My husband Sreenivasa Ampavati bought this prep-cast for my CAPM preparation (he is preparing for PMP as well) sometime in Jan 2010. I listened to Cornelius Fichtner prep-cast while working out, doing house hold chores, driving and even grocery shopping. I was almost addicted to it. I recently graduated from my Masters in Management and wished that my graduation course study materials and books came in this format! Before this prep cast I bought several books (of course including PMBOK guide) and browse through them several times but couldn't focus more than an hour on them even though they all pretty much revolved around the same concepts and examples.

I developed a study plan around PMBOK guide and this prep-cast in the second week of Jan. I read each section of the PMBOK guide after watching the corresponding prep-cast episode and that's all I did to pass the exam. I loved the tone and organization of the prep-cast and enjoyed Cornelius' excitement and passion towards project management.
I already started implementing the knowledge I gained on project management in my everyday life and recommend this prep-cast for all of those who wants to learn a management discipline from a conceptual and also practical perspective. I also recommend taking sample tests before taking the actual certification exam.

I passed CAPM on my first attempt! Thank You Cornelius and the team that brought this prep-cast together!

Shraddha,

The CAPM Exam will test your knowledge of the PMBOK Guide. Therefore, knowing the PMBOK Guide in detail is sufficient to pass the exam.

I don't find much information for CAPM lessons learned. Is nobody taking CAPM?. Is it enough if i memorize PMBOK and several other books for CAPM.
