I took my exam yesterday. Finished the exam in 2 1/2 hours and thought for sure I had failed. But I passed with all Target or Above Target!

I viewed all 60 hours of the PrepCast Videos.
I studied Rita Mulcahy's Book
I studied How to Pass your PMP on Your First Try by Andy Crowe
Took every PrepCast simulated exam
I googled certain topics I was unsure about and read blogs, etc to help me understand better

I believe taking the simulated exams prepared me the most. And more than taking the exam, I reviewed each question - whether right or wrong - and read why the answer was the appropriate one.

Thank you Cornelius Fichtner and PM Prepcast!

Good luck to anyone else preparing for the exam.
