40 NEW PMI-CAPM Free Questions and Answers (Part - 1)

 

The Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®) exam from PMI is solely based on the PMBOK® Guide, 6th edition. The exam blueprint, however, is based on the Exam Content Outline (ECO) for the CAPM exam. The PMBOK guide covers a vast area in project management and includes a good number of Agile concepts and practices. In this post series we will have 40 PMI-CAPM questions.

These questions are referenced from CAPM Live Lessons - Guaranteed PassCAPM 23 Contact Hours and the book, I Want To Be A CAPM. Do note that these questions are not directly from the CAPM exam, but based on my understanding and feedback from successful CAPMs.

To answer these questions, you need to have:

  • Good grasp on Knowledge Areas of the PMBOK Guide, 6th edition. 
  • Good grasp of the introductory areas of the PMBOK guide such as Project Life Cycles, Project Environment and Role of Project Manager. 
  • Sound understaning of the Agile practices as per the PMBOK guide.
  • Understanding the content of the ECO. The ECO is a small, barebone document listing the possible (not all) topics to be covered for the CAPM exam.

This is the first of the series with 20 questions. The next part has another set of 20 questions.

I hope you enjoy doing these questions and it helps in your preparation for the PMI-CAPM exam.

Updated New Course: CAPM Live Lessons – Guaranteed Pass or Your Money Back

 


 

I am pleased to announce the fully revamped new course for Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM®):

CAPM Live Lessons – Guaranteed Pass or Your Money Back


This is a complete video course and comes with a full money-back guarantee linked to you passing the PMI-CAPM exam. It also comes packaged with the mandatory 23 Contact Hours course completion certificate - one of the prerequisites of the exam. 

The first version of the video course was released in 2019. Since then, it has enabled many successful PMI-CAPMs and PMI-PMPs. This course is based on the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK®) Guide, 6th edition and the Examination Content Outline (ECO) for the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM).

Note: The CAPM exam is not as difficult as the PMP exam, which has multiple reference guides and books. The CAPM exam questions are easy to answer, if you have gone through the right content and followed the right material. In fact, if you are struggling to be a PMP due to time constraint or other factors, I’d strongly suggest that you go for the CAPM certification.

Now, coming to the course update, the CAPM Live Lessons course has seen updates based on the CAPM exam and related changes. In fact, with these updates, the course has been completely revamped and it’s as good as a new one.

What’s New in the Course – CAPM Live Lessons?

Below are the highlights for the updates to this course. 

1. NEW CAPM Lessons comes with the Mandatory 23 Contact Hours

The CAPM Live Lessons course now comes packaged with the CAPM 23 Contact Hours, one of the mandatory prerequisites. This course has an end-course assessment and post the assessment, you will be eligible to get the CAPM 23 Contact Hours Course Completion Certificate from Management Yogi.

One of the biggest misconceptions about PMI-CAPM’s 23 Contact Hours program is this: You have to mandatorily get training from an Authorized Training Partner (A.T.P) or Registered Education Provider (R.E.P). It's not true.

In fact, the Handbook for PMI-CAPM exam has long noted this (a direct snippet)

Reference: PMI-CAPM Certification Handbook, Section: "CAPM Certification Application and Payment", Page 9 (source: pmi.org)

PMI-CAPM Handbook – Link to Check   

As you can clearly see, only ATP or REP can provide 23 contact hours is NOT true. With this course, you will now have 23 Contact Hours.

2. Completely NEW Set of Welcome Videos and NEW Content for CAPM Exam

The CAPM exam has changed a lot in the last few years and also as noted in the previous point, this course now comes packaged with CAPM 23 Contact Hours.  Considering it, a fresh set of Welcome videos have been added.

As the CAPM exam has changed, a number of videos such as the certification process, certification renewal cycle, exam question styles, the continuing certification requirements, ability to pay in various currencies, among others are also changed.

These are part of the “Welcome” lesson. You can see the course index below.

3. COMPLETE Addition of Agile Concepts

Though the CAPM-ECO informs on few Agile concepts in certain knowledge areas (KAs), Agile concepts are available for all the 10 KAs, and in project life cycles. Now, the course has exhaustive Agile content.

The various life cycles used in a project now have more explanations. In addition, a brief on Agile Manifesto has been explained. 

4. NEW Agile related questions for Lesson-End Questions

For every knowledge area, a number of Agile related questions are added. Remember, though the ECO informs on a few Agile concepts, the PMBOK guide has Agile content for the knowledge areas.

5. NEW Agile related questions for Full-Length Questions

There are four full length question-sets in this Guaranteed CAPM video course, each having 150 questions and answers. Now, these question sets are revamped to include more Agile questions.

This will available under “Full Length Question Sets”.

6. NEW Guide Covering Key Areas of Agile Manifesto

The Agile Manifesto has 4 values and 12 principles. For your CAPM exam, PMBOK guide is only guide to refer. Nevertheless, you need to have a brief understanding of the Agile values and principles. 

This falls under “Lesson – 16: Final Talk” of this course.

Note: The Agile Guide for the course can be downloaded.

7. NEW Process and ITTO Exercises for all the KAs.

The PMBOK has a number of processes, which in turn have a number of inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs (ITTOs). You need to be proficient in these, which are explicitly listed in the CAPM-ECO. 

For this purse, a new set of videos, with 379 questions are explained in videos. This is applicable for all the 10 knowledge areas (KAs). You can see them in the index below.

8. NEW Smart Cards for all lessons.

A set of smart cards are also added for every lesson. Smart cards are small, but tricky questions presented as a pair of cards - questions and answers. A number of smart cards (total 365) are now part of this course.

9. NEW XLS Sheet (spreadsheet) with the 5 Process Groups (PG), 10 Knowledge Areas (KA) and 49 Processes

The sole reference guide for the CAPM is the PMBOK guide, 6th edition. This guide will continue to be effective this year for many more months. Now, in the CAPM exam you can face a number of direct questions related to the processes, inputs, tools and techniques, outputs across the 5 PGs and 10 KAs. Hence, I’ve made an XLS sheet available, which will help you immensely. 

The XLS sheet is also going to be useful as you do the process and ITTO exercises.

Note: The XLS sheet can be downloaded.

10. UPDATED Document on How to Fill the CAPM Application and the Formula Gold Cards

The application process for your CAPM exam has been changed and also has been made easier. This now includes the latest changes as per the PMI-CAPM handbook.

Formulas needed for your CAPM are not as exhaustive as the PMP exam. However, I’ve added quite a few into the formula gold cards.

This falls under “Lesson – 16: Final Talk” of this course.

Note: The formula gold cards of the course can be downloaded.

What is CAPM Guaranteed Pass Program with Full Money-Back Guarantee?

New Course – CAPM 23 Contact Hours Online

 



I am pleased to announce the availability of a new course for aspiring Certified Associates in Project Management (CAPM®):  

CAPM 23 Contact Hours Online Course

This is one of its kind courses in the world. This course comes with a FULL money back guarantee. 

I believe the CAPM certification is achievable for any genuinely preparing candidate. The questions are usually direct. It mainly checks your understanding of the PMBOK® Guide, 6th edition. 

This course is fully compliant with the PMBOK Guide 6th edition and the Examination Content Outline (ECO) for CAPM exam. It’s a complete video course.

CAPM certification is not a poor cousin for the other known certification of Project Management Professional (PMP®). Both these certifications are offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). Following are the few advantages of CAPM certification:

  • Well recognized in various industry verticals.
  • You will be recognized and respected by PMPs.
  • Much easier to prepare and clear compared to the PMP exam.
  • Less costly and less time consuming with the right material.
  • No project management experience needed to appear for the exam.

The PMBOK guide 6th edition is a big one and also complicated.  In addition, the CAPM exam’s exam content outline (ECO) also informs about Agile aspects of project management. Many times, as I’ve seen professionals appear for the CAPM exam, without any project management experience as the CAPM exam has one such option. 

Hence, the entire course is presented and explained in very simple language. You need not have any project management experience to go through and complete this course. As the entire course is in video format, you can watch as many times as you need till you get your concepts clarified.


How to Claim CAPM 23 Contact Hours, when not an ATP or REP? 

One of the biggest misconceptions about PMI-CAPM’s 23 Contact Hours program is this: You have to mandatorily get training from an Authorized Training Partner (A.T.P) or Registered Education Provider (R.E.P). Nothing can be further from the truth. 

In fact, the Handbook for PMI-CAPM exam has long noted this (a direct snippet)


Reference: PMI-CAPM Certification Handbook, Section: "CAPM Certification Application and Payment", Page 9 (source: pmi.org)

PMI-CAPM Handbook – Link to Check   

As you can clearly see, only ATP or REP can provide 23-contact hours is NOT true. CAPM related Education Requirements can be provided by training companies or consultants, distance e-Learning companies, among others. This has been the case from the very beginning.

But many mislead on it, which is purely a marketing tactic. Don’t fall for this false and misleading information. Always go with the course, which gives you the highest value and highest possible chance of success, not the ones with highest possible marketing. 

With this course, you will meet the 23 contact hours mandatory pre-requisite for your CAPM examination. This course comes with an on-line end course assessment with 30 questions, which is timed and results will be immediately shown. 


Top Highlights: CAPM 23 Contact Hours

  1. Total Video Duration: 25+ hours 
  2. Number of Videos: 449
  3. Number of Lessons: 14 (+2)
  4. Number of Questions: 500+
