BrainBOK PMP Study Tool Review

I don’t do a whole lot of reviews for new training products or books to help with PMP preparation any longer.

You probably already know that I used the PM PrepCast to help me study when I took the PMP exam. That and the related products OSP International has come out with have been awesome, so while I’m sure there are other good products out there I’ve always recommended those because of my personal knowledge of them.

Well there’s a new tool that I would see as a companion option that was awesome enough for me to dig deeper. Plus I’ve known the project manager behind this tool for years, which is another thing that prompted me to take a look (relationships matter, always be networking!)

You’ll see very soon that it’s got a really slick interface and the things I look for in a good product like this; quality questions in the sample tests, good answer explanations, visual displays of how processes tie together, etc.

It’s called BrainBOK.

In this video, I’ll show you what the tool is all about so you can see for yourself. Take note also that in the video I give some advice about how these types of tools (flashcards, sample tests, etc.) fit into the bigger picture of studying to gain knowledge.

Harwinder gave me free access to the premium version of the tool for a time so that I could check it out and do this review for you. After getting to know the value of the tool I signed up for his affiliate program, which is another thing I do infrequently. That means if you go to a percentage of your purchase will go towards keeping the lights on over here at

The BrainBOK is a solid tool. Harwinder does a great job providing resources to those seeking certification. His blog has some excellent posts on confusing topics, things you will need to study outside the PMBOK, etc. And, he’s been so polite and generous in individual conversations. The free version provides great information and it was the best way to try before I paid to upgrade. You and Harwinder both have a teacher’s attitude, that learning the information for future application trumps memorizing just to get those initials after your name. Great work, both of you!

Thanks for that feedback Lisa, I’m very glad you’ve enjoyed the BrainBOK and I’m sure Harwinder is too!
