Student Profile: Ramlal Pareek
I passed my PMP in 2014, of course, with the help of The PM PrepCast™ lessons.
I am a general manager working in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. After I passed the PMP exam, I also passed the PMI-RMP exam.
My journey on taking the PMP® exam was really tough, but the certificate was not just my motive but also to become a real-time project manager with great knowledge in my entire journey. Before I got my PMP® certification, I took an MBA in projects management, HR verification, a green belt in quality, and complete knowledge of conflict resolution and strong contract knowledge by getting classes for FIDIC and construction law as I am a civil engineer. The PM PrepCast™ lessons helped me a lot to understand topics and definitely passed my PMP exam.
The first thing I did to plan the exam was I read the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) three times to understand all the concepts, inputs and output, tools and terminology, and familiar with all new tools being used. As per my opinion, before going for anything, read the PMBOK® Guide twice and answer 400 questions, and reread the PMBOK® Guide for the third time to fill the gap.
To save time, I listened to The PM PrepCast™ quality recorded lessons' summary while driving in a car, while resting, in the office, or even traveling. I strongly recommend The PM PrepCast™ product, which is really detailed and easy to understand, which really helped me widen my knowledge. So again, the first thing you should do is to read the PMBOK® Guide twice, for this is key to pass the exam.
I also did a last-minute review of formulas and input and output.
On the day of the exam, I took sound sleep, listened to old songs from Bollywood to keep the brain relaxed, and did yoga. I didn't study on exam day.
