Q How long does it take to prepare for the PMP exam?
A. Generally it takes 2.5 to 3 months to prepare for PMP®. In terms of hours it takes 180 to 200 hours in total to prepare for this certification.
Mostly PMP aspirants start the prepration with the mind set that they can still cover the entire book in 2 weeks time as they could do it in their student life. It is important to understand that both energy and caliber is much less now. So first analyze your actual caliber in few days of your preparation. Then make a realistic study plan for yourself.
iZenbridge helped 5000+ professionals in their PMP journey with the help of a customized study plan.
Q. What are the eligibility criteria for PMP® certification?
A. In order to apply to take the PMP exam you are required to have attained a certain amount of experience leading and directing projects: 60 months (7,500 hours) of experience in case of 3 year diploma, and 36 months (4,500 hours) of experience in case of 4 years’ bachelor’s degree.
So to answer the question how to calculate these 4500 or 7500 hours, the simple answer is 60 months and 36 months respectively. It is the total duration in terms of months which counts so number of hours per day or per week is out of question now.
As per page 6 of PMI® Handbook
|Project management experience during which at least 7,500 or 4,500 hours were spent leading and directing the project.|
“Leading and directing the project as identified with the tasks, knowledge, and skills specific in the Project Management Professional Examination Content Outline.”
Q. What is 35 contact hours of project management education?
A. In simple words, Contact Hours are hours earned before becoming PMP® certified. You need to undergo 35 hours of project management education which covers content as per Project Management Professionals Content Outline. A program which includes Project Management Body of Knowledge as defined by PMI satisfies that need of these contact hours. And to earn them, either you can attend in-person education or pursue online learning system.
I recommend attending programs of PMI Registered Education Providers. REP programs are the most popular way as it ensures that program is pre-approved for 35 contact hours by the PMI. Our PMP Online Program (www.izenbridge.com/pmp/online-course/) is one of them.
Q. How to earn 35 Contact hours of project management education online?
A. You can earn 35 contact hours online but to my surprise, many professionals are not even aware of this option. I believe in today’s business environment that online programs provide better facilitation at support for PMP exam than classroom sessions. In many of my interactions with professionals, I found that most of us live in the world of work and life challenges. Thus, there is flexibility in the learning timings.
Now let’s talk about steps of earning contact hours by the online education system. The steps are simple. You can start exploring the content just after enrolling to our PMP program (www.izenbridge.com/pmp/online-course/). You can get your PDU certificate within three business days of enrolment. All you need to take a small assessment after completion of the first pass of the program. The good news is; you do not need to track hours you spend on learning it. Because PMI has their way of calculating the contact hours when they approve the program for 35 contact hours. For PMI, these contact hours are calculated based on how much time an average learner will take to finish the program. You get the PDU certificate in PDF format.
Q. How is the term leading and directing different from managing a project.
A. If your role in the current organization involves tasks like understanding, time management, risk management, quality control, leadership, budgeting, communication, documentation and integration. And you are proficient in handling projects and team related issues then you are leading/directing the project. The idea is not to concentrate on the title or designation but on your responsibilities.

Success story of Vijay – Cleared PMP in second attempt
Vijay was completely depressed after failing in PMP® in first attempt. He was was not able to make in first attempt due to inappropriate study approach and year-end hectic schedules in Office.
Our PMP experts reveiwed his exam result and created a customized study plan for him. As per Vijay “After joining iZenBridge I got confidence with the subject part. Thanks a lot to Saket for excellent explanations of each and every topic. The explanation of ITTOs (Inputs, Tools & Techniques, and Outputs) in each Knowledge Area by Saket was sufficient for the exam. He insisted to understand the intent of ITTOs rather than remembering. “
He followed our cusomized study plan and passed his PMP® exam on 19th July 2018 in second Attempt.
Exam Analysis by Vijay
- 70% of the questions are on communications, Risk, procurement, Stakeholders.
- 30% were on Remaining Knowledge areas.
- No questions on Human Resource theories, resource optimization
- Very few direct ITTO situational question on Risk management, numerical questions ( Critical Path Method , Beta distribution and EVM for EAC calculation)
- Most of the questions were theoretical situational questions.
- Studied 3-4 hours daily maximum
- Only PMBOK® Guide Sixth edition is my suggestion – i read for 2 times and 2nd time is only important points marked in PMBOK® Guide in first reading.
- Read Rita for Resources, Communication, and Procurement only as it has much better explanations than PMBOK® Guide.
- Exam was more or less like chapter end questions in the iZenBridge online course and I have gone through them 2 times for all knowledge areas.
Thanks a LOT once again for the Saket AND IZEN Bridge PMP training team
Success story of Rajeshwari – Cleared PMP in first attempt 60 days
Clearing PMP was no less than winning an Olympic medal, says Rajeshwari who cleared her PMP in April 2018. She cleared her PMP certification with 3 above targets and two targets. The joy of seeing a congratulatory message on your screen after submitting the marathon 4 hours exam is a moment to cherish for life.
According to her PMP® Exam was not easy, she was preparing for past six months, managed to study for 2 hours and sometime 7 hours a day. If you don’t study every day, you will forget everything. Mugging up won’t work, understand the concepts, reiterates Rajeshwari.
Main books she used were PMBOK® Guide Sixth edition, and few topics from Rita. She attempted several mock exams, iZenbridge, Oliver Lehman, Rita’s chapter end questions. She didn’t memorize the glossary; she created notes of the definitions, instead. In PMP® exam 75% were situational questions.
Rajeshwari quoted “PMP videos by Saket Bansal were excellent. He explains everything in so simple terms that I was imagining his face explaining the concepts – in my exam when I was getting questions( with topics EAC, Different types of procurement contracts, Risk Response) related to his youtube videos. I am so much inspired by him that I wish I could have done PMP earlier and could have taught PMP concepts to others and helped them. I feel he is born to teach PMP® concepts.”
