      • You can of course take the exam as many times as you like.
      • The final exam is 75 questions, with a time limit of 1.5 hours, which is the same average time per question as allowed for on the 4-hour 200 question PMP certification exam, so you can get an idea of your pacing as you go through the questions. Those of you who have taken other certification exams, such as CISSP, are familiar with the time pressure imposed with these types of exams.
      • The answer key is available via the second link below.

012: Then take this link to the {Orientation Room}

Keep this Guide open and available for reference during orientation.

_________________________________________

Orientation will address all of the following activities:

02: Start of course

021: Have on hand:

  • a deck of 500 index cards: blank on side, lined on the other. You will use these for both your readings/lessons notes as well as for your glossary flashcards.

022: Download the listed items once at the beginning of the course before the first class session

023: Print the case study guidelines and put in your course binder.

03: Start of each week (Mondays)

031: Open the Expanding Security calendar and click on the Monday PM: syllabus for the current week

  • Review that week’s syllabus to familiarize yourself with that week’s agenda
  • Be aware that Day 05 does not mean that day’s module is PM05, it might be PM17, so always be sure to see which readings, quizzes and cases are assigned to any particular class day; and that means look at the syllabus before assuming any sequential order of readings, etc

04: Daily Process: After Last Class But Before the Next Class

041: Download (from the syllabus for the current day’s class)

  • Class Readings  {These are excepts of the daily class subject matter from your legal copy of PMBOK5; download is optional}
  • Case Scenarios {These are your case homework assignments, which need to be prepared PRIOR to class; these cases involve your preparation of certain documents for display during class, usually from templates provided in the download. Save your deliverable in PDF format and email to pmp.manager@expandingsecurity.com}
  • Subject Matter Glossary {each daily class has its own Glossary for your review and notecards}

042: Do the assigned reading

It is important that you read each assignment completely. Class lessons attempt to address the most critical aspects of each reading but the PMBOK contains so much information it is not possible to touch on every paragraph, so it is up to you to augment class lessons with the peripheral concepts and explanations from the readings.

043: Prepare your reading note cards

Make note cards as you read to help your comprehension as you read and during your reviews of the readings over the life of the course. You can augment your notes deck with additional notes you take during class lessons.

044: Take the recorded quiz

Steps:

  • Click the {PMQnn} link on the syllabus to open the recorded quiz
  • Take the quiz, review your results, then
  • log your score to your Quiz score sheet
  • After each last weekly class, email your score sheet to your instructor at: pmp.manager@expandingsecurity.com
  • These actions are class requirements

You can actually go back and retake the Quiz as many times as you like throughout the course, and it is recommended that you do so; you should see your comprehension of the questions and correct answers improve as you gain more insight into PMBOPK and its process integration characteristics.

045: Listen to the recorded quiz synopsis

  • Click the {PMAnn} link on the syllabus to open the recorder quiz synopsis
  • You can click the progress bar to move to different questions

046: Prepare your case study assignment deliverable

  • Case scenarios and necessary supporting documents are available from the ‘Case Scenario – pull down from Pogoplug {PMCnn}’ weekly syllabus link, where you are redirected to Pogoplug; open the target folder and download your case materials
  • Prepare the requested case deliverables in PDF format prior to the start of this case’s class
  • Email your deliverable to php.manager@expandingsecurity.com.

047: Practice your glossary flashcards

048: Review your prior class notes

05: Daily Process: At class time

051: Arrive at class at least 5 minutes prior to class start.

  • This is important to allow time to check your audio and microphone setup

052: You must accept the welcome screen meeting agreement to be allowed classroom entry

053: Quiz Review

  • At your instructors discretion, there may be up to 5 minutes allowed for Quiz question review
  • If review is open, you will be asked to vote for no more than three questions to review; the top three hits will be discussed in more detail
  • If you have Quiz questions you want to discuss but your instructor has opted to not do Quiz review during that class (perhaps the lesson subject matter needs extended lecture time), then you can online stay after class to review your concerns with the instructor, or arrange for an alternate consultation.

054: Case Study Breakouts

  • At class case review time, we will have a joint case review discussion you, or, at the instructors discretion, one and one or more students may be assigned to a breakout room where you can each display and discuss your case scenario results (in PDF only).
  • Breakout room have audio enabled for more efficient communications while in the breakout room.
  • Your instructor will be in and out of your breakout room to monitor progress, answer questions and provide guidance.
  • You will have a maximum time of 5 minutes in the breakout room where your objective is to discuss, compare and contrast your and your partners case results and to learn from each other; your host will alert you to the end of the breakout session.
  • You should at that time each think of one takeaway of whatever insight, epiphany or best practice you might take with you to your professional project management work.
  • Be prepared then to enter a short one-liner takeaway statement into the Chat once you are returned to the main room; where we will all quickly share those insights.

055: Class Lesson

  • During the instructor’s lesson, you may Chat comments and questions
  • Your instructor may enable microphones during the lesson as either unrestricted, or by using the Raise Your Hand classroom feature.

056: Special Exercises

  • After the lesson, you will be engaged in either a PMPSpeak or ITTOs exercise.
  • PMPSpeak exercises are intended to help you take common management talk and relate it to the various project management process groups. This is an especially important exercise if you are intending to sit for the PMP exam, since some exam questions may be conveyed in plain language requiring you identify which project management functions are implied by those statements.
  • ITTOs are exercises designed to help you determine, for a particular process, which process inputs and which process outputs are related to which set of process tools and techniques. Again, there may be a questions on the PMP exam that assess your knowledge of those relationships.
  • No more than 3 minutes are needed to complete either exercise, after which we will briefly discuss results.

057: Case Study Assignment

  • The case scenario for your discussion during next class will be explained but the instructor.
  • You will be required to make assumptions about much of the case data provided in these case scenarios; and that’s OK, since real life is much like that.
  • So given that stance, your next day’s case scenario will be presented by the instructor without benefit of Q&A.

06: If you missed class or need a class review

061: Class Sessions are recorded

  • All class sessions are recorded and each class day’s syllabus includes a link to that class’s recording, which will be available within 24 hours after each class.

07: End of Week

071: Student Evaluation

  • At the end of each class week, students will be asked to provide their evaluation of that week’s classes in several areas. You are asked to complete this evaluation so we can help you better and improve our class delivery.
  • It should take no longer than 1 minute to log your evaluation for the week.
072: Email in your Excel Scoresheet with your week’s quiz results
_____________________________________________

09: If technical problems arise before or during class

Should connectivity to the classroom be unavailable prior to class, or interrupted during class, here is the plan to re-enable class delivery:

  • try twice to reconnect to the classroom; if that fails, look for an email from the instructor with a situation notice along with
  • a link to an alternate interactive method, or
  • an attached PowerPoint file and a dial-up conference call number
