Summary

Recognizing the importance of portfolio management, the Project Management Institute (PMI®) has launched a new certification entitled the Portfolio Management Professional (PfMP®). PfMP® Exam Practice Tests and Study Guide is the most comprehensive resource available to help you prepare for and pass the PfMP® certification exam. It provides coverage that is current with The Standard for Portfolio Management, Third Edition and the PfMP® Examination Content Outline (ECO), 2013.

The book consists of five sections, each of which corresponds to one of the five domains described in the ECO. Each section includes study hints, a list of major topics that may be encountered on the exam, and 20 multiple-choice practice questions that illustrate the applicable task from the ECO. Each section also includes an answer sheet and answer key with the rationale for each correct answer and references to the Standard. Supporting references are also listed at the end of the book for each of the domains covered on the exam.

Written by Dr. Ginger Levin, co-author of best-selling PMP® and PgMP® study guides, the book includes two complete practice tests, each consisting of 170 questions that follow the blueprint of the actual PfMP® exam as described in the ECO. For example—

  • 25 percent of the questions relate to Strategic Alignment
  • 20 percent relate to Governance
  • 25 percent relate to Portfolio Performance
  • 15 percent relate to Portfolio Risk Management
  • 15 percent relate to Communications Management

The two accompanying online tests feature a proprietary scoring algorithm to help you determine if you are Proficient, Moderately Proficient, or Below Proficient in each domain. Earning the PfMP® certification is a prestigious accomplishment. By studying this book and using the practice exams provided, you will significantly improve your chances of passing the exam, the first time around.
