CAPM / PMP Formulas Cheat Sheet Based on PMBOK Guide 6th Edition

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?

A few years ago, I started a LinkedIn Group For The Exam Prep. I created this group to help the aspirants in cracking the certification tests. I moderate this group and answer all certification related questions.

Earlier, the formulas sheet was available for downloading to all the LinkedIn group members. But due to recent changes in the platform, there is no option to share it through LinkedIn.

You can still join the Linkedin group for new exam related content like quizzes, infographics, and tips.

There are no charges for joining LinkedIn or for becoming a group member. It will not cost you any money.

Go ahead! Join the group. It is absolutely free.

Final Thoughts

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.

Here it is at absolutely no cost to you!

Over To You

I am confident that the cheat sheet will help you in attaining the certification. However, if you feel that it can be improved further then don’t hesitate to put in a comment below.

Otherwise, what is your opinion about PMP mathematics questions? Are they easy to solve? Do you think you can pass the exam without studying the mathematical portions of the PMBOK Guide?

Good luck.

    2. 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

      1. 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.

        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.

          Thanks and keep up the good work!

            Good luck.

        3. 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?



          1. 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.

            1. 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.



              1. 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.


            2. Hi Praveen,

              Thank you, I have registered in the facebook group, hopefully, once they accept my membership, i should be receiving the formula handbook.

              One of the reasons I have not taken PMP exam even after undergoing two classes of PMP Training, plus 2 trainings provided by our organization,was the formulas and application of formulas.

              Hopefully, I am going to depend on this formula handbook and going to come out of the formulaphobia and appear in the PMP exam.

            3. Dear Praveen,
              Thank you for the emails, cheat sheets and very helpful tips.
              I have a quick question. There are at lead 4 EAC formulas for different scenarios. However, when reading sample test questions, it is sometimes hard to know which of the EAC formulas is required in the scenario described.
              Can you shed some light on this, please?
              Thank you.
