Project Management Formulas 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.

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 group members on LinkedIn. But due to recent changes in the platform, there is no option to share it through LinkedIn.

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

There are no charges for joining LinkedIn or for becoming 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!

You can download the pdf sheet by joining my PMP exam prep FB group.

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 contact me.

Good luck.

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

    Praveen Malik, PMP Reply

    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.

    Good luck.

Camile Walls Reply

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?

Best,

Camile

    Praveen Malik, PMP Reply

    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.

      Camile Walls Reply

      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.

      Best,

      Camile

        Praveen Malik, PMP Reply

        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.

        BR.

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.
