This documentation is personal study notes I prepared during my PMP certification study. The source for this study notes is partially from PMBOK 2000, PMP Exam Cram 2, and www.pmstudy.com. I only take notes on knowledge areas that I thought was useful for me. In the real exam, the contents covered are much broader and more difficult than any reference books. So I think real life experience is very important.
