Hello Rajesh

I can offer one tip about answering exam questions ...

Read answer options first in the reverse order (D-C-B-A) and then read the main question. This way you will read each answer option without fail and by the time you finish reading answer options, you can guess the question in most cases.

This option reduces some stress as well.

I like that tip, Mahesha. It reminds me of how I memorize my lines in a play: from the end to the beginning. Every time you finish the new portion you move into an already memorized portion.

Same advice for any other exam.
Get plenty of rest the night before and eat a good meal so you can think clearly.

This is especially true with the PMP because it's not testing your ability to regurgitate information from the PMBOK. It's full of scenario based questions to test your reasoning ability.

"It's not testing your ability to regurgitate information from the PMBOK". Brilliant.

Belated good luck for the exam, Rajesh - I'm confident you passed it with flying colors!

my best advice I can give:
1. Make sure you go in confident. Having a positive look going in can change the outcome.
2. do not second guess yourself. You know the information, so don't overthink it.
3. Use the tools within the test. Use the strikeout, the highlighter, etc. These help ease the nerves as you go.
4. Take the full time if needed. It is not a speed test.

Good luck! You will do great!
Let us know your comments on the exam, Rajesh. All the best!
