t was a big relief...and would not have done with out the support of the family, specially my WIFE..
She played a very big role in the moral boosting and motivation

I scored Proficient in Planning and Monitoring and Controlling and Moderate Proficient in other areas.

It took me 2 months to prepare, every day 2 hours and on week ends 10-12 hours.
Though in last week more then 10 hours a day.

My Lessons Learnt.

Study Material Reference:
2. Head First -2
3. Rita Mulachy 6th edition.

Started with PMBOK, read it once.
Read Head First and Rita 2 times.
Then in the last week PMBOK.

I focussed on understanding ITTO's rather then the memorizing.
I did not took any paid exams, though did a lot of free sample test.
Giving or practising test give a lot of boost to my self confidence.

Exam Experience
I was very nervous at the time of exam, marked more then 80 questions for review.
My questions were a lot wordy...though could not find any on professional responsibility.

I took first break after half an hour to calm my nerves, and took 2 more after every one hour.
Also brought some snacks with me, which i took during exam, this helps as the exam is exhausting.

Completed first shot in 2 and half hour then went through my marked review questions.
Reviewed around 120 questions towards the end in the remaining time afterwards

Conclusion : Its ok to mark questions for review , and do not worry if a lot of questions are marked for review.

Cornellius dally questions and prepcast for preparing and approaching the exam were really good.

Best of luck to every body
