I purchased the PMP Coach Sessions in early April and it works great. I honestly am committed to studying the PMP, but my local chapter just started their 6 week program to review for the PMP test. I went yesterday and it was great. The problem is what I am learning in the Prepcast is not synced up with the class. Should I start over in my studies? Also the class ends on 6/19, I take my test on 6/22? Should I allow more days to prepare for the PMP exam?

Any opinions would be great. I really want to get this completed ASAP, especially since the last day to take the exam is 8/31.

Since The PM PrepCast is built in a "modular" way, it should be relatively easy for you to look at the curriculum of your class and decide which videos to watch. So what you can do is to watch all the Cost related videos in the week leading up to when cost will be discussed in your class. In that way, you will arrive fully prepared to the class and you can use the time in the classroom for a review of the material and to ask questions.

I also think that it's too early to tell, if you need to postpone your exam to after 6/22. Continue your studies, answer as many sample questions as you can and decide around 6/10 if you yourself think that you need more time or not.
