I am happy to inform you that I passed PMP exam with 4P and 1 MP. I studied for 10 weeks, sometimes for 4 hours and sometime no study for 1-2 days. I was a bit involved in this forum that really helped me to prepare well.

I referred below:
1. PMBOK (80%)
2. Rita (20%)
3. PM Simulator all tests (Average score 91%)
4. Additional Free mocks on web
5. ESI – CRC press ( to gain confidence for difficult questions-though few questions not from PMBOK and very few errors)
6. My Own -ITTO in excel, list of concepts in 1-2 lines from PMBOK, few diagrams I created using tools at work (very helpful in relating concepts)
7. PM Prepcast - watched few videos( no classroom training)

I suggest that we should start giving mock exams early along with short exams, ideally after reading PMBOK 2 times. Also in actual exam I faced tougher exam questions than in Simulator, but they were few.

One thing that bothered me during exam was big size of fonts and very big display monitor and not very comfy chair. It happened with me that as I progressed with test my performance increased, so don’t be surprised if you find initial questions difficult just mark them but try to read them. Also bring snacks, water for exam and prepare for 2 breaks.

I am thankful to PM Prepcast and their team.

Congratulations! I'm impressed with your simulator average score, that must have improved your confidence going into the exam not to mention the action of going through the ITTO on your own.

Thank You.
I have attached screenshot of my ITTO format and a sample diagram, hope it helps. I used these primarily to relate concepts.

Regards,
Puneet
