How to study for CAPM?
Network:1

Hi, I recently signed up for CAPM. I don't have a background in PM and I signed up because I thought it would help me manage the large projects I end up managing as part of my day job. I'm taking the PMI course but it's very superficial in its detail and appears to require the student to memorize the PMBOK guide. Could you please share any tips on how you prepared for the exam?

Thank you very much in advance!

Hello Anna.

There are already many discussions on tips and suggestions for CAPM certification. I suggest you use the Advanced Search to find discussions around CAPM.

By and large the CAPM is about ensuring that project team members can communicate and work together on a project with a common understanding and nomenclature.

I have taken both the CAPM and PMP exam, but it has been a few years since I took the CAPM exam.

I believe I focused a lot on definitions of terms versus trying to put the PMBOK into real life scenarios. I did most of my studying with flash cards, knowing which processes belonged to which process group and knowledge area. I did not study the ITTOs very well but I got lucky and didn't have many questions related to those.

Hi Markus, thank you so much! The project management basics course from PMI is very high level and seems to be focused on just memorizing the processes.
