I'll keep this short and sweet.

PMP Exam Pass date: August 8th, 2015
Total study time taken: Approximately three months
Study routine: four to five days per week, two to three hours per day
Materials used: PM PrepCast, PMP Exam Simulator, Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep, PMBOK
Overall study method, in order:
- Completed the PM PrepCast (Approximately one and a half months)
- Completed reading of PMP Exam Prep (Approximately two weeks)
- Completed reading of PMBOK (Approximately two weeks)
- Summary review of PMP Exam Prep and PMBOK (Approximately one week)
- Final week: Rita's chart memorization, formula memorization, brain dump sheet memorization

The PM PrepCast was easily the most important component of my PMP Exam study journey. Although the PM PrepCast takes quite a bit of time to get through, it is one of the most thorough walks through the PMBOK available. The only downside is that I now hear Cornelius Fichtner's voice narrating everything that I do. Hahaha
