Over the past year or so I have read Rita's Exam Prep a couple of times, taken the questions at the end of each chapter (scored btw 60-75%) and I read the PMBOK guide once probably two years ago. Finally last week I decided that I am going to take the exam and scheduled my PMP exam for March 21st. I have time on hand since I lost my job recently, do I have enough time? With the time constraint, what should be my focus areas and approach?

Here is my plan:
1) Finish reading Rita's PMP Exam Prep one more time by March 8th
2) Take the PMP Exam simulator Mock up exam on March 10th
3) Work on weak areas, take the 2nd Mock up on March 14th
4) If I don't score over 75% in the 2nd exam, I'll reschedule my PMP exam by 10-15 days

It is indeed possible to pass the exam "very quickly", but I advise against it. Please read the following article:

I would have to say it is possible but highly unlikely that you can do this in 15 days. I spread my reading and studying out across 4.5 months. The chapter questions in Rita's book do not represent real exam questions. The PM Prep Cast tests are very real.
