What amount of study preparation is necessary for the PMP exam? There are a lot of resources online that can help you prepare for the PMP exam. These include simulation exams, prep books, mind maps and flash cards. You may also have sample questions, apps, and other online resources. However, it is easy to feel anxious about the things that need to be re-read, re-read, and consumed again before the exam. As the exam date approaches, the feeling of missing out on “something” is intensifying. It seems that studying too much for the exam is not enough. It is hard to feel confident in your ability to be 100% prepared.
It is normal to feel that something is missing from your preparation, despite having spent countless hours studying. There are many topics that are not covered in the PMBOK(r), such as the HR theories and motivation, which can make or break your exam results.
Relax, it is true that you can’t define what’s sufficient and adequate study for the exam. There are many posts arguing about how many mock tests should be taken in a 4-hour period. 2,4,10?? The answer is that no one knows for certain.
These thoughts might be your first thought when you enter the exam centre.
I wish I had read the HR theories
I wanted to read the glossary again, but I forgot.
. Do I really remember the difference between schedule compression & crashing?
I wish I could have had the time to take one more mock test
…. AND THE LIST CAN JUST KEEP GOING ……
It would be the worst thing if you brought such thoughts into the exam room.
These thoughts are similar in nature to the RANSOMWARE malware. A program that gains access to your system and holds a ransom. These unresolved thoughts in your system will not help you perform better during the critical 4 hours of the exam.
MAKE SURE THAT YOU DO NOT HOLD YOUR PMP Certification AT RANSOM WITH THESE
You can pass with flying colors if you are strong in what you have learned! !
