Take lots of full length practice tests for all 8 weeks. Try as much as to simulate the same exam environment. It helped me a lot.

I second googlesmart's advice. Taking full-length mock exams in conditions similar to the actual exam (no food/water in the room, no stopping the clock to take a bathroom break, etc) helped me the most. And after each full-length exam, I reviewed all the questions I got wrong, in order to better understand the concepts.

Hi Faiza,

I suggest you go the the Lessons Learned forum ( www.project-management-prepcast.com/kune...exam-lessons-learned ) and skim through. You'll likely find people with approaches that will work well with your personal style. There is a large body of experience there for you to draw from!
