Are looking for a PMP Formulas Cheat Sheet or a small Pocket Guide?

You are at the right place. You can download a pdf guide having 43 formulas and 53 abbreviations.

PMP Formulas should be actually called Project Management Formulas. However, former title is more popular than the latter. I have rarely seen anyone using the term “Project Management Formulas”. This could be either because of the reputation of the PMP Exam or the popularity of PMBOK® Guide. But let us not delve into the reasons behind the name. You may call them by whatever name you like.

  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.
