  BrainBOK ITTO Explorer is even better now

One of the things, which you might have noticed about BrainBOK is that it’s developed from the perspective of a PMP aspirant. Many of the frustrations that I had as a PMP aspirant and as someone who still breathes the subject everyday, are being addressed with BrainBOK. The heart of BrainBOK is the ITTO Explorer.

BrainBOK is an application designed to help project managers achieve PMP®­ and CAPM­® certification. It integrates a variety of tools such as exam simulators, flashcards, and quizzes, and can be called the swiss-army knife of PMP®­ and CAPM­® exam preparation. It aims to transform the way people prepare for these certifications.

BrainBOK introduces some unique features such as the ITTO Explorer, which render hundreds of online PMP®­ and CAPM­® resources, and gazillion spreadsheets, obsolete.

However, development of such a tool was clearly "out of scope" for the project at hand, which was PMP Certification. I passed the exam in reasonably good time, but thought that the process could have been more efficient had I got some simple tools. I moved on to other things and the idea didn’t take off.
