How to Become IT Project Certified

Simply go to the CompTIA website (www.comptia. com) to visit the list of testing sites where the exam is currently conducted. I took mine at a VUE center (telephone number in the U.S., 1-877-551-PLUS), but you can also take your test at Prometric (1-877-287-6872). The test is $140 for members of CompTIA ($190 for nonmembers), and there's a discount if several of you decide to take the test—see the website for more details.

Note Prices are subject to change at anytime. Please visit CompTIA's website for the most up-to-date pricing information at www.comptia.org.

You're allowed two hours to take the test and a minimum score of 63% is required to pass. There are eighty-five questions on the test, which are simple multiple-choice.

You'll need a driver's license and one other form of ID (doesn't have to have a picture on it, but must have a signature). No calculators, computers, cell phones, or other electronic devices are allowed. You'll be notified of your grade as soon as you finish the test.

You cannot take this test online.

Note In addition to reading the book, you might consider visiting the major project management websites: www.gantthead.com, www.techrepublic.com,www.4pm.com, and www.pmi.org.
