Student Profile: Joe Singer , PMP
Project Manager in healthcare IT – various levels of roles over the last ten years. An avid runner, found running off the stress in preparing healthy and helpful.
I would recommend all new students to purchase the PMP handbook and read it to familiarize oneself with the formal principles. Do not try to memorize it – let the OSP program and practice tests assist you.
Over the week, get plenty of rest and don’t stress. I recommend taking the time to go through one last full practice test session (the four-hour version) from OSP. After taking it, review all the answers (right or wrong) to understand the answers.
Again regarding stress, don’t overly worry about the OSP simulator results. Although it’s no guarantee as to success on the actual PMP exam, I personally found the OSP questions much more difficult than the ones on the actual exam. OSP definitely set me up for success - 5/5 Above Target on the PMP exam while doing ‘marginally ok’ on their practice exams.
