Using iPad or iPhone for Your PMP Exam Prep

There are many ways to prepare for the PMP Exam. Mobile devices such as iPad have a number of unique features that provide for interesting possibilities in eLearning. As a completely portable learning tool, the iPad can be your best companion to keep you focused on your certification objectives anywhere you go.

A new study by a USC professor attempted to figure out the actual effectiveness of iPad apps in learning. About 122 fifth-graders from two schools and four math classes were used to assess the effectiveness of an iPad app for improving students’ fractions knowledge and attitudes. The study was the first to document learning and motivation gains achieved using iPad.  Even without data of this nature, more than 600 school districts nationwide have already integrated iPads into their curriculum. Here are some of the study’s key findings:

  • Fifth graders fractions test scores improved 15% after playing the math game for 20 minutes over 5 days. This was a significant increase compared to the control group.
  • Students’ confidence towards fractions improved an average of 10%.
  • Virtually all students rated the game as fun and said it helped them learn.

So why not apply the same for your PMP Exam Prep?
