BrainBOK is an application designed to help project managers achieve PMP® Certification. It integrates a variety of tools such as PMP exam simulator, PMP flashcards, PMP ITTO Quiz, and PMP ITTO Explorer, and can be called the swiss-army knife of PMP® exam prep. 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® resources, and gazillion spreadsheets, obsolete. It has a minimalistic, intuitive and user-friendly interface. Though it’s not a mobile application, many of the features are designed with mobile devices (such as iPhone and iPad) in mind. Above all, it’s free to try. Let’s take a quick tour of the features of BrainBOK.
PMP ITTO Explorer
ITTO Explorer is a unique way to explore the Inputs, Tools and Techniques, and Outputs (ITTO) of the project management processes defined in the PMBOK Guide. The usual slow, boring and painful process of referring to the PMBOK Guide comes alive with the ITTO Explorer. It brings the entire PMBOK Guide to your fingertips. It’s the fastest way to familiarize with the ITTOs.
PMBOK Quiz is a simple multiple choice question (MCQ) based quiz designed to master various aspects of the PMBOK Guide. Use it to master project management process ITTOs, PMBOK Glossary and many more areas.
Jog your memory everyday and make learning fun with the PMBOK Flashcards. It has a simple and and intuitive interface, which focuses on usability and content. Use it on your computer or mobile devices anywhere anytime.
PMP Exam Simulator
PMP Exam Simulator is multiple choice exam application designed to simulate the real PMP® Certification Exam in terms of the quality of questions and user interface features. This tool is still work-in-progress and will see lots of improvements in future.
And that’s not the end. In fact it’s the beginning. Expect to see many new tools being added to this application. But while you use this tool, keep in mind that it’s NOT a commercial application, and hasn’t been tested and reviewed thoroughly. It’s also under active development and you may see issues and outages. So, please do not set your expectations too high just yet. In follow-up posts, I’ll discuss the features and issues in detail.
I know that you are very anxious to get your hands on the tool now. I’ll not make you wait any longer. Here’s a present to all the readers of Deep Fried Brain:
