Hi All

I passed PMP Exam with Above Target in all areas in my First Attempt itself.
I only spent 1.5 months of preparations by spending 3 hours on all work days and extra hours during weekend (I had prior knowledge on Predictive part). And I have gone through Andrew Ramadayal Udemy PMP 35 contact hours.

One week prior to exam, I did lot of quizzes and Exams using only prepcast Simulators. So far I did 76% of questions in Prepcast and an average scoring of 75%. I never did any other mock exams or quizzes at all except Prepcast.

I really rate Prepcast 9 out of 10 for maintaining their simulator upto the mark with high quality. Two things I understood from my experience.

1. Study 30% and Mock quizes/exams 70%. You need to try lot of scenario based mock quizzes if you really need to understand and obtain the mindset on Predictive/Agile/Hybrid.

2. For me, I took notes not only for the incorrect answers, but also I spent lot of time to review all my correct answers while using the Prepcast Simulator. This helped me a lot to get the right insights and gain the mindset what you need for exam.

On exam day, I didn't get any questions on ITTO and no big calculations/formula based questions. Very few simple CPI/SPI etc. Mainly questions are focusing on your understanding and mindset, servant leadership, people management, Agile, Hybrid etc.
