Student Profile: Khurram Iftikhar, PMP
I have gone to the next level after leveraging all the experience I have earned while working with multinational and local companies. In the last few years, I was more on working with projects and recently into management. PMP helped me lot in gaining standard project management knowledge and international practices. Not only project management knowledge but it has increased my confidence, vision and enhanced leadership skills which now I am enjoying applying to my daily work routine.
I would say that passing the PMP exam without reading the official PMI Handbook is going to be an almost impossible task. Without solid understanding of material in the book, one should not imagine earning PMP. OSP Podcast and Simulator take it a leap ahead and helps cement the concepts in PMI handbook into our minds.
Practice, practice, practice. This is the most realistic advice when in the last few days of your PMP preparation. See explanation for wrong answers at least, if you are not up for looking at all the answer explanations. I have learned quite a lot by looking at explanation of all the answers provided by Cornelius Fichtner (OSP), both for the exam and in practical application. Add Oliver Lehmans' two exams in the last week of your preparation. Everybody has a different experience when sitting for the actual exam, and for me it was more difficult compare to the OSP simulator but simulator helped me a lot in dissecting the real questions and select the right answer.
