Introduction to PMP
— Project Management Professional (PMP) is a credential offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI). There are currently 583,806 active PMP certified individuals and 270 chartered chapters across 193 countries worldwide.
The PMP exam is based on the PMP Examination Specification,which describes tasks out of five performance domains:
- Initiating the project (13%)
- Planning the project (24%)
- Executing the project (30%)
- Monitoring and controlling the project (25%)
- Closing the project (8%)
The exam consists of 200 multiple choice questions written against this specification. Twenty-five of the 200 questions on the exam are “sample” questions used to fine-tune the degree of difficulty and precision of the exam and as such are not counted for or against a test taker. These questions are placed randomly throughout the exam. The test taker is only graded on their proficiency on 175 questions. The numbers in parentheses describe the percentage of questions for each domain.
