Hi Radhika,

You can check the lessons learned forum , you will find plenty of experiences shared from other members who have passed the PMP. I am sure this will be very valuable while you are preparing your plan.

I would also recommend that you evaluate the www.pmstudycoach.com . I didn't try it myself but Cornelius's products are usually of great value.

I used 4 months to prepare while working full time.

Month 1 - 35 Contact hours - PM PrepCast, PMBOK - Tried to understand PMI mind map (Process groups vs Knowledge area table) for the certification
Month 2 - Got a thorough understanding of the of 47 processes and how they interact, some ITTOs.
Month 3 - I got audited and things slowed down a little bit (worked on my audit package):), more ITTOs.
Month 4 - 17 full-length simulated exams of 200 questions each, random practice tests online.

Hope this helps.

Hi Radhika,

My study plan included the PM Prepcast and Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep book. I used the PM Prepcast to get my 35 hours for the application as well. I also read through the PMBOK as I reviewed the study materials. The PMBOK has some really nice summary diagrams which really helped. I also took a couple of full practice exams on the PM Exam simulator and tracked those areas that needed improvement. I gave myself 6 months to prepare. Hours of study varied each week. I was able to pass the first time around. Hope this helps and good luck!

Hello Radhika!

Warning... shameless self-promotion coming up... ;)

Instead of gathering many study plans from others and then analyzing and synthesizing them for your own purposes, you could simply follow our best practice approach. I have developed a general Study Plan & Coaching approach.

You can find it at www.pmstudycoach.com .

Week after week, this program tells you exactly what to study. Over 200 students have used this approach in the past year.

Hi Radhika,

What timelines are you looking at? How many hours can you put in a day? When are you planning to take the exam? If you can provide further such details then I think we can suggest a study plan.

I had three months to study with one hour on weekdays and six hours on weekends. For further details you can refer to my post:
