Please remember that you are not allowed to discuss any specific questions that you encounter on the exam.
Passed on first try this past Friday. I will be brief for the sake of brevity.
1) Took Walter Wawruck's prep course (about 80% of my studying... it's a lot of material and focuses on understanding and assimilating the information, not short-term memory capture... very conducive to PMP questions).
2) PM Prep Cast (for listening while driving, another 15%). This was very valuable for summarizing content from Walter's course.
3) Memorized the 42 processes in the PMBOK (another 5%). If I had more time, I would have taken the time to better understand the tools & techniques, because those questions were probably my weakest performance on the test.
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.
