As you may know the PMP Exam will change in the beginning of 2018 based on the upcoming sixth Edition of the PMBoK Guide (release is planned in Q3/2017; for details about the upcoming changes please refer to this article: PMBOK® Guide 6th Edition will be released in Q3/2017 - what will change? - UPDATED! ).
If you plan to become a PMP in 2017 you should assure to obtain this certification towards the end of 2017! You may ask yourself "why that? What is the reason for this pressure?". Well, the changes coming with the new PMBoK Guide Edition will be significant and so the PMP exam changes (the new PMP exam is expected to become valid in the Beginning of 2018!) will be significant too.
We all know that the preparation for the PMP exam needs time and dedication and if you do prepare based on the actual prep material available (which is all based on the actual 5th Edition of the PMBoK Guide!) then you need to assure to obtain the credential toward the end of 2017 and before the new exam will be in place, right?!
Of course all the providers for the PMP preparation material will update their materials to be aligned to the 6th Edition of the PMBoK Guide, but like we know from the past it will take some time for those updates and we can expect that the new courses/simulators/books/flash cards and so on will not be completely ready in time. Some may need towards the mid of 2018 to completely align their materials to the new PMP Exam version. This can cause you to start your preparation later in 2018 then you might have planned to.
The generic timeline in our picture at the top of this article shows you an example of a rough study plan and it shows you also, that you should not loose any time to start your preparations know!
Yes, there is some time buffer involved, but you will need this, trust us!
Well, a wise man said sometimes: "Always start with the end in mind!" and so let's do it this way:
While creating this timeline we had assumed that you want to have the option for using all of the offered three attempts (of course we hope that you just need the first try but you will never know). This is also kind of a backup plan in the case you may fail the first or even the second try.
Between the exam dates we have 4 weeks left to re-focus and additional practicing. Of course we could shorten this time frame later when the available time is getting short. But from our perspective there should be at least 2 weeks between the trys.
Ok, now let's switch back to the start of your PMP journey.
First of all you should
prepare your learning environment:
You should take your PMP preparation as a project on it's own and as you are a professional already (otherwise you wouldn't fulfill the PMP Exam requirements, right?) you should be professional here as well. That means that you would prepare your learning environment and create all the preconditions (including your personal learning strategy!) for a successful undertaking.
You can find detailed instructions and guidance for creating your learning environment within the first section of our "let me be your PMP prep guide"-program.
If you do not want to participate in the complete program you could alternatively download the Section 1 out of the program from here (of course for free!):
If you have finished this task you will
start your preparations (KA1 - KA10):
Now you will start deep diving into the several "knowledge areas" (KA's) mentioned in the PMBoK Guide and your prep books. Of course you could follow the PMBoK Guide structure here (and most PMP exam prep books are structured in the same way), BUT we would highly recommend NOT to start with "Project Integration Management" (what would be the first KA in the PMBoK Guide!
In our "let me be your PMP prep guide"-program we do follow another sequence and we do also explain why this makes a lot more sense from our perspective (but in the end it is your personal decision of course!).
To support your studying you should utilize a complementary training course which will also help you to fulfill the PMP exam application requirement regarding the 35 "contact hours"!
You can do this either by joining a live class/boot camp or alternatively by using one of the available online training courses (mostly much more less expensive than live classes!)
Here are some recommendations for such online training courses:

Izenbrigde PMP Course: ☛ http://goo.gl/9kjrXK
If you have worked through all the content you should start
We can't underline this more: The key to PMP exam success is: practice, practice and practice! And to maximize your chance to succeed we do always strongly recommend using a professional online exam simulator. Yes, this may need to invest some bucks, but this will definitely pay off, trust us. We know this from our own experience!
Of course you should also practicing while working through the several KA's (i.e. by doing the end of chapter questions provided in every good prep book). But know is the time to really simulate the PMP exam situation. This does mean that you should do several (at least three!) full timed and full loaded exam simulations (200 Questions/4 hours).
And professional online exam simulators are designed and optimized to do exactly this!.
By utilizing such a simulator (or may be even two different ones) you will be able to assess your exam readiness by analyzing your mock exam results intensively (and those simulators will provide you the tools for this analysis!).
