Knowledge Areas and Processes Mnemonics

Raj found these memorization aids amusing and helpful to remember the knowledge areas and processes. Advice from PMP cert group:

  • It is helpful to do a brain dump of the knowledge areas, processes (core/facilitating) and formulae onto paper before the exam starts.
  • Everyone stresses ITTO - inputs outputs tools and techniques - apparently there are at least 15 - 20 questions about these.

Knowledge Areas:
I Stir The Chicken Quickly or Help Clean Ruined Pans
Integration, Scope, Time, Cost, Quality, Human Resources, Communication, Risk, Procurement
