PMP Passed First Attempt
I just found this forum a few days ago and was going through some of the Lessons learned topics from earlier users.
I just passed the PMP.
I just read Rita and PMBOK, and practiced some free online exams. Thats all.
It actually demotivated me going through this forum, and seeing people write all kinds of stuff about PMP. Some people, who can not even write a proper sentence(No offence) were throwing names of books that I never heard of or just scared the heck out of me.
All you need for PMP is PMBOK 4(as of 2012), and Rita Mulcahy PMP Exam Prep, to understand the concepts.
How do I know? I read just those, practiced a few exams online and guess what, I passed!
Just have a clear mind, focus and think about what you actually read. It's not brain surgery, and believe me, it is not at all difficult. I could complete it in 3 hours flat, after about 3.5 weeks,(yes, exactly 24 days) of preparation. Dont give in to all this hoopla about Reading 100 books. Just focus on the content and browse through various topics. Oh, also, that dude Chowdary, hats off to you my man, you are one gem of a person. Your excel sheet, is a great compilation of Rita and PMBOK!
Thanks and all the best!
