    Just putting this info out there for WGU students.

    Resources > Library> lynda videos.

    1. Type project management in search and choose the project management fundamentals result.
    2. On the project management fundamentals video there should be a course featured in playlists on bottom of video.
    3. Click on subscribe to playlist for learn project management.

    ta-dah, a video reference for the course material (does not represent 100% comptia project+ material, but it does help).

    I used the Sybex guide to study for it. Was only 300~ pages and is fairly well written. Can definitely be read in only a few sessions. Also, if you want, I made really detailed notes while I was reading through the book. I can send them to you if you think it might help.

    And as far as the test itself, memorize all the formulas. Practice just writing them all down on a sheet of paper over and over until it's second nature. Also, know a little bit about what each variable in the formulas mean. Write them down when you first start the exam and those questions are now basically freebies (And there's quite a few of them).

    Edit: Just realized how old this post is lol

    It's an old thread, but still relevant. I had the same conversation as others with my course mentor at WGU - the ucertify is really out there in terms of questions. I gave her examples of questions with answers that the phrases didn't appear in either textbook, anywhere. It's a terrible preparation tool and for a while there I was really worried about failing this exam.

    Now I'm just going to bang my head against the questions until I get the 80+ they want (did it really have to be 100 question? REALLY?) and then use the official book's CD as my study material. Of all the courses I've taken so far, this one is the most overloaded of materials and the least focused on what will actually get you through the exam. Awful

    Yeah pretty much it was much more interesting and a much easier exam to pass in my opinion. It's not as definition and vocabulary focused .

    Agreed. It took my about a week of studying for that cert and I passed no problem. Useless cert, but at least it was IT related.
