Brain Dump

Postby santanuded Sat Aug 26, 2017 5:25 am

Hello All,

I passed PMP in 2015 when doing a brain dump was possible (and encouraged) during the 15 mins of the tutorials review. Now I am up for another PMI certification and have come to know that Brain dump is now not possible.

1. Any update on this?
2. Is it worth to spend 7-10 mins of exam time to do brain dump?

Experts, your opinion pls.

I am not aware about any changes to initial 15 min time frame available for students to get familiar with the exam software tool.

Hello Manish,

Apologies! i could have articulated better.

My question is whether to go for a brain dump during the start of the project or not. During 2015 times, candidates had access to paper and pencil which could be used to dump some material during the software review 15 mins.

I have been told that this is not available now. Though the software review 15 mins remains intact, Dumping can only start when the actual exam timer starts.

Thanks
Santanu

This trend is specific to the location you give exam in. In India now writing on notepad before the start of the exam is not allowed, this happened approx 2 months ago.
