Good luck in your exam. Keep us posted on the outcome.
I am also studying for my PMP exam so I would give you the following advice based on what I heard from PMP experts: Because you are just a week away, I know you have already done much preparation. Just ensure that you;
1. Do not memorize the PMBOK book or the ITTOs. Try to understand the inter-relationship between the 49 processes of the 10 knowledge areas and 5 process groups
2. Do at least 3 practice exams. I was recommended to use the "The PMP Exam Simulator" by Cornelius Fichtner
3. Get "Rita Mulcahy" PMP Exam Prep 9th edition book, go through it and do exercises and exams. Its really helpful
4. Watch "PMBOK Guide 6th Edition Process Flow" video by Ricardo Vargas
5. Come up with an Exam Strategy on how you will take the real exam. For instance; answer 50 questions and take 5 minutes chill, etc depending on yourself.
6. Control the exam and do not let the exam control you. Psychologically you have to be fit too apart from your preparation. Learn to control panic . Do not be stressed out. Do not get panic. Nothing worse will happen to you if you fail the exam. Do mediation for short time daily
7. Solve easy questions first. Mark long and difficult questions for review later.
I'm assuming you have taken a prep course (online or in person) of some kind OR have made good use of a quality self-study book?
If so, then at this point you should focus less on continuing to "cram" knowledge and spend more time doing practice questions from a quality source. Ideally, you'd like to consistently be getting scores in the 85+% range...
I'd also suggest given how bad Mumbai traffic is that you do a "dry run" to the test center at roughly the same time as when you will have your exam so you can ensure that you will arrive a few minutes early and not be panicking before the exam that you will miss the start time.
Rajesh: I see plenty of great tips above, so I will merely add another vote for Rita Mulcahy's PMP prep book and for any resource from Cornelius Fichtner. Good luck on the exam (and keep us posted afterwards)!
I suggest you take some mock exams, it will give you a better understanding of time management and exam content review.
Thank you for your suggestions.
I will definitely follow the videos suggested by you over the weekend.
