Student Profile: Dale Chapman, PMP

dalepic5I've been a Project Manager for 15 years. Prior to studying for the PMP, I only knew what I knew by 'doing' and learning PM best practices from my mentor, John Wells. I did Google 'everything.'

I've been an Instructor at Arizona State University since 2003. I teach Project Management and Technical Writing courses. I'm also an IT Project Manager. I needed my PMP to be fully credible in both arenas, and the PM jobs in Atlanta were suddenly including an additional requirement, PMP certification. I have always enjoyed the process of learning, and my greatest weapon to slay the test was the PM Exam Simulator, as well as others who were studying and who were so supportive. The first 6 months of taking the PM Exam Simulator quizzes, I was earning 40 to 60%. When I started getting 70's, I took the exam but failed it. Not to worry. It's worth failing it in order to know what to expect the second time you sit for 4 hours! The last 3 months of taking quizzes, I was consistently in the 80+% range, I knew I could pass the test.
