About Christopher Scordo

Christopher Scordo (PMP, ITIL) is the Founder and Managing Director of PMTraining. He has authored many best-selling exam study guides. He started his journey by publishing PMP exam prep book. It is a very popular book with PMP aspirants.

PMP Exam Prep Questions And Answers

The book titled PMP Exam Prep Questions, Answers, & Explanations created the foundation for PMTraining. It is authored by Christopher Scordo. It has about 1000 PMP exam sample questions. Before the online simulators become famous, it was considered as the Gold standard for PMP exam prep. It is still a bestselling PMP book on Amazon.

Till January 2016, PMI used to provide access to digital copies of few books. These books were free for the PMI members. Christopher Scordo’s book was among them. Unfortunately PMI has taken off this facility.

Today, PMTraining offers two products for practicing mock tests – book and simulator. The simulators is extremely popular among exam aspirants. It is priced competitively and has all the features that an online test should have.
