PMP exam

Postby mpanda123 Sat Jan 17, 2015 10:46 pm

I have a question. In the exam for situational questions, do I have to go by book or the day to day PM activities?

It is the mix of PMBOK Guide + Project Experience. In one of the question in my PMP Exam , it was so similar to my own experience in a Project that I was bound to think that how PMI knew the similar situation described in the question !!! I just silently smiled in the exam :) . It was related to the involvement of Project Stakeholder. I should not discuss the exact situation here as it is against the PMI Professional Code of Ethics.

Thanks
Regards ,

In general you will include the PM for the calculation of the communication channels. But again as mentioned in the above posts ... you need to read the question very carefully and then take that call.

I got a few extremely tricky questions on communication channel calculation in the exam. So read and re-read the question.

Another trick i applied is calculate both answers .. at times only one will be in the choice and you can then go with that :) ... but this may or may not always work.

I practiced exam questions in my last 2-3 days of study and that helped.

Hi Sunil,

This is my personal experience which could vary from person to person. :)

I was taking around 3 hours to answer 200 when I was practicing but in actual exam it took around 3 hours 45 minutes. My read and reaction time was quick during practice exam but I was reading the question carefully and multiple times during actual exam so time was more. But I left only around 10 questions for review in my final exam which was able to finish within 15 minutes. But I was able to review around 100 questions during my practice exam

Questions were not really lengthy like some question from Rita but it was tricky having multiple correct answers leading to confusion and taking more time.

Cheers,
Bhabani
