hello there,
I am preparing for PMP.
Currently using Prepcast, Rita's book and Head first and ofcourse PMBOK in conjunction.
I am moving forward chapter wise from all simultaneously and obviously its taking lot of time.
I am looking forward for suggestions from people on the forum for their guidance and help so that i can understand if i am doing the right thing.
Another question i have is regarding practice questions. I am looking for additional practice questions chapter wise so that as and when i finish up a knowledge area, i can practice enough questions in that area to clear all understanding.
Can someone suggest any good resource. I am willing to pay for it.
I have purchased the simulator but those are full length exams with everything in it so i am keeping it safe until i finish all knowledge areas.
Looking for help, suggestion and guidance from fellow aspirants and from admins and moderators and people who have cleared the exam and of course from Mr Fichtner :)

Thanks in advance,
Praveen Chandra

Hello Praveen,

Regarding finishing one chapter simultaneously from all your books, I personally don't recommend this as it would be very lengthy and it wouldn't be adding much value. what i recommend is to leave one or two references for revision and review, example below:

1- Read the head first book (i recommend to start with this book as it is easy to digest and the way it is written helps to memorize things).
2- Skim over the PMBOK guide parallel with watching the prepCast.
3- always take your notes and keep them up to date.
4- use Rita's for the final reviews
5- take simulator exams(make sure to review the weak points after each exam so that you always score better in subsequent exams).
6- use your notes and brain dumps for reviews during the simulator exams and for the final review before the real exam.

www.amazon.com/1000-Challenge-PMP-Questi...ations/dp/1493531840


also the PM Exam simulator offers free 3 days trial. you can give it a try, I have seen many people writing very positive feedback about it.

Good Luck.

Hi Praveen,

Have you taken a look at our PM StudyCoach? It is a 10-week long course, which comes with supplementary study materials, in the form of videos, podcasts, worksheets, articles, as well as reading and homework assignments.
