Self Study Product Overview

Can I Self-Study for the CAPM® Exam and Expect to Pass?

The fact is, thousands of people self-study for the CAPM exam each year. Although this mode of study takes the most discipline, self-study using books, software and audio books is also the least expensive way to prepare for the CAPM exam.

If you have the discipline to manage your own studies and create your own study plan, RMC's complete line of self-study products is a great alternative.

Created with the assistance of a psychometrician (just like the actual exam) PM FASTrack® is designed to simulate the actual exam in every detail. The program's database of 600+ questions allows you to search by keyword/concept, as well as take timed exams by knowledge area or general CAPM simulation.

Features for version 3 include automatic question bank updates (for people with Internet connections), upgraded exam reporting and archiving, and more "wordy" questions that more closely match the actual exam. In addition, all questions are cross-referenced with RMCs CAPM® Exam Prep textbook, so you may quickly and easily go back and work on your weak areas. Why be surprised when you take the actual exam? Find your gaps before the exam finds them for you!
