-1st assessment with RMC fast track (20 questiosn/chapter), scored 69%
-Begun to work/study really focused on RMC Prep book chapter by chapter,listening to prepcast in-between and wrote down most important things, did 30 min rote mem for formulas,but gave up after 2 weeks
-assessed each chapter with RMC fact track with 50-100 questions, scored (65%-75%),
worst score were time,cost,procurement. Spend more time reviewing wrong Q (exam 3.5hrs, review 8hrs).
13.10 1st RMC Super-PMP exam, scored 73%, and did an extensive review. At this time had answered 1300 Q from RMC decided to switch to PM exam sim
18.10 2st PMP Exam Sim, scored 57%, felt really disappointed, did as usual a review.
25.10 Was my 1st scheduled prometric exam, did not feel ready, was in Brazil in remote area, had to fly to recife, would have been expensive, rescheduled to 4.10 to geneva.
30.10 3st PMP Exam sim, scored 69%
At this time i still did not feel ready, never reached the "required minimum" to attend the exam
but my motivation was dropping fast and i must go whatever happen !
Spend the 2 last days focusing only Earned value and probability question in the simulator
4.11 exam day,60km from hometown, switzerland, did not sleep well, did not do any brain dump, begun my exam, was reliefed that he questions were not that hard, after 20 Q the PMP Prometric application crashed, it took the 40 min to recover my status and i continued were
i stand before the crash, did need 3h40 min, reviewed the 10Q i had no clue at all, changed to of them.Scored at 3h55 and passed
Scored Init and M&C proficient, the rest Moderately Proficient.
Invest between 250-300hrs for all (experience sheet, contact hours, PMP prep), was luckily doing kitesurfing in Brazil
PM Prepcast, well done product, good for 35 contact hours,but takes too long
Be quick in your preparation, dont waste time on too much products, 1 exam sim, 1 prep book, PM precast for 35hrs, formula guide.
Had to buy RMC fast track,installed software (not web-based) because was located in remote areas in Brazil, was a bit desappointed by the product, some questions were wrong due to the 31.8.2011 exam change, update/revison of specific were not communicated there was bugs in the graphical interface, support were unable to correct even with long hours of text on x64 processor, but overall a good balanced product.
PM Exam Sim, was really a tough preparation, often tricky, maybe too much input/output Q, Q explanation were excellent(Hint and PM Book ref).
Almost did not open PM Book, no brain dump, but using an understanding formulas in sim prep.
