To get directions on how to access the free test bank, simply click on the WAV Resource Center logo on the left or www.jrosspub.com/wav; take a few seconds to register; select the Achieve CAPM Exam Success, 2nd Edition title in the Project/Program Management category; and download the Directions for accessing CAPM test bank document for simple, step-by-step access instructions.

Used in conjunction with PMI’s PMBOK® Guide — Fifth Edition (2013), this concise study guide presents all the fundamental knowledge, concepts, exercises, practice questions, and simulated exams needed to prepare for and successfully pass the CAPM® exam on your first try. However, this book is much more than a study guide. It is a valuable desk reference that project team members can use to improve their effectiveness and contribution to the success of a project and is also a good resource for those considering a career in project management.

Readers will have free web-based access for 45 days to over 1000 questions including hundreds of situational questions, enabling users to perform practice tests by simulating actual 150-question exams and arrange questions by knowledge area. (Note: This access begins when you register for the test bank, not when you purchase the book.)
