and on schedule. The Resource Management Processes supports everything in relation to resources, from defining and obtaining them to managing, controlling and monitoring their usage.

27 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Resource Management Process

The Plan Resource Management  process establishes a guideline that the project manager(s) can use for identifying resources, how to acquire them, the plan for managing the resources and the important process of how the Project Manager will be monitoring the resources usage throughout the project.

28 of 49 Project Management Processes: Estimate Activity Resources Process

This PMP process revolves around the projections and collection of knowledge of what resources will be required and how they will be divided through the various components and activities of the project.

29 of 49 Project Management Processes: Acquire Resources Process

This process involves the specific tasks of obtaining the required resources for the project.

30 of 49 Project Management Processes: Develop Team Process

This process involves integrating, aggregating and improving the resources as a whole, supporting improved teamwork and higher skills and abilities. This process acts as a way to collect the resources and integrate them into the teams as a core component, improving workflow and efficiency.

31 of 49 Project Management Processes: Manage Team Process

This is a tracking and controlling process that monitors the performance of the acquired resources and ensures that they are moving at the correct level. When issues arise, this process is used to support and resolve it quickly to prevent damage to the project’s budget, schedule and quality along with, if necessary, readjusting the resources to support restoring them to the expected levels.

32 of 49 Project Management Processes: Control Resources Process

Making sure that the resources that have been acquired are available to the teams that need them is a project manager’s responsibility. The Control Resources Process is used to coordinate the distribution of the resources as initially decided. In addition to this, the Control  Resources Process also measures the actual resource consumption compared to what was planned, so if any variance is detected it can be solved before a problem arises.

PMP Processes – Communications Management

Communication is an important part of any project, the project manager will develop and ensure correct communication channels are used to divulge and deliver project information. In addition, it involves the processes that enable communication between stakeholders and the project team.

33 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Communications Management Process

To begin with, a plan must be developed to outline and define the correct manner of communication.

34 of 49 Project Management Processes: Manage Communications Process

The management aspect of communications ensures that correct usage of communication channels are followed.

35 of 49 Project Management Processes: Monitor Communications Process

Monitoring communications is a process that is organized so that the stakeholders of the project are receiving the relevant and required information.

PMP Processes – Risk Management

Risk Management involves premeditatively preparing for risks that could affect the project, along with the actions needed to be taken to alleviate the issues they could present. It also sets the foundation and guidelines for monitoring and responding to these risks.

36 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Risk Management Process

The initial Plan for risk management establishes a guideline for how a project manager can define and deal with the various risks that may occur during the project.

37 of 49 Project Management Processes:  Identify Risks Process

This important process defines and identifies potential risks, where they could derive from and what variables these risks have.

38 of 49 Project Management Processes: Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis Process

This process involves the assessment of how likely risks are to affect the project, the level of impact they could have on project components and the project as a whole and defines which risks are the most important to protect against.

39 of 49 Project Management Processes: Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis Process

This PMP Process is used to convert the information that has been collected regarding risk and convert it into a quantifiable value. This allows for a cross-project analysis of all the various risks and supports risk prioritization.

40 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Risk Responses Process

This plan is established to provide an agreed upon solution on how to react to the risks as the project progresses.

41 of 49 Project Management Processes: Implement Risk Responses Process

This portion of the Risk Management collection of Processes  revolves around the guidelines set to react to the risks when they do occur.

42 of 49 Project Management Processes: Monitor Risks Process

Not only does this process monitor the risks that could affect the project, but it also tracks the actions that are taken in response to them, allowing for an analysis of the strategies undertaken during the risk management. As the project progresses, new risks may be identified and this process is also used to capture that information.

PMP Processes – Procurement Management

Procurement Management revolves around the acquisition of resources and any contracts and agreements that must be made with external parties.

43 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Procurement Management Process

This plan is used to establish a guideline and documentation for contacting and dealing with providers that would supply the needed resources for a project.

44 of 49 Project Management Processes: Conduct Procurements Process

This process explains the system needed to analyze the various variables and options that must be taken into account when dealing with providers and suppliers of project resources.

45 of 49 Project Management Processes: Control Procurements Process

This PMP Process is used to control and manage the various interactions that are undertaken with third party providers and suppliers. It involves monitoring the performance of each and dealing with any issues that arise along with finishing contracts.

PMP Processes – Stakeholder Management

Stakeholders in a project will need varying levels of communication and integration with a project, as such the processes for managing how the stakeholders can interact with the project and with what portion of it they are involved are defined in the PMP Processes regarding Stakeholder Management. It will define exactly who may be related to the project and at what level along with an analysis of their role and power within the project.

46 of 49 Project Management Processes: Identify Stakeholders Process

This initial process is run to establish who the stakeholders of a project are, with which component they are impacted or impact and how they should or could interact with the project.

47 of 49 Project Management Processes: Plan Stakeholder Engagement Process

The engagement process plans in advance on how stakeholders should be dealt with. Different stakeholders will have different roles and therefore should be communicated with differently: this process also obtains the expectations of the stakeholders and works to manage them as needed.

48 of 49 Project Management Processes:  Manage Stakeholder Engagement Process

This is the management portion of the engagement process, this can occur throughout the project and involves the process of contacting the stakeholders and controlling their needs and change requests.

49 of 49 Project Management Processes:  Monitor Stakeholder Engagement Process

The engagement process also needs to be monitored, which is where this process comes in. Communication and engagement is monitored and the relationships that are being formed and affected are monitored and evaluated. If needed a custom approach is developed for each stakeholder to ascertain the engagement is smooth and positive.

It is often hard to figure out what the right answer was on a quiz or practice exam. Frequently, the correct answer is buried in a lot of text about what options are wrong.

- James

---

The content was spot on and I am much more confident in understanding the processes and how everything works together now. (The) course is great; however, the customer service team is Exceptional! Very responsive and thorough, and at all times; and when I had some technical difficulties (or questions) they stuck with me through resolution. Highly recommended program and company.

The Course documents should remain open for longer than 6 months, given that PMI gives you 365 days to prepare for exam. Also, the option to extend visibility for the course documents, costs almost a 5th of the course, but opens up the docs for just 30 more days. Propose to extend this to 90 days at the very least.

- Vasily

---

I'm very satisfied with the Brain Sensei PMP Exam Preparation Course. All 8 Modules are very well structured and detailed. I believe that practice exams included in the course helped me a lot with the preparation for my PMP Exam. I appreciate Brain Sensei for their amazing course and for the awesome service. They responded to all my requests immediately. Thanks. Highly recommended.

- Helen Borimsky

---

The format of the prep-course is great overall and a great alternative to reading the PMBOK. Barring a few minor glitches here and there, the flow of information ensures that concepts are well understood not only from the point of examination but to the point of application in day to day professional activities. Explanations provided in the answers of prep exams (apart from the 1st one) are also a key to understanding the thought process to be applied. With the focus being on Agile approaches from 2021, the information in the course seemed adequate to cover the concepts. All the Best to all aspirants.

Your course, quizzes at the end of most modules and practice exams truly challenged me. I definitely derived the value and knowledge I was looking for in preparation for taking the PMP Certification Test. In particular, I appreciated the explanations that popped-up in the tests after an answer was submitted - very educational and helpful to my learning/understanding the material and concepts better. Some areas that could be improved (and some of this is nit-picking) include: * Some of the grammar and overall sentence structures, particularly in the latest set of practice exams, needs to be cleaned-up. Some were missing 'of', 'for, or had an extra 'an' in the narrative - got confusing at times. * In the practice exams, I'd like to see shorter sentences rather than the flurry of 'and' and 'or' conjunctions that made reading the sentences go on forever (had to read them multiple times to truly understand their meaning). That said, I enjoyed the overall online course taking experience and thank you for accommodating my requested time extensions. Best regards, Scott Conn

Liked it. Need access for longer though.

What I like best about Brain Sensei is the interactive nature of the course. I think this material would be numbing if delivered as simple lectures with slides. This method is an improvement on that. On the other hand, an in-person course, while more expensive, would likely be even more useful if you have the funds and the time. I haven't taken the PMP exam yet, so I can't comment on how useful the practice tests are.

- James

Great

- Yennyfer

The Brain Sensei PMP program is a wonderful program that condenses the PMBOK into digestible and retainable bites leveraging the power of story telling. If you're looking for a program that will get you your credit hours but also help establish a foundation of PMI knowledge this is the program for you!

- Kenny Dalen

Passed first attempt

- Lee

---

Truly the best course in town if you wish to pass the PMP exam on the first try. I love the idea of playing the role of the samurai and practice your project management skill in her shoes. And not to forget, the generous amount of practice exam gave me just the right dose of confidence before taking the real one. Highly recommended

- Minh Vo

---

The course was great, though I found a lot of parts hard to comprehend. I feel a lot more prepared and better skilled to manage projects in my career. Thanks, Brain Sensei.

- Jill Finkelstein

The BrainSensei PMP preparation course provided me with all the material required to be ready for the exam. It is well structured, explains the concepts clearly, and most importantly, provides ample training questions through the four mock exams and assessment questions at the end of each module. I passed the exam with Above Target in all sections on the first attempt.

- Gael Riethmuller

---

Overall I really liked this learning course. It was very helpful and allowed me to be well prepared for the exam. The 2nd and 3rd practice exam are great to give you real example questions and help prepare you for what to expect. BrainSensei's customer service was the best. I had to delay taking my test due to COVID and they extended my membership for free. They went above and beyond my expectation which was great. Only changes I would recommend is to add 1 or 2 more practice exams like the 2nd and 3rd exam and get rid of the agile practice exam. This is not a real focus of the test and therefore is not really applicable in my opinion.

- Ronnie

---

BrainSensei developed a great learning method to prepare for the PMP certification exam. Their customer service is always very professional, fast, spot on and dedicated to your success. I recommend them.

- G. Buchs

---

I've sent several emails to BrainSensei (one of them not so nice, but the rest were okay) and the team has always been so polite in answering the questions. I'm a very straight-forward person and don't like the PMI-ism type questions because they seem like 'gotchas' or traps, and this is not how I manage my team. I took the Master of Project course (which was garbage) then failed the PMP exam. Throughout the PMP exam I felt so out of touch. Even with the first practice exam on BrainSensei I felt out of place, but I am not getting the hang of things. I hope to pass the exam on the second attempt! The brain sensei experience has been *miles* ahead of the Master of Project garbage. Brain Sensei should be proud of both their product and of their team! I love getting replies to my concerns so quickly. Nice work :) !!!

This is by far the best way to prepare yourself for the PMP exam. The material is presented in a unique and engaging way that makes learning it easy and also fun! The company behind this course is also very professional and responsive. Keep up the great work!

I have studied with other programs and I didn’t feel prepared. After a short time with Brain Sensei, I had the confidence to succeed on exam day, which I did on the first try after studying with Brain Sensei. It was worth every penny.

Great program

Course is made for people who are already grounded in the material, not for someone that needs all the basics. Was budget friendly and OK content.

Overall layout is good, but there are some quality issues. Progress isn't always saved across all devices and progress gets lost. Some small spelling mistakes. I loved the practical storyline...

Need improvement in presenting more relevant real exam type questions. The practice exams are too simple and easy and do not prepare you for the real exam. Otherwise, good concept presenting material

The prep materials provided plenty of content which prepared me well for the PMP exam. The questions were packed with information.

Teaches the PMP in a solid manner, some things you need to know as a potential consumer: -The Samurai backstory is extremely short, and didn’t really assist me with recall in any in-depth way. It only gave broad brush-strokes as to what each phase entailed. -MOST of what was on the test was covered in the lessons, however if I had zero real prior PM knowledge prior to the test, I would have failed. -The first practice test forces you, as the student to actually read into the PMBOK, which was a benefit in the long run as it assisted me with quickly referencing what I needed to find. -The course will likely cover wave tops and subjects, forcing me to self-study for a week before my test... not a bad deal all things considered. -Brain Sensei’s course has incorporated Agile into one of their practice tests, and this test IS mandatory. This may seem strange, and I didn’t get a satisfactory reason why I needed to take a purely Agile test when I only wanted to take the PMP, for anyone else in this scenario, this is the reason: In June, PMI is revamping the PMP test to include Agile as a significant portion of the PMP. Brain Sensei is just ahead of the curve trying to get students prepared... fret not. Their customer service is extremely responsive and does take care of their members. My program had a couple bugs, and the customer service fixed my problems within 24 hours. All in all... it was absolutely worth the money for me.

I am very impressed with this learning system. The content is laid out in a way that will make any learner understand all the process groups and ITTOs in order to understand Project management and be equipped to excel in the test. The learning system is engaging and fun at the same time. It's very different than other learning material which is composed mostly of videos. Some improvements are needed, but in my opinion Brain Sensei is great value for money

At first, I was attracted to Brain Sensei training for their original learning program using a Samurai's story. And indeed it made the whole learning experience funnier - so easier. I felt like the Samurai. Then, I was amazed by The Brain Sensei Team's reactivity and help when I reached out through contact@brainsensei.com Their support was constantly reliable and efficient. I appreciated their professionalism and didn't feel on my own. At last, the course and the practice exams proved to be efficient since I passed the PMP exam - with 'Above Targe't in all Domains. So thank you so much Brain Sensei Team !! Charlene

Overall very good. Got stuck a few times trying to find resources which I should have downloaded the before starting the program. Customer service has been great.

SO far I am thoroughly enjoying the Brain Sensei PMP prep course. I have taken a Project management class as a part of my degree which I recently completed and project management has always interested me. I find the course to be educational and easy to follow. I am grateful that this course has been designed in such a way that is simple to understand all of the complexities in project management and that allows me to study at my own pace.

This review is based on completing all course work through module 102. The story and interactive nature of the course are helpful for learning and relating the material. It would be nice to have the page numbers to the PMBOK guide where references are made to it. Other information that will be helpful, are the explanations to the practice questions at the end of each module. These are provided only after immediately answering the questions. Having these available in the score summary from the 'history' tab will be helpful to refresh why the answer is correct and other options are not.

Overall I would rate this course an 8/10. I liked how there were exams towards the end of every module and I felt that it was very useful having it laid out in different scenarios. I rate it only an 8/10 as I had some glitch/software issues and lost my progress resulting in me having to re-do modules/exams multiple times. All in all, that was maybe useful in the end as it was a way for me study or 're-learn' the course material. Thank you!

Clear and precise explanations of how things work. I was never lost navigating the course.

A smart approach to present the information which makes it fun and engaging while at the same time preparing for the PMP exam. Brain Sensei differentiates itself from other PMP exam preps in that it delivers the knowledge through the use of storytelling technique. I recommend this course because it will help you pass your PMP exam on the first try.

Loved the story telling and the practice exams. I felt very prepared when the actual exam came around.

One of a kind training that was truly engaging!

Excellent course for preparing for the PMP exam in a fun and engaging way! The practice questions resemble the actual questions on the exam making it a completely worthwhile experience.

I passed the PMP exam after taking Brain Sensei's Online PMP Certification Exam Prep. The practice exam questions were so similar to the questions that appeared on the exam. On exam day, when I sat down to take the test and started running through the questions I felt so relieved! The practice exams are also timed so you get more comfortable with the exam experience and feel better prepared when you sit down to take the test. The other differentiator was the video content throughout the modules. The concepts are taught through a story of a young samurai defending her kingdom. This will probably be the only PMP prep course where you can learn all the knowledge areas and feudal Japan at the same time. I'd recommend this course not just because of the videos but because it helped me pass my exam on the first try.

Loved the unique approach and it still had all the info I'd expect from a full PMP exam prep course. Very responsive on questions too.
