I am now nearly fully dedicated for studying, and I am going as per the following:

1. Completing about 4-5 episodes every day,

2. Spending 2.5 hours for each to have full understanding,

3. Review related concepts using on-line resources (Brainbok.com).

4. Try to memorize ITTOs.

Note: I am unable to do more. I completed up to "Plan Risk Management". My exam is scheduled on 28 Jul.

After I finish all Episodes, I will take the Head First Full Exam Sample to asses my level:

I read only the first 3 chapters of the PMBok.

Appreciate if you have any feedback or advise on performance.

Tarek.

Tarek,

This looks like a good plan with one small exception. The PDF document from O'Reilly is outdated. The questions in this document are based on the PMBOK Guide 3rd edition. (Many of the questions are still valid, but many are not. And it's probably too difficult for you as a student to determine which are OK and which are not.)

I recommend using a different and more current practice test.
Until Next Time,

Thanks for the reply.

So, I will do this sample test, since I already printed it:

www.oliverlehmann.com/contents/free-down...Sample_Questions.pdf

But, a couple of persons from the forums discouraged me to use the above sample from Oliver since because they are very difficult, and I will be turned down.

After I complete the free sample test, I will go for one of the commercial tests.

Appreciate your feedback.

Tarek.
