Materials: PM PrepCast for contact hours, Rita (1 readthrough), PMBOK 5 (1 readthrough, review), Achieve PMP Exam Success (used to identify missing concepts), PM Exam Simulator (4 complete tests taken), Crowe (only opened when used in prep class), PMI-OC Prep Class

I focused on chapters as presented in prep class, then followed with 4 complete exam simulator tests (average score 85%), followed by exam post-morten to identify weak concepts. My exam had 10 EVM, 2 EMV, 5 PDM questions (thankfully) so know EVM and decision tree analysis . Also had 2 communication analysis questions. Lot's of situational questions asking about next steps in project.

Same for me, passed the PMP on the first attempt.
Materials/Prep Tips:
Read PMBOK cover to cover (highlighted concepts)
Read Rita cover to cover (highlighted concepts)
Then focused on 1-2 Chapters per week (until all were covered): Read Chapter in PMBOK, Practice Questions, Read Chapter Rita/Do exercises in Rita, Practice Questions.
Created my own flash cards on main terms,
Took all the Practice Tests in the Simulator - used scores to study weaknesses - The 6 Tests were just enough.
