Re: Brain Dump

Hello Manish, Apologies! i could have articulated better. My question is whether to go for a brain dump during the start of the project or not. During 2015 times, candidates had access to paper and pencil which could be used to dump some material during the software review 15 mins. I have been told ...

Brain Dump

Hello All, I passed PMP in 2015 when doing a brain dump was possible (and encouraged) during the 15 mins of the tutorials review. Now I am up for another PMI certification and have come to know that Brain dump is now not possible. 1. Any update on this? 2. Is it worth to spend 7-10 mins of exam time...

Re: Pro-metric Gurgaon

You can search it on Google maps. Very easy. BTW, in terms of KMs, I guess it would be 7-10 KMs. you can order an OLA to pick you up from Huda and it would charge you around Rs. 100 (including tips).
