Testimonial

- Heather Wilson, CMP

Now I am not going to lie, folks. At the end of some very long days (especially when I was on site visits, flying to and fro or after an event day) it was hard to tune into two hours of CMP exam study prep. Then there was the reading. There are two course books that you will need to read at least some of to pass the exam. Ellen gives you a lot of tips for taking the test, what to look out for and lets you know subject matter that is likely to appear on the test. She also gives you a very precise reading list and lets you know which charts in the text you’ll need to commit to memory.
