Hi All,

I prepared the PMP exam in 5 months several hours per week;

I have read several times books which are very essential readings:
PMBOK part 1 and 2 with appendix 3, 4, 5;
PMI Agile Practice Guide;
PMP exam content;

Because there are some topics in the PMP exam that are not included in the the PMBOK scope I have used additional books:
Read & Pass notes for PMP exams by Maneesh Vijaya; there is a simulator free card inside the book but I did not use it;
Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep book and made the tests inside the book;
The Project Management study guide by Tom Schoen and made the tests inside the book;
I have watched all the free PrepCast videos;
I watched Ricardo Vargas process group flow video;

To test my understanding I used an exam simulator:
PM PrepCast simulator which is essential to integrate, appy and understand all the reading materials (I tested myself with about 1400 questions);
A few days before the exam, I have practiced with the PMI exam simulator available free with 200 questions for PMI members;

Good luck

Shweta,

You need to first schedule your exam and once it is done if you login to your PMI account --> MyPMI icon --> Dashboard --> e-learning - Go button --> you need to order it... it is totally free of cost --> once you order, it will be available in your order list and you can access and practice as many times as you can to set your expectations.
Hope this helps!!

Thank you Ricky.

I also tried downloading the exam and it says PMP India. Is that the one?
Does it matter if you are not giving the exam from India?
