    One can expect about 15-20 questions related to mathematical. Out of these most of them are from time management(Critical path) and Cost management(earned value management)

    Also simple calculations about communication channel and different types of contracts (fixed, time and material, cost reimbursable) etc.

    The formula based questions on the exam are more than just calculating earned value or similar. There are 49 PMP formulas that you must memorize and know by heart, ranging from simple averages to depreciation, etc. Typically these formula based questions will center around earned value management, PERT, critical path, etc. Know the formulas, memorize them and be able to use them in context of the questions asked. That is essential for passing this exam.

    Hello guys ,

    Which material you referred to practice on mathematical problems because examples makes concept clearer rather than just mugging up.

    Kindly share your thoughts on it.
