I passed the PMP today on my first try

Hi everyone,

Just thought I would pass along the news. I just passed the PMP today, on my first attempt.  Here is how I did it.

Read the PMBOK Guide 3 times through.

Rita's questions, 2 times through. I initially scored in the high 60's and then high 70's low 80's.

I read the O'Reilly Head first PMP to help give a better explanation to topics in the PMBOK Guide

Pm Zilla formula content is very helpful. I would not rely memorization, but understand how the formula works.

For me this took about 2 months of studying with the weekend before spending about 8 hours on each day.  I would not recomend allowing a long time span between studying and the test date. I went into super study mode when I scheduled the test, about a month out. I allowed myself enough time to study but not enough time to slack off.
