This list shows all the tools and techniques mentioned in the PMBOK.

While it is not likely, be aware that you may encounter tools and techniques beyond this list in the PMP exam. And there are, of course, many tools and techniques that are beyond the scope of the PMBOK but that are well-known to specialists.

Use the alphabetical key pad to quiz yourself. Click on the names of tools and techniques to see which process they are associated with. Note that in a small number of cases the PMBOK does not make an explicit association to a process.
