Passed my exam today, tips if you have little time to study
I passed my exam today with 3MPs and 2 Ps. I had spent very little time on studying as I have to juggle between my family (girl aged 2 and weekends mostly dedicated to her), work (long hours most days so nights are burnt working) and house renovation (so whatever little time I've left gone here). What I did to pass my exam,
- Choose a school that is reputable and has high passing rates. I chose PMStudy. Their notes are superb, I didn't read the PMBOK. Just rely on their concise notes. This way, I earned PDUs fastest, and being in a classroom, interaction with other students help exchange different viewpoints on real-life PM experience helps too!
- Read up the free materials on PMZilla. Try Raga's 355 points.
- Take the free PMZilla 30 tough questions
- Purchase the 200 tough questions from PMZilla
My regret is that I discovered PMZilla too late! I did the free 30 tough questions, and I really like it. I purchased the 200 tough questions few hours from my exam. By the time I received the book, I only managed to get through 30+ questions. But I must say the quality is good. Worth buying. Few questions are pretty similar to the real PMP questions, and considering I only managed to go through 60 questions, I must say I've learnt quite a number of concepts that helped me to score in PMP. The detailed explanation in the answer also helped correct a lot of my thinking process, which help me tremendously in gaining confidence and the right "tactic" when choosing the most appropriate answers in PMP. So, give it a try.
Also want to thank God, for His grace :)
