thanks a lot. PMBOK its like encyclopedia and Always need further details and explanation, RITA is the best to understand the PMBOK.
Don´t forget the day of the exam. :)
Get up in time. Have a good breakfast. You will need the energy.
Plan some extra time for unforeseeable roadblocks or detours on the way - it's better to wait and have a coffee at the test center than arriving too late. Just make sure you don´t have to panic just because the car in front of you is going slower than normal.
During the exam (very personal view):
Do not panic! You are prepared so you know your stuff.
Read the question carefully. Click on the answer which your knowledge tells you is the right one - stop thinking back and forth; no "marking for review".
One question, one click, next.
If you need a break; take a break, go to the restroom, take a deep breath, throw some fresh water in your face and get back to it.
Honestly, even if you think if quitting... don't do it. Hang in there, click through the rest of the questions.
If it worked: Enjoy the feeling. Go home, open a beer, a have a cigar or do whatever makes you feel good in that moment. You deserve it.
If it did not work: Do the same... :) And then schedule the next exam.
Before start & during exam following can be opted for better result
1. You must take good rest and must be fresh on the day of exam
2. When you sit for exam , try to jolt down the key formula, ITTOs on rough papers they provide
3. In tutorial session, takeout sometime i.e 5 mins out of 15 mins for first break and fresh after writing keys things
4.Once you finish almost 90-100 Questions take second break and relax your mind
5.Do not spend more than 2 mins on any question or otherwise mark it for later
1.Head First is known as Idiots guide but it explain the concepts in a simple terms i.e easy to understand
2.Rita is also very good to consult for any exam
3.PM Fast track is a good simulator that can help in practicing the multiple choice questions
If the time is almost over a good technique is to read fast the answers BEFORE reading the question.Then, CAREFULLY, read once the question.
In this way, two of the answers appear obviously wrong and you are ready to choose between the remainig two answers without re-reading them.
Thanks Hossam for posting your experience and Congratulations on passing the exam.
Really good post
Some good advice here for PMP aspirants :-)
