Student Profile: Shehzad Anwar Khan, PMP
A medical graduate, I am a public health specialist working in the humanitarian sector. My association with UN Organizations and with my current employer, International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) spans over a decade. I always felt that I needed to accomplish the prestigious PMP certification. I achieved the milestone in September this year. The journey does not end here. I intend to excel in the field of Project Management through continued efforts in academics as well as learning from my peers. To me the experience in the field, is essential to my success.
Every exam has its own pulse. The secret in PMP certification lies with the PMP handbook from PMI. I made the mistake of not reading it for my first attempt. The examination software judged that within the first half an hour. I had to re-appear. The second time, I made sure that I had read it at least twice. As Mr. Fichtner rightly says, we need to study it rather than read it.
What do I recommend that other students do in the last week before they are scheduled to take the exam?
Last week is crucial. I suggest that the momentum should build up. I would suggest is to practice as many mock exams as possible during the last week prior to the exam.
