Here are my experiences:

Material I considered: PMBOK, Rita, izenbridge blogs & videos and my REP's study material (Aptech in my case)
PMBOK - Read Thrice ( Once more just two days before the exam)
Rita - Read Twice

Study Time table: 2-3 hours every day for 60 days (missed the odd weekend BTW :) and 8-10 hours, 4 days before the exam

Practice Tests I took: PM Simulator, PM Study, Rita all chapter wise questions and Scordo questions

I did not memorize any of the ITTOs. I even did not mug up the PMBOK definitions. Never really looked at the glossary either.

Key: I would say the key here is to read the PMBOK carefully atleast 3-4 times and take atleast 4 mock tests (full length). Post the tests mark your weak areas and try to fix them. I could also relate a lot of questions with Rita's book.

About the exam: Well, I can't shell out too many details but I can definitely give you guys a run down. Here's a glimpse:

1) A lot of questions on pareto chart and EVM (EVM questions were fairly simple and only related to calculation SPI and CPI)
2) Tuckman Lader model
3) Prepare risk management strategies well
4) Few questions on input/output
5) Few questions on control charts
6) Few on organization type
7)Quite a few on Quality assurance and HR
8) Procurement and project closure

Good luck and feel free to touch base for any questions.

Cheers,

Nikhil
