PMP® Exam: Do I or Don't I?

Are you thinking about applying for and taking the PMP® exam? Have you heard tidbits on what may help you in this process? Does the whole thing seem overwhelming causing you uncertainty on how to begin? Following are recommendations for taking the PMP® exam. Note that these are not guarantees; however, these are from people who have passed the exam. Each person studies and tests differently so consider what will work best for you.

      Plan to take the PMP® Exam within 30 days of class completion.

      Consider taking a training class or self-study course for complimentary discussions to the PMBOK® Guide material, such as training classes PMP Prep Training and self-study material PMP Prep Self Study.

      Purchase the PMBOK® Guide <current> Edition prior to the training class. Acclimate to it so that the class can be used reinforcement of your current knowledge, rather than as an introduction to the PMBOK® Guide materials.

      Complete the application to sit for the exam (on PMI®’s website) prior to the training class, if all pre-requisites have been met. If staff members require a training class to fulfill the pre-requisite for “contact hours”, complete as much of the application as possible prior to the training class and save it online. This reduces the amount of work after the class completion to submit the application, and reduces the overall duration to receive PMI® approval to take the PMP® Exam.

      Budget for the PMP® Credential Fees and PMBOK® Guide fees.

      Some individuals find it easier to print out the application form and draft the information required prior to entering online.

      Spend the last 2-3 days prior to the PMP® Exam only (or mainly) taking questions.

      Set aside at least one 4-hour block of time to complete 200 questions and simulate the actual Exam.

      Supplement this material with another Test Bank, providing different styles and types of questions for practice prior to the actual Exam.

      Visit the test center in advance so the facility is familiar prior to the day of the Exam.

      Review PMI® website tips regarding exam preparation

You can do it - organize your approach and stay the course!
