Earned PMP certification in my first attempt
I am glad to share that yesterday I earned PMP certification in my first attempt. I want to thank PMZilla and all the people who devoted their time to help PMP aspirants, special thanks to Mr. SSPawar.
Although I done my PMP preparation workshop in Oct-12 end but after that I didn’t get time for preparation, so firm and focused preparation started in Jan-13.
Here and my lesson learned:
To finish 200 Qs in first shot took almost 3hr 40min, that means I got only 20 minutes to review(more than 40, marked ones, not able to review all) and 2 Q which I left in first run( but completed finally).
There were more than 30 Qs, required numerical calculation with moderate difficulty.
Around 5-7 Q were on critical path (float calculation, critical path, one Q had very complex network diagram, I left it in first run, done in last).
There were many question related to ITTO.
Qs had very wording description; reading to them took significant time.
I didn’t take any break as didn’t get time of it.
IMP: Time is precious; use it effectively and efficiently in exam time.

Rita (Twice – specially Risk and Procurement – these two topics are best in this book)
