Hi,

So I am about a month away from sitting for the PMP Exam(Oct 27th) and have been studying diligently for the past few months. I have started using the Prepcast PMP Exam Simulator and take a practice exam once a week and then review each question, to reinforce what I got right and better understand what I got wrong. My results so far : 1st practice exam: 83%, 2nd 78%, 3rd 91%. In addition to using the exam simulator I have been reading the Rita Mulcahy prep book 9th edition(on my 3rd read through) and study flash cards each day. I plan on taking a practice exam each week up until the exam and reviewing questions. I also have been practicing my dump sheet and have all the formulas memorized( I practice writing it down each day). My question: Is my study plan likely to see me through the exam or are there some other things I should be doing?

You appear to have a strong command so far. Keep it up and keep taking practice exams.
I would say you seem to be strong enough to pass the exam, according to your practice scores. Keep in mind that you strive to stay well rounded in all areas as some folks have failed even with high practice scores.
You look to be in good shape.

Nathan, you’re way out front and doing great. Relax a little too. As for me I still like the flashcards to review while drinking a cup of tea.
Best Wishes

I agree with Ty and John. You are in great shape.

Keep your edge by continuing to take practice tests. Pace yourself, you don't need to burn out.

After each test, analyze your results to see where your weaker and review those topics. But I think you can go at a fairly relaxed, measured pace at this point.

Best of luck!

Thanks everyone for your feedback and advice. I will keep doing what I am doing but maybe program in a little more down time, don't want to be burnt out going into the exam.
