I would like to share my experience. Cleared my PMP exam 3 days ago. I attempt only 4 simulation. If you're getting good scores then don't wait, just give the test.

Regarding the real test - much harder than the simulation but honestly don't waste your time memorizing anything.

1. no direct ITTO questions.

2. 99% questions were situation based. What should be done in a particular situation. Most of my questions were mix of 2 knowledge areas and the biggest challenge was first to identify the knowledge area.

3. Tons of questions were on CLOSING phase/project. You should know the order. example: PM should first find out the impact of a change before submitting the change request.

4. For quality, Rita's book with help you identify the keywords to identify the quality tool.

Good Luck.

Which book did you suggest to study along with simultor. Some one suggested me PMBOK but it seems to be too dry to read along.
Please advise
