    I would Just like to thank you, and tell you that you are a hero the the CPIM students of the world. I have been trying so hard to find free internet sources that can help me with my MPR exam, and so far I could only find your’e site that is free.

    Good luck with your’e future endeavours!

    ps. one thing that could help people in the future, is if you have sample questions, to make that available on the site aswell, since sample questions are so expensive.

    Thanks again!

    I am interesting in CPIM certification, already passed 1st module exam and now self-studying for the second.
    Meanwhile, I try to get my “foot on the door” … I mean, to get some type of job in the manufacturing field. Assistant buyer would be ideal yet I will be happy with any entry-level position (semi-skilled labor). After many, many applications and some interviews it became unclearly- to me- if CPIM certification, alone, can “open” doors to employment.
    How I can address this situation? Should I give up with CPIM and focus my attention to other fields ( accounting, for example) or I better speed up and get fully certified?
    Can a person without experience but CPIM certificated find employment?
    Thank you

    Hi Cam,

    Thank you for sharing your treasury study notes and experience of taking CPIM, and I am working on this too. I found your notes are very helpful when I reviewed your notes of MPR, however there is one subject, Managing the Master Scheduling Process, is missing its link. Could you please kindly provide its link again. I am going to take MPR soon so appreciate if you can help to retore the link for me to access. Thank you very much for your kindly help.

    Hi All… I was introduced by a classmate about this site and I thought this would be a great place to obtain info from those who have done MPR class.

    I will be sitting for MPR exam, and was wondering if there is anyone who is kind enough to share your study notes and material leading to this MPR Exam. I would really be appreciative!! You can email me directly at if you want…. I’m based in Australia and about to attempt my MPR module.

    I am taking MPR in 2 weeks. Can you please suggest if Vollman’s Manufacturing Planning and Control book will be enough for covering the material for MPR?

    I have good experience in Supply chain and I am aware of basic concepts however, I am afraid if Vollman’s book will be enough.

    Requesting advice on the following points –

    What all material should we cover. Do we need to go through the Tony Arnold’s book as well?
    Can somebody please share the previous question papers or point me to links where I can find them

    Thanks a lot in advance.
