2011 PMIH President
Fellow Members,
Thank you for taking a moment to read this message. I am privileged
to lead the Project Management Institute of Houston organization for
2011. I look forward to serving you and continuing to strengthen this
association.
I have requested one of our members to produce a strategy regarding
PMI Houston’s presence in electronic social media areas – facebook,
twitter, youtube & linkedin. This will help us present a more unified
look and feel to the web.
I am also investigating expanding our face to face opportunities. Currently we have five to six structured meetings around Houston. I am
looking to build more unstructured, less formal opportunities for us to
meet and get to know each other. Houston already has a model we can
adopt. I am thinking of a well known online networking group that gets
together at various spots across Houston.
...Continued on page 5.
As a chapter we have earned award winning recognition from PMI
National for the last 10 years. Recently we were recognized as being
one of the top chapters in the country for our leadership, planning,
operations and membership services.
This year the board has dedicated themselves to being the best in all
categories. Therefore the mind-set we will be representing is
“Pursuing Excellence in Project Management.”
The benefits for the membership are that you will experience the organization striving to make improvements in all areas. This is where
we are going to need your participation. For example, one of the
tools we will be using is surveying our members. Finding out where
you stand; where you see our strengths and what improvements you
would like us to follow.

The Secret Of Creating Your PMP Exam Brain
Dump Sheet
By Cornelius Fichtner, PMP
There’s no better catalyst for self realization than taking the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam. I’m kidding you, of course, but
there is some truth in that the PMP exam day will illuminate that “you
don’t know what you don’t know.”
The PMP Exam is a ‘closed’ book exam. That means the only reference
material you are allowed to carry into the testing facility has to be contained in your brain. But during your exam, your brain is going to be very
busy interpreting the exam questions and trying to apply all of the knowledge, skills and principles you’ve accumulated in your studies and work
experience.
If you haven’t already, you should go for a visit to the local testing facility where you’ll take your exam and confirm what to expect. Most likely,
on your exam day, the exam monitor will check you into the testing facility, hand you six or so sheets of scratch paper and two pencils, then show
you to your seat and confirm that your PC is working. Then you’ll have
about 15 minutes to go through a tutorial that really only takes about 5
minutes to do. Then you begin your exam.
During the test, recalling what you do know can be daunting. Quite
frankly, some of your ability to access that knowledge is going to seem
misplaced amongst your grey cells. So how do you create the best opportunities to pass the PMP Exam that day? You can use the 10 minutes you
don’t need from the tutorial time to do a Brain Dump!
PMI Houston Chapter, Inc.
What is a Brain Dump?
A Brain Dump is a technique used by many students on closed
book exams to create their personal mini reference table. Brain
dumps are abbreviations of components and concepts, which you
have committed to memory and are then spilled out on to sheets
of paper prior to the exam for reference.
Brain dumps contain just enough key concepts, theories, formulas and content, which will jog your memory. By having the information on your Brain Dump, your mind can focus on the question at hand instead of trying to remember the formula needed to
answer the question. It helps you to be in the the right frame of
mind specific to each question.
What goes into a Brain Dump?
Brain Dumps are only as good as the quality and quantity of information that you can spill out on the piece(s) of paper just before you begin your PMP Exam. They contain the formulas, theory, concepts and PMP-isms that you might otherwise forget for
a moment at the very moment when you need it most.
...… continued on next page
2011 January, p. 10
… continued from p. 10
Here is what you can generally find as part of a PMP Exam Brain
Dump:
So What *IS* The Secret of Creating My PMP Exam Brain Dump
Sheet?
- Table 3-1 of the PMBOK® Guide 4th Edition
- Formulas, such as earned value, PERT, communication channels,
procurement, probability, project selection and depreciation
- Values, such as 1, 2 and 3 sigma and estimate ranges
- Acronyms, such as BAC or TCPI
- Powers of a project manager
- Conflict resolution (best to worst)
- Sources of conflict (order of priority)
- Herzberg’s motivators
- Project closing check list
Creating and studying your very own, personalized PMP Exam Brain
Dump Sheet is a means to an end in itself. It all begins with creating the
content that goes into it by getting to know your weak areas as you prepare for the exam. Then you memorize, you dump and you repeat. Pretty
soon what seemed too complex to remember is at the forefront of your
knowledge.
And of course: you must include all the items that you personally
have trouble remembering during your studies and that you feel
need to go onto your sheet. The list above or using a Brain Dump
that someone else created can be a good start but you really need
to customize it to your needs. Don’t study what others are having
trouble remembering. Instead, include what gives you the hiccups.
Last but not least, your PMP Exam Brain Dump is a great tool not only
to help you bring your reference material into the testing facility, but
also providing stress relief knowing it’s there as you encounter questions that require it. You’ll help yourself to learn the material as you
study for your PMP Exam and give yourself an important edge in passing.
How do I Study a Brain Dump?
Brain Dumps are pure memorization. As part of your exam preparation, exercises and studying, go ahead and practice committing
the content of your Brain Dump to memory and then writing them
out onto a blank sheet of paper on a daily basis.
So the secret is that you will accelerate your studies and knowledge simply by going through the motions of creating, studying and knowing
what’s on your personalized Brain Dump.
About the author: Cornelius Fichtner, PMP is a noted PMP expert.
He has helped over 12,000 students prepare for the PMP Exam with
The Project Management PrepCast at http://www.pm-prepcast.com
and The PMP Exam Simulator at http://www.pm-examsimulator.com
Every morning, practice your brain dump until you’re satisfied
with your progress. By the end of the first week you should be able
to write out your brain dump in its entirety on the first go.
Then continue dumping it on a regular basis, going back to the
daily routine in the two weeks leading up to your exam.

5 Reasons NOT to Take a PMP Exam Boot Camp
By Cornelius Fichtner, PMP
Often touted as “ideal targeted training” for the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam, many
people find PMP boot camps are an attractive option
for exam preparation.
While boot camps are designed to deliver noticeable
results with a high-output of effort in a short period
of time, the drawbacks of choosing this path for
exam preparation often outweigh the benefits.
Bootcamps may work for some because the instructors are usually highly
qualified with master’s degrees, prior training, and years of industry experience. Most also offer a pass guarantee and will assume financial risk
if you fail. They may offer to pay for your exam re-take or provide custom coaching and feedback.
Quoting high first- and second-time pass rates, boot camp programs
claim to be the ideal package for exam preparation, often including the
PMBOK® Guide, a prep guide, test-style prep questions, and meals during classroom sessions. If you would like a surefire way to pass the PMP
exam in a short period of time, then a boot camp may be just what you’re
looking for.
However, PMP boot camps definitely have their share of drawbacks and
these drawbacks are the reason why I never recommend a bootcamp to
any of my students.
PMI Houston Chapter, Inc.
Reason #1: Boot camps are expensive.
Designed to be the ideal all-in-one exam preparation experience,
the sheer cost of boot camps make them less-than-ideal for those
of us on a budget. An intensive 4-day course can cost you several thousand dollars, depending on your location, whether it’s a
busy time of year, and the availability of included amenities.
While the up-front cost may seem astronomical, check to see if it
includes the actual PMP exam fee and comes backed with a pass
guarantee. Most boot camp companies will offer to cover tailored tutoring and re-take exam fees if you fail the first or second
time. If you fail a third time, they may even offer to let you take
the entire 4-day course over again for free.
But all of this comes at a cost. Essentially a pay-to-pass program,
boot camps pump a large amount of students through a shortterm, high-yield course. Boot camps may only be a viable option
if time is more valuable to you than money.
Reason #2: Boot camps are inconvenient.
Unless you live in a large urban area where a course is offered,
the 4-day boot camp will usually require travel and hotel accommodations. For most project managers with jobs and families,
dropping their responsibilities for four days is not only inconvenient, it’s impossible. Work and life does not stand still (or even
slow down!) just because you have an important exam to pass.
Most project managers require – and work best with – a study
schedule that fits with their lifestyle instead of interrupting it.
...… continued on next page
2011 January, p. 12
...... 5 Reasons… continued from p. 12
Reason #3: Boot camps focus on memorization.
As you are already aware, the PMP exam is based on concepts from
the PMBOK® Guide. Specific principles include communication,
cost management, human resources, integration, procurement, quality, risk, scope, and time management. The material is broad and the
data is often in-depth. So, how do boot camps ensure you thoroughly
master and understand these concepts in a mere four days? They
don’t.
There is absolutely not enough time in four days to extensively
cover concepts and in-depth data. Instead, boot camps focus on rote
memorization of high-yield material. While they may be able to
guarantee a “first-time pass”, boot camps cannot and do not offer an
education that will help you with project management beyond the
exam.
Reason #4: Boot camps have limited schedules and
openings.
As noted above, the inconvenience of boot camps is often rooted in
their location and need for travel away from home. On top of that,
many boot camps have limited space and are only able to offer sessions at certain times of the year. If you thought taking time off from
work and your family would be difficult, try doing it around their
schedule instead of your own. The only available times may be during a busy work crunch or stressful family situation. At best, this
may be inconvenient. Often, it is impossible. Project managers with
home and work commitments will usually have better success with a
study schedule or workshop that still allows them to fulfill their
home and work responsibilities.
PMI Houston Chapter, Inc.
Reason #5: Boot camp training focuses on passing the
exam instead of teaching concepts.
The material on the PMP exam is broad and in-depth. If you are not
already familiar with concepts covered in the PMBOK® Guide, boot
camps will not be able to help you in a mere four days. As noted in
their “guarantee”, boot camps only promise to help you pass the exam.
They do not offer an education that will guide or assist you through
your career.
One of the secret ingredients to doing well on the PMP exam is understanding of project management principles, both individually and how
they work together. Instead of focusing on competency, boot camps
rely on rote memorization of high-yield material. While this may result in a high first-time pass rate, it does not ensure that the project
manager has learned any skills or gained experience that will help
their career beyond exam day.
In conclusion, if your goal is to simply pass the PMP exam without
learning new techniques to improve your project management skills,
then a boot camp may be just what you’re looking for. If you are unemployed, single without familial commitments, have more money
than you know what to do with, and are simply looking to add credentials to your CV, then a 4-day PMP boot camp will probably serve you
well. However, if you are genuinely interested in becoming a better
project manager on the road to excelling on the PMP exam, then a
more in-depth study approach is what you want.
2011 January, p. 13
...... 5 Reasons… continued from p. 13
Successfully passing the PMP Exam and achieving lasting and positive effects on your project management skills involves daily study
time for 10 to 12 weeks. Individuals that choose to study on their
own should read the PMBOK® Guide twice, utilize an additional
PMP self-study preparation book, listen to a PMP Exam Podcast,
and tackle as many sample exam questions as possible. Individuals
that prefer the structure of a classroom schedule should select a
training class that meets for several weeks. Self-study at home will
complement the in-class lectures and further solidify the information. Following this approach will ensure that you not only pass the
exam, but become a superior project manager along the way.
PMI Houston Chapter, Inc.
Summary:
PMP Exam Bootcamps are often advertised as a “sure fire way to pass
the PMP Exam”. However, while they may help you in passing the
exam, they have a number of significant drawbacks. This article explores these “unmentionables” and explains why boot camps are a
really bad idea.
