Anyone has done PMP with them?
I called today Project PRO quoted me $2.2k and ERC quoted me $3k both include course and exam.
I read from the advertisement for Project PRO their trainer is a local trainer called Charles Lim, is he good? Any feedback?
I checked with ERC too their trainer is VIncent CHEN, is he good? from China?
Anyone can share?
For that kind of money I'd look into a company that guarantees you will pass. For example, Cheetah, the one I used, provided the training, set up the test dates, showed you everyday what you would score, and then guaranteed that you could attend up to three more times if you failed, and if you did fail, you'd get your money back.
They predicted I'd pass with an 86, I passed with an 88, first shot, and it was actually quite easy.
I'm not saying that Cheetah is the only one, just that:
a) You need someone who can communicate ideas very well in English because some of the 'trick' questions are definitions of detail. I've seen poor English speakers unable to communicate this fine line.
b) You need someone who teaches more than PMBOK content because, alone, PMBOK is insufficient to pass the test.
c) You need lots of accurate sample questions so you begin to see how things work.
d) You need to take the test promptly after the coursework to maximize knowledge retention.
