Thanks Randall, these are good tips that would enable any candidate to pass their PMP exam.
 
Completing a PMP course online or in class might be a better course of action than trying to go it alone with your studies.

Your online PMP instructor for your course will be able to guide you into the right direction as to what to read or study.

You will likely have access to many more free resources and practice tests than you would have if you were trying to search around and piece these resources together for yourself.
 
Another tricky area to pass on the PMP exam is the Project Scope Management area of knowledge. The PMBOK Guide does not specifically discuss tools or techniques associated with the Collect Requirements process. However you will be required to be fully aware and familiar with all tools and techniques involved as some questions on the exam will require this knowledge.

According to PMI, the exam is being updated for 2015.

This could affect the way you study for the PMP certification exam.

New tasks are being added in Domains 1-4. Possibly this content is not covered in PMBOK as such. Surely this will provide a knowledge gap for those who are not fully prepared.
 
Creating your own brain dump online, at your own blog or wiki, such as where you write down everything you know about each domain and relevant task area is a good way to 'see' your knowledge. Once you have all the knowledge out of your head and in front of you, then you can see any gaps in learning. Sometimes, you might even know more than you can think.

Another thing you can do is design your own test/exam questions. For instance, you might write down questions as you read over the study material that you want answers to. You might not even have answers to these questions yet, but searching for the answers in the text as you read will allow you to be more focused and sharp and aware of the material you are reading.

When studying in this way you should just pretend you are trying to teach this material to another student and then ask and answer questions in that way. When you have to justify your answers to questions by providing logical conclusions and supporting your assertions you are more likely to gain a more thorough understanding of what you are talking about.

One study technique that really helped me with this exam is the Survey method.

Rather than just diving in and reading each chapter of PMBOK, you would want to spend a significant amount of time previewing that section before you begin. Obviously, this method works when studying for any exam or subject matter, but especially with PMBOK as it's so complex.

With the survey method, you should preview all course material at the start of every new segment including all charts, graphs, outlines, topic headings etc. Formulate a set of questions in your mind that you should be trying to answer as you first read the material.

This short amount of time that you spend previewing the content will greatly prepare your mind for the upcoming content, so you have a good framework.

This idea works for me really well too, especially when studying a complex subject (though not for math or science related areas). The key is to read all review questions, chapter objectives; page headers and anything that will give you an idea before reading what that section is going to be about. You should easily spend a quarter of your study time on previewing with fifty percent spent on reading for comprehension and another 25 percent spent on review, test questions, etc.

When you have to justify your answers to questions by providing logical conclusions and supporting your assertions you are more likely to gain a more thorough understanding of what you are talking about.
It would not hurt to have a study partner whom you could explain and rehearse the material with. You could ask each other questions and participate in timed quizzes. You can do this best in person, like a local study group, but it also works online too.
 
I really enjoyed 'Head First PMP', a book you can find at almost any outlet online. This book offers 100% coverage of all PMBOK concepts and is a good first or second study guide companion to help you understand concepts in PMBOK. I'm recommending this one to everyone as reading straight through PMBOK without an interpreter (such as guide) is often difficult.
 
The Project Communications Management - seventh knowledge area - is often a hard area for some to grasp. Studying and memorizing this area in particular will assist you, especially if you are having trouble understanding the communications channel formula
 
I have enrolled for the online self training PMP course recently, but the course has very few chapter end tests mostly 6 questions per chapter how do I get access to more number chapter wise quizzes. Please help.

Hi Abhihshek, The entire course of PMP has 83 Chapter end Quizzes and 5 simulation exams so, that seems adequate from teh exam preparation and knowledge testing perspective. Have you tried the simulation exams?

Good day, Bernhard / all - as per pmi.org, looks as if the changes to the test are occurring in January. This was just posted, so details are sure to be provided in the next week/s...

The result does show up as overall percentage and it also lists out how many were wrong and right answers. Probably you have to click on complete test. However, if you are looking at the explanation for the answers then it would be one at a time.

Hi Vinutha, Thanks for tips. I have signed up to take my PMP exam in Jan 2017. Question - is the exam closed book ? am I allowed to bring in a 'cheat sheet' with formulae etc ? Thanks, Julian

Hello, Swapna - the best site (and owned by Project Management Institute) is projectmanagement.com. You will find a 'random question generator' in a blue box on the right-hand side, about half-way down - called "PMChallenge". You will need an account, but your account with PMI, which you used to submit your application works as well.

LaDonna, I just started studying for the exam and am trying to figure the best technique because I learn best with structure. Sounds like I'm headed in the same direction re: studying the PMBOK. My questions for you: After the classes did you go back and review each process as learned? What is the survey method? Thanks

I just started studying for the exam and am trying to figure out what will work for me. I've started with this method and now feel better because I've read a zillion ways but I learn best with structure, however, have never taken a test with so many moving parts! Btw, what is the survey method?
Did either of you or has anyone used the Mindmap from Simplilearn? Thanks so much.

No response needed re: Survey Method - just read your description- my oversight.
