This might seem like a silly question, but has anyone seen or created a MS Project Plan for the PMP Prep Cast series? If not, I plan to create my own, would anyone be interested?

I laid out my entire study plan in Gantt Project. It helped hold me to a set time-line.

It's a good way to get practice using a powerful tool, however in my case, I just used a printable calendar. I'm sure many would like what you produce.
I also used a mind map and found many others have done that too.

I used a calendar as well and I mind mapped the process as as used it for a study tool....
What ever works, I say!

Since I'm very comfortable with MS Project (and because my time was limited for studying and I needed to have a plan to not totally lose control), I did indeed create a plan based on how I wanted to approach it. "It" meaninging everything from starting with the PrepCast, getting the PDUs, applying, everything.

It helped calm me down and allowed me to set goals and focus.
So, if like me you're inclined this way, I'd encourage you to do it....

Robert,

I'd be interested in receiving a copy if you decide to create a MS PP plan. We can share it as part of our "PMP Study Plan" article www.project-management-prepcast.com/pmp-study-plan where we included a number of templates for students to use.
Until Next Time,

Robert,

I actually mapped mine out entirely in MS Excel, but Project would work too. There are lots of Gantt Chart templates for Excel out there that could be helpful.
