Student Profile: Satishkumar Ganesan, PMP
I am Satish, working in the software industry for the past 15 years. I started as a .NET developer and moved to different roles before settling for Project Manager. I have managed projects from India(offshore) and USA(onsite). Having done the job at both locations pose a great advantage since I am able to think the terms from every end. PMP® was my dream from the beginning of my career. Achieving it through PM PrepCast was easier than I expected. Thanks to Cornelius's enthusiastic voice that keeps ringing in my ears even after I am done with PMP.
How important do I think it is for new students to read the official PMP Handbook from Project Management Institute (PMI)®? I would rate reading the entire book as optional. However, it is best to keep it handy to refer. Reference is the best way to make sure we are on the path with Cornelius's words.
I recommend that students do in the last week before the exam is to concentrate on their confusions. I had a list of questions that I usually mix up in the exam simulator and get it wrong. The last week was devoted only to those questions. The study mode in the Exam Simulator is helpful a lot than anyone can expect. I would recommend everyone have a list of the type of questions that they get wrong mostly.
