I just want to be clear on what the focus is for week 1 starting Jan 4th? We are reading Chapter 2 in the PMBOK Guide and chapter 2 & chapter 3 in the Agile Practice guide, right?

I'm aware of the 10 reference books listed by PMI, but based on my research I don't think we will have to cover every book on the list. I think we just need to be consistent and focus on the books that we all have which is the PMBOK 6th edition, & Agile Practice Guide. I think it's still to early to tell honestly. I don't think we can go wrong with following the study plan though and I believe as we start using the simulator, which is one of the best out there if it's not the best, we will know if we need to grab another book from the reference list. I'm interested to see what kind of information that PMI is going to put out there with this class that they are offering for free later this month. Starting Monday, everyday counts towards our path to success to defeat this exam.

I'm flexible....Friday, Saturday or Sunday. I don't plan on doing any traveling until this test is behind me. My work schedule is 7am-3:30PM EST through the week and I typically have weekends off. Also, I'm normally up pretty late on Fridays & Saturdays. Through the week I normally take it down about 11:00PM-11:30PM EST.

Team,
Which study plan do you want to use? Based on the posts, it sounds like we are going to use the study plan based on chapters. As we read the chapters and APG, let's see about answering the tasks related to these chapters and APG. Then when we meet we can discuss our answers together. (we would be answering the tasks after reading the APG and associated chapters).

That's sounds good. I plan to meet also on weekends. Keep up with these posts and we will post what time and days we will meet. In an earlier post I posted a study plan. Your input is welcomed.

Sharon, if possible, I would also like to join your study group. I haven't taken the PMP exam yet and need to put together a study guide. I'm in NC (EST) and can meet on the weekend.

I to want to put this behind me as soon as possible so that I can continue with my normal life. For the last few months it's been all about PMP. I've been kind of neglecting everything to ensure that I had a understanding of what I needed to pass the exam. My job paid for a bootcamp for me back in March, and anything additional will be on me as well. How do you like the exam prep with Joseph Phillps thus far? It seem like it's fairly inexpensive compared to these other prep courses out there. I think we will definitely learn from each other by going through the lesson plan. I believe the real learning will come when we start to take focus quizzes on what we have read. This prepcast simulator will be excellent for testing our knowledge. It would be cool if after each assignment for the week if we all could test our knowledge using the same bank of questions and then bring the questions to the table to discuss as a group on why the particular question gave us a problem and try to understand that particular topic.

Sharon,

I have no idea. I had to approve this post and several of yours in "Looking for a study partner" topic. I don't know why your recent posts have been marked for moderator's approval.

What day and time would you like to start meeting to go over what we've read and our problem areas?

I took a quick look at the list of books listed in the PMI site (url provided by PMP aspirant). It is a very long list of books. I don't know if I'd be able to absorb all that material in the limited time to prepare for this exam. What are your thoughts?

As of now, I have the PM BOK 6th, APG and the PMP class from Udemy for resources.

Yes, I just purchased Udemy PMP class given by Joseph today. It's a really good resource. I are going over the agile portion of his course.

Team:
Are we all on board with using the study plan outlined for 12-week period? I understand that some may need to speed up the schedule.

How would you like to get together? We can have a conference call at a time that works for all time zones.

Hi Duon,
I am located at North Jersey and am glad that both of us are on EST zone.
The Agile Practice Guide does not look intimidating and I started studying this book today. But I am not sure will this be enough or we will need to do anything extra.
I also have subscription of Joseph Philips course "PMP Exam Prep Seminar - Pass the PMP on Your First Attempt" in Udemy and he added Agile sections (Section 22 through Section Section 32)
Lets finish reading the books according to the plan and then we all can discuss our problem areas.
And obviously we need to practice as many questions as possible. I am very hopeful that we all will get through this.
My company paid for the initial bootcamp course but everything else (PrepCast Simulator , Udemy) I am paying out of my pocket. I just want to clear this as soon as possible.
