How The PMP® Exam eFlashCards Work
The PMP® Exam eFlashCards™ are images that you watch on your smart phone, tablet or PC.
The first image shows the question, the second image has the corresponding answer, the third image shows the next question, and so on. In this way you swipe from image to image, from question to answer, allowing you to study the project management concepts and facts you need to know for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam.
Simply copy the images to your portable device (via a USB cable), open your photo viewer and begin your studies. It's that simple!
Also Available as a Printable FlashCards!
Do you prefer printed, physical flash cards? That's not a problem with the PMP® Exam Printable FlashCards™ (PDF). Please click here for the details...
How do the PMP® Exam eFlashCards™ Help me?
Research has shown that repetition is the most effective form of studying and remembering facts. And nothing beats flashcards to help make repetitive learning a fast and easy process. Flashcards engage multiple senses in the learning process because you "compete" with yourself to see if you know the answers to the questions.
Your PMP® Exam eFlashCards™ are written in an easy to understand, straightforward style. You get the facts and technical language that you need to remember for your PMP® Exam.
It's also very easy for a friend to help you study because they don't even have to know anything about project management. They can be your quiz master simply by reading out the questions and checking if you get the answers right.
Study Faster, Smarter and Easier
Your PMP® Exam eFlashCards™ help speed up your PMP® Exam studies:
- Anytime and Anywhere - Simply copy the eFlashCards to your smart phone and you are ready to study.
- Master PMBOK® Guide Concepts - You will learn concepts, terms and PMI-isms from the PMBOK® Guide because the eFlashCards will teach you the complete PMBOK® Guide Glossary definitions.
- Practice PMP® Exam Language - Don't let the exam language blindside you. Study the meaning and description of terms like the tornado diagram, central tendency, Monte Carlo simulation, parametric estimating, PDPC, regression analysis, RACI chart, and hundreds more.
- Maximize Your Time - Got five minutes to spare? Just whip out your phone and study a few new concepts.
- It's Easy - Read the question - Think of the answer - Swipe with your finger - See if you were correct. What could be simpler?
You Must Install a Separate Photo App
Unfortunately you cannot use the official iOS or Android photo apps to study your eFlashCards, because these official apps only display images based on "last modified date" instead of "by filename".
This means that if you use iOS or Android you must first install a third-party photo gallery that is capable of displaying the eFlashCards "by filename".
Note: iOS 8 has fixed this bug. If you use iOS 8 you don't need to install a separate app.
|Android Phone or Tablet
||iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch|
|Operating System||Android (all versions)||iOS (before 8 only)|
|Official App||Photos and Gallery||Photos|
|Problem||Displays images "by last modified date" only||Displays images "by last modified date" only|
|Solution||Install app that can display photos "by filename".||Install app that can display photos "by filename".|

You Receive 1,500 PMP® Exam eFlashCards
Each eFlashCard consists of two .png image files. So you will receive 1,500 .png files with questions and 1,500 .png files with answers. That's a total of 3,000 .png files. To help you manage this large number of files, we divided them into 10 subdirectories of 150 cards each. And when you copy this folder structure to your smart phone or tablet then each directory becomes a separate photo album. In this way you can study 150 questions / answers at a time.
Your 1,500 eFlashCards are what we call the "eFlashCard Set" and you receive the same set of cards in four different ways:
|Set 1, Set 2, Set 3||Each of these three sets contains the same 1,500 eFlashCards but they are each shuffled in a different random order. In this way you can first study Set 1 until you feel that you begin to remember in which order the questions / answers show up. Now you can switch over to Set 2 where the questions / answers are in a completely different order. And if needed you even have a third set to repeat the process.|
|Set 4||This set contains the same 1,500 eFlashCards as all the other sets. But here we have sorted them into the three categories that are described in the next section just below.|
The eFlashCards Teach you the Must-Know Concepts
The PMP® Exam requires you to know hundreds, if not thousands of project management related terms and facts. Most of these can be found in The PMBOK® Guide. But not all of them! Experts generally agree that about 75%-85% of the concepts you need to know for the PMP Exam are directly related to the PMBOK® Guide. The rest comes from various other sources.
That is why your PMP® Exam eFlashCards were created from the following, multiple sources to ensure that you get the width and breadth you need:
|PMBOK® Guide Glossary||The eFlashCards in this category are all based on the glossary that you find in the back of the PMBOK® Guide. These eFlashCards help you study and remember all the project management concepts and terminology that is used in the guide. This knowledge is indispensable for the PMP Exam.||1,212|
|Non PMBOK® Guide||The PMBOK® Guide does not contain 100% of the knowledge and concepts used in project management today. So the eFlashCards in this category are based on various other sources. With these eFlashCards you will learn many of the facts not mentioned in the guide but needed for the exam.||218|
|Code of Ethics||The questions in this category are based on the PMI Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Your PMP Exam will contain a number of situational questions that relate to ethics and proper conduct, and the questions on these eFlashCards will teach you the facts.||70|
|Total number of eFlashCards in all categories:||1,500|
Engaging Style Supports Faster Study Speed
The last thing you want from your eFlashCards is to be bored by the same, repetitive question / answer style. That is why we have developed your eFlashCards with a variety of styles and question / answer designs. Here are 10 examples:
|Sample eFlashCard Question||Sample eFlashCard Answer|
|What are Acceptance Criteria?||Conditions that must be met before project deliverables are accepted.|
|Explain Central Tendency.||A property of the central limit theorem predicting that the data observations in a distribution will tend to group around a central location.|
|The Cost Performance Index (CPI) is the ratio of what project variables?||CPI is expressed as the ratio of earned value to actual cost.|
|Describe the Dependency Determination technique.||Dependency Determination is a technique used to identify the type of dependency that is used to create the logical relationships between predecessor and successor activities.|
|How do you define Estimate Activity Durations?||The process of estimating the number of work periods needed to complete individual activities with estimated resources.|
|Give examples of what comprise Organizational Process Assets.||Plans, processes, policies, procedures, and knowledge bases that are specific to and used by the performing organization.|
|How would you define Methodology?||A system of practices, techniques, procedures, and rules used by those who work in a discipline.|
|Fill in the blanks. The M______ R_______ is not included in the performance measurement baseline (PMB).||The Management Reserve is not included in the performance measurement baseline (PMB).|
|Describe what a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is.||A hierarchical decomposition of the total scope of work to be carried out by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables.|
|What is a hierarchical decomposition of the total scope of work to be carried out by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables?||Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)|
Take another look at the last two examples in this list. Notice something? Both examples ask you about the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), but they do so in two different ways. Example 9 simply asks you "What is the definition of the WBS?" and example 10 gives you the definition and asks "What is this definition describing?"
We have used this "two-way" approach for most of the questions on your eFlashCards, because in this way you will learn, understand and be able to describe facts and concepts from multiple angles.

Technical Specifications: What is Recommended for My Device?
Use this table to identify which version / size of the eFlashCards you should use for your device. The green check-mark indicates what works best on your device. As a general rule: The bigger your screen is, the bigger the size you need. So if you have a tablet then use the large version, but if you have a smart phone then go with medium.
|iPod 5th Gen 60GB|
|iPod Touch 8GB**|
|Samsung Galaxy S3, S4, S5**|
|Samsung Galaxy Tablet**|
** Using iOS or Android? Please see "Device Limitations" below.
Technical Specifications: Are there any Device Limitations?
|iOS / Android||The official iOS and Android photo apps cannot be used for the eFlashCards. Please see the red section "You Must Install a Separarate Photo App" toward the top of this page.|
|iPod||eFlashCards cannot be used on a "normal" iPod because the iPod cannot display the eFlashCards in the correct order.|
|PNG Capable||The device you use must be capable of displaying .png images. All modern smart phones, tablets and PCs are capable.|
|Do not use Shuffle||You must watch the eFlashCards in the order they appear in the directories / albums. You cannot use the "shuffle" feature on your device. This is because if you use the shuffle feature, then your device will show you the questions and answers in random order. For example: it would first show question 12, then answer 38, then question 33, then answer 4. That doesn't work.|
|Blackberry Pearl||The Blackberry Pearl (8130) does not have a "show next image" function. Therefore, it is not possible to manually go through the eFlashCards. Instead you have to use its built in slide show viewer.|
Don't wait until it's too late. Don't walk into the exam thinking: “Did I do everything I could have done to prepare for this monster?"
