Integration Management What is it?

By , December 12, 2013 9:09 am

The Umbrella Process

There are a number of processes that come together for good project management. Integration Management is the process that over-arches all of the rest. It is the place that is used to identify the activities that will be needed on the project, define and coordinate the objectives, and unify the efforts. This is the place where objectives are balanced and interdependencies explored.

How is all of this accomplished?

It starts in the initiating process group. The develop project charter process sets the framework for the entire effort. In this process the objectives of the endeavor are set down along with the business case, the contract, and the statement of work.

These documents will come together to form the basis of what will be authorized for the team to work on. This step adds a specific formality to the project, it creates the basis for the exchange of value and should state clearly the expected results of the project. Then comes Develop Project Management Plan

Develop Project Management Plan

This has reference to “how” you are going to manage the project. How are you going to measure your progress? When and what is going to be reported? How will decisions be made, and how will needed change happen. all of the how questions need to be answered at this time. Again, this concerns how the project will be managed, not any of the detail about the project itself. Then the core of the project falls under this umbrella:

Direct and Manage Project Execution

After the planning, after the set up, after the initialization, then the real work of managing the project takes place. Having a plan for directing the project and how the execution will take place is essential. Here is where the actual work is managed. But, your project will require some oversight. That is where the next piece of the puzzle comes in:

Monitor and Control Project Work

The activities of reviewing, tracking, and then regulating the project activities fall into this portion of the Integration Management. Here you measure, analyze, and then decide on any changes that might need to be made. An integrated change management system is needed, and stakeholders need to know at every mile stone or junction how the project is progressing, and what risk need to be addressed. The project will eventually come to a conclusion, and the deliverables will be presented to the sponsor. The project then needs to be formally closed.

Close the Project is the last process in the Integration Management and includes things like creating the “lessons learned” files that will stay with the project.

That is what Integration Management is all about. It kind of follows the entire course of the project at the highest level and makes sure the pieces fit together.

Achieving PMP Certification Isn’t the End

As most people know, getting the PMP certification is a huge mile stone in your career, but it can’t end there. If you want to keep your PMP current you have to continue to participate in Project Management activities. Some of those activities can earn you PDUs. Maintaining the certification requires 35 PDUs every three years.

The reality is that Project Management changes so quickly, there is a need to stay current. On top of that, your projects deserve the best. You can only be the best while you continue to learn and grow.

PMP-no-stop

Project Management is a very difficult endeavor, it has never been for the faint-of-heart. But now that the profession is finding its way into the lime-light, more and more people are looking at project managers as their salvation.

It is estimated that 1/5 of the world’s GDP will be spent on projects this next year. Will you be a part of that? Will you protect the projects resources? Will you make change in your organization that will assure success?

The world is needing not just good project managers, but great project managers. The processes espoused by the PMI can help any organization. You can be a hero. But, you need to get certified, then continue learning. Catch a project management podcast. Find a good book on project management, or go a step further. Research something that is an interest to you or that is a problem with your organization. After the research, publish the finding. You can get PDUs by publishing your own findings, or sharing your lessons learned.

Make an impact on the world by adding to the combined project management base of knowledge. Do your part, and see how much better project management will treat you.

PMP Practice Exam

Success on the PMP Exam requires some real work. It is a difficult exam, and covers a lot of material. The exam not only covers material in the PMBoK Guide, but expects applicants to understand how to apply the principles.

free-pmp-exam-questions

When it comes to taking a test, there are few things that help as much as taking a “mock” test, or answering practice questions. Sure, you can’t answer questions when you haven’t done the homework and studied up on the material. You have to do a good job learning about Project Management and best practices, but taking a lot of sample questions will make a world of difference.

I have seen a lot of people pass the PMP exam. It happens most every week somewhere. Most of these people are able to pass it on the first try, if they come prepared.

That preparation begins and ends with sample PMP exam questions. I can hear it now–whoa… what to you mean begins with sample questions?

Here is a secret that will knock your socks off! How do you know what to study for the PMP exam? As with everything else, if you start with the end in mind, the course becomes very clear. Start with the PMP exam questions, and discover what you need work on. If you miss a lot of questions on the scope processes–well, then dig into your study materials about scope! If you miss a lot of questions about process groups, or other PMP processes, then you know exactly what to study and become more familiar with.

Well, what if you don’t decide to take any PMP practice exams? Then you will never know where your weaknesses are, and you will be going into the exam blind at best.

Look, it costs you nothing to take these 170 free exam questions from 4 separate exams. But the rewards could be knowing your are ready to sit for the exam. The PMP exam cost is too high to be taking it over and over again. Do it right the first time. Take the sample PMP exam and know where to spend your time with more preparation. Be as efficient as you can, and that will deliver the best results for you on the PMP Exam. And do it now for FREE.

If you are needing a bit more training, then, I would suggest an R.E.P. accredited training that has been used by hundreds of people to pass the exam. There are two that I think hold a lot of value.

PMP Training That Follows The PMBoK

By , October 30, 2013 9:21 am

The PMI Published The PMBoK

PMP-training

One of the first things that I did when I started preparing for the PMP exam, is I became a member of the PMI organization. PMI is the largest project management organization on the face of the planet. I learned from the PMI the value of the PMBoK, and although I found it to be a little dry, I thought that it had real value.

I began collecting PMP training materials from all over. I discovered that most of them didn’t correspond with the PMBoK very well, with one notable exception.

Someone else noticed this as well, and in his “lessons learned” excerpt he explains what he found.

This week’s featured lessons learned comes to us courtesy of Scott Gillard.

In this lessons learned Scott Gillard shared with us the lessons he learned later that he wish he had learned weeks ago with regards to The PM PrepCast.

I first started my studies with only the PMBOK guide. After reading the first chapter several times, I was completely at a loss for retaining the information. Then I focused on going through The PM PrepCast videos and my PMBOK Guide has been sitting on my desk. My thought was I’d re-attempt to read it after the videos.

During the Human Resource section I wanted to review something that was mentioned in the PM PrepCast against the PMBOK guide. Trying to find the topic, I still had the Prepcast running at the same time. I noticed something that, for me, was a light bulb that went off. You can almost follow the PMBOK guide page for page along with the PM PrepCast. There’s times Cornelius almost says the sentence verbatim. So, you ask.. “what’s the point? I might as well read the PMBOK guide then…”

To read more of his complete experience, please follow this link: http://www.project-management-prepcast.com/index.php/kunena/11-less…

I could totally relate. I started focusing on the training from the Project Management Prepcast, because it followed the PMBoK better than anyone else.

In any case, I would suggest an R.E.P. accredited training that has been used by hundreds of people to pass the exam. There are two that I think hold a lot of value.

It Is All In The Preparation

prepare-for-pmp

I remember a backpacking trip I went on when I was a boy scout. I had almost forgotten about it, and put my pack together in a big hurry. I quickly went through a mental list of the things that I needed. I through it into the pack and away we went.

We got there, and set up camp. We started getting ready to fix dinner, and to my horror, I discovered that I hadn’t brought my camp mess kit. I didn’t have anything to make my dinner in or to eat it out of.

My friends let me use some of their equipment, after they had finished, which meant that I ate my dinner after everyone else, and was the last one left cleaning up after meals. It was a humiliating experience, and one that I won’t forget easily.

I could have avoided the pain with just a little bit of preparation.

The PMP exam costs about $500. You want to make sure that you go into it with enough preparation.

The PMBoK guide is a good place to start. You can get the best price on it here. However, the exam is based more on how a project manager applies what they learn in the PMBoK guide.

There are a number of great resources that you can use to learn Knowledge Areas and the Process Groups that organize the 47 processes that the PMI touts as being best practices for your projects. Knowing how to apply them, and that not all of them will apply to every project is paramount.

I would suggest an R.E.P. accredited training that has been used by hundreds of people to pass the exam. There are two that I think hold a lot of value.

PMP Certification Can Expand Your Horizons

pmp-expand-horizons

When I was young, I went to visit my uncle on the coast of Washington state. We did a little fishing in the surf of a kind of protected harbor. We managed to nab a few small Saltwater Perch. I was elated. It was amazing to pull one in myself. The next day, we boarded a charter boat early in the morning.

The boat moved out of the harbor, and into the open ocean. We traveled far enough out that I could no longer see the shore. The ocean stretched as far as I could see. We finally took up a circular pattern and put out our fishing lines. We “baited” the hooks with herring that were about the size of the perch I had caught the day before.

When my pole stated to dance, I began a 15 minute battle to get the fish out of the water and onto the boat. I managed to land a Silver Salmon that was bigger than any fish I had ever caught in my life!

Expanding Your Horizons Can Make a Difference

The difference was how we had expanded our horizons, moving from the little harbor to the huge ocean.

The PMI®, with the completion of the last PMBoK® v5, has expanded their number of processes from 42 to 47. They also expanded their knowledge areas to include Project Stakeholder Management. This expansion provides more emphasis on a facet of project management that can often make or break the project, that of handling stakeholders.

What Are Project Stakeholders?

Stakeholders can include the client, sponsoring organizations, performing organizations, and everyone that is impacted by the project. Sometimes not all of the stakeholders are immediately obvious.

Expanding horizons is a good thing. Getting PMP® certified can expand horizons for those working in, or wanting to work in project management. Click here for more information about PMP® training.

See The Difference In Your Life

Getting training from an R.E.P approved instructor can make a lot of difference in the quality of the training. Expand your horizons today with R.E.P Approved training, and experience the difference it will make.

Project Manager Certification

project-management-certification

Project management can make or break a project. Projects in the US and abroad are growing, and more and more companies are leaning on projects for their profit and sustainability.

But a project requires a team. It is often a team effort that keeps the project on schedule and on budget.

Creating the environment for successful projects is as much about training the project manager as it is about training the project team members. If members of the team understand the goals of project management, then the constraints can be obvious, and less of a struggle to encourage people to be mindful of what is really important.

Monitoring and controlling a project and its many phases can be made easier and more streamlined when everyone on the team understand the vocabulary and metrics that the project entails. It is difficult for participants to understand the importance of the constant status updates and the quality standards that are being applied to a project until they understand why those metrics are being measured and what they tell the project manager and the executive team.

The Project Management Institute

The PMI has prepared materials for project managers and for project participants. They have created standards that have helped the project community for many years. Applying the standards and best practices will help projects more than most anything else management or task forces can do to put projects back on track and bring them to a successful close.

However, it is up to the organization to help prepare project participants and make sure that those standards that apply to their project are implemented and followed.

A project management certification is a lot like a project management degree. The PMI is the authority in the field and the PMP certification carries more weight than an associates or bachelors in project management.

if your projects are faltering, it may be because team members need to learn how to work better in a project, and how to interact with the project manager and the management team.

This may be your wake-up call that will turn your project around.

It is worth the effort to get your project participants project trained and empowered to make your projects successful.

Using principles from the PMI can help any project.

Project Management training can be obtained via expensive onsite facilities, or at much more affordable online solutions:

Certification for CAPM

capm-vs-pmp

Project Management is a hot topic right now. Nothing helps your project more than to have trained project management professionals on the project. The question, however, comes up, “which credential should I try to get?”

CAPM vs PMP

Although there are six Project Management Institute (PMI) sponsored certifications, no one needs to get all six. They each have their own niche and reason for being. Three are specialty credentials, the PMI-ACP, PMI-SP and the PMI-RMP. The PgMP is a step beyond the PMP and deals with programs rather than projects.

So the real question comes down to which should I get? The CAPM or the PMP?

The PMP is the most prestigious of the two, and pulls the most weight. However, the requirements are different, and the CAPM may be the credential for you.

The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) is an entry-level project management certification and might be what you want as a precursor to your PMP or as an entry point into the project management field.

CAPM Certification Value

The value of the CAPM certificate is that it shows the dedication of the recipient to the project management discipline, and the willingness of the applicant to follow the best practices of the industry.

The requirements are a lot less stringent.

1. A High School Degree

2. 1,500 hours of Project experience OR 23 hours of Project Management Education.

A more detailed account of the requirements can be found in the CAPM handbook.

The PMP credential requires 35 hours of project education, a bachelor’s degree and 4500 hours of project management experience, or 7500 hours of project management experience within six years.

These pre-requisites stop a lot of would be applicants.

CAPM Certification Training

Certification Training for the CAPM is very similar to that needed for the PMP certification. The point of the CAPM test is to verify the applicants understanding of the principles and vocabulary used in the PMBoK guide, and the best practices in the project management field.

Applicants will do best to prepare for the exam through courses designed for the PMP and CAPM tests. There are a number of self-study guides that could be consulted, but applicants that take a course usually do better in the long run.

PMI membership can help in the process. The PMI provides access to articles, white papers, and other publications. It also provides a big discount on the fees to take the exam, and connects members to working professional through local chapters.

Be sure to pick up a  registered R.E.P. training course such as the PM Prepcast or the PM Perfect on Demand course.

Other R.E.P. providers can be found in the database.

Can the CAPM help you get a job?

Project Management is a hot skill right now. Multiple surveys have shown that executives are expecting more and more out of their projects, and that they are looking to those who have shown their skill in project management. That means that a certification or a credential will do wonders to put you on the short list of those being considered for a job.

Start today to make the most of yourself. Start with the CAPM cert and work your way up the PMP.

PMP Accounting Terms

Terms on the PMP From Accounting

pmp-accounting-terms

There are some terms on the PMP exam that are borrowed from the accounting discipline.

You don’t have to have a degree in accounting, and there really aren’t that many–but they are good to know.

You will need them when you are analyzing what project to do. They help to provide a way to look at projects objectively and determine what the long term benefits might be.

Here are the terms to watch for:

+++++++

Net Present Value:

NPV

Net Present Value is the present value of the net benefits of a project over many time periods. That means the total income or revenue after the costs, including interest.

On the exam, you will not have to calculate Net Present Value–but you do have to know that a bigger NPV is better than a smaller one, and that only projects with a positive NPV should ever be attempted.

+++++++

Internal Rate of Return

IRR

Internal Rate of Return is the rate of return that the project will create. The IRR must be higher than interest for the same amount of money put into a bank account or a CD.

On the test you won’t have to calculate the IRR, but know that a bigger IRR is better, and that you would choose the project with the biggest IRR as the one the company should work on.

+++++++++

Payback Period

This refers to the time it will take to repay the investment in the project before the project begins to create a profit.

If one project has a Payback Period of one year, and the other has a Payback Period of four years, you would pick the first project, because it pays back its investment in a much shorter time.

+++++++++

Benefit cost Ratio

This number compares the benefit to the cost. Usually this is done in the form of Revenue divided by Cost. It is usually used as a way to compare projects and the bigger the ratio, the better for the project.

++++++++++

These are the four Accounting terms that will be on the PMP Exam. Although you won’t have to do any calculations with them, they will be needed to help you choose which projects to work on.

There are a number of other things that can help you prepare for the exam.

Consider this cheat-sheet filled with PMP Formulas.

The PMI Likes the Earned Value Method

earned-value-technique

What is the Earned Value Technique?

This is a method used to measure project performance against the project’s baseline. If there is a variance or a deviation from the baseline, Earned Value Management can point out the difference and let project managers and stakeholders make corrections that can put the project back into alignment with the baseline.

Earned value is a technique that can merge time, cost, and work completed as a way to analyze where the project stands and what needs to be “fixed” to get it back on course.

Project managers can use earned value as the basis of their reporting. It can be integrated into performance analysis and even forecasting future performance.

Project reports should always contain the Earned Value figures and the project managers interpretation of what they mean and why those indications were extracted from the numbers.

Here is a quick cheat-sheet for the EV calculations:

 

Acronym Term
PV Planned Value
EV Earned Value
AC Actual Value
BAC Budget at Completion
EAC Estimate at Completion
ETC Estimate to Completion
VAC Variance at Completion

 

 

Name Formula
Cost Variance (CV) EV-AC
Schedule Variance (SV) EV-PV
Cost Performance Index (CPI) EV/AC
Schedule Performance Index (SPI) EV/PV
Estimate at Completion (EAC) BAC/CPI or AC+ETC or AC+(BAC-EV)
Estimate to Completion (ETC) EAC-AC
Variance at Completion (VAC) BAC-EAC

Remember that if you are calculating a variance then it is EV minus something, and that EV comes first in a lot of the formulas.

What you really need is to do a number of practice sessions with the formulas.

This is only the basis of Earned value. There are a number of other formulas that you will still want to find an memorize for the exam.

I have found a number of resources that are incomplete with it comes to PMP exam formulas. The most complete that I have found is the PM Exam Formulas.

Producing a Project Schedule

creating-a-project-schedule

Producing a project schedule can be a time-consuming and difficult task. However, without a schedule, your project won’t be successful. So how can you get started more quickly?

5 Tips For Faster Project Scheduling

Here are our top 5 tips for producing your project schedule faster.

Tip 1: Use templates
The fastest way to build your project schedule is to use a template. This is a sample, blank project schedule that you can edit to make it suitable for your current project. For example, you can use a template for a web project to get started if you are also managing a web project. This would include several of the key activities such as website design and testing. You could then add any additional tasks that are specific to your project. If you do use a templates, don’t forget to delete any tasks that are not relevant to your project.

Your Project Management Office or your software tool may have a range of templates that you can customize for your projects.

Tip 2: Use task lists
If you have to build your project schedule from scratch, the best way to start is with a task list. List all the tasks for your project. You can even import task lists from other applications, which is useful if you have already started planning your project in a workshop or meeting.

Remember to include all the tasks that you need to do to deliver the project, such as designing, building and testing deliverables as well as the tasks required to run the project, such as team meetings, the work required to produce documents and governance activities.

Tip 3: Allocate resources
Get your team working faster by using your project management tools to allocate tasks to them. You’ll avoid the need for lengthy meetings as they can pick up their assignments online, whenever is convenient for them.

If you don’t know who should be working on which task, discuss it at a team meeting. Sometimes there will only be one suitable person, and sometimes you may have to ask for a volunteer! In the meantime, you can delegate the rest of the work to the team. Then they can get started on their activities and you won’t hold up any other project work.

Tip 4: Structure your schedule
Group similar tasks together. You can also build project phases by looking at where it is logical to split the work into time bound chunks. Add milestones to mark the end of significant elements of work. If your schedule is structured effectively, it will be much easier to use. As a result, you will spend less time producing it in the first place and less time keeping it up to date as the project progresses.

Tip 5: Track it regularly
One of the reasons that project scheduling can be so time-consuming is that project managers let their schedules get out of date. Updating a project schedule that reflects what happened several weeks ago can be a challenge, especially on projects that move quickly. It is much better to put aside some time each week to update your plan. You can keep on top of changes and make sure that your project team always has the correct view of current progress. Other project stakeholders will also find this useful.

Using principles from the PMI can help any project.

Project Management training can be obtained via expensive onsite facilities, or at much more affordable online solutions:

Two such solutions are:

The PM Prepcast

PM Perfect PMP Bootcamp.

The Project Management PMP Certification

project-management-pmp

Are you managing projects at work? If you are always working on projects that have a definite beginning and a definite end, they are probably projects.

Projects differ from other work in that they create unique products, services or outcomes, and typically just aren’t the same going from one to the other.

Project Management is a very highly sought after skill, that not a lot of people can do very well.

If you are managing projects, then learning to manage them using PMP methodologies can be very advantageous. In fact most PMPs see a 10 to 30 percent increase in their salaries after becoming a PMP.

What does PMP stand for? It means Project Management Professional. That is a credential that is managed by the Project Management Institute.

The PMI teaches people how to manage the scope, schedule, cost, risk, and other knowledge areas of projects–even though each project will differ significantly from other projects. They teach PMs how to create project plans that will include just the processes that are necessary for your project, and no others.

Corporate Knowledge Base

project-management-knowledge-base

The following are what makes up the organizational knowledge base for storing and retrieving information.

Baselines of the performing organization’s standards, processes, procedures, policies and documentation around the project. It also includes the configuration management databases.

All the financial data–financial databases containing information such as labor hours, costs,  and budgets.

The historical information including lessons learned. That would include project records and documents, all project begin and closure information. Of importance are also documentation, information regarding both the results of previous project, selection decisions, and previous project performance information.
The defect database including current issue and defect management. Documentation around issues and defect status, control information, issue and defect resolution, etc.
Everything about process measurement. Methods and results collected and measurement data on processes and products.

Finally the project files from previous projects (e.g., scope, cost, schedule, and performance measurement baselines, project calendars, project schedule network diagrams, risk registers, planned response actions, and defined risk impact.

This is the bulk of the Corporate Knowledge Base. There may be more or less dependent on the project itself. Each project is individual and will not have the same documents.

Project Management Processes

process-groups
Project management is applying knowledge, tools, techniques, and skills to activities that meet the requirements of the project. The processes that combine together to facilitate the application of knowledge makes up what we know as the project management processes.
You can think of a process as a set of interrelated actions, activities, and procedures that are performed to create a specific product, service, or result. Usually, each process can be characterized by its inputs, outputs, and the tools and techniques that can be applied.

The project manager must consider foundational things such as organizational process assets and enterprise environmental factors. Every process is affected by those specific inputs. They make up the context and the environment that the project is executed under.

These two inputs are not explicit to every process–but should still be in the back of the mind of the project managers.

Organizational process assets are the guidelines and can be the criteria for the frame work that specifies organization’s processes to the needs of the project.

Enterprise environmental factors often constitutes the constraints of the project management options, meaning that in order for their project to be successful, the project team must: select the appropriate processes that are required to meet the project objectives, and use an approach that is adapted to meet the project requirements.

Successful projects also have the following characteristics: they establish and maintain stakeholder communication and engagement. They meet stakeholder needs, requirements and expectations. They strike a balance between the project constraints–scope, schedule, budget, quality, resources, and risk.

Generally speaking there are two types of processes:

Project management processes. These are the  processes that guide the flow of the project through the project life cycle.

Product-oriented processes. These are the processes that make up the specific project and create the product, service or solution.

Following the PMP Project Management Processes adds framework, accountability, and adds to the success of projects.

Project Managers need PMP training and need to follow the processes that make for good project management.

Project Management training can be at expensive onsite facilities, or at much more affordable online solutions:

PM Perfect PMP Bootcamp.

Organizational Influences

and Project Life Cycle

project-coordinator

The business organization that you end up in will often dictate what role you play, and how you perform in that role.

A project manager may be doing many of the same things as a project coordinator — perhaps even all of the same things.

What is the difference?

It comes down to the authority and responsibility of the individual within a business organization and environment.

A project manager has more authority than a project coordinator. A project manager would be more likely to be found in a projectized organization or a matrix organization.

When projects are owned by functional managers, the project manager usually becomes a project coordinator, with less authority and less responsibility for the project and the people involved in the project.

Understanding the roles of a project manager and a project coordinator, and how they may be influenced by the organizational structure can be learned from online PMP training.

project-management-questions

Among the thoughts that race through the mind of those who have contemplated getting their PMP, are those that are centered around the test itself. What are the project management certification questions that I will encounter on the exam?

Those that have taken the exam pledged not to reveal the exact questions on the exam. Any PMP caught doing so, stands in jeopardy of losing their certification.

However, there are a lot of PMP sample exams and Exam simulators that have similar questions as those found on the exam itself.

It has been said that practice makes perfect. This saying has withstood the test of time. Without a doubt, great athletes, musicians, artisans, and so many other only reach the heights of perfection after years, and thousands of hours of practice.

I’m not saying that you or I will need years of practice to get ready for the project management exam questions–but I am saying that we would be fools to ignore that practice is the best way to prepare.

Certainly, it does no good to take practice exams if you don’t have the knowledge or experience to even have a chance to answer the questions correctly. But, if you are truly prepared, then the litmus test could be taking a number of sample exams.

Where are you going to find the best set of PMP questions? They can be found in a program that is designed to give project management students a number of base tests to practice and a way to just take questions from the sections that are troublesome for you.

Go a head and take a peek!

1800 realistic exam questions!

Detailed explanations

Realistic environment.

Don’t try to sit for the exam until you have had some practice. You will definitely pass the exam on the first try if you do this one thing.

PMP Exam Questions

pmp-sampe-questions

One of the important aspects of preparing for your PMP Certification is going through a process of answering a series of sample questions that are purposely meant to test your readiness for the big day. As you may already have realized, studying for the exam requires a lot of work, including taking numerous sample tests to find out if you can cope with the question format of the actual exam.

This is why we recommend that you take at least 1,000 PMP exam sample questions. This means that you simulate a complete 4 hours exam to gauge your ability to finish the actual exam on time. As a general rule of thumb: If you are able to correctly answer at least 85% or more of the practice questions on your first try, then you are ready for the PMP Certification Exam.

It is important that you take these full sample exams as they prepare you for the rigors of the exam day, and the type of questions that will be asked. It is even possible that you will encounter questions similar to the ones on your sample tests during the actual exam.

Remember that PMI does not release the actual number of questions that you need to answer correctly in order to pass. You can read up on the exact scoring system in the PMP Handbook. The best that you can do is to take a shot at practicing with sample exams. That helps you to get prepared.
