Network:9618



What resources would you use to prepare (i.e. books)? If you already have taken the exam, did you find the experience easier or more difficult than the PMP Exam?

I did the PMI-SP. I only read the PMBOK and other recommended PMI documents - there wasn't near as much when I did it as there is now. Two weeks before the exam, I purchased mock exams.

Thanks Stéphane. My challenge is going to be limiting / focusing on just a few resources. But I am sure the mock exams will be key to passing PMI-SP exam.

Hi,
When I took the exam, I only read Practice Standard for Scheduling but at that time I was working as a Senior Planner so the exam was not a big deal. I believe you can make it through it.
