Just completed my PRINCE2 Foundations 3 day course and did the exam a few days later and pass with some room to clear. Thanks to the lecturer, he made the content accessible to everyone who attended no matter their experience. All materials and tools where made available to us, and where easy to use and follow. Cannot recommend highly enough the Institute of Project Management.
