Thank you so much for all of your help!! I'm still a bit emotional, but I just wanted to say thank you so much!!! And the 50 question prep book helped me a lot!

I found this book very unique in its instructional approach: unlike other PMP exam prep books out there that teach you the material mainly by interpreting the PMBOK Guide, this book actually prepares you for the exam by practicing realistic (and very difficult) questions. It sets up your mindset on how it should work while taking the actual PMP exam.

About The Author

Cornelius Fichtner


Cornelius came to project management by accident. He started out as a software developer but quickly realized that he preferred talking to people to writing code. He has been working as a Project Manager in his native Switzerland, in Germany and in the USA since 1990 and received his Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential in April 2004. He has led projects for a management consulting company, a national retailer, an internet startup company, and for one of the oldest financial service providers in the USA.

Cornelius says: “I think the main way I help customers pass their exams is by letting my enthusiasm for project management shine through. Students often comment how I’m able to make a dry subject like PM theory come alive. I put myself into the shoes of our students and see our products from their perspective. This enables me to create training material that has the customer at heart and will help them prepare for and pass their exams and also to become better project managers. I’m the voice and face of pretty much all our training lessons. However, I definitely have a face for radio!”

Cornelius currently lives in Tucson, Arizona, USA with his wife and their four computers. He is a member of the American Wine Society Tucson Chapter. He enjoys juggling and says that he is excellent with three balls, OK with four, but can only keep five balls in the air for a couple of seconds.
