    ChadAm: Passed June 4, 2011 – First Attempt

    Number of View: 11759
    I successfully became PMP certified on June 4th, 2011. The best part is the accomplishment and the hard part is filling my free time – but it’s not that hard to find things to do.The test is fair and balanced to test your knowledge.My reading:
    • Head First PMP (2x)
    • Rita’s PMP book (2x)
    • PMBOK (Skim)Memorization was focused on:
    • 9 Knowledge areas
    • 5 Process groups
    • Rita’s Planning process steps
    • Formulas and conceptsTo help with memorization I used Cherries spread sheet as a base and updated to my personal preference and study material.

    http://pmhub.net/pmdigest/component/content/article/1-articles/122-cherries-itto-tables

    For the brain dump I prepared to write the 9 knowledge areas, 5 process groups, Rita’s planning steps and formulas. I later decided to skip the formulas as I knew them too well. My entire brain dump took 8 minutes and fit on one side of one piece of paper with room to spare.

    Notice that I did not memorize the other process groups or the ITTOs. I did however know them for the most part due to the exposure during reading, studying and simulated tests.

    Tests I used:
    • Head First PMP online test - (1 week between) http://www.headfirstlabs.com/PMP/pmp_exam/v2/quiz.html
    First time: 86%
    Second time: 94%
    • Rita Chapter tests (1 week between)
    First time avg: 74%
    Second time avg: 96%
    Third time avg: 89.5%
    • Oliverlehmann 75 (1 week between)
    First time: 66%
    Second time: 81.3%
    • Oliverlehmann 175
    Only time: 66.25%
    • PM Study Free test
    First Try: 66%
    Second Try: 95%
    • PM Study Test 2 ($20) – 78%
    • PM Study Test 3 ($20) – 74%

    I found that the PM Study tests helped focus me on areas I had not studied as much. I think it was $40 dollars well spent and helped me pinpoint where to focus. The PM Study site needs some improvements – you must use a different email address for each test you sign up for. If not, you lose access during your paid time. I had paid for Test 2 and then paid for Test 3 and lost access to Test 2 while gaining access to Test 3. Support was able to resolve the issue with another email address but I lost a test that was 50% in progress. Frustrating – but support did what they could so I can’t complain.

    For the test – I marked a few questions but skipped reviewing. I was happy with the results and can now move forward.

    Good luck to everyone.

      Hey,

      Congratulations. I am studying for my PMP as I type.

      I just found this website and read your article. At the risk sounding ignorant, what is “Cherries spreadsheet” and where can I get it from?

    • Andrew
      Cherries ITTO tables is now updated by Chad and is available from PMHUB PM Digest: http://pmhub.net/pmdigest
      (pls check the first article on the page, but pls do browse some valuable tips and tricks in that page too)
