Passed PMP at First Attempt on Aug 31, 2017
Yes, I passed PMP exam on August 31, 2017 at my first attempt. I won't forget the moment when I saw "Congratulations!" screen after the survey.
First of all, I would like to give thanks to Jyoti and Namita for your wonderful administrative supports. Thanks Manish for your nice clarification sessions, and last but not the least "Saket" for your all wonderful videos. Seems like you are a by-born teacher, Saket. You have that credentials. Thanks again for these videos.
I followed PMBOK guide, Rita's book and Saket's videos and did not give any mock exams other than Rita's books chapter-wise tests and iZenbridge Mock Tests. Saket's videos along with these two books helped me to clear my understandings. I recommend everybody who want to give PMP exam to follow Saket's Videos first, then read PMBOK guide and Rita's book.
Now about the Exam: I used all 4 hrs, even I couldn't finish last 5 questions because of the time shortage. All questions were very narrative and situational. I was surprised to see only 2 math questions out of 200. I finished only 75 questions in first 2 hours. I couldn't speed it up as all the questions were descriptive. However, I was not frustrated for this and kept myself quiet all the time. Finally, I was able to finish 195 questions within 4 hrs. Then Time's up and started the survey. When I finished survey, I was in fear to hit the ok button. Finally I did that and closed my eyes. When I opened my eyes, I saw 'Congratulations!' screen and was about to cry. This moment I won't forget.
Thanks again Saket, Manish, Jyoti, Namita and others for your wonderful supports! I will recommend iZenbridge to my friends, relatives and others who want to give PMP exam.
