Sort By:

I used Belinda Fremouw's book and was very satisfied with the amonut of useful information. I had tried another book before and it felt like I was not getting everything I needed.

There's a few RMP's that will surely respond to this question Smit :-)

Read the Risk & Stakeholder Management chapters of the PMBOK Guide as well as PMI's Risk Management Standard. You might also want to peruse the archives of Dr. David Hillson's monthly blogs (going back at least a decade!) on the subject...


Please refer to my blog. I mentioned in details everything I did through my RMP Journey.

In summary, you have to study: Risk, Stakeholder & Communication KA’s from PMBOK and the Standard Practice for Risk Management but the exam will test you beyond any text book.

Carl Pritchard offers a course to prepare for the PMI-RMP Exam as well.

"Project Management, Denial, and the Death Zone: Lessons from Everest and Antarctica" is a great book for real world type examples of risk management.

"Rizvi's Risk Management Professional (PMI-RMP) Exam Prep Guide" is what I used to pass the actual exam.
