Minneapolis, MN (September 12th, 2005)

RMC Project Management, the innovator in project management training and development since 1991, has announced the worldwide release of its new PMP exam preparation materials by award-winning author Rita Mulcahy. RMC's self-study products include the best-selling book PMP® Exam Prep, Hot Topics Flashcards and PM FASTrack® Exam Simulation Software.

In addition to alignment with changes and terminology in the Project Management Institute's recently revamped PMBOK® Guide Third Edition, Rita's new book includes additional study material, games, exercises, and common pitfalls and mistakes, totaling over 100 pages of never-before published material. The book also includes enough test questions for nearly two full PMP exams.

"Realistically, Rita began creating this book the day the last one was released," stated Eric Rudolf, Director of Marketing for RMC. "This book goes well beyond a few wording changes and a new cover. We spent over three years researching why people struggle with the exam—and used this knowledge to create what we believe is the single most valuable PMP exam preparation resource available."

RMC also collected thousands of suggestions for improvement from PM instructors, former students and users of its self-study products, which resulted in significant changes that included expansion of the Time Management chapter and the addition of a completely new chapter on Project Management Processes. In response to feedback from users of its book, RMC also modified the navigation to cater to both knowledge area and process group learners.

RMC's exam simulation software, PM FASTrack®, has also undergone significant changes. In addition to a complete facelift, the application was written in a new development language that provides more flexibility and a number of new features; including automatic question bank updates for users with Internet connectivity, new sorting capabilities, upgraded exam reporting and archiving, more "wordy" questions, and cross-references to the book PMP Exam Prep for additional study help.

"While our exam preparation materials are designed to help users pass the exam, our focus has always been on understanding versus memorization," noted Rudolf. "In addition to guidance on passing the exam, users of our products gain an understanding of the project management process and improve their PM skills. In fact, students often use our materials as a reference long after passing the exam, because they are applicable to real-world project management work as well."

All products are available for purchase from the RMC website as of today, and the company will begin to fill orders from RMC's worldwide distributor and reseller network starting the week of September 19th. Distributors or resellers wishing to place orders are encouraged to contact RMC via email at accounting@rmcproject.com.
