When is it wise to schedule a test date.
Must be a question which all of us go thru at a point in the PMP journey.
When shall we schedule a test date ?
Knowing that we all have works to do other than the PMP preparation like the project work and other. And that Prometric will charge us money if we reschedule the test date.It becomes kind of important to schedule the date wisely.
Option A is to finish "everything" and then when we feel fully prepared and confident THEN we can take a date. It becomes an easy option but generally delays the test date as we never think we are 100% and then may take 4-6 weeks more.
Option B is to study upto a point and when you have gained enough knowledge then take a date while keeping the remaining study time in mind. It ,kind of ,challenges us and the firm date keeps us on toes. Risk is that if we get something in between (office work or whatever) OR if your estimate is not good then it becomes a struggle.
Which one is preferable ??
