[Extra Speed] Andy Crowe Pmp Book 4th Edition Pdf BEST

Dear Harwinder,Today I joined your elite club. Just coming back home after completing the PMP exam successfully. The topics you covered in the blog were of immense help. Especially the one on PTA. I was not getting good resource on it. You have done great job and my sincere thanks for that. I read totally 3 books during my prepartion Rita Mulcahy, Kim Heldman, and Andy crowe. Here is my rating 1. Kim heldman -- This is a great book as it follows a real life approach not PMBOK approach, it describes the real life scenarios.2. Rita Mulcahy : I used it to get mainly for solved problems.3. Andy crowe: This is also a good book but turns pale infront of 1 and 2.Also I practiced the online test at PM Study.Regards,sujeeth

Hi Harwinder, I passed the PMP exam on april 15, 2010. Here is my storyHi EveryoneI passed the exam on last thursday (april 15, 2010). I am extremely happy and excited to add those 3 letters to my name. I have studied hard and achieved this. Thanks to all my friends who supported me and cornelius, without the prepcast it would not have been possible.I decided to go for the certification on November 2009 and did lot of search online and checked with friends. I finalized on using Prepcast, Andy Crowe's book along with PMBoK.I tried to start with PMBoK first, during December 2009, but it was not progressing well. I purchased prepcast in the first week of Jan 2010 and devised a plan. I heared the prepcast and would read the related topic in Andy's book and then in PMBoK. I completed the first cycle by Feb end. And from march started taking practice tests. I purchased exam simulators and took all the free simulated tests. based on the scores i would study the weak areas once again in andy & Prepcast & PMBoK. From jan 2010, till april 14, i listened to prepcast daily.I visited the this helped me in understanding some of the areas, especially the article on PTA. It explained it clearly, i was confident of taking any questions on PTA formulas after that.I was scoring in the range of 85-90 in all the sample tests, and full mock exams i took. I took atleast 6 full mock exams. It gave me lot of confidence.I also joined pmhub, the discussions there were pretty useful. From there i came to know about JIMBoK. Its a great set of articles by Jim Owens and its an excellent material for final day review. On the day prior to the exam, i went through all the ITTOs, Formulas, Theories and JIMBOk. It took the whole day. Actually i bough Flashcards for final review, but never find the time to use it. To be more precise i have forgotten that i had purchased flashcardsOn the day of the exam,1. Everything i brought, including my hand towel, keys, pens, etc, i was asked to keep in locker.2. I was not allowed to open the locker during exam time and i was asked to place the food items on a table outside the testing area.3. The center told me that there is a limit of 5 breaks that i can take, in my exam time.4. Every time you take a break, you need to do the entire check-in procedure again. it took time.5. You need to click the start within one min, to start the tutorial, otherwise the exam will end.6. Once started you have 15 mins time to go through the tutorial. during which i have written down all the formulas, in the yellow sheets given to me. But actually i never referred to that sheet during exam.7. I took 2 breaks one after first 100 questions and one after next 100 question. Then i reviewed marked questions, then i reviewed all the 200 questions.8. I was not able to find out which are the 25 non-scoring questions, except for a 2/3 questions all looked relevant to me9. I had very few formula based questions, even that too were too simple that you do not need a calculator10. They gave a physical calculator, as the online one was having some issue.11. i clicked the END EXAM exactly after 3 hours from the starting time. And the screen went white immediately. I got terrified. I called the center person immediately. But before she come, some progress bar appeared on screen and then came a 9 question survey.12. I was afraid to skip the survey and thought they might not give me good score ( ) if i did not give them good rating, so i choose Very satisfied for all the questions, quickly, then again the screen went blank and same progress bar appeared.13. Then the "congratulations" came on screen, i was soooooooooo relieved.As i said i am extremely happy to do this. I hope my experience will be useful to someone who reads it.All the best to all aspirants, dont worry, the exam is not as tough as people make you believe it to be.RegardsPrasannaa.S

Hi Harwinder,Here is my lessons learned for CAPM.I guess it is about time I put in my 2 cents of CAPM wisdom. When I went through a post on "Lessons Learned" last month on , at that time somewhere deep down, I will post my experience soon. Today, I cleared CAPM and I'm sharing my strategy and "Lessons Learned" in this post in the hope of helping CAPM/PMP aspirants out there.Lesson 1: So, you've decided to appear for CAPM/PMP examination, your application is approved and you've a full one year to pick a date. Go set your exam date right away. Whether you chose a date after 2 or 3 months is entirely your choice, but do pick a date. If you've a deadline in front, you'll strive hard to meet it.Lesson 2: Make a study plan. If you want to take any formal/prep course, it is your wish but do yourself a favor and start devoting atleast 1-2 hours daily. Pick your books, follow atleast two as it'll make sure that you don't miss a concept not present in either of the one. I followed "Head First PMP" and "The PMP exam: How to pass on your first try". But you may want to go for the books written by "Rita Mulcahy" as well.Lesson 3: Do study PMBOK guide. I didn't follow it once and it was a mistake. You may not like it at first go but you can finish "Head First" and then come to this book. When I was giving practice tests, I found that few concepts were missing from the books I followed and they were present in PMBOK.Lesson 4: If you still don't want to follow PMBOK, you can go with "Q&A's for the PMBOK Guide Fourth Edition by Frank T. Anbari", it is a book published by PMI and you may want to start testing yourself along with your study plan. I used to mark every incorrect MCQ in a separate notebook, write down the key concepts it is based on and it was my quick refresher on the day before the exam. I reiterate that analyzing all incorrect questions will help you reap rich dividends.Lesson 5: The basic difference between CAPM & PMP is that the former is 100% PMBOK and the latter is 60-70%. Also, CAPM will grill you on ITTOs much more than PMP. So, you should make effort in understanding ITTOs. I purchased eFlashcards course by Cornelius Fichtner and though I couldn't go through all flashcards (Read: terrified by their sheer number) but I did make an effort to go through ITTOs flashcards (they total to 167 in his course).Lesson 6: When you start giving practice tests, try and understand the question at first, map it to the Knowledge Area and think of the answer without looking at the options. It'll help you in a gaining an edge where speed is concerned. I still remember that I scored 40% in my first practice test but during the course of preparation, I started completing the exam in an hour with decent score of 80%+. Today, in the real exam, I completed it in around 55 minutes.Lesson 7: I was lucky to get hold of JIMBOK on , they are concise notes from PMBOK guide and I owe one part of my success to them. Search for JIMBOK in " ".Lesson 8: Focus on Quality & Risk Management's tools and techniques. Make a note of all graphs, EV formulas, CPM etc. Get a good hang of them.Lesson 9: During the exam you must read each question carefully and make a note of words such as 'except' etc. Also if you find absolutes in the answers, weigh other option carefully e.g. if one of the answer choice to a question is "All Processes need to be followed in every project", take a look at other options as well. This option is most likely not the answer.Lesson 10: Do not put a gap in your preparation. Start diligently, don't lose your focus, nail this exam at fist go.Though, I appeared for CAPM, but these tips can be taken into consideration for PMP as well. For free sample practice tests, check the section "Most Popular Content" on .Best of luck to all aspirants.Regards,Sunish Chabba, CAPM 076b4e4f54
