PMP Lessons Learned: Practise Lots of PMP Mock Exams
Another proof that it is high time to attempt and conquer the PMP® Exam before the change in 2020. Thanks and congratulations to Jehanzaib Bhatti who just passed the PMP® Exam!
The lessons learned by Jehanzaib Bhatti on this PMP® Exam prep project is detailed below:
I have passed my PMP® examination last month with all five above targets. It took me 6 months to be prepared for the exam; I would like to share the exam preparation techniques, which I used for PMP® Examination.
Exam Preparation Book
I used PMP® Exam Prep by Rita Mulcahy as primary source of my preparation. I read the book three times and one time I read Head First PMP®. Rita’s Process Chart is a very good source of learning the actions involved in all process groups. I solved all exercises of Head First but left Rita Mulcahy’s practice questions for the end of the preparation because I did not buy any simulation. I did not even read a single chapter from PMBOK® Guide but I used it as a reference book for only a few concepts.
I did not waste time in learning ITTOs rather I tried to understand the concepts of ITTOs.
The 47 confusing terms from Edward’s Website and EVM questions were very good to clear out some misunderstanding related to few topics.
I practiced approximately 2500 questions before starting to solve Mock Exams, following are the details of practice question banks:
S.No Questions Bank Questions 1 PMP® Exam Prep (Christopher Scordo) 1000 2 PMP® Practice Exams (Kim Heldman) 800 3 Rita Practice Questions 413 4 Head First Practice Questions 278
I did not buy any simulator rather I solved all free mock exams mentioned in Edward’s website and a few more mock exams, following are the details of mock exams:
S.No Mock Exam Questions 1 Edwell Practice Exam 75 2 Oliver Lehmann (PDF Version) 200 3 Free PMP® Exam Simulator 60 4 Oliver Lehmann (Online) 100 5 PMP®PracticeExam.org (Exam 1) 50 6 PMP®PracticeExam.org (Exam 2) 50 7 PMP®PracticeExam.org (Exam 3) 50 8 PMP®PracticeExam.org (Exam 4) 50 9 Head First Exam 200 10 Grey Campus 200 11 Kim Heldman 200
Edward, I would like to appreciate your efforts for Aspirants; your website is a very good platform for the aspirants to get all the information related to PMP® easily. It is a privilege for me to write the lessons learned from my PMP® Examination journey.
