Preparation for NPDP Exam, advices ??!

  • 1.  Preparation for NPDP Exam, advices ??!

    Posted 07-30-2019 14:57

    I am preparing for the #PDMA #NPDP exam and I am using the PDMBok as the sole reference for study and the 40 questions on the PDMA website for the exam.

    Can someone share their experience with the NPDP exam study and the best ways to prepare for it ?

    Thanks for the question Seif Eldin Abdelghany, It is possible to pass with a thorough understanding of the #PDMABoK. The #PDMABoK is a comprehensive guidebook to NPD Professional certification and covers all seven sections of the NPD Professional certification exam.  It provides all the basic information required to pass.  It is recommended that candidates also hold a BS or equivalent university degree and have two years or more of professional experience in the product innovation (development) and management field.  Inside the #PDMABoK are lists of references that can be accessed to go deeper on any of the specific topics covered at the fundamental level.

    Sincerely, Karen Dworaczyk

    Hi Karen,

             Thank you very much for your reply.

    I understand that the #PDMABoK is under​going a revision currently for the 2nd version, and I wanted to ask how will this affect the exam at the moment and the expected date of publication and expected date of impact of the 2nd version on the exam.

    I am currently trying to go full throttle regarding the exam with self study.

    Thank you for your support

    Sincerely
    Seif Abdelghany
