I sincerely felt I was ready but just realized I was not in all aspects. I got above target in the people domain and flunked the others. How do I ensure this doesn't repeat itself? Please Help:( :(

Opsy,

What was your study plan like over the last few weeks? We’re you taking practice tests and quizzes on an exam simulator? Which materials were you using? I’m happy to provide you with the study plan that I used if it will help, but need to know what your baseline is first. Keep pushing, you’ll get it on the second try!!

Yes I used an exam simulator, had some classes and also read the PMBOK. I think I do not really understand the domains. How to I up my processes and business environment skills? I do not know why I keep missing them: what do I need to do differently. I want to take the exams again really soon, I just need to know what I am missing. Thanks so much.

Hey so I just passed 3AT and my advice would be to really look at the breakdown from the simulator. After you nail down which areas, I would take learning quizzes and only use material you have not seen yet to really get a clear idea. Every area I was under 70% I hammered questions until 75%. I took the practice exams (all 4) 66% 70% 67% 73% and then retook practice exam 1 a week later after my quiz regimen which usually included groups of 50 questions in the specific area. The fifth and final practice exam (retake of exam 1) I scored an 84%. I reviewed what I missed from it because a little pissed I couldn't ace it. But the next day (today) I took it and passed.

Hello Folks,
Thanks for sharing your experience and the discussion is helpful too.
I'm just a few days away from my exam and very focused on the simulator. Out of 2100+ questions from the simulator how many questions are good to cover. With very limited time at hand, I'm hoping I could cross the 1400 mark at the max.

To share I have completed one Practice Test with a score of 80%. Several learning and timed quizzes. Overall 700+ questions with exam feedback of 74%.
I have seen there are folks covering almost 2000 questions from the prepcast and still finding exam questions new, this really makes me nervous. I'm hoping I could reach the 1400 mark maintaing my 75% mark and still fare well in the exam.

-Abhi
