Failed the exam on first try with 3MPs and 2BPs
I have been studying on and off for about 3-4 months, and I mostly read Rita Mulcahy 7th edition and Andy Crowe book, PMPrepcast. I haven't read PMBOK guide, just wanted to menction that. But I did memorize all 42 processes according to their knowledge areas and process groups.
After reading on this forum, I have purchased pmp for sure but I guess it was too late at that point, as I didn't get a chance to take those tests.
I did pmstudy and got around 60-65%, and I have also did PMFastrack software, and used to get around 65-70%.
On the exam day I was a little nervous, during the tutorial,
I did the brain dump/download of the following:
42 processes by Process groups and Knowledge areas
PERT formulae, ALL earned value formulae.
LS LF etc, sigma, 2sigma, 3sigma, 6sigma, n(n-1)/2, PTA, etc etc
but once I started taking the exam, I felt comfortable in my answers, if I'm not mistaken I think I have answered all but one question correct on the ones that involved math. (EV and PERT and network diagrams etc)
I didn't get a chance to review the exam, cuz I only had about 10mins left ( I didnt get up to take any breaks during the exam)
So, needless to say I was really upset and shell shocked to see that I actually failed! I thought I did fairly well, at least expected to get MPs in all of them and pass.
ANyway, I just want to put all of this behind, and try to re-take it again, this time I don't want to fail, please help me on how I can fill my gaps and prepare. I have to tell you that the ones that I had a tough time were the ones that are wordy and asked you what to do NEXT, FIRST, what to do in the ABOVE scenario. etc.
Thanks for your feedback and help, really appreciate any comments.
