I appeared for PMP Certification test today (14-Jan-2020) and status - Passed. >> The PMP e-learning materials and multiple sets of exercises by Simplilearn was really helpful. >> The training sessions by the faculties are great. I attended the VLC session of Manjunath Nagaraju (9-Nov-2019 to 7-12-2019) and also gone thru recorded contents of classes conducted by Tim Jerome (2-Dec-2019 to 17-Dec-2019). I wish to thank both the faculties for their contribution to my success. >> Thanks to Simplilearn team for all their effort in making the whole experience outstanding. >> Sharing few pointers below for future PMP aspirants. 1) I strongly feel SImplilearn Course content + Live Training Sessions + PMBOK-6th Edition are good enough to pass the exam. 2) I completed the whole process in 65 days days time (i.e from 9-Nov-2019 to 14-Jan-2020). I suggest to take it like a project with a dead line and try to achieve it. Pay the exam fee (after getting clearance from PMI), fix up a schedule between within 1 to 2 month by blocking your date for the exam. Taking this call is important. Once you decide the date, your count down to exam begins and you get lot of positive energy from within to make it happen. 3) I had bought a RITA Mulcahy PMP Exam Prep 9th Edition for preparation. But, I found it to be having a different approach to the study process. After going through some of the chapters, i started getting bit confused and dropped the idea of going through the RITA Book. There is nothing wrong or right about the book - but that is a completely different approach. If you have plenty of time, then think of it/ else there is no need. It's my way of looking into the Book - take your own call in deciding for the book. 4) The PMP exam is not easy, but sincerity and consistency matters. 5) Must go through the complete PMBOK Guide 6th Edition minimum 3 times to understand it from exam perspective. Do not miss the Part-2 (starting from page-539) and Par-3 (starting from page-637) of the PMBOK 6th Edition. Also go through Appendix X3, X4, X5, X6 and Glossary. The PMBOK Guide is like a Holy book Bhagavad Gita/Bible - the more you read, the more you enjoy it and get more clarity of the said process and concepts behind it. Every word in the PMBOK is a carefully chosen word and is important. Read it from knowledge perspective, you will enjoy it more. 6) Go through the virtual classes sincerely. Both VLC sessions and self-learning material helps to clarify things in a great way. If possible go through recording of 2 faculties (which is allowed by Simplilearn) - it helps. 7) Will suggest to use pen and paper to write the complete 49 Processes (ITTO) and key concepts of each Knowledge area in your own way by your own hand, which will help you take a quick walk-through of complete processes in 2 hours on the last night before the exam. 8) Write all 49 processes by using acronyms (e.g. - Develop Project Charter = DPC) in a tabular form as shown in Page-25 of PMBOK. It takes 5 to 7 minutes to write the complete table. I guarantee, after writing it for 7-10 days, you will not forget the 49 processes for rest of your life. 9) The PMBOK Soft copy is highly protected material and you can not highlight on it. Preferably purchase a hard copy of PMBOK-6th Edition from Amazon/ or from any other authorized seller. Break the binding carefully to single pages and put it in a ring file so that you can take out a small part of the book for reading purpose. Use a florescent highlighter to mark the important points/concepts as per your need. 10) Practice the 8 sets of the questions at least 2 times. More than 2 times it may not be helpful, as you start remembering the questions and related answers also. Do it in an exam mode of 4 hours of focused time without distraction. 11) Please reach the exam venue/hall at least 30 minutes before the scheduled time. Reaching late might lead to cancellation of your schedule and the exam fee may get forfeited. Must carry an original valid (not expired) Govt Id Card - Passport preferred. You will not be allowed with anything other than your Id Card to the hall (you will have to leave paper/pen/pencil/eraser/calculator/key/cell phone/wallet/handkerchief etc. in the locker outside the hall) 12) Last but not the least - be confident and keep your motivation level high for the 4 hours in the exam hall. Answer all 200 questions to the best of your knowledge and leave the rest to GOD - HE will take care of it. Best of luck to all my friends going to appear the PMP exam in future.
