Congratulations! Let us know your lessons learned and how our products have helped you prepare.
Please remember that you are not allowed to discuss any specific questions that you encounter on the exam.
I started preparation with reading PMBOK guide only. After finished reading chapter 1 - 4, I realized that reading it alone is not enough for the PMP exam. I then studied Rita’s PMP Exam Prep with PMBOK guide as reference for process overview and ITTO. I then watched the PrepCast video after I finished studying each knowledge area.
I did not memorize all ITTO but make sure you understand each knowledge area before move on to the next. I did memorize the EVM and estimation formulas, know its interpretation and when to apply the formulas, for example know when to use Triangle distribution or Beta distribution and which formula to use for EAC calculation. Only simple mathematic calculations required for answering the questions.
I practiced with the following sample questions:
- Oliver Lehmann free online questions
- all the questions in Rita’s book.
On the Exam day:
I went through the Table 3.1 in PMBOK guide and all the formulas in 15 minutes before heading to exam center.
Know your learning style and plan your preparation accordingly, start as early as possible.
Practice mock exam under timed conditions to get yourself comfortable with the pressure and timing associated with the exam.
Stay calm and concentrate during exam.
Good luck to all PMP aspirants.
