Hello Everyone, I passed my exam yesterday with Above Target over all, and at Target in Iniating and Closing, with Above Target in the rest.

I prepared mainly using Prep Cast Videos, Test Simulators and PMBOK. Referred to Rita Mulcahy for few topics. When giving the test simulators, I identified my weak areas and practiced using learning quizzes repeatedly until i was confident in that area!

Some of the exam questions, as others mentioned, were vague and mostly are about what PM would have done differently in a situation. Some of them are pretty straightforward.

The lesson learned is to just keep practicing in the weak areas and the PM simulators are very helpful. Most of the exam questions were like the ones in simulators, so worth buying them.

Congratulations. I have my exam coming on January 4th. Sincerely yours, I am SCARED but I know many have attempted on a first try and passed and this is the only confidence I have. I admit I am not prepared or seem not prepared but I have a busy schedule. I may miss out completely if I do not attempt the exam on Januray 4th, as my expiration is April.

Guys, from your comment " identified my weak areas and practiced using learning quizzes repeatedly"
what is learning quizzes please?
