Hi there, Unfortunately I used Measureup to prepare and failed. PMP does not provide you % but looking at the report they sent after exam, I can roughly say I failed with 77.5%... I studies 5-7 hrs we day, 5-6 days a week for weeks and still failed. I thought that if they are certified Microsoft partner then they would have right content to prepare people for the exam...but i was wrong.
Now studying with Prepcast, hopefully will pass on my 2nd attempt. exam is on June 12th.
What really hit me off my feet that the structure of the questions in Measureup was different from the actual exam, so till I got the idea how the questions are structured I was half way through into the exam already...

Hi Alex, Thanks for sharing your exam experience. Dont worry, analyse your result based on the process groups and create a study plan. BTW, were you able to complete the exam on time. How long you took to complete the first part of 89 questions and the rest. Your experience may help others a lot.

Hi Deepan, thank you for encouragement. I actually took linger to complete 89 questions because the 1st 30-40 minutes i was spending a lot of time to understand the question, i had to reread it several times as the structure of the question was different from MeasureUp. and I also got disappointed when i realized this, so it took me longer. After 10 min break I was a bit under stress knowing that i spent more time on 89 questions and now i have to go through the rest 110 faster, i had around 200 min for all these.
Hope it will help someone.
I rescheduled my exam for 11th and then, if I don't pass again, I'll try to squeeze the last attempt before they take the exam off line 1st of July. That's why all this running...
Thanks everyone,
Alex

If I am not mistaken the current exam has been extended until the end of the year, so you should have more time in a worst case scenario where you need to retake it.

Thanks Alex for your response, can you verify your response again. "You had 200 minutes to answer the 2nd part with 110 questions left". I presume its a typo and it must be 100 minutes. please clarify.

Hi there,
Yes, it was a typo. Basically what I was trying to say is that I had same amount of minutes left as the amount of questions because I spent more time on the 1st part. E.g. I had 110 questions to answer in 2nd part and almost same amount of minutes...
Hope this clarifies.
Apologies for confusion.
Regards,
Alex
