Study materials

My PMP® Experience

  • The real PMP® exam took me 3.5 hours while normal practice exams took 2 hours only. Need to have better time management during the real exam.
  • Completing many practice exams helped me to solve real PMP® questions, especially the lengthy and wordy ones.
  • Need to practice sitting continuously and maintaining concentration for 4 hrs. This helped a lot on the real exam.
  • The PMBOK® Guide summary and glossary at the end is very useful for last minute revision
  • You should also understand and memorize the process chart in the PMBOK® Guide


  • Risk Management is an important topic
  • Focus more on understanding and applying the ITTOs
  • No need to spend too much time on calculations and formulas
  • Prepare for the PMP® exam with one exam prep study material in addition to PMBOK® Guide
