PMP Formulas should be actually called Project Management Formulas. CAPM aspirants would like to call then CAPM Formulas. However, the former title is most popular. This could be either because of the immense popularity of the PMP Exam. But let us not delve into the reasons behind the name. You may call them by whatever name you like. A great man once wrote.

  1. Praveen,

    I am interested in PMP exam and have started reading materials in preparation. PMP Formulas Guide was very useful.

  2. Hi Jesperson, Thank you for you comment. There is nothing sinister about the fair price. I am using a services that shows “fair price” by default. I cannot change it.

    Just put $0 and download.

  3. Hey Praveen
    I am unable to join the LinkedIn group as I have reached my linkedin group limit. Is there a way I can download the formula guide

    • Hi Faruq,

      Earlier we had a different mechanism for downloading the file but some people were facing problem that is why changed it to LinkedIn based mechanism. It is quiet simple. I believe 50 LinkedIn groups are too much; you can prioritize which groups you want to stay in.

      Good luck.

    • Hi Gulshan,

      As soon as you request to join the group, you will receive an automated mail from LinkedIn. This mail will have the download link.

      Good luck.

  4. Dear Mr. Praveen,
    I am already a member of that group. I couldn’t find the download link. Could you please guide?

    Thanks and keep up the good work!

    • Hi Imran,

      As soon as you request to join the group, you will receive an automated mail from LinkedIn. This mail will have the download link.

      Good luck.

  5. Hello,

    I have requested to join the group. Do you know how long it will take to get access to the group in order to get the formulas guide?



    • Hi Camile, I usually approve the linkedin requests on weekdays morning IST. But you would have received an email containing link to the formula guide as soon as your sent a request to join the group. Please check. BR.

      • Hello,

        Not sure. I check all folders everywhere in LinkedIn, gmail etc. I have not received. Is there anyway you can email it to me? By the way, I purchased the ITTO booklet and it is a game changer.



        • Hi Camile, You would have received 2 mails with formula guide link.

          Linkedin sends 2 automated mails – first mail goes out when you opt to join the group and second one goes out when the group membership is approved. Both the mails have link to the formula guide.

          Please check your spam folder. Let me know if you got the guide.
