Hi Team,

I have 2 days to take my PMP exams and am not feeling confident. My scores are dropping instead of increasing.
From 79% at the beginning to 67% at the end

I always run out of time as well

Any Advice, please. Thanks

Hi Eve

I understand your situation. First, it's important to determine how confident you are about the content of the study and preparation materials and second how confident you feel about your experience and application of this to the exam areas. Leaving aside the practice exams for a minute, take time to self assess where you are without reverting to a cramming or relying on temporary memory knowledge of the materials. The exams are one indicator of readiness and often the scores may not necessarily reflect your knowledge of the content, based on the questions in the practice exams. You need to be as calm, relaxed and ready for the exam knowing that your preparation was sound and your knowledge base of the materials is solid.

Hi Eve.

To add to what Chan has said, please review my lessons learned on the link below as I initially also had a problem with time management. The link explains how I overcame that hurdle and passed the exam. I wish all the best in your exam.
