online class for PMP certification
I'm looking for a good cost effective online course to prepare myself for PMP certification. Any recommendations?
Sort By:
I took the "PMP Certification Bootcamp" from PMTraining.com and have recommended it to others. Looks like it's about $350 for the online course. I passed the exam so it's either a good program or I'm lucky... maybe both?

NOTE: The exam is changing in 2021, so if you're going to do this... start now and take the exam before year-end!

Hi Troy. Thanks for your response. Wondering how long you spent preparing for the exam in total including the class. Looks like I would have to move pretty fast to get it done before the end of this year.

Hi Jeffrey,

Enjoy
Check on Udemy there are cost effective great classes for Joseph Phillips.
So many options will pop up if you search... careful choose base in your needs
I would suggest a combination of the Joseph Phillips PMP Prep Seminar on Udemy and Rita's PMP book. Also, have a copy of the PMBOK so you can reference and read up on things that you feel you need more clarification on. Then find a bunch of practice exams online and keep practicing. You can pay some or find some free ones, it's just about getting in the mindset.

Tamara,
Thanks very much for your response. I was skeptical of UDEMY simply because it is super inexpensive. It is only $9.95, so I figured it might not be so good. I've seen other online classes that cost $600 or more! Did you take this course for yourself and can vouch for it?

Thanks,

Jeff
there are so many options, but I think iZENBRIDGE is also good, which help me a lot in passing the PMP exam.

Assuming no distractions during this predominately WFH/ school-from-home environment if there are others in your household, treat it like work. Knock out the online training in 5 days while reading along in the PMBOK. Take practice tests (as many as you can), review your weaker areas indicated by your test results, memorize the quick reference guide/ study guides for the next ~5 days. So, TWO WEEKS total if you really focus and dedicate the time. Please don't skip on the practice tests. Getting used to how the questions and answers are presented (i.e., lots of situational formats) will drive ~50% of your success.
