I took the test the first time this past August with these results:

Initiating - needs improvement
Planning - below target
Executing - target
Monitoring & Controlling - needs improvement
Closing - needs improvement

Today was my second attempt and I scored:
Initiating - needs improvement
Planning - below target
Executing - target
Monitoring & Controlling - target
Closing - below target

If anyone has any advice on studying tips and techniques for the 3rd attempt please let me know. I don’t want to burn myself out by the 3rd attempt.. I’m also unsure how soon to reschedule since I work full time.

I was using Rita Mulcahy’s prep book to study the material as well.
Thanks in advance.

Did you use prepcast exam simulator for practice exams?

Hi Areeba,
i advice you to concentrate on the PMBOK , read it well , understand it well , then start with the simulator , 2 exams for example, define your weak points, and re-read again where you are kneed improvements ,
one source i found it very important , you should memorise and understand the sequence of the tasks mentioned on the pmp exam outlines ( you can ddownload from pmi SITE)

best wishes for your next time
