The official book of PMP certification – “PMBOK Guide” with nearly 800 pages.Using a casual flip, you could find many unfamiliar terms, tools, techniques and documents which we usually do not use. Moreover, the questions of the exam are all scenario-based.The exam does not directly test the pure knowledge points in the book.
Self-study is very difficult because the PMBOK itself is very complicated and, more importantly, it is very difficult to find and learn valuable content.

So what to do?
The solution: Read along with the teacher in class.The teacher will refine the key content and organize it into a systematic knowledge, where the key content is not only the content that is often tested in the exam. It is also some of the content that PMs should pay attention to in their usual work.
After listening to the class, what should I do if I don’t fully absorb the knowledge or understand it?
The solution: Watch the live replay.Learning is also a process of thinking.You may miss some contents when you take the live courses and then you are confused and miss many important things.Then you can repeatedly watch the replay and check the gaps to fill in the gaps. Not only that, if you don’t understand something in class, you can discuss it with your classmates in the group, or ask the teacher directly in the class group.
What should I do if I feel that I have understood everything after the lesson, but I am confused when I do the questions?
The solution: Is there a generation gap between what you learn in the live class and the exam questions? The teacher sets up a 21-day study plan to solve this problem, which has audio and graphics types, as well as test questions and analysis.
Is it possible to pass the exam with a lot of questions?
The solution: First of all, how can I consolidate what I have learned and make it my own thinking? That is to brush up on the questions. Through brushing up on the questions, I can slowly verify and supplement the lack of my knowledge system and knowledge points, and at the same time to exercise my ability to read, understand, analyse and judge various messy situations.
However, low quality repetition is meaningless. You must analyse the wrong questions clearly to make a qualitative change. So make sure you get at least 4 sets of carefully selected questions right. If you have time, you can do another set of questions.
The four stages of the course are set up in a step-by-step manner and are interlinked, which has been carefully designed by me and the teachers of SPOTO since the epidemic so that students can learn more efficiently.
It is not only the first priority to get the PMP certificate, but also to master the learning method and exercise logical thinking through the four stages of study, which is beneficial for life.
*Preview the PMBOK knowledge system to prepare for the course without pressure before class and make the good absorption after class.
*Series of class activities such as class rule making, group meeting, admission notice, opening class meeting
*Cohesive learning force to fully create a quality PMP preparation learning ecosystem.
Intensive lecture phase (16 March -15 April) three days a week, 30 hours in total
30 hours of live class intensive lectures
(16 March – 15 April)
Three days a week
(5 process groups, 10 knowledge areas, role of 19 processes, 76 documents, 122 tools)
*Following case studies to consolidate knowledge points
*Project management skills, both hard and soft, ready to learn and use.
*The course places emphasis on process output based on knowledge points.
*Three kinds of logic to help train the project management mindset
(linear logic, containment logic, imaginary and real logic)
*Two hours of live learning per day, split into time slots
(Unlike other institutions where a full day of study is scheduled on weekends. It is not easy to absorb the large amount of learning in one day, so this institution rationalizes the learning time to prepare for the PMP exam in the most efficient way.)
Real-time practice with question bank
(16 March – 15 April)
* Timely review and practice on the same day of study to solidly grasp the basic knowledge points.
*Chapter-specific exercises to practice, fully understand the knowledge points and review with any miss.
