Carl Stumpf is a management consultant with over nine years of project management experience and eleven years of management consulting experience. Here is the report from PMI with his name on the passing list! His specialties are information technology and financial consulting. My experience in studying for the exam is somewhat unusual because I spent a long time studying for the exam on-and-off before taking the exam due to various career changes that I was involved with (unintentionally). For example, I set up a study group to prepare for the Project Management Professional exam and, out of our dozen members, over 1/2 were laid off by our company in mid-stream during the course of our study effort. I scored an 85% on the exam.
