Passed the PMP Exam (18th May)
.... with the following proficiency level.
Initiating - Below Proficient
Planning - Proficient
Executing - Proficient
M&C - Proficient
Closing - Moderately Proficient
Thanks to all the forum participants for healthy discussions, PMZilla is a great community to be a part of. Couldn't have done it without ya all!
Books - Read Rita once, never read PMBOK completely. Just used it in the "search" mode to fill in the gaps.
Mock Exams - PMStudy (#1 - #4), Scordo (#1 - #18), Oliver Lehmann (75 and 175 free questions)
.. and ofcourse active participants on this forum which helped me the most to "benchmark" against the talented "focus group" and make any "corrective actions" to my plan if the "variance" were "atypical" of the standard processes followed by other "team members".
Good luck to all others taking the exam in near future.
