I understand there are 50 formulas one needs to be familiar with to pass the PMP exam.
I have been studying for weeks now and I have only found about 20 formulas. Anybody know where I can find the other 30 formulas?

Olurotimi:

The Prepcast had a formula sheet associated with the Prepcast product. It's now associated with the upper tier of the product. The only thing I was unfamiliar with was calculating the number of "communication channels" and the earned value stuff.

Thanks for the quick reply Harry.
I guess I'll have to work with the formulas I am familiar with and keep my finger crossed.

Olurotimi,

Do not get wrapped up in math questions. My exam (2019) had exactly two questions that required math, both were Earned Value questions that required only basic math.

Olurotimi,

I agree with Harry. If anything, become familiar with the earned value formulas in the PMBOK Guide 6th edition, and know how to interpret the results. Chances are you won't get a question that asks to calculate something, but rather the question will assess your behaviour given a scenario in which a certain earned value metric is at a certain number. Hope this makes sense.

All the best in your studies, and I'm sure you will do great!

Cheers,
