Cleared Exam On May 31

Postby VASUVS Wed Jun 01, 2016 3:59 am

Hi All,
Cleared exam on May 31 and below are the project details

Charter Issued : October 2015
Project : PMP Certification
Scheduled Constraint : 11 Jan 2016
Scheduled Completion : 10 Jan 2016
Budget : SGD 1000 (Definitive Estimate)
Risks : Exam content change
PM : Vasu


Final Report
Status : Success
Completed : 31 May 2016 with P,MP,P,MP,P grades in process groups respectively.
EAC : SGD 1200


Lessons Learned
1. Slow and (PMPBOK) study wins (clears) the race (exam).
2. Crashing and Fast tracking does not works for employees. (High risk - Contingency Reserves up to USD 450 will vanish).
3. Success Formula: Gap Analysis
4. Do not look for too many resources.
5. Do not practice / attempt too many mock exams.
6. Adopt the following (discretionary dependencies) to clear the exam.

Hope you are all got my project details, and with the following couple of lines you will get clear and complete idea to tame the PMP tiger.

Before I start, I would like to thank all the people mentioned here for their support.

On an average I even not studied 15-20 minutes in weekdays from the project started. Weekends are dedicated to the family. You can imagine my study.

Exam is not that tough as we think, but questions are situational and answers are almost close to each other. In fact those are the sequence of steps in that process like how the CR will be raised and closed. Faced 6 to 8 questions on maths and major questions from 4,5,8,9,10,11 chapters. I have concentrated on 1, 3, 5 process groups and got Proficient grading in these groups and remaining groups with MP. No questions from newly added content and one question I never come across the concept. Do NOT TRY TO REMEMBER THE ITTOs, as it is not worth or spending the time. I have one question is asking for the INPUTS.

I have gone through the PMZest mock questions in last 30 days before exam, and those questions are quite useful in getting the concepts clearly. These questions had taken me to the PMBOK corners (which I generally omit or do not remember). Another plus point is I have seen the different analysis for the each questions from Anmol Sinha. BTW these are hard questions for ME, and I have not secured the pass score during starting, and slowly managed to pick up later with the question sets.
IZenBridge practice and mock questions covers the major concepts and their implementation in practice. By combining these two helped me a lot.
Last, do not look for too many sources for alternative to PMBOK, and do not practice too many easy or medium hard mocks as it will take away your time.
DO NOT WORRY ABOUT YOUR EXAM, JUST FOCUS ON READING AND KEEP STUDY BALL ROLLING.
