Checking for Discounts Before Buying Project+ Voucher

sensitivestoicsensitivestoic Illinois, USAMember Posts: 73 ■■■□□□□□□□
Hello everyone,

I am looking to take the Project+ exam either this week or the next and was wanting to verify if there are any easily accessible discount opportunities before purchasing the voucher. I know in the past some of my study materials through Professor Messer or other sources used to give 10% off. Is there anything like that out there for Project+ to save money? Thanks!

    getcertified4less has it for a bit less.  I've used them in the past and they are great.

    Perfect, I had used them multiple times in the past. They're great. Completely forgot about them. Thank you for the reminder!

    I want to know what material are you going to use to study project plus?

    I am using two Sybex materials which overall have been well laid out with only a few typos are invalid answers for practice exams. Most research or others that I talk to indicate these are the only resources needed to pass the exam. Although I haven't passed the exam yet, so take that with a grain of salt :)
    Definitely see if your local library has them first.

    IMO, I would skip Proj+ and study for the PMP instead...why?  Just do a search on the job boards and you will probably see a noticeable difference in the number of jobs and salary.

    True, you are correct, but the project plus will help you to give a good foundation.

    Well I passed today :)

    807/900 Roughly 3 weeks of studying while working full time.

    And while I agree with your assessment from a general career perspective- most HR/professionals wouldn't give much credence to Project+- I do believe it is a quick and easy exam to build confidence with fundamentals or for anyone whose responsibilities overlap with project management but aren't the direct manager themselves. I now am excited to head towards PMI CAPM and have the framework validated to know I'm heading in the right direction.

    Unless you have a work subsidy for your studies or are looking for general validation as I was, I agree that I wouldn't pursue this exam for its isolated merits.

    Cheers,

    I attempted to study for Proj+ back a few years ago when the beta exam came out for it, I just found it extremely boring, IMO.  Congrats on your pass!

    You can see my more detailed post on study tips here. I only used the two books- one which was reading source material and the other which contained 6 mock tests. Best of luck in your preparations!

    How close the mock test to the actual exam?

    Overall I would say the practice tests were pretty similar to the actual exam. If you're doing good on them (ie, ~85% or higher) you should be good for the exam.

    Awesome, I will try to study and I will take it Jan 2020. What other certification are you looking to study?

    Looking towards PMI CAPM/PMP and Microsoft MCSE Server 2016. Just debating which side I want to lose myself in first. Good luck with your studies as we approach January!
