Hi Janvier, PMP certification itself is a project. For instructor it can be a operation but for us it is really a project. For every project, we need to really understand what are different knowledge areas(10) and process groups(5). And remember if you want to succeed in exam think like a project manager.
If you get hold on tools and Technique of each knowledge area, PMP certification will be a success for you.
You should take your time to study and understand the process chart, from left to right in rows, and then, from top to bottom, in columns.
Take your time also to understand the lexicon of terms and the ITTOs. Learn the formulas.
Do not forget to try out as many mock exams as possible till your score rate steadily is above the 80% range.
Wishing you success.
Those are my recommendations to you:
1- PMBOK 6th Edition + Rita Exam Prep Book. Read each in details until you are comfortable with the level if understanding.
2- RMC Fast Track for simulation exams or PM PrepCast - Both are good resources.
3- Do not memorize, but understand because many questions are situational.
4- It might take between 2 - 4 months depending on how many hours you study per day and your PM experience. I assume of course you have the required experience to apply for the PMP.
You can refer to my blog for further details but I did my PMP long time ago:
First read PMP tips from PMI website, which are exam outline, handbook. Then read PMBOK in many times not less than twice times and rita book for understanding in more than one time. After that, practice thousand questions from PMSTUDY, PMPRECAST & Udemy. And learn your mistakes and read from PMBOK again to complete your background. Finally, take rest and book your exam.
1. Read PMBoK at least twice.
2. Mock exams as many as possible
All the best!
Rami covered it all, although you will also need the Exam Content Outline document from PMI because it gives you hints on the tasks to look out for.
Agree with Rami, as well; however, if you have an opportunity, take a prep course as well. I took a 3 day day prep course along with everything Rami outlined.
Everyone will have their own path to successfully passing the PMP - you will need to determine what works best for you and based on how you learn.
