Hi,

Starting this thread to understand more on the reasons for poor performance on Initiation & Closing Process groups.

I have read some of the lessons learned where test taker mentioned about bad performance in these two groups.

These two process groups are small and considering PMBOK/Rita /Exam Simultaor in the study plan, can there be any other information that get missed and we end up with low performance.

I personally think that, many people (myself included) tend to underestimate these two groups because of the low page count.

Generally, there are a few ways to improve your score:
-Reread your material - PMBOK, Rita, PMI Exam Outline (for me, 4 times)
-Lots of mock exams

Let us know what your study method you've tried, perhaps we can help you find the root cause and tailor a strategy for you.
