PASSED! Am I Lycky or what? (First Try)
I am gonna be brutaly honest here. I dont practise PMI's PMBOK at work nor I had any familiarily of PMBOK 60 hours before my PMP exam. This is a true of my first try pass at PMP exam, with 20 hours studying and the study started approximately 60 hours before the PMP exam
My exam was on last week Monday in the morning and I started studing at 9pm on Friday, this is when - Firstly, I opened the the Rajesh Nair notes from this website and printed the Rajesh Nair Notes. Printing took up until10pm on Friday, then started studying the Rajesh's the excel printouts, reading these notes it took me until Sunday 4pm - reading through and understanding only, & reading only once you tend to foget the ITTO and inputs and outputs of processes.
Secondly, I had an old copy of Rita's book (which I never read anything in this book, except only doing the end of chapter questions quickly - rushing). I started doing questions the Rita's end of chapter questions (all chapters) from about 5pm to until 7am on Monday, up until 2 hour before the PMP exam and from 7am to 8am I spent travelling to the centre and revising the processes and ITTOs.
I was very nervous going into the exam and I didnt sleep for like 48 hours before this. To be honest, out of this 48 hours I was awake, I probably studied about only 20 hours max (other hours were spend chatting, watching tv, but the exam anxious kept me up).
During the exam I had a feeling I was gonna fail the exam, I was very slow in the exam. I never had time to go back to any question in the exam. My 200 questions took me 239 minutes to finish. I scored 2 Moderately Proficient and 3 Low Proficiecy and I passed!! So guys and girls - if I can do it this way then anyone can, I swear I didnt know the process maps of PMBOK beforehand (even 3 days before exam)! No bullshit and its plain truth. I was the only person to pass the PMP exam at the centre that day (the examiner/reception guy told me).
