Please remember that you are not allowed to discuss any specific questions that you encounter on the exam.
I started studying by going through all the videos and that, I felt, laid the proper foundation. I then read Rita Mulcahy’s book and I think that was easier to digest because I was already very familiar with the subject matter. I then came back to the PrepCast Test Simulator prior to the test. After determining my weakness, only then returned to those sections in the PMBOK.
I have a fellow PM here at work that has a serious test phobia and I've been telling her relax and schedule the test as soon as she can. Schedule the test as soon as you’ve met your requirements because the half-life of this material is quick. It wasn’t as hard as I thought but it is long. I cruised through the first 100 questions and then started to get fatigued. I really struggled through the last 40 – not that the questions got harder, I was just tired and started to question my
initial answers. I actually did change several marked questions, which goes against some prescribed test theory...but I think it's more because later questions reminded me of things.
The PrepCast simulator questions were a bit harder than the actual test. That caused some undue stress; however, they help you focus on
what you need to learn better. My mistake was waiting until a couple of days
before to take those tests and I never sat through a whole test. The simulator should be used for acclimating and training to the length of the exam; I highly recommend the PrepCast and Test simulator. Cornelius’ structured delivery of the subjects helped train me to figure out PMI’s structure. The PrepCast and Test Simulator were both truly fantastic learning aides. Thank you, Cornelius!
