I'm up to Project Quality Management in my studies. I've spent a lot of time on the Project Time Management and Project Cost Management areas. The one thing everyone has mentioned, to include the PrepCast videos and the Coaching materials, is the need for taking practice questions.

While I agree this is a good way to get used to the PMP exam, I also find it somewhat deflating when I take the section exams and come across questions that have nothing to do with the section just completed. For example, I may be studying the Project Cost Management area and the questions are asking me about Procurement or Risk management. When I get my total score for that test, it's not good. I'm wondering if others have sensed this or is it just me. I love the PM Precast Video. I'm also using Head First for my other materials along with PMBOK (this is the dryist book I've ever read).

Thanks for the support.

Thank you for this feedback! I'm glad you are liking the PrepCast, but I would like to look into the problem you have indicated with "unrelated" questions showing up.

Can you give me a few specific examples? Maybe you can tell me specifically that "Question #4 and #12 in the Quality self-assessment are not related to quality". That would help so that we can zoom in on those.

Appreciate it.
