lesson learned

Postby kripakrish Fri Aug 15, 2014 9:41 am

Thanks to almighty and my dear husband,kids for all the support.
I am a mom with 2 small kids so take my ll with a grain of salt.
I started preparation about 3 months back.
I started with izenbridge for 35 pdus,the videos were a good intro and luckily no audit.Then started with RITA ,then a round of PMBOK .I had a vague idea .Next round of RITA and pmbok made things fall in perspective.PMZILLA itto document was a great help.
Weekends I would study for 3 hrs initially and daily whenver I had time at work.Once the exam dates were finalised I studied everyday for approx 2-3 hrs and weekends for 5 hrs.I did not skip anyu ourings or parties though :).

I also did Pmstudy chapterwise questions,izenbridge knowledgearea questions,pmstudy free mock,izenbridge full mock,oliver lehmann,scordo 5 chapters questions.I referred pmzilla to clarify concepts.
Last 2 days I used rajesh nair notes and formula cheatsheet an dgave sepcial emphasis for initiaing and closing.
I used ever note for aggregating all my notes .It was great to sync notes and access them anywhere and everywhere.
I carefully made note of all wrong questions and learnt from them.
About the exam

1. Noise cancelling headphone were great.
2. Time was exact as I took 3 breaks a I needed them to clear my head :)
3. Tuckman ladder ,quality,risk,contract types were major parts of the exam.
4.Exam was nothing majorly complicated.Be clear with basics.
5.I did not memorise itto.itto max there were 5 questions.

P.S I had masala tea in thermos .So whenver I took a break I had few sips of it to help me think clearly :)

All the best to all...
HTH!TGIF...
Thanks
KK

Congrats Kripa :P

"5.I did not memorise itto.itto max there were 5 questions."
I have downloaded ITTO (from my current understanding it is list of 47 process according to knowledge area,phase with input/technique/output.

What you mean by ITTO (5 questions max)? Can you please give example :)
