First of all let me share that the PMP Exam will really test your project management skills, whatever Books and Reading materials you have read, unless and until you grasp the concept and are aware about the terminology it will not be a cake walk.
I had been studying for the Exam from Feb 2007, when i did my 35 PDU course at astrowix,Delhi chapter and kept the momentum for two months but some how i was not able to schedule the exam due to silly credit card issue .Let me share that i was also under the impression that i can pay the charges through Debit card but this does not work .Finally was able to schedule the exam for august 2007( with new credit card) as i has been preparing quite religiously for last one month and I did not to keep postponing the exam ,since that could have made lose interest in the EXAM .
Final Exam Day
I had finished preparation on sunday and on Monday 27th Aug 2007 , i had scheduled the exam. On the Exam day I just watched Television, as i am quite interested in stocks so was watching the stock market......This helped me to relax before the exam .This strategy works………;) … ,try to focus on something else of your interest and you can relax much more beofre exam.
Here are my suggested reading materials :-
PMBOK Guide -3 times at least
Rita Mulcahy exam prep -4 times at least
and PMFastrack simulation CD-2 times at least
JIMBOk -In case you want to clear doubts and grasp the basic concept this one is too good
1. Keep on reading as much as you can from materials you have decided to refer to but please do not keep changing books.
2. No use using plenty of material, Rita and PMBOK is enough for PMP just stick to these books you will pass.
3.Practice a lot of MCQ (like PMP fasttrack 5.0) helps to get used to the type of questions in real exam but the real questions in Exam is totally different so keep yourself ready for surprises (that is why your experience counts in handling projects )as well as your understand
