Failed PMP exam second time.....with the same result...
Yes, that's true I failed PMP exam second time with the same result comparing to first one.
Initiation = BP
Planning = MP
Executing = MP
Now i'm more confused than before to figure out how can I fill up gaps in these two processes. At my second time preparation, I completed PMBOK 4 times and Rita 2 times with many mock up exams. From my perspective, the exam was not that complicated but trickey and most of the questions were written in vague statement for an e.g. you are a project manager of XYZ project and sponsor just handed you signed off project charter what is the next activity you should start working on?
A) Start work on gathering requirements
B) Start create Risk management plan
C) Start work on creating high level Proj. Management Plan
D) Start implemeting Communication plan
I let you pick the correct answer but in exam i picked option C. I had many quesitons in exam that followed above logic and i'm pretty sure i provided enough incorrect answers to get BP in initiating.
In short i still have some knowledge gaps in Init. and M&C. Also, I'm not sure if i will read PMBOK three more times that is going to fill up knowledge gaps. Very confused...not nourves but confused. I'm still feeling strong and going for third trial in next three weeks.
Guys, please help me to fillup my gaps specific to below questions:
1) At initiation process how to choose what comes after next specially when the provided choices doesn't look approprate (i memorized pg # 43 of PMBOK but when provided answers doesn't match with cronological order of KA)
2) I am not quiet sure where i've gaps in M&C. I memorized all TT and output of M&C and how the process works. What else i have to know more than that.
May be with all your help i can make it in third time.....
