There are many ways to view and use the PM Illustrated site. This includes unregistered, registered and paid memberships. The main features for registered members are shown below:
0) Casual Surfers
Of course, anyone can navigate to www.PMIllustrated.com and visit the site. More than 50% of the core topics are currently freely available. So, please, look around and see if visual learning is for you.
1) Free, Limited Browsing
Creating a Free, Limited Browsing membership account will allow you to track your progress and collect electronic badges to monitor your achievements. It also gives access to leaderboards and points if you like to gamify your learning.
Quiz Progress Tracking
Each module features a self-assessment quiz at the end. Since you can navigate the topics in any order, many people find it helpful to track their progress through the quizzes by collecting electronic badges. You need at least a free account to collect badges.
There are 3 paid membership levels (1-month, 3-months, and 12-months.) These provide full access to all the topics to prepare for the PMP® exam. The site provides 100% coverage of all the subjects in the PMP® Exam Content Outline, along with self-assessment quiz questions.
All the paid memberships also provide:
Simulated Exam Quizzes – These are timed quizzes that feature questions at random from the entire curriculum of exam topics. You can choose 10, 25 or 50 question options, and they are timed to simulate how long per question you get in the real PMP® exam. These are powerful tools for boosting your confidence and preparing you for the exam.
Online Flashcards – Test your knowledge and target weak areas using the online flashcards. Complete with the option to “star” topics to return to, the flashcards are an effective way to confirm understanding and identify any gaps you may have.
