Dears,

I'm 5 days away from exam; could you please advise me what I need for last revision? I can't memorize ITTO at all. Only formulas because I understand them.

I got range of 76% to 81% in 5 exams in PMP exam simulator. I start to feel those are easy !!!

In oliver 75Q I got 67% and In Oliver 175Q I got 74%!!!

I'm not sure if I'm now ready for the exam with the new outline or not!!!

Could you please advise; as I start to feel I'm not confident!!!

The most important thing is to relax - a stressed and nervous mind can make more mistakes. I'm sure you'll do great!

What I did in the final 4-5 days before my exam was to find as many exam simulators (credible ones) and go through as many of them as possible. During the last 3 days I spent the first 2 finding even more simulation exams but not actually taking the exam but rather just submitting it and going through the answer keys to make sure I understood and agreed with the answers. if I didn't, I knew what to review.

The day before the exam, rest and practice creating brain dumps. Time yourself. Go over notes or flash cards that you may have created during the course of your preparation at a high level. it'll remind you of all the key concepts that you may have started to forget. Get a good night's rest, and finally, go in and conquer that exam!

I took my Exam the past Monday April 18th. I was not feeling confident and questioned my readiness a few days prior as well. I had a thought of changing the date, but then realized what was the point, in prolonging this. I agree with Yasir and his comments. The best thing you can do for yourself is to be well rested for exam day. I only spent a few hours, the day before, reviewing notes and practicing my brain dumps. Shut it down early the day before relax and get a good nights rest.

Think positive, and Good Luck to YOU!!

Dears,

Thanks for your reply; I just passed my pmp today on my 1st attempt. Exam was not easy 99% situational questions.

I can't do it without your exam simulator... but hoestly the exam is more tricky than any simulator!!! formula is 5 to 7 questions... 3 EVM & 2 PERT & 1 EMV simple!!!

Nothing related to 2016 new updates content... just more situational with more too similar answers stakeholder, risk, procurement!!!

Ready now for agile certificate... but still thinking scrum master or PMI-ACP!!!

Congrats! If you take the PMI-ACP exam then CSM will be a piece of cake. They both go hand in hand so I'd recommend taking both, really. if it's a financial constraint then CSM might make more sense as it seems to be more widely recognized.

congrats!
any advice you can give? I hope to sit in the next 2 or 3 months. What book did you use? Any did you do a boot camp, online videos or just the prepcast? Did you use just OSP's exam sim or did you use another? Did you do any coaching?
thanks and sorry for all the questions!
