Hi Annette, thanks for sharing the LinkedIN Group. You felt the exam was easier than the PMP. Was this because it was focused on one knowledge area with deep questions?

Exactly. There were inputs from other knowledge areas, but mostly just focused on one area. Back when I took the exam, it was brand new and there were no study materials, study groups, or resources other than PMP exam stuff, so I just studied the inputs/outputs to Risk, and Risk itself. Now there's all kinds of fancy exam programs and books out there specific to PMI-RMP.

Besides the PMBOK Guide and the Practice Standard for Risk Management (PMI), I found Rita Mulcahy's book very helpful in preparing for the PMI-RMP certification (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/19327353...ASIN=1932735321 )
