I have rescheduled for Jul 30 since the exam is changing. I went to boot camp -- it didn't help. I hoping using the questions will help prepare me. Do you have any other advice? I work so I can only study at night and on weekends. :( :(

Hi Susan, I am planning to take the exam around same time end of July. If you like you can give me your contact information including email so we can discuss our weaknesses in KAs and all.

Susan,

My recommendation for students who are re-taking their exam before the end of the month is clear: Take as many sample exams as possible. Practice. Practice. Practice. If you went to a bootcamp then you probably have the knowledge inside of you. The one thing that may be lacking however, is the ability to translate this knowledge to correctly answer questions.

And of course by using the questions in our PMP Exam Simulator (I assume that is what you mean by "questions") you will be able to learn a lot and prepare yourself, give yourself a boost and retake the exam.

Cornelius, Are you saying it is better to spend most of time taking sample exams as many as possible than reading the PrepCast chapter videos?

Malcolm,

The closer you get to your actual exam date, the more you should focus on answering questions and getting additional practice in the simulator. Compare yourself to an athlete who has to run a certain distance (i.e. answering 200 questions in 4 hours). The closer you get to your "event" the more you should practice that "sport".

I never thought of it that way. That is a great analogy. I am not going to let this test get the best of me!
