The message you found was from 2008 when The PM StudyCoach was indeed just a "simple excel based spreadsheet". In the meantime it is a full-featured, recorded coaching course that guides you through the process.
I saw an e-mail/group message from Cornelius Fichtner (see below) refering to a simple excel based PMP Study Plan. This is just what I was looking for to help plan and track my daily progress.
However, when I go to the link he suggested (
) it lists paid coaching sessions. In his message it indicates I should have access to "a user friendly MS Excel based tool." Could anyone direct me to this?
