Failed Today will Try again


Today I gave test and failed. I will be preparing again so that I can make it next time. 

My weak area are Planning and Execution . will be looking for guidance and support or suggestion to improve this.

I Joinned this website late . but found very usefull . hope it will help me to crack pmp next time.

I have no Idea when I can appear again. is there any cooling period before going to second time exam. will need to find that as well.




My advice to you, don't cool down,


schedule your 2nd shot after 4-6 weeks,

Read PMBOK, a prep book (Rita is great), and solve as many question as you can,

some simulators allows you to solve question process group wise, foucus on your weak areas,



Remember, every failure gets you a step closer to success,

Good Luck,


This is coming from someone who passed on his second attempt. You should be practicing more questions and be aiming to score above 70% to really be sure of your success. I suggest going over Rita, and Headfirst and reading the PMBOK once again. If that seems a bit hard, you can use this app 'PMP Exam Mentor' that I used to revise content from PMBOK. Other than that you might want to look at some Oliver Lehmann questions as well.  

Hoping you pass the second time

Curious to know. what is the pass rate for people taking the exam, does the majority pass first attempt.

I have written a post that describes 15 Reasons Why People Failed the PMP Exam You should read this point and imbibe all the points. This will help you in determining what you should do and what you should not do. For example you must attend a training course and you should read PMBOK Guide. But you should not overtly rely on free sources (some free sources are good).
All the best.
