9 weeks total study time.
I started reading Rita but only made it half way through before I started using PrepCast questions and I did take the 6 -week class with one of the PrepCast instructors (Dan).
1-2 hours every day studying and practice questions, 3-4 hours per weekend

I reviewed all the PrepCast material 3 times, then concentrated on my weak areas.

Test had MANY questions that were situational. Only one question involved using a formula (Pert analysis).

I finished the exam with 35 mins remaining so I had a chance to review my first 30 questions.
I did not do a Brain dump, not sure it would have helped me or not.

PM prep cast was essential for exam preparation. I felt like the PMP exam questions were a little longer in terms of words and a bit more difficult than PrepCast questions.

I am and have been a PM for 6+ years so that helped but doing practice questions and studying the ITTOs is the only way you will pass.

Thank you PM Prepcast . Money well spent!

Dig in and just study, study, study.
