Hello Shri Malisetty,
I read PMBOK 5 during my first attempt but since exam changed I had to start all over again.I start studying at my work 2 hours everyday in weekdays and 5-6 hours Sturday and Sunday for almost two months.I read PMBOK and Ritas book in that time and spend lot of time on RMC fast track cloud for over thousand questions.
Then I used my three week maternity leave for studying at the end and all that time I spend on PMP Exam Simulator. Every exam I took for 4 hours I spend 6-8 hours reviewing all the question right and wrong to understand .After few days if I took same exam that I got 60% before it will be around 80-85 in second time.

I hope it helps make Sure you spend enogh time PMPrep cast is really great product.
Good luck to you..

Hello Balaji ,
I didnt had enough time at that time I took 2 days off from work but only studied few hours also I dont think material I was using at that time was close to Prep cast or RMC.Do not rush for the exam if you think you are not ready take your time and try to pass practice exams as many you can those wrong question really make difference.

Good luck to you :)
