Thanks for the congratulations. It's much appreciated.
As for the test, I would love to give you some feedback. In general, I think that the PrepCast thoroughly covered all of the topics, though I also relied on the PMBOK and Andy Crowe's "How to Pass the PMP Exam on Your First Time."
Taken together, all three were pretty valuable to my passing. Specifically though, I think that the sections on Integration, Scope, Cost, Time from the PrepCast was particularly helpful. I did score proficient in all the knowledge areas so to me that says the PrepCast pretty accurately addresses the topics on the test.
I would echo the guidance on your study plan that it's very important to take as many sample questions as possible. In the last two weeks of studying alone, I answered nearly 2,200 of them which helped me pass.
In summary, I think the PrepCast is great and I can't think of any areas of weakness. It pretty much addresses all of the PMBOK along with the experience of Cornelius, which taken together is invaluable.
Moreover, I will be sure to pass my experiences in the forum to help those studying. I think that it's important that lessons learned and our individual experiences can be shared. Lastly, thanks for the link to the Podcast. I will be sure to check it out.
