I understand, but if you wan to write the exam you have to keep at it. Read the questions you failed do some analysis. Get the PMBOK guide and go the page referenced in the answer keys. Make notes stay focused. You got this

Hi Olubukola, I feel your frustration. I, too, was getting 50 - 60% on my 10 question quizzes. I had skipped most of the videos, however. So I went back and watched all of the videos. I also prepared my own Excel spreadsheet where each Knowledge Area had its own tab, and each tab had all Process Groups for that Knowledge Area, showing all Inputs, T&T's, and Outputs for each Process Group. Use the beginning of each Knowledge Area Process Group table in the PMBOK for your notes. For example, for Project Integration, do not use the table on page 71 - use the tables on pages 75, 82, 90, etc. Also, make sure you incorporate graphics (like page 47, 155, 267, etc.) from the PMBOX into your notes - if it weren't important information, they would not make a graph or picture out of it! Then when you watch the videos, capture the additional KEY information and tips that are not in the PMBOK into your notes. Once you have a good study guide, then keep reviewing it. Then memorize the difference between Project Management Plan components vs. project documents (page 89) and the chart on page 25 and be able to do a brain dump of that chart on page 25 in 5 minutes. If you can do that, then you should be able to immediately recognize in the questions: what Process Group are they in; what actions are they doing (i.e., Knowledge Area); and what are they asking for (a process, a document, etc.). You should then be able to spot quickly the answers that are wrong. This helps in getting you to the right answer, unless you immediately know what the right answer is!
