Continuing in the tradition of its bestselling predecessors, PMP
®
Exam Practice Test and Study Guide, Tenth Edition uses self
study to help readers increase their chances of passing the PMP
®
certication exam the rst time around. This tenth edition is up to
date with the 2015 Examination Content Outline (ECO) published
by the Project Management Institute (PMI
®
), which is the blueprint
for the exam.
In addition to 600 practice test questions, this edition includes a
new chapter on the ve process domains. It supplies an overview
of each knowledge area, a list of exam topics, and 40 multiple-
choice questions for each of the ten knowledge areas presented
in A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge Fifth
Edition (PMBOK
®
Guide).
As in previous editions, this edition provides a clearly written
rationale for each correct answer, along with a supporting reference
list. To help broaden your understanding of the concepts in the
answer, this edition features an expanded rationale that discusses
why a particular answer is correct, some study tips to consider,
and in many cases, an explanation as to why the other answers are
incorrect.
For each answer, the authors supply references to the appropriate
pages in the PMBOK
®
Guide and the specic ECO domain and
task. You will also nd references to one or more of the ve
process groups: Initiating, Planning, Executing, Monitoring and
Controlling, or Closing at the end of each rationale.
The book features a 200-question online practice test that simulates
the actual PMP
®
exam. It also includes the authors proprietary
prociency rating that will help you assess your strengths and
weaknesses in each process domain so you can identify the areas
where you require further study.
