    If I remember correctly this one is heavily tested on both the PMP and P+, so it's probably a good thing to know.

    Also you might want to think about this implication of this formula (which I think you have). What it is saying is that as more people are added to/involved in a project, the communication channels increase dramatically. The more communications channels the more difficult it is to get stuff done.

    It's why meetings suck, and why they suck more when more people are involved.

    That's probably why we have the saying "Too many Chiefs, not enough Indians..." That really makes sense.

    Thanks for that. It was just amazing that out of all the formulas, that one clicked the best for me. The others ones took more time to memorize.

    Those last two had me hunting through both the Kindle and Internet...the only S(X) I'm aware of is scheduled variance and that's SV= EV - PV (earned value - budgeted cost). If you could clarify, it would be most appreciated. uCertify actually helped me with cost variance and cost performance index.

    And BTW, I do agree with the original sentiment of this thread. PMP and Project+ are based on the same material, which is painfully boring.

    When I do pass...I plan on being a PMP in the near future. All I'll need is a Caddy, fur coat, cane and perhaps a feathered fedora.

    Oh wait...

    Default Thought you were crazy

    When I first read this I thought you guys were just whining its less than 300 pages I can do that standiing on my head.

    Halfway through the first chapter I was running for text-to-speech. No wonder projects gets so messed up. LOL It seems like they just talk in circles in this book. Now all they need to do is throw 3 letter names in for companies on the test and I will be losing my mind when I sit this.

    THANK YOU for the text to speech suggestion. Gonna sit this and put it behind me ASAP.

    It's true. That book could have been written in under 100 pages. The author decided that it needed more words.

    You may want to use the female voice, less Stephen Hawking-ish. (I also switch up depending on if a guy or lady wrote it.) Also, you may also want to lower the reading speed than less than the default. Default is too quick for me. You still want to read along with it, as TTS is not exactly perfect...but for Project+, it did do it's job.


    Well guys, tomorrow is D-Day. I'm calling it a night....tomorrow I'm gonna get up bright and early and make sure my Kindle and glossary print outs are with me. Should evilness befall me (fail), I'll know why...but I'm not gonna dwell too much on that. I will take the exam between the 26th and 29th if I fail and I will come back with a win then. But hopefully, we need not have to.

    Good luck dude. Keep us updated. I'm curious on the difficulty comparison with uCertify
