Project Management Formulas & PMI Certification Exams
PMP Formulas should be actually called Project Management Formulas, since they are not specific to a particular test. In fact, CAPM aspirants would like to call then CAPM Formulas. However, the former title is most popular. This could be 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.
What’s in a name?
How Can You Download CAPM / PMP Formulas Free Of Cost?
I have seen my fair share of cheat sheets and formula guides. I would be lying, if I said I have seen all of them that are out there. There are tens of such guides available on the web. However, I can certainly claim to have seen the more popular ones. Most of these guides are sketchy and do not cover many formulas. So, I prepared a new one to share it with the certification aspirants.
