It’s impossible to assume that the PMP® Exam is not a tough challenge for project managers. But with proper preparation and a good understanding of this test, there’s no reason keeping you away from being a PMP® credential. Thus, in this article, we give you some advice acquired from PM experts.
1. DO NOT ASSUME PMP® EXAM AS A TEST OF FACTS.
It’s not enough if you just passively learn things by heart from the PMBOK® Guide. According to many failed candidates, 80% of the questions are situational. They were shocked by the require-experience questions that they hadn’t studied.
So you need to apply the exam topics in real-life situations. With different concepts in one field, the PMP® exam will give you a situation where one of those concepts is used or best suitable with, instead of definitions of each concept.
2. BE PREPARED FOR LENGTHY QUESTIONS.
Most of the questions are in very long paragraphs, which include both useful and useless facts that you should be aware of to answer. The reason why PMI® does this is because as a real-life project manager, you’ll have to identify the important facts from the unimportant ones for your project.
A technique for this case is to read the last sentence of the question first, then the multiple choices and finally, the entire question. By this, you’ll know what is asked at the end and as you’re reading through the question, you’ll recognize what is relevant to it.
3. TAKE YOUR TIME FOR THE “CHEAT SHEET”.
When entering the testing center, you’ll be given 2 sheets of paper. What is usually done by candidates is to take their first 5 to 10 minutes of the exam to create a Brain Dump to right all the important knowledge coming up to their mind at that moment.
This technique is optional depending on your willingness. But with this, you’re more well-prepared and organized since at the beginning of the test, your brain is still conscious and during the test, it becomes blunt. So the “cheat sheet” plays its role as a guiding star for you not to forget things easily by the PMP® exam pressure.
