Hi all,

I'm going to attend my exam in 4 days, being off from office during these last days to focus on my exam preparation.
I'm using PMBOK, How to pass on first attempt by Andy Crowe, Cornelius's PrepCast & Simulator.

On the simulator my score is still 75% so I feel I need to boost during these last 4 days to reach 80%.
Unfortunately my gaps are spread in many areas (time, cost, procurement, risk) and I can't focus only on 1 or 2 to fill current gaps.

Any suggestions on how to plan these last 4 days effort?

Thanks in advance
Valentina

Valentina,
I think you can do some backwards planning.

example.
Test Day: arrive at test center
Day before: No planned events (let yourself relax)
two days before: comprehensive review of all areas you were weak in, and short review of areas you were strong in
Three Days before: Two simulator (morning and afternoon) review period after each
Four Days before: break up your weak areas into groups (study one set in the morning, one set in afternoon, take simulator exam in evening and review
Yours Respectfully
