  • Note to Instructor: As soon as students are assembled, have them take the timed, pre-assessment test in Chapter 1 of the Achieve CAPM® Exam Success study guide. Then have them grade their questions. Have a general discussion on areas of strength and weakness.
  • There are 15 pretest questions that do not count towards the final score. The exam taker will not know which questions are the 15 pretest questions.
  • Note to Instructor: Emphasize to students the need to use a variety of study methods and sources to help keep their interest. The PMBOK® Guide should be cross referenced to the Achieve CAPM® Exam Success book and this participant guide. Students should take many practice exams and may use sample exam questions from the book, the CD, podcasts, or other sources.
