Yamina, a German-based working mom, passed her PMP(r), while raising her young children. This article will outline her strategies. Learn how to pass PMP(r).
Yamina wanted her PMP(r), to further her career and to learn PMI’s method for managing projects. She felt that the PMP(r), would give her an edge when dealing with clients.
Yamina spent 30 percent of her study time trying to figure out what she should do before coming to ExamsPM. She also read articles and blogs about PMI. She was most concerned with understanding how to create a study plan, prepare for the PMP(r), and make sure all the components of the PMBOK(r). She would not spend 30% of her study on the exam requirements if she had to redo it. Instead, she would come to ExamsPM directly.
After looking at many training options, she decided ExamsPM was the best for her needs. She watched all lectures and practiced all the questions over several months after enrolling in ExamsPM’s PMP (r) Training Course. She also attended all live training sessions, when they were available.
Here are her top 3 tips for anyone who is interested in taking the PMP(r).
1) Learn the PMBOK(r).
You should read the PMBOK(r), at least once, to ensure you are familiarized with the key concepts.
The PMBOK(r), which forms the basis for the PMP(r), exam, is the PMBOK(r). It explains how PMI expects project managers to manage successful and profitable projects. Anyone who wants to take the PMP(r), should have a good understanding of how the ITTOs make a process and how the processes create the Process Groups. The Process Groups are a timeline for the project.
2) Learn the math
Yamina reviewed and practiced more of the math section of the exam during her study, as it was new to her. She spent a lot time memorizing the formulas, especially EVM and contract types Formulas.
You need to not only know your formulas (sidenote: ExamsPM has an Excel formula guide), but also how to interpret the values. What does it mean for a project if Earned value is higher than Planned?
3) Learn about PMI-ism
Yamina found that the majority of her exam was filled with situational questions. She would not have known what the PMI way to do things if she hadn’t done all the practice questions. To fully understand PMI-ism (the PMI way of doing things), before you go to your exam, be sure to answer as many questions as you can.
Take the time to read the Rita PMP(r), and answer all questions. Don’t skim any questions.
Practice, practice, practice! This is the best way to prepare for the exam.
Pro Tip: Prometrics will randomly select 200 questions from the PMP(r), when you walk into their exam centre. The computer system doesn’t know which question is math and which isn’t. It is possible to have no math questions on your exam and for up to 30% of the exam questions to be formula-based. However, in most cases, you can expect between 5-10% of your exam questions to be math-related.
She said, “Thanks [ExamsPM] for your dedicated Support” and “Excellent Learning Platform.”
