I received my Project Management Professional Certification in January, 2011. I’ve been asked by several people on my strategy as I only had two-weeks to study before my exam date. Here was my strategy. Please note this may not work with everyone.
PMP Exam Prep Strategy
Tools: PMBOK 4th edition, Crosswind PMP Exam Success Series: Bootcamp Manual
- Before doing any studying, I took the 200 question assessment that was provided by Crosswind CD (back of the book). The assessment showed process groups that I needed to improve.
- I started studying each of the process groups, taking the practice test along with the CD assessment for that process group. I focused heavily on process groups that I scored low based on the initial assessment.
