Dear Friends,

I am happy to report I passed my PMP exam today (1st try).

The test was difficult, but I found it easier to pass than the PrepCast practice exams.

What worked for me was a combination of PrepCast, PMBok, Lots of practice tests and memorization of the process map and key EV formulas.

I took 5 full practice exams and at least 10 shortened exams prior to the real exam.

I used a brain dump sheet to draw up the PM process map and key EV formulas.

Total time from beginning of study with PrepCast to exam was 7 1/2 weeks.

PrepCast is not only one of the best training programs on the market, it is one of the most affordable as well.

Thanks Cornelius!
Mike

Yuga,

I would estimate I spent 5-6 hours per day. Also studied on weekends.
