Hi Sudha

Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts to the Exam. You have to study for it in a dedicated manner to be successful. The most important place to attain most of your knowledge is the PMBOK itself. Once you have read the PMBOK, you can move on to the book by Rita Mulachy. Beginning your preparation can often be the hardest challenge to overcome. There are plenty of resources that you can use in your preparation. I can suggest downloading our free 'PMP Exam Mentor' based on PMBOK 5th edition. It is available on all platforms and has content about all 5 Process Groups and 10 Knowledge Areas (covering all the 47 processes and their ITTOs). Additionally, with 40 Project Framework topics, 576 Glossary terms/concepts, 79 formulas and 151 tips, there are so many ways to learn and enhance your knowledge. Once you have learnt and understood all the contents, revise your knowledge with 688 flashcards and 1200 questions to practice extensively. Here are the links for your reference.

Good luck with your studies

A shortcut is also a good advice ! An advice from someone who has experienced the situation, in this case the exam, and can guide you to the useful material and practice that can save you a lot of time and increase the eficiency of learning.  Take a look at previous exam questions and do the practice
