Expecting The Unexpected Can Help You Prepare for PMP® Exam

man expecting the unexpected as he prepare or pmp examAs the saying goes: “Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. Keep this in mind as you prepare for PMP® exam. It simply means that you should not solely depend on what others say about their experiences in taking the exams. Everyone's experience is different.

What you must remember at all cost is that you have prepared well for the exam and that you can do this! When you walk through the doors into the exam room, the most important thing for you is to pass the exam. You can partially achieve this by preparing yourself physically and mentally for the event. After the exam everyone has a story to tell. For example, one of my students wasn't allowed to change any clothing and the other one wasn't allowed to use the bathroom. These examples are of course extreme but they might happen to you.

So what if something similar happens to you? Take a deep breath. Listen to this "odd rule" that the testing center staff is informing you of. And then follow it. Don't jeopardize your chances. Play along and do the best you can. Adjust yourself mentally to the situation and work with it.

Remember: What really matters is that you relax, concentrate and pass the PMP® exam.

Don't blow your chances of passing the PMP® exam and earning your PMP® certification by failing to prepare for exam day logistics. Here's what you need to do before the exam and on exam day to make sure you're ready mentally, physically and logistically.
