Student Profile: Uttam Thakur, PMP
Last 4 years I am managing projects and encounters so many ups and down and changes which feel me to get a formal certification and enhance my practical experience with a Standard practice and follow them which attract me towards PMP certification.
I started looking on Certification a Year back and I Highly recommend to go through PMBOK it give you a basic understanding and platform and a kick start. It is very clear the exam is based on PMBOK so it must be understood.
A Digraphs of process, ITTO, Vocabulary and flow charts are so impressive and clearly explain and tell how each terms are correlated.
In Addition I recommend reference books as well I used RMC, Aileen and PrepCast Essential Study guide set.
And now one of the Big and mandatory Part Practice exam Simulators I used many free Simulators and Apps but main resource was PrepCast simulator. It evaluate your week and strong area and the Gaps in your knowledge and understanding. I used to give a daily test and read the Explanation of Correct and wrong both to understand deep why the answer is best and matchup with my understanding.
PMP exam is completely on your understanding of concepts, so make sure you understand that and answer the Question. One point to understand always answer based on PMBOK Guide concept only.
And last 1 week I increase my Practice session and study time 5 to 8 Hrs and targeted only area where I find a GAP and one day before relax and sleep well I stop my study a day before and just read a cheat sheet and formulas only. (It’s best if you created a study key point note and only go through those for refresh)
All the Best
