I first started studying for the PMP exam in fall 2022 then life happened. I rescheduled it 1-2 times. I took it yesterday morning and scored "Above Target" on 80-90% of the exam.

Lessons learned for me was setting aside time when I was most able to absorb information or read the PMBOK guide. I woke up 1-2 hours earlier than everyone else in the house, made myself some coffee, and reviewed my material. I listened to the PrepCast like a podcast back to back last fall, then this year, I watched the videos at 1.25% speed, while reading the book. Seeing and hearing the information multiple times helped.

Another thing I did was I also got on YouTube and would watch snippits from other trainers just to see what they said on various topics.

Not sure if this was what I was supposed to say on here, but if I can help anyone else, let me know, within reason and within the bounds of the PMI ethics code, of course.

Hi Craig, Congrats on passing! What a great relief and accomplishment it is that your hard work paid off!!

Do you know the % or breakdown of questions that you experienced on the exam? Were they mostly Agile/Waterfall/Hybrid or did they have an equal amount of distribution on the exam?

Also, in your opinion, did you see questions similar to the PrepCast or the PMI Study Hall (if you took it)?

Thanks,
Saba

I feel that all 3 were well represented on the exam equally. You need to pay close attention to the wording to determine which was being referenced.

It was a lot of situational questions which was like I saw on the Prep Cast and accompanying exam simulator. I didn’t use the PMI study hall.
