My PMP Exam prep notes
I visit the PmZilla forum occasionally but almost every day in the past two weeks and listening to experiences from others has helped me a lot and I want to thank every one of you!
I recently took my PMP exam successfully and would like to share my experiences.
My 2 cents:
- Read PMBOK.
- Make your own notes as you read individual PMBOK chapters.
- Avoid Rita’s book (from exam perspective).
- Rajesh Nair’s notes cover everything comprehensively.
My 12-week Study plan:
Week 1: Chap 1 & 2
Week 2: Chap 3 & 4
Week 3: Chap 4 & 5
Week 4: Chap 5 & 6
Week 5: Chap 6 & 7
Week 6: Chap 7 & 8
Week 7: Chap 8 & 9 & 10
Week 8: Chap 11 & 12
Week 9: Review thoroughly the Chap related to Scope, Quality and Risk
Week 10: Three 200 Qs 4-hour simulation and Rajesh Nair’s notes.
Week 11: Three 200 Qs 4-hour simulation and Rajesh Nair’s notes
Week12: Take the PMP exam.
Note: As long as you get 70% or more on any of the simulation exams (Exam Central, PmStudy etc.), you should be good.
Areas to pay special attention: Scope, Quality and Risk and of course the EV related formulas.
