Raheel -

If you are targeting PMBOK Guide 6th edition-based exams, that will be after March 26. There is no deadline beyond that as PMI hasn't announced a target release date for the 7th edition yet :-).

As such, you have ample time to develop a learning plan suited to your learning style.

If you were referring to the current version of the exam, that's a different story. I'd suggest developing a learning plan to get ready to write it by the end of January so you have sufficient time to re-take the exam in case you don't pass on the first try.

In general, using a study guide of some type combined with lots of practice on exam practice questions is a good approach. For many, taking a prep course will help to increase their confidence level.

Raheel,

Like Kiron, study guide and lots of practice questions/exam simulation.

I don't believe there is much that is adapted to PMBOK 6 yet, but PMBOK6 is mostly the same content presented differently.

Study must be similar!

You really have to know your own learning style to know what approach will work best for you.

Two "good" practices which seem to help most folks are doing lots of practice exam questions from a reputable source until you are scoring in the high-80s, and taking a PMP Prep course from a reputable provider.

Good luck!

Hi Raheel, here is the study plan which I followed:

1. Read PMBOK once without worrying to memorize anything at all.

2. Memorized 47 processes which were I guess page 61 in PMBOK Guide 5th edition.

3. I followed Rita's PMP Exam Prep Book and read it once without forcing myself to memorize anything, did not attempt the questions at the end of each chapter.

4. Read Rita's book again but this times I was making notes of definitions and terminologies given in the. After finishing the book than I went for questions at the end of each chapter (at once) to have a fair idea of my weaknesses in different knowledge areas.

5, Surprisingly the results were more than 80 %..

6. Next I went for Crosswind Learning Exam Simulation Booklet and PMP Exam Prep Question, Answers & Explanation by Christopher Scordo.

7. The last was Rita's PMP fastrack.

8. This all amounts to attempting around 3000-3500 scenario based questions from different sources.

8. I did not actually memorize any ITTOs because after reading them so many times and understanding each process would let you figure out at least 70% of ITTOs if not all.

9. Time distribution for me was, 300-350 study hrs in total. 3 hrs per day and 6 hrs on weekends and it took me around 3 months to finish all of the above.

10. Please remember the book references are valid for PMBOK Guide 5th edition and
not for 6th edition.
