Happy to say that i cleared PMP exam on first attempt with 4 above target and 1 on target (closing). Ofcourse, the prepcast and study group we have formed with other active Prepcast users helped a lot.

Exam questions are pretty much the same as prepcast. I found it a little bit more tough in the exam mainly due to the length of the question.

My approach during the study is as follows.

1. I read Rita only once. In my view, it is too wordy to read more times, especially when exam date is approaching. I read PMBOK approx 3 times. I found PMBOK more straight forward and quick to review and check.
2. I did first 25% of the Prepcast questions as untimed ones and later on all are timed tests ,except during group study. I recommend to reach 80%+ in the full test and 75% + in the aggregate sample test questions. I think i played safe but i was still nervous to hit end button and see the result.
3. I targeted to finish one question a minute, so it is easy to track the clock and you will get few minutes in the end to review the marked questions at the end.

Hope this helps..
