I passed the PMP exam on the first attempt last April 08, 2019 with an overall score of the above target (4AT and T on executing). I used the PM Prepcast course, PM simulator exam, PMBOK, and Rita Mulcahy’s PMP exam prep as review materials. I spent 9 weeks for my review preparation (2-3hrs during weekdays but the last 2 weeks I increased my time answering, reviewing and analyzing the simulation exam).

I can say that the PM exam simulator is one of the factors for passing my exam. Its harder than the real exam. The best part of this is the explanation of the answers for each question. It helps me understand how to select the best answer for each scenario.

During the exam day, I arrived at the testing center 1 hour ahead of my schedule. While waiting for the check-in process I have a little conversation with one of the staff of the testing center and tell me to relax because of 95% who took the examination passed the exam. It boosts my self-confidence. After a very strict check-in, I started the examination and I finished the first pass with 50 minutes left on the clock without answering the EV (4-5 questions), PDM related questions and about 15 marked questions. I stick to my plan that I need to finish 60 questions per hour to accommodate the review for the marked questions on the remaining time.

After a short survey, It was a mix of emotion when I saw the word congratulations appear on the screen. What a relief!!

I would like to thanks Mr. Cornelius and the rest of the OSP International team for offering this kind of products. It’s a game changer!.
And to those who will take the exam sooner. Good Luck to all of you.
