(10 customer reviews)




What you’ll learn

  • By the end of this course you will be able to confidently solve any EVM problem on the PMP exam.
  • You will know the difference between variances and indexes and why each are important in EVM analysis.
  • You will be able to tell whether a project is over or under budget and ahead or behind schedule, based on EVM calculations.
  • Rather than having to memorize a lot of formulas, you will have an understanding of all the terms, what they mean and how to derive an answer.

Are you apprehensive about all the math problems on the PMP exam? Like thinking about doing math instantly transports you back to being an awkward high school student that dreaded going to algebra class?

It’s not particularly pleasant to think about. But, for many folks taking the PMP, having to do math causes a lot of anxiety.

Why is this? Because many people just freak out thinking that the math on the PMP is upper-level, calculus designed to make us feel stupid.

But that is not the case. In fact, if we were to do an analogy showing what PMP math is really like it would probably look something like this:

PMP Math : Calculus :: Easy Mac : Cooking Pasta from Scratch

In fact, all of the math on the PMP exam is basic arithmetic. Addition. Subtraction. Multiplication. Division. There is nothing complex about the math, it is just knowing the tricks of what they are looking for.

This course is designed to help you relax when it comes to math on the PMP exam, in particular focusing on the Earned Value Management (EVM) analysis. Since becoming a PMP in 2010, I have taught the EVM section to many different students. I start the lecture the same way, telling the students to take a deep breath in and to realize that the math questions are actually something that they should look forward to seeing on the exam.

Why? Because the math problems have a black-and-white answer that can be determined. There is not some abstract, choose-the-best-option type of answers that drive me crazy as a test taker. There is one answer that is the right answer and I can prove it out with a pen and paper.

This EVM course is the first of a series of PMP Math courses I plan on releasing to Udemy. My goal is to not just demystify the PMP math problems, but to also give you the confidence to solve them without having to clutter your mind with a bunch of formulas. Trust me. You will have plenty of other facts and information to memorize for the test that will take up valuable space in your brain.

By the end of this course, you’ll know all about EVM including:

  • The difference between Earned Value and Planned Value
  • How to answer the question as to whether the project is over/under budget
  • How to answer the question as to whether the project is behind/ahead of schedule
  • The difference between variances and indexes (and how to calculate them without having to fret too much about the formulas)
  • How to estimate the final cost of the project at various points in the life cycle

Rather than having a boring slideshow with a voiceover telling you about EVM, I filmed this entire course where you can see me explain each of the concepts and work through examples on a white board. Yeah, I apparently had a bad hair day with my cowlick sticking up—don’t make too much fun of me in the comments. Additionally, there is a PowerPoint file with each of the questions and answers that can help you follow along.

If you want to stop worrying about the math questions and start crushing them, this course is for you.

There is a ton of useful information in this course, and in just 60 minutes from now you can have mastery on how to answer all the EVM questions.

Not convinced? Udemy offers a money back guarantee, so you can get your cash back if you aren’t satisfied. Sounds like a can’t lose deal to me. Enroll in this course now to gain the confidence you need to answer all PMP EVM Math questions.

  1. Donny Phan

    Super practical. Lessons are catered towards anyone looking to find work in this industry. It felt very comprehensive and gave me a broad understanding of the programming spectrum

  2. Madhav raj Verma

    Thanks for your great effort. i am fully satisfied with this course the way you teach and your explanation are very clear ,The content you provide in your course no one can do this at this price.

    I really didn’t want to leave a low rating as Angela is a great teacher. The 1st half of this course was terrific. The 2nd half was terrible. Under the justification of “teaching students how to figure things out on their own”, pretty much all videos and all explanations were dropped. You were just told what to do, given links to documentation and told to figure it out on your own. I understand doing that to some degree, but to revert to that entirely for nearly half the content barely makes this a course. It’s just a list of things for you to learn, then you’re left on your own to learn them. The 2nd half was so bad, especially the data science component, that I didn’t bother finishing the course.

    Amazing 40 days course.
    Angela is a great teacher.
    The other 60 days are all about web developement, interacting with web pages, on your own with little to no explanations. I did not expect that at all. I wanted to learn more about software and scripting.
    This left me disappointed , confused and i started to doubt myself. Not a fun experience after the amount of effort i’v put in this course.

    Exercices format and explanations for the first 40 days were worth it tho.

  5. Ben K

    Not just an introduction to python, but really helps you learn fundamental aspects of python and coding in general. Some parts may require some knowledge on the subject (data science comes to mind) and there is quite some web development in the course. So, a few areas were not completely to my liking (I would have liked to see it done differently), but this course deserves the 5 stars in my opinion.

  6. Omid Alikhel

    I found the method a bit difficult when a code is written and then changed back to something different, with no enough explanation of how something happened and where it came from or a step by step explanation of why something is happening, i have no doubt in the instructors talent, but we are beginners!

  7. Alica Cverdeľová

    I love this course, Angela explained it very easily and clearly from the beginning, but I loved her 1 minute final videos, which ended later: What a pity.
    BUT I felt a little disappointed now with the project Day 39/40. Where I was maximally lost, I could not come out of where to look for anything and it was poorly explained and the biggest mistake was that there were no videos with explanations, I think it was quite a complicated project where many things were used and no explanation, only the final results. And they carried a few things in the projects before, so I had her project run once and it showed her the mistake as well as me, so in that case you have to leave it at that and what else is a shame. It’s hard to do a project when you don’t see what’s going on there.
    I’m a little worried about the next few weeks, and I hope it won’t be a waste of time.

  8. Szymon Kozak

    I think that the course tutor is really good in giving right information to learn at the right time. Thanks to this fact, my understanding of coding in python after 29 days of learning is above my expectations.

  9. Begoña Ruiz Diaz

    Ha sido la mejor elección que podría haber hecho.

  10. Vaibhav Sachdeva

    I want to thank Angela for making such an amazing course. It really helped me explore more things with python.
