Stop all the crap:

So, Stop all that crap, make a decision, reset your goals & put your own plan.

Studying for the PMP:

  1. PMP Exam Prep Seminar – by Joseph Phillips
  2. Other course given in my native Arabic language PMP Preparation Course 6th Edition includes 42 PDUs – Arabic by Waleed Elbasyouni

    life sessions (2-3 times/week) – Boot Camp

Preparing for the Exam:

  • Read
