    Hello guys,

    You've got time, skim through the PMBOK again and then get your hands on as much Q&A as possible

    You'll do well if you know all the processes. Once your time starts for the exam I would write out all the processes the way it appears in a chart. Also what really helped was writing out the question number and options:

    1. A
    B
    C
    D
    E

    It'll help alleviate splitting your mind with trying to go through the answers and trying to remember which ones you think aren't the answer (cross out the letter corresponding to the "wrong" answer). You don't have to do it with all of the questions, maybe the wordy longer ones or any with options that appear very similar. Just a tip that helped me greatly. Also, take a moment to close your eyes and breathe if you feel overwhelmed. Then get back to it!

    I used the PMP Exam Simulator. https://www.project-management-prepc...-pmp-simulator

    I found it to be easier than the PMP being that it is only 120 questions and there aren't a bunch of ITTOs.

    I used the RMC PMI-ACP Exam Prep system which more than prepared me for the exam.

    I don't think they allow you to dump data as soon as the exam begins. They used to do it but aren't doing anymore.

    I took my PMP exam in May 2017 and was able to. I'm not sure if they've changed that since then. I hope they didn't. It really helped to have a visual of the chart.

    Thanks! That is one of my "textbooks" for my class. I really like it. Very easy to read

    Do you get scratch paper? I don't see how it could be enforced that you can't just write whatever you want on the paper.

    I received scratch paper and two pencils without asking for it.

    Based on Edward Chung's review I decided to try it and it was harder than the actual PMP exam IMO.

    His site in general is the best PMP/PMI-ACP resource I've seen.
