There are iPhone apps to train your pets, apps to count your calories, apps to fart, belch and burp, then why not an app to prepare for the PMP exam, which is a much more noble cause after all? So here I am today, reviewing a new PMP Exam Simulator app called iStudy PMP ® Exam, for the iPhone and the iPod Touch. This app is specifically designed to help you pass the PMP exam. Interestingly, the publisher's website says that the questions have been developed by a "PMP Examiner".
So how does this PMP exam simulator stack up against hundreds of others out there? Is it really outstanding or just one among the crowd? What is its unique selling proposition (USP)? Is it even worth your time? Let's find out.

Last week, I watched Steve Jobs' Keynote address (video) at the iPad Launch. As I was watching the video, my mind slipped into a flashback of 2007, when I was preparing for my PMP Certification exam.
