Through the use of an iPad® simulation participants find themselves immersed in the project management situations they will find on the exam. Because participants actually experience the PMBOK®, they leave with the knowledge, tools, and techniques to pass the new situational exam and improve the performance of their future projects.
The iPad®-based simulation deepens learning by immersing participants in dozens of project management situations relevant to both the exam and real-life project management. The simulation provides a rich multi-media experience designed to increase the levels of learning and give participants an experience to build on.
Each day participants will encounter specific sections of the PMBOK® along with simulation activities, reviews, and quizzes. Practice questions, flashcards, quizzes and additional study aids to accelerate learning.
