WOW I could pass PMP at the first attempt ! I did fully self study for preparing myself for the exam. I fully relied on PmP Bok and free questions from different websites. However, I would like to thank the forum for publishing explanations about different topics which are really helpful for study.

Thank you again.

Hi Pierre

Thank you for your questions, but my experience can be briefed as follows:

1 - I enrolled in PMI in Feb 2020
2 - I started preparing right after my application get approved
3 - I started with reading the pmpBoK , 6th ed first, and it took 2 weeks
4 - Then, I got the latest simulator through Store Play which covers all questions based on 6th Ed,
5 - I used this forum to get through any topic could not be understood in pmpBoK , it was helpful
6 - On daily basis, I used to answer about 20 to 30 questions, and that practice took one month
7 - Before a week of the exam, I conducted a mock exam with 200 questions and got 70%, but it was Ok for me and did not affect my decision to sit for the exam on the scheduled date.
8 - I sat for the exam with full confidence and had feeling that I have the ability to manage it.
9 - The questions were very tough and ALL of them wordy and long.
10 - I answered all questions without revising any of them bcz of time constraint
11 - I got Congratulation for passing the exam.

All my preparations took 80 days.

That's it :)
