There are many ways to prepare for the grueling 4-hour PMP exam. We’ve listed some of the most successful here:
- PMP Exam Prep Classes or Boot Camps: These challenging session courses are specifically designed to fill your mind with the knowledge needed to pass the exam. It is often the more expensive route. We recommend Pinnacle 3 Learning prep classes because their classes average grades and help project managers more hands-on than their industry competitors. Most of these courses qualify for contact hours or PDUs that can be applied to your application to PMI.
- Self-Study Efforts: There are many books and teaching materials to help you prepare for the PMP exam, most of them provide a deeper understanding of PMBOK. Progress at your pace Studies have shown that personalized programs help most people complete content faster. It also allows slow learners to set speeds appropriate for their learning speed. in the original course All participants should usually read the content at the same pace and pace. Self-study gives students the ability to speed up or slow down as needed. Make sure any product you buy is PMBOK compliant http://www.readysetpass.com. a good place to start PMP Success Study Guide is PMBOK compatible, easy to understand and highly exam oriented. Including good exam tips.
- Practice Exams (Sample): Practicing with PMP® mock exam questions is one of the best ways to prepare for the real exam. By taking multiple practice tests, students gain more insight into the test format, question types and test speed. 200 questions in 4 hours equals 1.2 minutes per question. You must learn to set the pace of your exams. Many people use prophets. To do this Create columns on the sheet, one for 90%, one for 50% and one for 25% if you know the answer to the question with little or no doubt. Check the 90% column if you think you know the answer to the question, but there may be another correct answer. Check the 50% column if you have to guess the answer. Instead, check the 25% box at the end of the 90% exam. An increase in score says you have 114 * .90 = 104. Likewise, for 50% say 60 under the 50% column, 60* .50 = 30 at the end. Ultimately, the total number of scores is less than 25%. In this example 26 * .25 = 6.5 104 + 30 + 6.5 = 140 (Pass).
As you practice with sample questions Change those questions instead. If your predictions are consistently high, say 180% and you score lower. change the probabilities For me the 80%, 50% formula works best for prediction. You can do these calculations in your head.
develop research strategies
First Test Use the NTS Mcqs simulator at http://www.readysetpass.com to measure your study effort when you know your score. You can focus as much as possible on the areas where you need to work. I do a lot of questions for my knowledge sphere and then work on weak or questionable questions. This way you learn to read the questions well… sometimes you see general or recurring topics.
- If you are a visual learner write things down While you study, I have been writing vocabulary, dictionaries and definitions. It helps me remember things.
- Create flashcards of critical project management processes. Conditions and Equations Write the term on one side of the card and the equation on the other. When I have time, I’ll show my cards. There is no need to memorize all the terms as the test is multiple choice, but you should be prepared to know the definitions or definitions of variables. and how and when you can use it
- Learn what it takes to pass the PMP exam You may have techniques and processes that work better than the PMI method, but passing the PMI exam is important.
- The more experience you have as an experienced project manager, the more difficult the exam will be. The reason is the best answer. Personal experience or best practices will tell you one thing. PMI guidelines may differ slightly. That doesn’t mean you’re not a certified PM. But it can change your test score. Always answer PMP exam questions from a PMI perspective.
