Hi,

well, i guess you want us to be honest and so i will.

Looking at your results you has provided, i would have said to you (if i had known this previous to your exam!) that you might not be ready to take the exam. The results wasn't be good enough.

If you was well prepared you should easily score over 80% in the Head First questions and more than 70% in Rita's.

Why did you think you are ready and why didn't you postpone the exam and gave yourself more time, i am just wondering.

Another statement i am wondering about was, that you couldn't handle the situationel questions?!?!?!

Well, if your application for pmp exam was honest you should have several thousand hours of projectmanagement experience, and you can't handle situationell questions?!?!

Sorry, but i don't get that ...

Well, after all this criticism i would recommend you to start all over!

Gain some new energy and power and than foget this first attempt completly and tkae a serious approach in a professionell manor this time!

Hi Senthil,

When you got your results back, which process groups were you insufficient in? Maybe you need to drill into those process groups and do more practice questions around those areas. How long have you been studying for? 

Additionally, you should be aiming for at least a score of 70% on 3 full length exams before you take your actual exam. 80% is preferable. I suggest that you look back at the questions that you scored wrong on your past exams and figure out why. That may involve re-reading the PMBOK or some other book. 

Hope this helps!

Helena

 

It was a five month preparation.  I got BP in all process group, sure let me again go through all process and aim for atleast 70% in future mock test. Thanks Helena for suggestions.

Hi

I can understand what you are going through as I failed my first time as well. I am now planning on sitting the exam on 22 Nov.  However, I have been studying regularly for the past couple of months.

  • I read the PMBOK inside out 2 times
  • I also practiced Rita questions and sit around 80%
  • I am also doing Oliver and Head First getting around 85%
  • I have done simplilearn
  • I also downloaded the PMP Exam Mentor App for free and using it for flashcards and practice questions. I am aware that it is on windows, apple, and google store, This is what I have been using to do quick revision on my way to work.

I now feel confident in my ability to sit the exam the same time so I suggest you do the same. Keep your head up and your hopes high

Good luck friend

 

Thank you Neil.
