However, as a project manager we know cost-benefit analysis plays a significant role in project budget management; similarly, cost you will be paying to take a PMP exam will reap long-term benefits and success in your career.

The knowledge you will gain during this period, it will not only help you to pass the exam but also allow you to learn new techniques and understand real-life project management situations. PMP certified managers are in the USA are paid 16 percentage more than those without certification. You will not just pass an exam by simply remembering all the information from any PMP book, however, you will take knowledge at the next level.
