Thanks for your reply
Don’t get discouraged, hopefully you will make it in your second attempt.

PM PrepCast is a good resource and also I suggest reading Rita Mulcahy exam prep book if you didn’t already. Try to concentrate in solving simulation exams on areas where you scored lower and analyze your answers.

Good Luck with your second attempt.

My request is to spend some time to understand the professional ethics of project managers. All your answers must be in alignment to it. So be aware of it, and self check whether your answer is in agreement to it, before choosing the right answer.

Rita Mulcahy's exam prep is a good option to get prepared. Check it on this link: https://rmcls.com/ and look for the preparation books and simulator...
I hope you're doing well in your studies! I had also failed my first attempt, but just passed my 2nd attempt yesterday. I used the PM Prepcast Exam Simulator, which was excellent. I may be the only person on the planet that did not like Rita Mulcahy's book, but I did not find it useful in my studies. I found "Head First PMP" as a resource and found it extremely helpful - it teaches the topics in a different way and has a lot of workbook questions (not exam-type questions, but refreshers, to ensure you grasp the concepts).

Hope that helps, and good luck to you!

Hi Sheri,

I failed my first attempt, and plan to take my second attempt in a few weeks. I have used Heads First and PM Prepcast so far in my study plan. Anything else you would suggest prior to the test?
