“On closing notes, I would say the BEST way/plan to study is ‘your own way/plan’. Prepare your own notes instead of getting from others.”

Timmo Sturm passed his PMP® with proficient in all domains. He spent three months with 2 hours per working day on the PMP® preparation.

Lessons Learned:

  • Read through PMBOK® Guide Guide and created flashcards on iPad.
  • I did not memorize all ITTOs.
  • Listened to Cornelius’ Prep Cast while running
  • Read and finished all chapter end questions from the Ritas’ PMP® Exam Prep Book. Rita’s book goes from PMBOK® Guide into real world problems.
  • Used PM Exam Simulator. Scored around 75-80% for 4 practice exams.
  • Attempted Oliver Lehman‘s PMP® questions.
  • I spend some serious time on questions that I got wrong to really understand my weaknesses.
  • I never tried to read the PMBOK® Guide Guide.
  • If I were to attempt the PMP® exam again, I would have spent less time on ITTOs. I would work through Rita’s PMP® book and PM PrepCast™ in parallel and began attempting practice exams sooner.
