Pattern of Studying

Hi Guys,

 I am a bit new to this Forum and really found this very helpful.I have a small doubt and I believe the people who were sucessful in the PMP should be able to guide me .

My question is

Would the pattern of studying PMBOK, process group wise be more helpful than the Knowledge group wise ?

For exp  : Completing all the processes in  Initiation  ( Project Charter , Identify Stakeholders )

and then moving on to PLANNING group



My advice here would be that read for the first time by process group wise so that you will know the project management flow in sequence. Once this is done read books with microscopic details as per the book chapters i.e. knowledge area. This is again an individual choice. You should definitely read PMBOK every line and refer 2 reference books. Put ample time in reading book and do not hurry in this aspect.

Thanks & Regards,
