Hello all

i passed today. 3 times above target, altought during prep I never achieved more than 72% (and mostly even below 65%).

I don't know if it was my lucky day or the real exam is much easier than the sample questions...

Neverthless I needed the full 230mins and did not even have enough time to review all my questions.

Good luck to all others

Elias,
Congrats! What study materials did you use? How was the new process far as the mandatory breaks after every 60 questions? Did you see a lot of Agile questions? Did you take all the full mock exams on the simulator?

Congratulations ! Its a great achievement.

Apart from PMBOK and Agile Practice Guide, did you use any other materials? Did Precast exams help you?

How long was you preparation time, any challenges on the exam day?

Hello all,

Sorry for the long answer time. To prepare I used a mix of the following
- PMBOK and Agile Practice Guide (Did not even read through the full book)
- Udemi PMP Course
- PM Prepcast (Did 2 full tests)
- Youtube Videos

Overall I would say I have spent 40 hours (of which 3/4 I spent during the last 14 days before the exam)

But as mentioned.. The questions in the PM Prepcast were much more challenging then the real questions..

Now overall I even would say I spent too much time on studying as I was a bit scared due to all those misleading comments à la: Oooh Its sooo much content you need to study soo much, it is very difficult. blabla.
I have around 10 professional certifications (most in Security or any IT related topics) and I can say PMP was one of the easier ones.. at least for me.
