Passed PMP Exam!!!
27th May, 2015 was my day! I have cleared my PMP exam on my first attemp. I must say it is challenging. I took long time for my preparation due to break in study. I must say PMP exam preparation must be like project where start and end date should be defined, which was my first mistake.
Following steps for PMP:
> Serious decision to take up for PMP certification.
> Mandatory PDUs collection, free or paid.
> Online registration in pmi.org.
> Application submission, I will share you excel for no. of hours calculation.
> Payment for exam fee.
> Registration under prometric for exam. Must do.
I have referred following books:
Note: Don't refer too many books. Two books are enough.
a) PMStudy. You can take anyone.
b) Oliver Lehman free questions. You can refer Oliver Lehman website for free questions link. You can try few. I think that's sufficient.
Note: PMStudy chapters wise questions are good, that is the standard of questions in exam. Don't go too tough questions, questions in the exam are quite mix of simple, moderately tough, very few are tough. You must resolve as many questions, free questions are sufficient.
> Prepare own notes. I can share you few notes, which are sufficient for exam.
> Finish study of both books than start questions. I think exam Central will be good to start.
> Review each correct and wrong answers, don't get demotivated with your low score. I have never crossed 70%, still I have cleared my PMP.
> Read PMBOK as much as you can. Remmember, Wording of questions are from PMBOK only. Hence, better you refer PMBOK while you review your answers. Rita is good to clear your concepts, once you are comfortable, start to refer PMBOK only.
> Don't mug up ITTO, try to understand each ITTO. Better you can refer the diagrams again and again.
> You must clear concepts of all numerical questions. Network diagram, communication channel, cost, EVM etc. Don't emphasise on too many tough numerical questions, questions are comparatively easy.
> I found many questions on corrective and preventive, communication channel, integration.
> Revise your notes as much you can.
I have prepared many notes, which I can share you all. Feel free to reach me at:
