I am glad to announce that I passed the PMI-SP® exam on April 16, 2018 from the first attempt with Above Target score and I would like to share with you my adventure as it might be helpful for new apirants who are preparing to sit for the exam.
How did I study ?
3- Simulation Exams: Very minimal simulation exams. The aren't much resources available for simulation exams.
How was the Exam ?
I can only discuss the exam in general without going into details or specifics as it is against the Code of Ethics:
2- Not too many lengthy questions. Most questions are 2 - 3 lines but the answers are not straight forward. It does test your depth of understanding for the schedueling process and many other processes outside of the scheduling knowledge management area.
3- The exam definitely tests your knowledge and experience beyond any textbook.
What is my Point of View ?
Just like the RMP, finding the exam to be difficult is a positive thing that PMI made the exam that way so that it can maintain the value of this certification and only people who really deserve it and have the required skill level can earn it. I believe this is a plus for everyone who is certified as when you mention you are a PMI-SP certified, people will react "Oh Wow, Great" which makes you feel proud and feel the value of this certification if compared to people saying : "Oh everyone can get it, it is easy".
Always Remember: Such Adventures are definitely worth taking !
Recently, many companies are adopting the IPD approach in lieu of the traditional Design-Build for the following reasons:
Being someone who is currently studying to sit for the PMP Exam soon, I would like to share my humble experience, from my personal point of view, in terms of what was the best way I found effective to study for the exam:
Many could add more to the above mentioned or have different points of view - I just thought of sharing what I've learned through my colleagues here in this community(Special Thanks to Markus Klein & Stephane Parent) and from preparing for the exam myself as I thought it might help guide others through their PMP Exam preparation.
I would like to wish you all a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year 2016 !
Always Remember: Study for your own Knowledge, not only because you are going to sit for an Exam !
