I passed PMP exam on 21/07!! :) It was really amazing feeling to see: above target score in all three domains!!!
I strongly believe that Prepcast material and Exam simulator were my keys to success and I will tell you why.

1. I used the following materials:
- pmbok 6th edition and Agile PG
- rita's M. book 9th edition - questions and some concepts that are not covered in PMBOK and it was really useful source
- PrepCast Course - amazing course, really appreciate hard word you've done to prepare it. The content is explained in easy way that you understand all material without a problem. Cornelius gives a lot of examples of real life situation explaining the processes that afterwards become are very clear and reasonable.
- PrepCast Exam Simulator - my favourite!!! The best tool to make you feel more prepared for real exam because it has scenario-based, situational questions that really helped me out to figure out not only the best answer for the exam, but also put in practice theory I have studied

2. Taking the exam:
I must say that I was quite nervous even though I was preparing for this 3 months. I have 2 tips from my side to manage better exam itself:
1) Monitor and manage your time very carefully. Even through I took two breaks, questions from 1-120 were a really difficult ones for me so it took me more than expected to answer them. After the second break I had only 50 secs per question so I was getting very nervous, especially because some questions are long and I needed to read them crefully two times beforse answering (caused by stress of course)
2) I used two breaks provided to gain a little time to calm down, rest for few minutes, drink water, recharge batteries to be ready for next 60 questions. I highly reccomend it! 4 hours exam is really exhausting so use both of them. I avoided this way thing called "exam fatigue" when you are so anxious and exhausted that you even don't care about the final result and I fighted til the end. Take a deep breath and don't give up! :)
The real exam is a little bit harder tham exam simulator because a lot od questions are made to confuse you, can have more than two correct answers so I wasn't so confident about the final result.
All the questions were situational, real life situations, scenario-based and what PM should do next, etc.
I passed it thankfull to the all PrepCast material and especially, Exam Simulator that gave me a great "gym" for the real exam.
