So this is what I did to pass the exam:

Took the PMP Boot Camp through Global Knowledge to give me a foundation.

I booked the exam 6 weeks the day after I finished the GK course. This forced me to study a little bit every single day. Some days it was 2 hours others it was 15 minutes but I did something everyday.

I took Joseph Phillips Udemy course because I wanted someone like the Global Knowledge instructor to explain the process to me again. This was a waste of time as I needed to read something to help me understand the process. More on that in the next step.

I tried to read the PMBOK but I read one sentence and said forget it, this is not for me. The was the last time I opened the PMBOK. I went back and reread the GK notes. This helped. I also wrote down and memorized all 49 process and their key outputs. Once I learnt the processes and their outputs things became much easier. If I didn't have the GK notes I would go out and buy Rita's book. From what I have seen it does an amazing job at explain the processes and how they fit together.

I paid for the PMP Prepcast exam simulator. The exam questions are worded exactly like they are in the simulator. I also tried to do a few full 200 exams that come with the simulator. I ended doing 2 of them but in total I did 1200 of the 1600 questions. The one thing that made me worry at the end was that I was seeing a lot of the questions over and over again and I had remembered what the answer was. In the end I think doing all of those practice quizzes/exams helped with muscle/brain memory as you can see by my marks. I would highly recommend it. By the end I was getting between 70-90% on exams/quizzes.

Went and wrote the exam. Was just like the Prepcast questions. Thought I failed but got AT in all 5 process groups. Spent the whole fours with two minutes to spare. I took no breaks and sat there for the whole 4 hours. I did a brain dump for the calculations and process but not the key outputs. This would take too much time imo. I was done at the 3 hour point but then went back and reviewed the 60 to 70 questions i marked for review. This took almost an hour. Changed many of the answers ( I would say around 25-30 questions or so).
