Hi,

I am a new member and I have just started my preparation for the PMP exam last week. Can someone guide me on how to formulate a plan to study for the exam.

I have below mentioned three resources for PMP preparation at my disposal and want to make best possible use of the resources

1.PM prepcast from Cornelius Fichtner
2.PMP Exam preparation by Rita
3.Head First PMP

I was unable to arrive at a relastic and effective plan. My plan is to study 3-4 Hrs on a week day and 8 Hrs in a weekend.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Chandra

Chandra,

There is no "default" plan that you can follow for your PMP exam. Some people have to study 2 hours daily for 10 weeks and others decide to study 3 hours for 3 weeks and then go for the exam. It's a highly individual journey.

Two recommendations:

1) Download and read my free ebook: The short Guide to becoming a PMP at www.project-management-exam-guide.com/. This is also available as a series of free videos on YouTube.

2) If you are looking for a ready made plan that can help you, then try this here www.project-management-study-coach.com/. I've had many requests from students like you that asked for a plan, so I've created this approach. It may help.

But in either case you are going to have to adjust your approach based on your own needs. Why don't you start with your 3-hours/8-hours plan do your studies for a week like that. Then after a week has passed you will have some experience and you see how the first week went. Now you can adjust your daily hours and tweak your approach.

Cornelius,

Is this still a valid link? www.project-management-exam-guide.com

I'm having a hard time downloading the ebook.

Thanks.

Hi Cornelius,

My apologizes for not explaining in my earlier post.

When I go to this link: www.project-management-exam-guide.com, It asks for you to fill out your information below and click the orange button to receive the Short Guide.

There is no information to fill out or an orange button using IE 9.

Jennifer,

Fascinating... I just tried if with FF, IE and Chrome. It works for me on all browsers. I'll have our technical team do a research.

The guide is attached to this message...
