Sherif,

Very sorry to hear that you failed the exam. Can you provide more information about your study plan, exam preparation etc..? It is difficult to advise without knowing more details.

Thanks,

Mark

Hi Sherif,
You aren't alone, I failed previously too and I know how it feels. What I do it, I try to shake off the bad feeling ASAP and come back to beginning point again.
As most tennis players said "One point at a time". I am still studying and preparing for the next attempt when I am ready.
I would say "Don't give up!", if PMP certification is really what you want.
Regards,
Annie

Hi Sherif and Annie,
It's good to have company. I have failed twice and was going to give up after the January change; but, as the saying goes, "third's a charm".
Some folks are better CBT test takers, some people get short ?'s on the PMP. Both times I had very long paragraphs and a lot of formula and critical path diagrams to draw. Sometimes test nerves take over. There can be a lot of factors.
Since you used Fast Track and took PrepCast twice, you were beginning to get repeat questions. My only advice would be to review missed and correct questions, understand exactly what was right and what wasn't and why.
On a different note; I had to pass 7 exams to become a licensed Architect. I passed 2 of 7 1st time, 3 of 7 the 2nd time, [email protected] and the last one 4X. :cheer:
Take a breather, dust yourself off and, as Annie said, if you want it...Go for it and don't look back! :)
All my kindest wishes and best of luck.
Debby

Hi Sherif,

Although I passed the PMP on my first try, I had a strategy in place just in case I failed. If I failed, I planned to continue to study at high volumes to prepare for taking the exam 2 weeks later. I recommend doing something like that...keep your information fresh and build on it prior to your next exam...Here is a link to my lessons learned..www.cornelius-fichtner.com/index.php/art...ichael-sumaquial-pmp
Also, I think 70% passing rate on your sample exams are too low; 79-89% range on practice exams are optimal. Hope this helps. You can do it!!

Best,
Michael

I am curious to know if you answered the fastrack questions from the cd or just the questions in the book? I am on a very similar studying plan you were on. It is discouraging to see that you got a few BPs after answer over 3000 questions. I am so sorry :(

Are you finding that Rita's questions are close to the real questions?
