Hello,
i've watched most of the PMPrepCast videos and read some PrepBooks (German and English). I feel 'almost' ready for the PMP exam. I would now like to take the next step and complete the PMP application. I have read some tips to fill out the application on this forum and elsewhere on the internet and I've written down my experiences accordingly. It would be great, if I could get a feedback from you guys :-)

Oliver,

As long as you clearly meet the requirements outlined by the PMI to sit for the PMP exam, you should be fine. I didn't add up all of your hours but you should be close to the 4500 required hours of project manager experience. I highly recommend you inform your past employers of your decision to sit for the exam; if you are audited, they will want to know why PMI is contacting them for information about you.

Start looking at developing a study plan. Here's a sample one I created to help out PMP candidates: www.amazon.com/Setting-Your-Exam-Study-P...rds=steven+mudrinich . Good luck!
