Good Afternoon Mr Furman
I just wanted to let you know that I passed my exam. YAY!!!
Thanks for your continued support even though it’s been years after taking your course. I really appreciate it. I used the first two books you recommended, the podcasts from Cornelius Fichtner and the practice test.

Hi Jeff,
Just wanted to send you a quick note that I passed my PMP exam today on the first try with all the performance rating areas being above target!
I wanted to thank you for all your support with the NYU program and the call we had to discuss the exam and how to study. I reread your book (The Project Management Answer Book, 2nd Edition) and practiced with the simulator (The  Prepcast PMP Exam Simulator, from OSP Int’l) and it all paid off.
Thank you again for being such a good teacher!

Hi Jeff,

I just finished doing my PMP exam and passed! I thought I would share with you first as you were so helpful throughout this journey.

This victory isn’t just mine. I’m profoundly thankful for your generosity in accommodating me into this wonderful class at such short notice. Your patient guidance and thorough explanations have been instrumental in my learning. Given the exceptional teaching and resources you provide, I’ve eagerly recommended you within my circle. So, anticipate a possible influx of students in the near future.

The class materials are comprehensive yet accessible, and the homework was pivotal in solidifying crucial concepts, prepping me for this test.

I’d like to extend my appreciation to my classmates as well. Your collaboration and insights during group activities were invaluable. I have no doubt you’ll shine in the upcoming exam.

Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need insights or strategies for acing the test.

Thank you!

Good afternoon.
I hope this email finds you well. I wanted to express my sincere gratitude for your recommendations and guidance throughout my exam preparation. Thanks to your advice and the materials you shared. I took the exam yesterday and passed it with three Above Targets.
Your encouragement truly meant a lot to men too. Even though I didn’t have the opportunity to take your course, I found great value in the other resources and materials you suggested.
Once again, thank you for your support and guidance.
Wishing you continued success in your endeavors.
Best regards,

Hello Jeff 🙂

I finally took my PMP this morning after pushing it off for a few months. I crammed the past few days as I was fighting a flu. I woke up feeling totally not ready, I prayed, “Jesus take the wheel” you’re the only reason I’ll pass.

I went in, took my time, used my years of managing projects in the Army, stayed on pace and got to the final congratulations screen! I also made sure I had a strategy for the time.

Thank you for your instruction Jeff Furman and D_Sridhar #pmpcertification

I hope you’re doing well and staying warm.

Best regards,


—Cesar T, PMP

Thank you again for the course and prepping us-

I found the test to be much easier than the practice tests, and you covered the key concepts well enough in class that even though I did study quite a bit before-hand I probably could have gone in right after you finished!

—Tommy C, PMP

November 3, 2021

Hello Team, I wanted to share that I passed the PMP Exam.

First I would like to thank Jeff for a great class.

I hope you are all doing well, and best of luck on the exam!

—Dustin D, PMP

October 22, 2021


Wanted to share the good news – after months of prep and procrastination, I have faced my fears, signup to for an in-person PMP certification test on Oct. 16, and passed with a grade of Above Target for all 3 areas on the first try. Your class and the PMP Prepcast prepared me very well for this experience, I went through the test so fast I had 90 minutes to spare, on the 1st try.

And the skills I’ve learned have already paid off: a week ago, I was promoted from Web Developer to Tech Lead Manager at my employer.  They cited my completion of this training as a large part of my qualifications for promotion, as I have been able to act as Scrum master on sprint ceremonies and apply Agile methodologies when scheduling tasks for current projects.

Again, thanks for everything!

—Laura V, PMP

October 6, 2021

Good morning Jeff. I was in your PMP class in April of 2020 and got my CAPM. You had suggested that your class attend DASM, and I wound up attending the DASM class last week and tested out last night. I got a letter of congratulations from PMI this morning.


—Thomas M, CAPM, DASM, CSM, SEC+

Kindest regards, Leigh Ann

July 21, 2021 


Well, today, it finally happened on my last day of eligibility to take the exam. I have kicked the can down the road enough times over the previous year, and I also procrastinated with submitting my application after the class. The studying and procrastination finally paid off, and I received an AT overall on the exam from the three domains. I am delighted to say that I am very excited! Thank you for the class and for all of your assistance. Happy Monday!

—Joey G, PMP

Jeff, thank you for your coaching as I worked to become a certified Project Management Professional! #projectmanagement #pmp

—Mario S, PMP

April 27, 2021

Thank you, Jeff Furman! I have to say, taking your PMP class several years back, and then passing my PMP exam played a very significant role in this (Attaining my Master’s Degree, April 2021).

Before that I failed 2 fairly easy certification exams and discarded their significance. After several years of ignoring certifications and my own training, you helped me build my confidence and get over that crippling fear of failure. I really appreciate all your encouragement and the wonderful way you broke down very dense material to make it consumable by all.

—Bryan S, PMP, Master’s Information Security Engineering, Master’s IT Project Management

April 18, 2021

Good morning Jeff,

Hope you and Mavis are well. I passed my PMP exam on Friday and now I am prepping for the PMI-ACP exam.  Thank you for all the valuable resources, discount codes, and thank you for your support. I have grown so much because of the PMBOK Guide and my journey towards the PMP certification.
Thank you, and be well.
—Megan B, PMP

April 17, 2021

Hi Jeff,

I passed yesterday.  I passed above target while taking it from home. Thank you so very much for all of your support and kindness.  Now that I have turned this corner, I’m resting a little bit but would like to put it towards some pursuit(s).  Let’s see what those are.

With much love and kindness,

Hi Jeff,

Happy New Year!

I just wanted to let you know you that I passed the PMI-ACP exam over the weekend… Woohoo!

I followed- your advice re Mike Griffiths book and the PMI-ACP Exam Simulator from OSP.

I would say though that for me personally, the exam was still pretty hard.

I was so happy to know that I passed – I used all the allotted time!

Hope all is well with you and the family (including Mavis).

I’m hopeful that sometime this year, we can continue the in-person networking again.

Keep in touch and appreciate your help as always!


January 8, 2021

Hi Jeff!

Thank you for continuing to remember and assist us even after the course is over.

I took and passed the PMP exam on 16 December at the Augusta Pearson Vue Test Center, and was so happy to be able to test at a center rather than with home proctoring.

Your instruction and course were great, and the Prepcast exam simulations made all the difference.

I hope you had wonderful holidays and that the New Year is off to a great start for you!

Thanks again for everything-

—Faye K, PMP

January 6, 2021

Stay well and safe.

I just passed my PMP. Thank you again for all the assistance.

And I just want to take a moment to acknowledge your efforts in our class for the US Army.  The amount of information you presented is a daunting task and you masterfully delivered.

It made me I feel much more confident about testing and achieving the PMP certification.

Again, Thank you!

I highly recommend Jeff Furman as a teacher and as a mentor. I’ve known Jeff since 2015 when I started a Project Management program at the New York University School of Professional Studies. I have had the pleasure of taking Jeff’s class as part of the program. He is a determined and dedicated professor, who develops inspiring relationships with his students and follows their progress as a mentor and an advisor.

Jeff’s ability to connect with his students and his talent for teaching complex, advanced topics are truly superior. He also wrote books and has numerous publications on the subject of Project Management and PMP Certifications.

I recommend Jeff and his classes without reservation. He is truly a great mentor and a great person.

Hi Jeff–

I passed the exam–so relieved. Thank you, many times over, for all of your help.

It was a classic NYC experience–a train stalled ahead of mine, they searched me at the test center (didn’t get to take in my watch or my good luck charm), and the tutorial didn’t work.
I am so glad–and grateful–that you recommended I keep working on those practice questions (PM Exam Simulator). It helped a lot.

So did your class. So did your homework. So did your grids. Really appreciate all of it.

Warmly and gratefully.

Hi Jeff, dare I say I didn’t think the test was too bad. Must have been all the great preparation. 😀

I’ve been keeping up on my pdus by the free webinars they have on . Really nice that they make it so easy.

If I can make a PMI event, I’ll be sure to let you know. Happy holidays! Sarah

Dear Jeff,
This is Veronica, a lady who attended your classes in 2014/2015. I was living in Switzerland at that time and now I relocated in Austria. After completing the certificate in Project Management at the NYU I studied for my PMP and in 2016 I passed it. I have fond memories of your classes, your passion and your competence.
Now I am looking with great interest at the PM Agile, as it is really reshaping the approach to Project Management. Since I am currently working for an international organization that is involved in many software development projects that use the agile approach, I would like to learn more about it and believe that the Agile Prepcast by Cornelius Fichtner could be a good choice. Indeed, for my preparation to the PMP exam I used different courses and books, among which was the Project Management Prepcast and really enjoyed the podcasts. From time to time I re-listen them to refresh my knowledge on the different PM topics.
Well, these few lines were just to say thank you for all your suggestions and for the pictures of your beautiful doggo 🙂
I hope to be able to join one your classes again next time I travel to NYC.
Best regards, Veronica

Good morning Jeff,

Just dropping a note to let you know I passed the PMP exam yesterday. Thanks for offering the study session last month. It really helped.

Thanks, Abel

It is truly a taxing exam which demands a lot of focus and time.
Thank you for your instruction and support at NYU.
Warm Regards,

Your program really helped give me the confidence and tools necessary to take the next steps.

Being able to sit down with consultants and C suite team members and speak both the agile and waterfall lingo was critical to getting this job.

If I can help you with anything along the way or augment a class in any way please do not hesitate to reach out.

Thank you again, best wishes to you and the family.

—Phil J, Director, Process Improvement, Large Medical Company


Hi Jeff,

Heading into the new year I have been reflecting on the past few years and all the success I have had since taking your course.

I am confident that without your class and PMI I would not have reached my current position as a Vice President for one of the largest construction management firms in the world.

I want you to know how deeply grateful I am for your teachings and wish you health, happiness and prosperity to you and your loved ones in the New Year.

I would love to give back to the next generation of PM’s.

Thank you and all the best!

Hi Jeff,

I’m so happy !!!
Last night’s class was great. Those cupcakes were so delicious. I have a good feeling about this class, the group of us too.  Some of the girls and I were remarking how much we will miss Monday and Thursday classes with you but feel good about the test.  I really felt that with the class overall I got so much out of it. Interestingly enough this last homework was my favorite. I can’t stress enough the value you bring to our lives with all of your knowledge and support. We all see a mentor and friend in you. It’s great. Kind of sad it’s over but with PMI events and the like we will stay connected.
Will talk to you soon. Thank you for reviewing my work. I really appreciate this.

January 22, 2018
Dear Jeff,
I am writing to let you know that I took and passed the PMP Exam today.  It was pretty tough but completely manageable because of your great class and the PrepCast.  I constantly reviewed my notes and memories of your lessons while studying.  I was able to apply and assess my learning immediately using the PrepCast for mock exams and quizzes.  Ultimately, the study and practice combined to earn Above Target in all five Domains on the real exam.  I attached my results because they are as much a reflection of you as they are of me.  I could never have gotten anything like this or even passed the exam without your insightful teaching and the ability to practice tests.  Again, thank you so much for the excellent education and access to practice materials.
—John Z, PE, PMP

H Jeff,

I passed the PMP exam today!  I’m beyond thrilled.

The highlighting feature was super useful, as was the “cross out” function that allows you to cross out answers as you’re reviewing them on screen.  I used the “marking” function as well and had about 20 mins at the end to go back and review some questions.

I really cannot thank you enough for such a great course, advice, material, and support.  I really hope to get to a PMI event soon and work to keep up my PDUs 🙂

I hope this finds you well!  Stay warm and have a very happy new year.  All the best and with so much gratitude.

Hi Professor,
… Thank you for leading a fantastic class. From day one, you set such a welcoming tone. You made each class interesting and entertaining, and broke down the concepts in a way that was easy to understand. I’ll be recommending your class to any of my friends and colleagues who decide to pursue the PMP. I actually just told my former boss, now retired, all about the PMP and he expressed regret that he didn’t know about it earlier in his career. Thank you for everything. Best, Liz

Thank you

Hi Professor,
I just wanted to let you know that I took the test yesterday for the PMP and I passed! I got Above Target overall! I was so happy and relieved because the test was really tricky!

Dear Jeff,
I just wanted to mention that everything I have learned in the class is immensely helping me, and I’m glad I have the opportunity to immediately apply what I learn in class. You’re an awesome teacher, thank you so much for your help so far.
Best regards.
— Deepa
October 11, 2017
Jeff, I just wanted to drop a personal note and tell you how deeply grateful I am for the opportunity to take the course from you.  Your subject matter knowledge, the high quality of the book you’ve written, your enthusiasm for the subject, your availability to the students, your extensive real-world business knowledge, and finally and perhaps most importantly, your warmth and sense of humor, made the class a huge success.  Whereas I was dreading the thought of Sundays at 9AM (I don’t even start work M-F until 9:30-9:45), you made it a real pleasure and highly informative.  You kept us on our toes, you’ve challenged us to think beyond the exam – I just can’t thank you enough.
And on the personal level, you are just a very kind and decent guy – and I really looked forward to the class, there was none of the expected drudgery I anticipated on Sunday mornings.  You kept things rolling along to such a pace, I could sense you having to catch your breath at the end of each day.  That’s REAL dedication.
Now that the class is over, I look forward to seeing you in-person again at functions, and keep up the momentum. I look forward to telling you first when I’ve passed the test:)  Thanks for your superb dedication to us Jeff.
— Ray

October 11, 2017

Hi Jeff,

I’m happy to report that as of noon today, I can now add PMP after my name.  It took me one year in total to finally get into gear and to take the exam.  What a nerve-racking experience, but well worth the feeling of belonging to the elite group of PMPs.  I spent the past three weeks literally sleeping with the books in the bed with me.
Thank you again for all your guidance and support and I look forward to seeing you again at the PMP events.
Kindest regards, Vanessa.

Hi Jeff! I wanted to let you know that I passed my CAPM exam yesterday (first try). Thank you again for the awesome class in April!

— Sam F

Hi Jeff:

Pleasure meeting you last night @ your presentation at Fordham on the PMP Exam (for #PMINYC).
Your charisma and energy was very inviting.
— Irvin

Hello Jeff,

First of all, I would like to thank you for the book recommendations and advice you gave to me last year!

I decided to start an in-person course, here in Rio de Janeiro, to prepare myself for the PMP

and last week I did my test and passed the PMP test! I’m so happy!!

Thank you very much for you support! Your classes at NYU definitely helped me a lot and opened new horizons for me in relation to Project Management!

I’m an architect, and now I’m looking forward to work with Project Management!

Thank you for everything! You were an amazing professor!

Best from Rio!

— Barbara G

Hi Jeff,
Thank you for an engaging class. It was my plan to take your prep class and I waited until this April session and I am glad I did.

With jetlag and all, up since 2am yesterday – I was able to stay engaged until 5pm. I am so glad for Jennifer, Dana and Sabrena recommendations and positive feedback – word of mouth definitely travels.

Although, I first met you at Susan Cho’s Speed Mentoring Session (at NYU/PMINYC) and you left a really positive and good impression at that time. The group met for 5 or so minutes, short but you were able to share as much information and show how helpful you were then.

Thank you again – your passion to grow PM professionals is apparent in the work that you do.

Hi Jeff,

Many thanks for leading the class in critical path theory and practice. I found the class really useful and it clarified a number of my questions that I had prior to taking it.

As always, your attention to detail and generosity in sharing so much helpful information in the form of shortcuts, templates and resources is sincerely appreciated.

— Paul M

Hi Professor Furman,

Thank you very much for your email. I greatly appreciate the time and care that you dedicate to your students and our success in project management. Thank you for furthering my learning with a detailed explanation of homework question number 7. I look forward to seeing you on April 1 as well.

Hello Professor Jeff,

I had a wonderful time being in your class last Saturday learning this very useful section (EVM) of Project Management. I am learning more and more every time I practice these formulas and your fence example comes in extremely handy. Also, I really appreciate you sharing the tools and reference materials for PMP exam prep.

Thank you and have a good weekend!

Warm regards, Sadia 

— Sadia T, March 2017

Thank you, Regards, Edward.

Dear Jeff,

I passed today!! 🙂 I’m so thankful to you especially for your example, teaching, dedication, and encouragement.  I’m also grateful to everyone in the two study sessions, and my classmates during the Saturday morning course last Spring.
Warm regards & happy new year.
— Leizel V, PMP January 9, 2017


Hi Jeff,

Happy New Year! I hope 2017 is your best year yet!

I actually think of our time in class, and everyone that participated. Your course (Persuasive Presentations For Project Managers) is one of the best I’ve taken. I had to present a number of times and I found that the lessons we learned at NYU were crucial to my success in presenting. On my last presentation at my current job I gave an IT Update to an auditorium full of faculty and staff, and for the next few days I kept getting compliments on how well I did. What you taught us had an impact! 

Thank you.  

— Carlos O, MBA, PMP January 9, 2017



Your answer book is the best book I’ve found that explains Cost. 

(and everything else!)  

— Dale C 



 Thank you, Jeff Furman.  It was an honor to meet you and receive your instruction for that brief period of time (PMP Prep Class, US Army, Fort Hood)

Hey Jeff,

It all worked out and I passed the exam on the first attempt today.

Thanks again for the great class and everything that came with it.

Feedback about the exam and study prep:

– Your class in combination with studying most of my freetime afterwards did not just make it possible to pass the exam but primarily gave me knowledge for work and life.

– The simulation software from Cornelius Fichtner was a great tool which I used the last 3 weeks to get ready – great recommendation! It helped me to get used to sitting 4 hrs answering 200 questions in a row without a stop button, and to get very familiar with how the questions are asked. Further it enhanced my knowledge base. The way the questions are designed in that simulation software is similar to the real exam, even though I had the feeling today that the actual exam had slightly tougher questions. Reason being the 4 possible answers frequently seemed to be much closer to each other – which means it takes an extra thought to pick the right one.

Have a good one!

Best, Robert

— Robert E, PMP



Hi Jeff,

I passed the PMP yesterday! I can’t believe it, as I thought it was indeed pretty  tough, and wasn’t sure how things were going to go!

It was your book (and classes), Andy Crowe and Cornelius Fichtner’s PMP simulator that primarily contributed to my success.

Thanks for everything and now on to satisfying the PDUs!

Warm regards.

— Nichele G, PMP

Hi Jeff,

Well…I passed the PMP exam yesterday morning.

Thank you for all your help and guidance.

Hi Jeff,
I passed the PMP test today 🙂
Thanks for the awesome class and all of the great pointers.  It really was a huge help with passing.
— Matt T, PMP

 Hi Jeff,

Thank you very much and I appreciate the class, the interaction and the extra time you invested after last week’s class.   With your way of instructing it connected the dots and made things understandable.  The space between the class allowed for reading and preparing for the next day of class, which I think is the best way of having a class schedule setup. Those 5-days-in-a-row training classes can’t transfer as much knowledge as with having a week time in between to process the information <like your class>
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday.
— Robert E


Dear Professor Furman,

In this holiday season, I wish to express to you my sincere appreciation for your great help in the past year.

May the holiday spirit be with your family today and throughout the New Year.

— Bohong C



Dear Jeff,
I want to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving and thank you for your time these past few Saturdays.  You really are a great instructor.  As hard as it was to come in on some beautiful Fall Saturday afternoons, your enthusiasm made the time go by quickly.  In practice, project management has many unexpected turns and twists, however in the classroom, it could potentially have been a very dry subject, but you made it exciting with your real life experiences and passion.
I hope our paths will cross again.
— Catherine S

Hi Jeff,

I wanted to let you know that I took the PMP exam yesterday, and I passed! It took me a while to get signed up for the exam since I took your class in April-May because my application was audited. I wanted to let you know that your book and homework assignments were great study resources. I used your book both when I was preparing for the CAPM a few years ago and <again now> for the PMP.

Now that I’m done studying, I’m hoping to have some more time to attend PMI and agile events in the NYC area. I hope to run into you at some of those.

Thanks again for all of your help!

— Elizabeth D, PMP


Hi Jeff,

I hope all is well.

Very interactive learning environment and I felt OK getting up to give my presentation, which was REALLY difficult for me. Jeff led the whole class in supporting me, so it was much less terrifying.

— Anonymous, NYU SPS Course Evaluation – “Persuasive Presentations For Project Managers”

Jeff is the best teacher I’ve ever had and I wouldn’t have taken additional classes had he not been my first instructer at NYU.

— Anonymous, NYU SPS Course Evaluation – “Persuasive Presentations For Project Managers”

Professor Furman has a very collaborative style that enables his students learn and grow in a safe environment. He is a true teacher that helps his students progress professionally through his coaching, and provides great ideas and insights for the class. He also does a great job of tailoring key ideas to each student so they internalize them and progress.

— Anonymous, NYU SPS Course Evaluation – “Persuasive Presentations For Project Managers”

Hi Jeff,
I passed the PMP this past weekend. I couldn’t have done it without your courses and advice.
With very best wishes and many thanks,

— Joanne S., NYU SPS PMP Prep Course

From project management trends, to available certifications, and preparing for what interviews may ask,
I can mark that milestone complete. These are extras I got out of your class, in addition to preparing for my PMP.

— Nick A, NYU SPS

Prof. Furman is engaging, master of the material, an excellent communicator. Absolutely loved how hands-on and practical this class was with the everyday life scenarios the Professor tied into the lectures and assignments. He’s so engaged and keeps the course relevant to the class’s dynamics. This motivates our class to participate and stay engaged.

— Anonymous – Course Evaluation, PMP Prep – May 2016, NYU SPS PMP Prep Course

— Liseth C, email, PMP Prep Class, Spring 2016

5/9/2016 Thank you for a great class. We were all talking about how we didn’t want it to end. You are amazing!

— Theda, PMP Class – Email

Hey Jeff, Did I happen to mention I passed? 🙂 Love the two books you leverage in class (PMP Prep, NYU), yours and Andy Crowe’s.

What I did find (about the test is that one must know the content YOU teach; the materials you teach with and offer to students were the best study materials hands down. e class was right on point. And I learned a lot and will be a better employee 🙂 or boss or PM 🙂

— Paul R, PMP, NYU

Thanks again for a fantastic class. I’ve never retained so much so easily!

— Alyssa F., NYU

Looking forward to my next class with Jeff Furman. What an investment into your future!

— Ellen F, PMP, Linkedin (after PMP Prep course for US Army)

I put the presentation skills you taught us into action this week when Guest Speaking for another instructor at NYU. I think it really paid off! Thanks.

— Doug H, Persuasive Presentations For PMs class at NYU SPS

You are a great teacher. I wish I had taken your course a long time ago.
I’m convinced I would have earned my PMP stripes long ago.

— Jose B., PMP Prep Class, NYU

Hi Jeff, I took a class with you at Fort Campbell (US Army) in 2012. I ended up getting my CAPM on the last day of your class and after finishing my undergraduate I had to study for the new version of the PMP which I was successful in achieving in 2014. Your Answer Book (The Project Management Answer Book) was instrumental with me studying and achieving it on my first try. I hope you are doing well and congrats on your new book.

— Chase S, PMP, ITILv3, Linkedin (after PMP Prep course for US Army)

I also want to say how refreshing it was to to discuss controversial topics, especially as it relates to police brutality or minority treatment. There have been few times during courses I’ve taken in the past, where I didn’t feel a sense of ‘otherness,’ this was one of the few. So thank you for creating a safe and inclusive space to discuss today’s racial climate as it relates to ethics. I give your awareness of social/racial issues an A++. Keep up the amazing work!!!

— Jasmine S, PMP, Email – Ethics In Project Management class, NYU SPS

Thank you. It was a great class and pleasure learning from you.

Hello Jeff, I wanted to formally thank you for the PM Intensive For Construction Professionals course this week. I appreciated the pace, the energy and the extra time you spent answering questions – I found it very informative and engaging. It would be great to keep in touch moving forward. If I explore other courses through NYU, I will look for your name to use as a deciding factor!
Thank you again.

— Chloe G., Email

You are a stellar person. On your write-up for NYU (course eval) I basically said ‘their course is YOU.’ That they can not do anything to improve cause you are the PMP Prep Test Master and that the material can not be covered or taught or explained more thoroughly.

— Paul R, Email

The learning materials Jeff personally prepared were greatly appreciated and helps with studying. Plus his communication with students in between classes is wonderful.

— Student – PMP Class March 2016, Course Evaluation

Mr. Furman is an outstanding instructor. I couldn’t be happier with the choice I made in taking his PMP class.

Thanks so much for the class; I learned a lot ☺ Hope to see you at NYU again!

— Patricia T., Email

Jeff, Thanks so much. I enjoyed the class a lot. We have started using the principles already in our team.

— Dorothy D., Email

Jeff is an extremely talented and skilled project management trainer. He is extremely intelligent, delivered the course material in a comprehensive and easily digestible manner, facilitated engaging class discussions and assigned exercises that brought the content of his classes to life. He is a consummate professional in his field and used current events, his real world experiences as well as his student’s experiences to teach his curriculum in a way that made learning both enjoyable and retainable!

I was a student in Jeff’s NYU SPS Persuasive Presentations for Project Managers class as well as his Ethics in Project Management class in the summer of 2015 and truly valued the high-quality level of expertise he brought to the subject matter and the sense of duty he exhibited when helping his students. When you have the good fortune to be a part of Jeff’s network you discover that his students are well supported and that he always makes time to answer their questions and in many cases helps to nurture and mentor their educational, networking and career paths.

Not only do you learn the content of Jeff’s classes when he is your instructor but you also learn about the project management community and related organizations as well. Jeff is a dynamic and savvy connector; he keeps students up to date on the latest project management news and events in the NYC area and advises them about monthly special events, gatherings, trainings and how they can attend. Jeff not only uses his talent to teach his students but also to network people and organizations and is a well-respected and important part of the project management community at large.

Among his countless accomplishments, Jeff has written a 5 star book on project management, contributes his knowledge to the latest webinars, publishes valuable content on top-notch project management websites, has created and published training activities, onboards new students to NYU at open houses each semester, is always available to his students and offers mentoring seminars for the PMI NYC chapter. He is a mover and shaker in the project management community.

If you are afforded the opportunity to be Jeff’s student or the ability to partner with him in any way you will certainly enjoy a fantastic experience with a knowledgeable, supportive and innovative professional! For more details feel free to contact me via LinkedIn, I’m happy to act as a champion for Jeff any time! – Angela

​Hello Jeff,

Attached is my final homework assignment for Ethics in Project Management Spring 2015. Thank you for all of your insight and an engaging class that helped me understand and define ethical concepts and standards more clearly.

I have two more project management courses to complete before receiving my NYU Certificate in Project Management. Thank you for your course – it truly was insightful and gave me a solid foundation to reference when faced with ethical issues.

I hope to see you again as well and hope to attend some PM events in the future. I am definitely considering pursuing the PMP and will remember your prep course.

Thanks again for all of your efforts and time in teaching us and promoting our network within project management.

— Danielle

Really appreciated, thank you so much for sending the info and the links. I will definitely look into them and will try to take advantage of that free pass for sure. Hope to see you as well!

I did not get the pleasure to meet you, or be taught in your class here at Fort Bliss, but I did want to say Thank You for all your assistance.

Thank you for your service to the Armed Services.

— Elijah G

Hi! Thanks so much for your support! I think I needed the confidence and knowledge boost your class gave me to get through that exam. I finished at 2 hours and 45 minutes… even better than my last half marathon I ran! lol

… I have been on cloud nine all week about passing. Everyone at work has been making me feel like a rock-star. I’ve been getting high fives, hugs, and congratulations. I walked outside and someone yelled “PMP” at me, and another worker started clapping and cheering.

— Jennifer

Jeff, I wanted to let you know that I just passed my PMP!!
I also want to thank you for all your help! Your class was very informative and really gave me the extra push I needed to focus my study and prepare for this exam. It was not an easy test, but, without your class I don’t think I would have passed.
I hope things are going well for you in NY, and also hope that our paths cross again some day.

— Alicia, NYU

Thank you again for your lots of sharing and passionate knowledge sharing. The book is great too (The Project Management Answer Book, 2nd Edition). The Q&A way of organizing is novel, efficient and impressive. The best way to read a book is to have questions in mind so I really like it. I hope I can meet you tomorrow evening at the PMI NYC networking event. I believe it will be fun!

— Yang, NYU

Thank you so much for everything. It was a pleasure to be in not one but three of your classes! You really are a fabulous teacher and all the students have nothing but adoration for you and your teaching style. I also can’t wait to receive my Certificate in PM from NYU!

Thank you so much for an amazing class. I really enjoyed learning the basics of project management and I am definitely researching further classes to pursue at NYU. This is just one stepping stone to so many possibilities and that is truly exciting!

NYU ETHICS IN PM – Collected quotes from my students (Summer 2013)

“Jeff’s ability to recount and apply his real-world experience is great, and a real differentiator in this class.”

“Great class, great instructor. Well worth the investment!”

“The homework was actually fun to complete and enhanced the learning. I thought the in-class activities were great also.”

“Professor Furman is a great teacher who knows how to engage his students.”

“Professor is very knowledgeable and keeps the class going with the exercises and handouts. Motivates the students and class goes very quickly. Allows the students to interact and express opinions. Excellent course for NYU to place on their choice of classes.”

“Excellent. Great mix of content, and the ability to draw on real-life examples from classmates works. Appreciated that he learned everyone’s names quickly and got everyone talking and engaged. I am very impressed with his knowledge of the subject, and appreciate all the shared resources.

“I am so happy that I took this class and the professor played a great role in making the course interesting. Jeff gave real-world industry examples that will be very helpful in the future to resolve ethical issues.”

“I especially liked the in-class exercises and how the professor really made you think outside the box. Also liked the tools for the exercises (handouts of real situations happening in industry, and how to analyze ethical versus unethical.”

“We talked through many scenarios that PMs face. I also found the books very relevant and useful for future reference. Great class!!”

“Professor Furman is very experienced and a great educator. I would love for him to teach more PM courses. He is respectful of his students, and his students return the respect.”

— Collected comments from the students in my Ethics In PM class, NYU, Summer Semester 2013

Jeff was my professor for the continuing education course “Ethics in Project Management” at NYU. He inspired me with his breadth of knowledge in Ethics and career experience and his ability to bring the textbook material to life. He is the kind of teacher who can think on his feet and teach a whole class around a recent Ethics article, and he was always willing to spend time after class discussing our careers or professional aspirations. I got much more out of this course than I had hoped, and saw my creativity and insights at work grow.

Hi Jeff, I want to thank you for a memorable journey in my life’s career. My colleague and I (classmate in Presentation Skills class, March, 2013) passed pass our written exams and hopefully will pass our videos. Thanks for the support and motivation.

— Vicky P., Senior Trainer, University / Hospital, Baltimore, MD

Jeff can’t take the PMP exam for you, but he will equip you with all the tools necessary to pass with flying colors the first time including PMI best practices and test strategies. Jeff went above and beyond the requirements for the class by providing tactical templates that you can adapt for your organization as well as guidance on how to fill out the PMI application. I would recommend Jeff’s class and book to anyone trying to balance work and passing a notoriously tricky exam on the first try.

Jeff is extremely passionate about Project Management, education and ensuring his students can and will be the best they can be. His down-to- earth and friendly demeanor make Jeff an extremely approachable instructor who is open to and is stimulated by great discussion and debate! It was a few weeks since I had finished my PMP Prep course with Jeff, until my exam date, and I was more than thrilled that Jeff was available at any time during those few weeks to support, assist and coach me on how to study effectively for the exam. I truly admire Jeff’s style and enthusiasm and highly recommend anyone who needs a prep course to reach out to Jeff. You too will only benefit from his generosity and talent!

Jeff Furman – A person who inspired me to break down further into the area of Project Management. I was a student of Jeff’s at Netcom in his PMP class. I must say that he is an exceptional speaker, very easy when it comes to explanation on hard matters. I learned a lot from him as my teacher and also as a person. I am very thankful to him for that –because of him and a few others like him I am able to stand where I stand right now. Thank you so much Jeff, Ashish P., CAPM.

I attended the PMP preparation class that Jeff instructed and found it to be informative and educational. While these types of prep courses tend to be dull – Jeff kept the class lively, interesting and plied us with clever retention tools that made it easy to retain information for the exam (which I passed 1 week later). Jeff also manages to stay in touch with his students and continues to be a valuable resource and ally for me. July 13, 2009

Jeff’s knowledge of the project management curriculum is vast and his teaching style is personal. He can be very specific with advice on PMBOK and beyond. It’s those specific, real life examples that I find useful from instructors of all kinds. I’ve also found that the ability to arrive at creative solutions is essential and Jeff possesses that ability. I’ve done well as a practicing PMP following his instruction.

Jeff was my professor for the CompTIA CTT+ course. Jeff is an excellent educator who changed the way I thought about public speaking and teaching others. Within the short timeframe of three days, he helped me eliminate my weaknesses and completely change my mindset with regards to public speaking and organized education. Thanks again for your help Jeff. Hopefully one day I will be a student in another of your courses (perhaps PMP?).

Jeff Furman is a natural-born educator. His explanations are clear and well delivered, and his comments and criticisms during one-on-one coaching are spot on and well received. His course (Presentation Skills toward the CTT+/MCT) is the best I’ve ever had, in value per dollar, positive classroom experience, and the quality of the content.

I have the pleasure to make this recommendation for Jeff Furman. Although, I had know Jeff for a very short time, he was willing to reach out to our PMI group to lecture on “Cost Management” based on PMBOK. Jeff demonstrated great interest and care for what he was going to present both before and after his session. He had follow-through with answers about the overall PMI project management methodology and demonstrated that he understands and can deliver any area within the project management discipline. Thanks Jeff.

— Frank B., PMP, Service Delivery Manager / July 20, 2008, Linked In

Jeff takes his profession very seriously – while maintaining a personable attitude. He is an engaging communicator and solicits participation from all the people in the room. He has a wealth of real-life project management experience that he uses to illustrate key elements of the training program. He stayed at least one hour every evening to work extra with those who had missed a portion of the class during the day. After attending his class, I only spent an additional 10 hours at home and then passed the PMP exam on my first attempt. His teaching techniques gave me a tremendous amount of value – both in terms of knowledge and saved time.

— Hans T., PMP Project Manager / July 10, 2008, Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, Expert, Linked In

Jeff taught our PMP class. He genuinely cared about each and everyone of us. As a teacher, he never tired of answering our questions over and over until we were satisfied with the answer. He freely gave of his time to help us; coming in early, working through lunch and staying late to give us one-on-one extra help. Even after the course finshed, he was available to us via email. I would definitely want Jeff to be my teacher in any further management classes I might take, and I look forward to reading his informative articles on project management. His teaching awards were certainly well deserved.
