PMP® Study PMP®

  • Attended Rita’s PMP® Exam Prep Course for 4 full-days
  • Read Rita’s PMP® Exam Prep thrice
  • Read the PMBOK® Guide Guide twice. If your mother tongue is not English, it is recommended to read the English version of the PMBOK® Guide Guide if you would attempt the PMP® exam in English.
  • Play the Rita Process Game to understand the project management processes sequence
  • Use PM FAStrack  for practice exams
  • Search the internet for definition and application of difficult terms.

The PMP® Exam

  • Went to the exam venue 30 minutes earlier
  • You must start the tutorial before making your own brain dump, otherwise, your PMP® exam might just ended
  • I included the planning processes in sequence in the brain dump. The formulas from earned value management and communication were also included.
  • I tried to read the exam questions very carefully.
  • Had good exam time management
  • Remember to not let the family, phone calls, other friends, Facebook updates, screening movies, soap operas or other distractions to interfere with your PMP® preparation.
