PM formulas emails

Thank you for sending the emails with the formula review and description.  The description of each is very helpful with my studying.

Abundance of Data

My initial impression of the Study Guide was information overload! Coupled with the 2-a-day Program Management Professional Formula guide and Prepcast types of questions emails that I was receiving, I knew that I had chosen the right study partner! However, the sheer volume of the information that was flooding into my email was daunting. This has been my daily schedule since I purchased the PrepCast: Print the emails, compare my answer of the previous days question to the correct answer, read...

Title of What?

While the formula emails are great they make up very little of the test.  I think I had 3 or 4 very basic formula questions on the test

The PMP formula guide has been very helpful to me.  Getting an email every day is useful reminder to continue to study (in addition to the actual study content).  Each note is easy to digest and gets you to study for an extra five to ten minutes a day - especially on an important exam topic that you might not be focusing on that day (or even at all).

I enjoy the regular exam tips and formula notes.  These are great motivators and tool to keep focusing on getting that PM...

Dear ,

 Thank You for requesting for feedback, following is my feedback,

1. Expectations not set - In terms on how many E-mails will I receive , what is the duration , when is the last e-mail gonna come. No expectations set at all.

2. No particular order in receiving E-mails , I believe there has to be a sequence of education.

3. A final e-mail with a attachement document consolidating all the formula and explanations.

On the flip side ,

The illustration is very profound. Beyond studying for the pmp exams, I find the pmp formula guide very engaging as elicits the urge to adapt the knowledge to real life project scenarios.

PMP Formula Guide

I love the formula guide - it's an entertained way of learning boring formulas. Frankly, it would have been difficult to remember all the formiulas without fun explanation the guide provides


Wan Mustapha Wan Ismail

The formula sheets had helped me a lot to get through the PMP and the PMI-SP exams. Its a piece of a gem. It is a well prepared and concise document which is tailored to ease the understanding, memorising and its logical layout makes it really appealing and suited to aspiring PMP advocates. It is a MUST to have to get through the exams.


So far so good

I am studing for the PMP, so far I really like the formula emails and the emails with others experience (Today's Expert).  I am doing really well with the prepcast. I am really liking all the study material and all the material that are making me feel very secure and supported. Thank you.

Awesome! But timing is wrong

I've read most of them and archived them for review later.  Not sure if this is possible, but if it could be in lock step with the material I'm studying that would be even better. To date I've received about 10, but I'm only on module 5 and haven't reached formulas yet.


enjoying the course, thanks!

I found the formula guide helpful, short enough to be read and long enough to be understood.

I find them helpful. At the moment I take each email and print it out for later review on the train. 

Would be nice to have all these in a .pdf (I know there is a formula document, and your explanations are helpful).

Using the Force

I've used several powerpoint to flash converters and powerpoint force has some considerable advantages... not least the very easy integration with Wordforce (a lovely way to put large documents online) and Quizforce (simple, straightforward and very easy to use). Then the very easy and effective integration with joomlalms as a scorm course. The support given is excellent. Does not cause MS office to hang, throw errors or have a hissy fit (unlike many others I could mention!). What powerpoint ...

Excellent Value to all who choose to take the little bit of time it takes to review and apply to memory the information provided! The information and the way it is provided is really and truly priceless to anyone who wishes to acquire and/or maintain a PMP certification.

Regis Piccand

I'm not a math kind of guy, and really needed some support to better understand what the formulas where about, and how to apply them. The PM Formula Guide was a great tool to learn about these. The 1-page cheat-sheet was always with me. I have used the Head First PMP preparation book and it is missing a concise and complete description of all formulas that you have to know for the exam. The PM Formulas guide filled the gap perfectly.

Regis Piccand


The materials were very well put together. I am concerned however that i couldnt find alot of the formulas in the PMBOK edition 4, so are wondering how current the material is?

[Editor's response: All our PMP Exam Prep materials are 100% updated for the most current version of the PMP Exam. The reason why you cannot find the formulas in the PMBOK Guide is that only about 75% of the exam is directly related to the Guide. The rest of the material comes from various other sources. Rest a...

Dear Cornelius:

I would like to  get the rest of the formulas by email, as well as like the PMP Formula Study Guide, the 101 PMP Sample Questions Formula, the Formula Pocket Guide and this email Course.
Although it would be sensational if the 101 pmp sample questions could  be in a podcastt, because i could  listen while I drive way to work or home, my journey is 1:15 in the morning and back 1:30.
I\'m not clear how it would work through the Face or Twitter, I have an acc...

The explanations are clear and concise for all formulas.

I especially liked the 105 question quiz.    The detailed answers helped me to understand how touse the formulas correctly.

I found the PM Formulas guide to be excellent. It provides a thorough and in-depth - yet concise - way to learn, review and completely understand all of the formulas needed for the PMP exam, all in one very handy guide.
The sample formula-focused exam was also great - a fantastic confidence booster, as the questions really made sure you needed to understand the theory behind the numbers and formulas, rather than just knowing them "by heart".
I highly recommend this product - it is ...

The PM Formula Guide was more than just formulas.  The Formula guide includes explanations on how to use the formulas and what they mean.    You still have to memorize the formulas, but it is easier, once you understand their purpose.


Mirza Z. Ali

Good job for putting together the formula sheet. I did not have to look at any other source for formulas. It is a comprehensive list of formulae that are required to answer related questions in the exam.

The world of complex PM formula related to the exam is really uneasy and unsecured area of study,unless you are specialized in it.The range of this difficulty can vary from being easy to an extremely difficult one.But,usually,this ranges only from an easy to a moderate degree.Comparatively,those formulas are sometimes even different from one source of information to other.Since,you have to use every possible tool that is possibly available to you for your exam preparation,I still would recomm...

PM PrepCast & PM Formulas are the best material to kick start PM studies. I found it very helpful as primer in doing self studies. Important part of it is we can listen, revise it at our flexible time and moment. I had it handy on my mobile device. PM Formulas is the snap of all important formulas in PMBOK guide in a sheet, which is quickest thing we can refer, it help as a quick mind map tool.

Your PMP Exam Formula Study Guide has given me the confidence to answer all the questions that require calculations. It really helped me in understanding the principles and with your good examples I was able to memorize by heart the formulas.

Keep up your good works and I will surely recommend your tool to all my friends who are keen to tak...

I wasn't sure I had all the formulas on my formula cheat sheet. I found the formula materials very helpful to make sure I had all the formulas and values, which I didn't. I also found it great as a review of my understanding at that point. I am doing the PMP Certification in a month, so short cutting the time to ferret out all the formulas was very helpful. I also really like getting the emails with a formula at a time. I could verify and cement my understanding with each daily email.
