-Will I need a PMP Prep Book for my PMP study?
If you would be asking this question in 2000s, I would definitely recommend to get a PMP book. Because, there were no online PMP materials, online PMP training options and several resources that you can access easily. However, now, it is not mandatory to get a PMP book for your PMP study.
Some PMP aspirants find reading a PMP book more convenient than following a training. Note that, even if you will use a PMP book for your PMP preparation, you cannot use it for satisfying 35 contact hours PM education requirement of PMP exam. You must attend in a 35 hours PMP training even if you will follow a PMP book. If you ask our recommendation, attending in a comprehensive PMP training is more important. Following a PMP book is up to you.
We have reviewed the available PMP books in the market and created the Best PMP Books list available in the market. You can read and pick the best PMP prep book if you will feel more confident in your PMP preparation if you follow a PMP book.
You can check our PMP Prep Book as well. It is a unique PMP book which focuses on case studies and organized like a real project.
-What is PMP coaching or PMP mentoring?
PMP certification preparation requires a detailed plan, well-structured PMP study plan and understanding the PMP exam content clearly.

You might have following queries about PMP certification
- Any questions you might have about PMP certification

-What is the passing score for PMP certification exam?
There is a big debate about this question. In many resources, you will find that PMP passing score is 61%. However, PMI never explained this ratio as a PMP pass rate. Many PMP influencers and PMP blogs mention that if you answer 61% of the PMP exam questions correctly, you will pass the PMP exam so it is something like an accepted myth.
There are 200 multiple questions in PMP certification exam. 25 of these questions are for quality control purposes and unscored. We recommend you to score at least 70% from the PMP quizzes, PMP exam simulator questions and sample PMP exams you will use. This will ensure you to pass the PMP exam in your first attempt.
