55% knowlege gaps

I've just re-started preparing for PMP after a break of 5 month break. Today I did the Scope knowlegde area practice questions from Rita Fast Track and Edwell's end of chapter.

To my surprise I got 66.7% in Rita. In Edwell I got less than 40% correct. This is after I read the Pmbok chapter. I'm wondering how I should handle the knowledge gap. For example, Rita Fast track had over a 100 questions. If I look at each question, it will take me longer to study them and make notes than the time it took to do the 100 questions.

How did some of you who already gave the exam close your knowledge gaps with large number of practice questions?

I can say, precision is very important.

May be you need to attempt few more rounds, to see how close you are to the target.

Shwe,

Why would you practice test by Knowledge Area when the PMP test measures your performance by Process Group?

Whatever testing service that you use for practice testing, test yourself by Process Group.

Does this make sense to you?  Hope so.

Adding notes and checking what mistakes you made will take much longer than taking the mock test itself but its well worth the effort. It is an essential activity because it will help you determine why you make such mistakes and that will make a huge difference in the exam. You will be able to correctly interpret the situational questions. IMHO it is as essential as taking the mocks.

Hi Shwe,

Rita's questions are based on how her book is written. So, you might score more in those q. Secondly, if you repeat a test or questions, then you would score more in that test becuae our brain tends to remember a few things.

You might want to read about Rita's book review - you would notice that it follows a different approach then PMBOK guide.

So, your strategy should be to do questions from different sources. You may want to read this article to determine your readiness for the exam.

While you are doing the questions, make notes on the knowledge gaps. You should also read about tips to answer questions.

If you are looking for free exam questions then you can look at 3000+ fee sample questions.

All the best.
