The subject sums it all. I was looking out for a job in Project Management and after having read thousands of JOBDs came across one common point - PMP certification. Though I had quite a good Project Management experience, but then not having a certification was not working in my favor.
I was in a hurry. I read through several posts/blogs of the apt time for PMP. Got diverse views but again one thing in common - "PrepCast". Basis my needs - I set myself an aggressive target of completing the PMP in 1 month. Yes!!! I completely banked on the PM PrepCast for the same. Here is my approach
1. Studied for more than 8 hours a day
2. Downloaded the videos on the mobile & heard them at home, driving or waiting for somebody
3. At the end of the day, took a timed quiz to check my knowledge
4. Practiced the ITTOs daily by writing them on the piece of paper - there is no one method that fits all. You have to device your own method
5. Every week take a full length test and evaluate it completely
From the Simulator - I took 4 exams and the score was more than 80% in each (84.5%, 81.5%, 84.5%,86%). I also took the freely available tests online and the scores where more than 80% except once. That gave me a lot of confidence to go for the final exam where I got the below Grades
A few things I must say
1. Listen to our Cornelius Fichtner very carefully. Every word of his means something towards the test you will be taking. Listen, Listen & Listen
2. Prepare for ITTOs. What is very important is to know which o/p becomes the i/p to another process and what are the Tools & Techniques for the same
3. If you consistently get more than 80% score, there are an 80% chance you will clear the test
All in All - I would say my decision to go for the PrePCast and Exam Simulator was bang on!!!!
All the best & Thanks to Cornelius Fichtner for all the help!!!!!
