Read PMP exam outline on PMI website, read PMBOK not less than 3 times, read rita book for understanding, practice not less than 3000 questions from PMP websites and relax and good luck!!!!
Suggest after much of the studies and mock test, relax the brain a day before your real exam. i.e. dont take a mock test a day before your real exam. Just go through your notes.
Carve out space to study either in a group or away from distractions. You need to be able to concentrate on what you are trying to learn. That was key.
Also, ensure you go in confident. Remember, you know this, you got this :)
1st. Cast aside all your PM related experience. Focus on what the PMBOK or your guide teaches.
I had the Rita guide and the Head First PMP book which i refer to as the comic book - for easy digest when i am in no mood for serious studies.
2nd. Be consistent in your study plans. I did daily studies from 5 - 7am. At times, can do about 6 - 10 pages, at times i stuck at 4 pages and unable to carry on. It's ok , we are humans.
3rd. Give yourself an off day a week from studies. We may be at the age where loooong hours starting the books may not work anymore. Worse of all, if you kids come looking for you during study time.
4th. Take all the free PMP exam questions and closer to your exams, buy a full fledge exam simulator . Practice practice and more practice.
5th. If time permit, read the text once more. Do the mock exam questions again.
I passed on 1st attempt and this is the most challenging exams i had ever attempted. Best wishes to you.
With so many people taking the exam and failing it the first time, it's important to select the right resources, especially a course that will not only provide you with the required 35 hours of formal project management training, but that will also prepare you for the exam.
You'll also want to practice with a quality exam simulator. I recommend you select a quality PMP® exam prep course that includes an exam simulator with at least 1000 questions.
There's much more to it, but the course and exam simulator are key.
