Why You Should Try Getting PMP® Certified by 2017?


If you have mentally planned to go for PMP® then start acting NOW. Time, Tide and Opportunities Never wait for any one. Below are the possible reason why you get the PMP®  certification in 2017.:


  • PMBOK®GUIDE 5th Version Study Resources and Materials are Available: The current edition of the PMBOK® Guide and the exam are very familiar and Aspirants can find lots of lessons learned and study resources/materials readily at their hands Still there is enough time to study and prepare based on the current exam version.


  • New Version Exam will be Much Harder: Historically every new version of New PMBOK exam gets harder than before. Students needs to cover new study area and discover new patterns of questions during the exams.


  • Online Study Courses and Exam Prep Reference books May not be Updated: It takes at least two quarter to come up with a matured study materials to support the need of the PMP® aspirants after releasing a new PMBOK So if you missed 2017, you may have to wait at least 3 -6 months to be ready for the exam.


  • Cost of Study Materials will go up: The exam prep courses may be more expensive (Our exam simulation cost tentatively may go up by 25% with the release of new version based on new PMBOK).


  • Career Development: Sooner you get PMP® certified, faster your local and global job opportunity increases. In addition, you become a great problem solver and you can add significant value to your organization development. Delay in certification may cause you lose significant market opportunities.


In Short, I would like to repeat “Time, Tide and Opportunities Never wait for anyone, get your dream PMP certificate in time in your style”

PMaspire thank you so much.
Brilliant way among all.

Excellent.. . thanks a lot to PMaspire. I have failed two times and I succeeded in the final attempt. This is the best Simulator

I am pleased to share my experience using the PMAspire resource. I accidentally stumbled on PMAspire, and took to it. The free trial opened up a lot of my weaknesses and I had to subscribe since I was preparing for my PMP Exam. The resource proved highly highly invaluable. It's to me a one-stop online shop. This is my experience. I painstakingly tested myself using the Knowledeg area questions and those of the Processes. It exposed my gaps, which I had to work on seriously. There were times of discouragement but I was undaunted as per my knowledge gaps and Gbam! I MADE IT. I GOT MY PMP! I will always reference and recommend PMAspire to anyone who wishes to sit for the PMP certification exam. I am right away recommending this to my colleagues in my office.
Thank you PMAspire for such a resource you offer for the exam preparation, it is very useful. It is a one-stop shop. The questions I encountered in my preparation using PMAspire resource helped shape my mind and helped me in the real exam. No regrets at all. I recommend PMAspire to potential candidates. Kudos and keep up the good job
