Dr. Jimmie Flores taught a week-long PMP Certification Preparation course which I attended April 11 – April 15, 2011. It was excellent. The course was most beneficial in that it taught me the methods and tools of the professional management body of knowledge and prepared me for taking the PMP exam.
Dr. Flores taught from his tailored JMBOK presentation handout which thoroughly covered the PMP exam topics and included many definitions and examples. It provided references to additional information and examples in the PMBOK and Rita Mulcahy’s PMP Exam Prep Document which we reviewed.
Dr. Flores thoroughly knew his subject and presented the management material in a very positive, up-beat manner with readily understandable examples which made the material come alive. He injected real life illustrations which helped us see the application and benefits of the PMP management methodologies.
For each of the daily sessions, Dr. Flores used practice exams for the material we covered which helped ingrain the material in our minds, show us our strengths, point out our weaknesses, and direct our focus to areas needing improvement. Dr. Flores made the class interesting and kept us alert by asking questions and rewarding correct responses. At the end of the course, the top three students with the most correct answers were presented tokens of appreciation.
I highly recommend attending Dr. Flores’ PMP Certification Preparation course.
