Pass the PMP® exam faster, with more confidence, by using the neuroscience of Visual Learning. Dry, boring content is challenging to remember. Yet, our brains are hardwired to recall visual, fun and unexpected information – we can use this to our advantage to make studying more fun and effective.

“PM Illustrated: A visual learner’s guide to project management” shows you how the various elements that make up the PMP® exam fit together. Using mindmaps and illustrations, the entire PMP® exam syllabus is explained with memorable graphics and cartoons to boost recall and shorten your study time.

Based on the content of the PM website created by Mike Griffiths, best-selling author of the PMP-ACP® exam study materials. This book also features exclusive chapters on life cycle selection, an introduction to agile, and exam-taking tips not included on the website.

Stop the highlighting and note-taking. See the big picture of the new exam curriculum. Learn concepts quicker - visually with better recall and retention.
