Effective Tips to Prepare for the PMP (r) Exam

It is crucial to find the right materials to study for the exam. However, it can be difficult to do so with so many options. If you are preparing to take an exam that you have never taken before, it is a good idea to get the perspective of a professional (preferably someone who is a PMP) to help you plan your study path. When preparing for the exam, knowledge is important. The PMP exam is administered through the PMBOK Guide. However, you cannot rely solely on this guide as it only provides guidelines and covers approximately 75% of the information on the PMP exam.
Learn from others to help you become more culturally sensitive about what you can expect. Remember that you can’t answer all the questions on an exam. However, you can give information about the areas of study and what you need to know. While books are useful, did you choose the right book(s). Different people learn differently. Did you find the right way for you to learn? When the rubber meets the road and you become PMP certified, will you find that your study hours were beneficial?
These are just a few ways to be more efficient in your studies and become more proficient with learning.
PMP Workshop
Attending a workshop is a huge benefit if you are able to. This is a great way to get the 35 required credit hours for your PMP application. There are many great benefits to a PMP Bootcamp:
1. You review all the material that should be covered during the exam.
Nobody knows what the exam will look like. The PMBOK should be used to guide you through the exam. However, the PMBOK only covers 75% of the content. An instructor in PMP knows this and can fill in any gaps with his or her experience from exam practice.

2. This video explains how to study for the exam.
There are certain criteria that the PMBOK considers essential to know. Sometimes questions can be complicated by the specific circumstances of each case, but it is sometimes possible to find the right answer by understanding a single rule. There are certain areas that you should devote more time to than others. It is better to ask a pro rather than guess what you should be learning.

3.Informal Questions:
This is a great opportunity to learn how to apply new knowledge to your job or future job. This is a great opportunity for you to learn if you don’t know how you can implement cost, schedule, and risk structures. Practical application should be encouraged by using basic examples.

4. Relationships:
Classes will be grouped with people who share the same goal. It is important to work together to overcome obstacles. You might just have met someone you will be able to keep in touch with throughout your career. You might find someone in the class you can trust for a future trade, or even a friend.

*Note that the workshop provider must be a PMI registered education providers (REP). An ID should be provided by the company that can be verified by PMI. PMP certified should also be the instructor you are learning from.
PMI Membership – What’s Inside It?
PMI members who take this test save $150, and it doesn’t cost much to become a PMI Member ($139 at the most). Don’t stop there. Make the most of your membership. Access to the “Knowledge Center Virtual Library”, is a great benefit. You can find many books in the “eReads & References” area. Christopher Scordo’s PMP Prep: Questions and Answers & Explanations is one of the most popular books. It was a great reference book that I used to get certified. There are Chapters and Communities of Practice (COPs), in which you can join other PMPs (or asps).
