Finally, I can relax for the holidays!
PM PrepCast was a great tool, and, just as Cornelius Fichtner insists, you must know the inputs, outputs and T&T!
I went through the PMBOK three times by the time I was ready for the exam. I also used Rita Mulcahy's and Andy Crowe's books, for covering some topics that were briefly mentioned in the PMBOK. I highly recommend
for simulated 4 hour exams. They helped bring my proficiency level to over 80% for every knowledge area.
I would say you need 200 - 250 hours of study time to be comfortable in taking the exam, so plan accordingly if you have other parallel activities.
Use the process flowcharts published in the PMBOK; they will give you the logical connections between one process' output and another one's input. Also group the T&T into logical areas. For example, Control Scope, Control Schedule and Control Costs all use variance analysis; they all take Work Performance Information as input and they all provide Work Performance Measurements as output.
This interview with Simona Fallavollita (LinkedIn Profile) was recorded at the magnificient Project Management Institute (PMI)® Global Conference 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. We discuss the how, what, why and when of the changes that are coming to the PMP exam.
