PMP Exam Passed 23rd May 2103 on First Attempt

Hello All,

I passed my PMP exam today at about 11.45am GMT

Here are my lessons learned

My Lessons Learned

1. Materials I used

-Crosswinds PMP Exam Booth Camp (I read it through)

-Ritas FastTrack Exam Simulation

-examcentral.net (thier questions are rather easy)

 

2. My Study regimen

 

-I studied for about 2-3 hours after work every day for the past one and half months. This I must confess was very difficult ( if you live in Lagos Nigeria, traffic keeps you for hours on the road )

- I took about 6 mock exams before my test day.

-I revised a little more the day before and the early morning of my exam day (I don't recommend this for any one)

- Before the exam I did a little brain dump of formulas and the 42 processes- ThisI found very helpful during the exam because some questions just require you understand the order of the process and having that already down saves you a lot of thinking time.

 

3. Things I would have done better

- Study the procurement chapter thoroughly- I must confess I just skimmed over it and I had about 8-10 questions come from that knowledge area. I did more of guessing

 - I had little issues checking in as I did not have a drivers license or International ID- I had only voters card and they were skeptical about it and had to receive higher authorization before checking me in, I must confess I almost lost my composure.That can affect you on the exam. Please make sure to have the accepted clearance ID.

 

 You should be proud for your accomplishment 

Congrats!

 Thanks Diba

Congratulations...

So  how were you scoring in the Rita Fastrack -- PMP and Super PMP?

Bests

 

Thank yo Rmandal. To be honest my scores on RitaFast track were not so encouragin, I used only Super PMP and I got between 62-68%. But I just followed my gut feeling. it's no wonder my heart pounded so fast when I clicked to submit button. I would not advise you to do thesame, practise alot till you can get above 75% above.

I wish you the best

Thanks..I will do that.

Also, I am also using Crosswinds PMP Exam Booth Camp.

Did you use the Exam Sim that came with that..how good was that?

 

Were the exam questions similar to Rita's Fast track ? Easier,Difficult?? 

How were the Math questions???

 

Thanks again.

 

Yes I did Rmdal, but I installed it on the first system which I submitted to my former working place, I did on the second not knowing it is only for 2 installations, unfortunately the laptop crashed, when attempting 3rd install, it gave me errors.

The cross wind exam SIM is more difficult because they use 75% for pass mark while RitaFasttrack uses 61%. The ITTO bit helped me ingrain it some how in my brain.

I like Crosswinds because of the way they lay it out and make the more imprtant things bolder. I love the way they made the EV formulas easy to remember. I 'm sure i did not fail any EV question

I wish you success as you continue reading.

 

Congrats!

 Congrats Terick! I am so happy for you, especially considering your busy schedule and extremely tight traffic in Lagos!!
