Passed PMP on 13th July

Postby ankurjig Wed Jul 13, 2016 12:04 pm

Hi All,

I cleared my PMP today with Proficient in all Process Groups except Planning in which I was Moderately Proficient.

I had enrolled for iZenBridge course and take this opportunity to thank Saket and everyone at iZenBridge for their guidance.

What did I study -
iZenBridge Course videos from Saket (really very helpful to understand the concepts), PMBOK, Rita (topics which I felt necessary)

Mock Exams which I gave -
iZenBridge assessments (1200+ questions), Scordo (900+ questions), Rita 8th edition (400 questions), Rita FasTrack (1500 questions), HeadFirst (200 questions)

About the exam -
- It is not a difficult exam, I would rate questions as easy to medium difficulty.
- around 10 numerical questions covering mostly EVM, choice between rent and lease, Probability impact matrix, PDM and CPM (all of them simple)
- direct or questions requiring understanding of ITTO (no need to memorize ITTO but understanding of processes is enough to answer)
- rest most of them were situational questions (what PM should do next, what PM can do to prevent or avoid)
- I could complete one pass (200 questions with around 35 marked for review) in around 3hrs. Spent rest of the time to review the answers.

My tip to pass the exam will be to thoroughly understand the concepts (each and every term) in PMBOK and Saket's videos.

Thanks,
Ankur

Scordo - I had access through a corporate subscription, not sure how it is available otherwise

Rita FastTrack - as I donot think it is freely available over the internet, cannot suggest a way out

Did you solve the ~400 questions given at end of each knowledge area in Rita 8th edition book ? If not, please do solve as I found them to be good.

For Head First, you can try the 200 free questions on Head First Labs website. http://www.headfirstlabs.com/PMP/free_exam/

Rita's Fast Track, I donot think it is freely available over the internet. Do not worry to much about the Rita's Fast Track.

As long as you can complete the iZenBridge mock tests, Scordo, Rita's 8th Edition (400 questions) and Head First, I believe you should be fine.

Ankur
