I would like to clarify on this point. I just attended a preview of PMP certification and was told that there is only one testing center located in Jurong East. The waiting time is 2 months. I cannot remember the name of the testing center but it is definitely not Informatics.

Can I confirm COMAT and Informatics can conduct the PMP exam for PMI?

2. Even if they follow the money-back guarantee T&C of their other countries - It is impossible to book an exam on the 5th day in Singapore or even within 14 days of the course. There's only 2 exam providers in Singapore, Informatics (where there's a 1-2 months queue) and COMAT Training which only conducts exams for its own students

I just signed up for the 5 days PMP course with Knowledge Method. Course starts next Monday. I felt comfortable to sign up with the center because it has the dates I wanted. Also I did not find any negative comments about the center.

Total fee is 3,724sgd inclusive of GST. If I pass maybe my total cost will be only 1K.

I am thinking of doing my PMP in Jan 2011 and was wondering any folks here have experience with ESI?

And it seems the the Enhanced Citrep Program (according to the IDA website) will only run till 31 Mar 2011.
does that mean that it take the course before 31 march still can claim?

After going through the PMP Class, I found that reading the RMC's PMP Exam Prep book is much easier than the PMBOK. Before the class I started reading PMBOK, I died on Chapter 3. It was so dry. During the class we went through RMC's book and I found it easier to read. I am now reading the Prep Book first before the PMBOK.

There is a softcopy of PMBOK which you can download after you become a PMI member. I am not aware of any legal mean of getting a softcopy of RMC book.
