Passed PMP on 26th May 2016

Hi All,

I have passed my PMP on 26th May. It was quite a long journey to complete. Please find inputs and lesson learn below.

I have started study around 6 months back but had break during New Year. Again, I have started back from February and got confidence in April to apply for PMP. Submitted and the application and done with the payment in 5 day. No Audit. I did not schedule till I got more confidence to attempt exam.

1.       Kindly go through the PMBOK as many times. you must study over 4 or 5 times.

2.       Try to go through Rita for Risk and Procumbent as least. If you cover full at least 2 times then it would be great.

I did not take any paid mock and attempted Mocks, Mocks, Mocks… from almost all websites.

Saket Bansal (Izenbridge) and Edureka video are good to start. below is my inputs and score on mocks. I have attemped PM Prepcast 35 and Certgear 24 questions as well.

I have attempted PMaspire in the last week and it was really good mock and give you confidence.

PMP exam does not have very lengthy question. It would 10-20 questions with 4-5 lines. Remaining will 3 lines. Few are one liner as well.

You must give emphasis on STACKHOLDERS, PROCUREMNT, RISK, COMMUNIATION AND HR. Math question every less.

Brain dump was complete waste for me.  

Thanks All

Great job, my exam after 6 days :) and i am reviewing the materials now.

It has been a pretty good challenge. However, it is supposed to be like that. The more challenge, the sweeter it is. - Steven C Wyer
