I started my PMP preparation in last week of July. Started with PMP prepcast (corlenius) for getting 35 contact hours. Listened to each of his podcast and referred PMBOK in parallel. Couldnt study at a stretch, hence it took more than a month to get through the podcast and 35 hours certificate. While I was preparing, I was attemting various short test to assess my prepartion and was getting very low to average results. So stopped attemting adhoc quizes till I was completely prepared. After my application was accepted and approved (mid september), I purchased Rita Exam prep 7th addition. Went through Rita & PMBOK (2nd time). I was getting 75-80% in Rita chapter end tests. After this round, I gave few mocks to assess my prep. with below scores:
PM Study (free test): 82%
Oliver (175): 81%
Went through Rita and PMBOK once more paying attention to the gaps from my test results. I purchased Rita fast track. Again attemted mock tests with below score:
Rita PMP: 82%
Rita super PMP: 76%
PM Study test4(purchased): 92%
Rita all Knowledge area tests average: 88%
I was pretty confident as I went for my test. I started nervously but was confortable after first 10 mins of exam. Completed 200 questions in little less than 3 hours and reviewed all marked question in another 30 mins. I still had 30 mins, so went through first 100 questions again. Pressed the end option with 30 secs remaining and got the congratulation screen after skipping thru survey option.
Key learning: Understand PMBOK word by word, you can answer all scenarios easily.
