The Complete PMI PMP Certification Guide is written in response to the growing number of PMP aspirants who are writing to me enquiring about the details of the PMP certification process. Although PMI has provided details of the PMP Certification requirements, many PMI PMP aspirants (including me) need to find additional assistance in order to fully understand the PMP certification process as well as how to "correctly" accomplish all the requirements, e.g. filling the PMP application form, obtaining the 35 contact hours, selecting the best PMP study guide, getting and claiming PMP PDU, etc.

It is my hope that this PMP Exam Guide would be able to assist PMP aspirants to streamline their PMP journey!
