Advise on how to go with PMP preprations in 40 days

Postby Prachi Bansal Tue Jan 16, 2018 6:53 am

Hi All,

I would need your advise on how to go with PMP preparations.

Exam Date: 26/02/2018

So I registered back in Mar'17 and since then my preparations are going on and off. I have read PMBOK twice but once in June'17 and once in Oct'17. I have gone through all the Izenbridge videos almost 3 times but one in Jun'17 and twice in Oct'17. I know almost all the topics but not they are a bit faint in my memory. I haven't given any full test till now. Though I always attended chapter end questions of Izenbridge.

Now, I have to clear the exam on this date as my application would expire on 25/03/2018. So, It's kind of deadline for me.

Any suggestions about the study plan I should follow? I was thinking to revise everything i.e. my notes, videos and PMBOK in first 15 days and then just do questions.

Your suggestions would be really helpful for me.

Thanks!!

Now a days questions are too tough. Previously they have given direct questions from glossary, ITTO etc.
PMP questions are situational with no direct answer!
I think through read out Rita's book might help. Saket's videos will also give clarity.
Questions are not like Mock Tests!

I passed my exam last month and i think you have enough time to study and pass as you are not new to the PMBOK.

give all the 5 mocks analyze them and identify your weak areas and look it up in rita or Headfirst.

Contrary to what people have shared in the forms and webinar I found my exam a mix of easy and tough questions and i had a feeling that i have solved a similar question in the mocks and chapterend mocks on the quampus.

Thanks for your response and congratulations for clearing your exam. I am now revising very quickly all the Knowledge Areas from my hand made notes(which are very descriptive). Post that, I plan to do mocks. Then again PMBOK reading and Saket's videos.

Let's see how does it go. Fingers crossed.

I am sure you will do well. I did not memorize any itto's or scored heavily and clear with overall target score. You can read my story below(in case you want more details)
