Passed PMP 1st Attempt. Thanks to PMZilla forum
I cleared the examination with Proficient in 3 areas(Planning, Executing, Monitoring & Controlling) ,MP in Initiating and BP in Closing. I studied for 2 months and started my preparation by first fixing my exam dates. I used to check in pmzilla forum for information which could assist me.
I didnt buy any study guides like rita, headfirst etc. nor did i buy an exam preparation questions. I went through the PMBOK and tried to understand each of the concepts(Google assisted me). I cant talk about the exam since against the PMI ethics. But I can suggest,
Read PMBOK once atleast
Try as many sample questions possible(i used only free sample available in net)
Clarify the questions which you have answered incorrect.
I never retook an sample question more than once, i just tried new and different everytime.
Please dont lose confidence if you score less than 70% in any practice exam.
Keep the golden rule in mind while taking the exam "PMBOK is always right", even if it differs from our performing organization PM practices.
ALL the best to new takers.
