Passed the PMP Exam today, 10/08/2010
I’m happy to let you know that I got to pass the PMP exam today. Follows my strategy for studying for the exam, I hope it will be useful for future exam takers:
1. Books Used:
- Rita Mulcahy PMP Exam Prep v 6.0
- Head First PMP 1st Edition
- PMBOK®Guide 4 Edition
2. How I studied for the exam:
I studied an average of 2 hours from Monday to Friday and 4 hours on Saturday and Sunday for nearly 3 months. I began studying the books and doing their exercises.
After that, I started to do mock tests, here’s the list of those that are worth a check:
1. Oliver Lehman (http://www.oliverlehmann.com/)
6. Head First mock exam at the end of the book
The mock exams above will provide you with more than a 1000 questions to practice. By the time you get between 70-80% of correct answers on the exams, you can consider taking the PMP exam for real.
