Am I ready for real exam?

Hi Dear Friends,

I have been studying for 3 months and more (since August). 2-4 hours during weekdays at work and almost none during weekend. I studied

- PMBOK

- Rita's

- Andy Crowe

I reviewed once again highlighed parts after end

 

I did following tests

- Rita Chapter end tests:                              65-75%

- Andy Crowe chapter end test:                   75-85%

- Kim Heldman Assessment Test - 200Q:    60% (found lots of knowledge gaps)

- Simplilearn Free Test - 200Q:                    68%

- PM PrepCast Free Test - 31Q:                   58% (testing environment was disturbing)

- PM PrepCast Free Test 3- 30:                    86%

- PM PrepCast Free Test 3- 80:                    76%

- Head First Free - 200Q:                              80%

- PMStudy Free test - 200Q                           82%

- ExamCentral Random Free test - 200Q       90%

- Rita's PM Fast Track Full Test -200Q          75.5%

- PMPForSure Free Test - 100Q                      64%

- Christopher Scordo Very First Test - 50Q     88%

 

During my study I did Oliver Lehmann - 175Q and got below 60%. That time back I found a lots of knowledge gap. These days planning to buy PMPForSure or/and PM Simulator from OSI PM PrepCast. My personal target was to pass exam by December. I have left 13 days. I can schedule exam either at the end of November or in first week of December. 

 

My problems

- Challanged by situational questions usually where multiple correct answers.

- Lot's of marked questions during test.

- In tests where I had below 80% I had finished just 5-10 min before test. So NO enough time to review all marked questions.

- In tests where I got above 80% questions are shorter and I was able to finish early and had more time to review.

 

I am marking questions and noting some questions as 'secondary marked questions' on paper to review in case I will still have a time after reviewed actually marked questions.

 

AM I READY FOR REAL TEST? Please your suggestions

 

Thanks and regards

Your scores are good , but reading at your challenges, i recommend that you take PMZilla 200 Questions, it is made for people who need more variety and hence th confidence to give final PMP

Admin, thanks for suggestions. Yes I am planning to buy and do following tests:

- PMP For Sure (I found it challanging and answer choices are close to each other requiring carefull evaluation)

- PMZillla Tough 30 and 200 questions (heard a lot about it)

- Oliver Lehmanns 175 question in PDF

- Christopher S. from test mock 15 to 20: directly referring to PMBOK and I think as it is part of PMI library it should be worth to solve.

- PM Simulator from PrepCast: quality of questions was good.

Hope these give me some direction and idea.

 

Thanks!
