Michael Jordan once said, “I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying”. I have failed my first attempt of PMP certification way back in April 2018. I was upset, disappointed and I thought of not going for another take.
One day; I was going through my LinkedIn post; and saw a mutual friend of mine in LinkedIn who had posted he passed PMP certification in his third attempt. This caught my attention and I sent him a DM; “How to Study for PMP certification”. Believe me I am going to give you all the same advise what he had told me which helped me to pass the PMP certification with flying colors on my 2nd attempt ????
1) Go through 35 Hours PDU – This will help you to refresh the concept of Project Management. Go for Weekend Classes; and make use of your Weekdays revising the concepts.
2) Book the exam 1 month post the training. Students who give exam within 1 months has more success rate to clear the exam. The more you delay; more chances you may tend to forget the concepts you learned. You may be busy with other works and exam would be in queue forever.
3) Exam Outline: 200 multiple choice questions to be completed within 4 hours. Out of 200 questions, 25 Questions contains no marks (In your exam you needs to answer all questions; you won’t be able to know those 25 questions). Grades are given out as “Below Target”, “ Target” and “Above Target” on the 5 Process groups as depicted below:
Initiating: 13% of questions are asked from this domain; followed by
Monitoring and Controlling: 25%
4) For any exam; you need to have a study plan. That’s my funda ????
è Take a printout of the 49 Processes across 5 Process Groups and 10 Knowledge Areas. You will be tested on the exam based on the 49 Processes. My advice to you all is Never memorize the Processes; just go through the same every day and understand the concepts. Example: Why Scope management is required; if you know WHY; then the ITTO’s is easy.
è Read once, PMBOK® Guide, Sixth Edition
è Read the Rita Mulcahy’s
o PMP Exam Prep (Ninth Edition) - It is very well articulated and guide to successfully complete the PMP exam, and be a better Project Management Professional.
o Hot Topics (Ninth Edition) – Flashcards; It is a portable reference to be used to improve test-taking speed and information retention. It is the best way to manage your study.
è Practice Test; you can refer
Take the full length exam of Scott Payne, Andy Crowe and Jospeh Philips.

(a) Application Submission- This included earned PDU's + Prior project management experience
(b) Application Acceptance- PMI reviews the application and accepts it. Post this, the exam can be scheduled. (excluding the scenario of Application entering the audit)
There is no thumb rule for a particular preparation methodology but I will describe what I followed. I will break it into sections for easier reference.
I took 45 days to finish my preparation (excludes PDU's earned and time spent on application)
Weekdays: Studied for 4-5 Hours daily
Weekends: Studied for 8-9 Hours
|PMBOK||Read the book thrice- All topics (This is the Bible of Project Management)-DO NOT SKIP THIS||Extremely helpful for conceptual understanding. Exam is based on PMBOK|
|Rita Mulcahy||Read Risk Management & Stakeholder Management/Attempted all questions at the end of all chapters and read tips & tricks in between||You can read the whole book if you have time in hand|
|Youtube videos by Aileen Ellis, Izenbridge, PMPwithRay||Referred to their videos in case of any specific doubts in a topic or where more clarity was required. Practiced Questions from these videos(Especially the situational questions)||Do not waste your time watching all videos. If the concept is clear, skip the videos|
|Mocks by Tridib Roy||I purchased Tridib Roy's mocks at Udemy and there were a set of 6 mocks (33/ 50/100/200) format. They are really good and give you accurate understanding of your level of preparation||I attempted all of them twice to get my concepts correct|
|Social Media||Joined PMP specific groups on Facebook where a lot of knowledge sharing happens w.r.t. questions/sources/content etc.||DO NOT OVER INDULGE but surely you must be a part of the few groups to gauge your preparation and seek guidance|
Practicing questions based on Knowledge Areas and full length mocks is extremely crucial. This is a paper of time and accuracy. So, knowledge area questions solidify your concepts and mocks ensure you are within your time limits and accurate.
I practiced atleast 4 full length mocks and purchased question banks on Udemy from 3-4 sources to get a maximum coverage on all type of questions. Also, I referred few videos listed above for questions.
Also, always TIME YOUR SELF. Whether preparing or during mocks, keep the time factor in mind.
Have a single minded determination and focus.
This exam is not on memorization but your understanding and applicability in various situations.
I hope all the points I have listed will help the aspirants to kick off their preparation effectively and efficiently.
Good Luck to all!!

I`m not an academic and never was a good student. Just hard work, dedication, supportive family, and my own money on the line.
I did not attend a boot camp and invested less than 400 USD (not including the 405 USD PMI member exam fee)
Once the application to take the exam was approved, this is how I prepared for 54 days (3/8-5/1) and passed the exam on 5/2.
1) https://ricardo-vargas.com/pmbok6-processes-flow/ Learning these processes first will set the foundation for the rest of the preparation journey. I watched Ricardo`s video and used his free tools. Yes, print and then play around with the cut/paste processes as he suggest. This took me a couple of hours for three days.
2) pmmasterprep.com Overwhelmed with the amount of resources out there, I was fortunate to find a reddit post mentioning a podcast by Scott Payne. I listened to all the episodes in one evening. I purchased the PM Masterprep book because style resonated with me. (More below)
3) project-management-prepcast.com Prepcast Simulator and 110 Formula Questions. The simulator is a must. Purchased the questions later because it was a waste of time searching the the internet for EVM and math problems.
4) praizion.com I discovered Phill C. Akinwale on youtube and his free videos are gold, especially the mainline. I watched his mainline video everyday. Then at 1.5x speed as the weeks progressed. You can draw out your own ITTOs, but to save time, I purchased his PMP Exam Key Techniques and Outputs E-Book.
5) A lot of Pomodoros. Google it.
Did I read the PMBOK?
There were suggestions to read it. However, I did not due to time constraints and felt that I plenty of resources. Passing the two Prepcast exams on the first try was enough for me not to change or add anything.
Simulator and Official Exam Experience
I passed 4 x Full length Prepcast practice exams on the first try during the weeks leading up to the exam.
However, the official exam grounded me very quickly because the questions were so vague and did not get one EVM question! Time management is the MOST important factor to pass this four hour beast. I was in panic mode because time was running out. Check out Scott`s exam day podcast episodes on how to get momentum going. On game day, I did not follow that advice and spent too much time on the first 90 questions. Rushed the final 110 questions in 90 minutes by picking out key words and eliminating obvious wrong answers.
PMI postponed the last day to take current version`s exam to the end of 2020 from the end of June. But, I decided to keep going because online proctoring is not available in Japan and wanted to be done with this because of the exam cancellation/rescheduling stories worldwide! Actually, two weeks prior to my date, Pearson cancelled on me at one test center but I was so lucky to find a different test center -Shinjuku- for the same date.

I posted on 3rd March 2020 that I passed my PMP. First of all apologies for being so late with this post. And most importantly would like to thank my nentor in this journey. Mr. Shriram, (Shrilearning) have been the great trainer/mentor during this hardest journey. Yes you read it right. For me it was the toughest challenge I had taken for myself. I am a BA graduate. Passed ib 2004. Since then never touched a book. Very bad in studies. However due to the corporate demand in job to upskill myself I chose PMP training as my goal in 2016. Attended 4 days workshop but never continued studies. Mr. Shriram was not there then may be the reason, i got distracted. But this it was need of an hour for me to be successful in the work i m doing. It was not just passing the PMP, however implementing the same at my daily work. And I saw a add pops up of Shrilearning on PMP program. And Mr.Shriram and Rahul from Shrilearning institute were just there to help me then and there.
They provided me a 40 days study plan. Amazingly it works. Due to high workload and personal challenges I was getting deviated but Mr. Shriram kept on following up and brought me back on track. The content, practice exams provided by Shrilearning are just great. Just follow Mr.Shriram and you have your PMP in hand.
Here are my lessons learned and some recommendations.
1. If you don’t already know, check out the requirements to take the test on PMI.org under certifications.
2. Read PMBOK 6th edition
3. Read PMI Code of Ethics
4. Review material from at least one other source - Rita M , Kim Heldman, Head First PMP.
I struggled to absorb much by just reading and the video lessons by Varun Anand and Sandra mitchell really helped. Plus the PMBOK does not include all material that could be on the test. The other reference materials will include additional details, which definately Mr. Shriram will guide you with or use Google.
I took an online exam prep class from Plural sight. My friend Nitin garg was another important person in my PMP journey, who helped me with exam Stimulators. We read and reviewed the PMBOK and an online portal was provided to review material along with practice exams. I lost some momentum around the holidays, but got back on track 3rd week of Feb, I took planned leave for teo weeks, thanks for my Manager and Organisation for being supportive. I took many, many quizzes - their exam simulator questions seemed close to the ones I remember from the test. It provides an explanation of the question and why the correct answer is right and the other answers are wrong. I reviewed every question and all answers, whether I got the question right or wrong. I learned when I was wrong and reinforced knowledge for ones I had correct. I also made a chart for all 49 processes. It included the definition, inputs, tools & techniques and outputs. I read these over and over many times. I downloaded the ITTO sheet in my mind by writng it everyday until my exam. Also played the Rita's process game twice. Additionally, I reviewed free YouTube videos by Aileen Ellis. She does a good job of breaking down the questions.
I recommend you review one other source besides PMBOK to reinforce material and gain additional info not in PMBOK. Get a good exam simulator and take practice exam to see how you do. You also need to see if you can complete 200 questions in 4 hours.
Above all recommendation and guidance was from Mr. Shriram and Nitin Garg. I just followed them and success was with me.
Once again would like to Thank Shrilearning Institute for guiding me to get my PMP.

Let me start off by saying PMP is not an easy exam. You have to be committed to sit for the exam. PMP doesn’t only test your knowledge, but also your ability to use that knowledge in different practical situations. I did not rush it and from start to finish(including exam end) finished the process in 2months. If you are also looking to become a certified Project Management Professional, follow the below steps to learn how to get PMP certification:
Good Luck !
