    Default Passed Project +

    Woooo knocked out Project + yesterday with a 786! Kind of nice to get back on the passing train after having failed the CIW javascript exam. All I used for prep was the Sybex book through WGU, read through it twice in about 2 1/2 weeks. The Ucertify tests that WGU offers I personally feel did not help, after taking the first 2 tests I skipped the rest as they do not provide an accurate portrayal of what you are learning by reading the Sybex material. Plus they are way to wordy for my liking.

    I'm taking this test later this month, every time I read for it I just hear all the jargon that upper management spews at us during our group meetings and my brain shuts off..

    I'm sure their brain shuts off when we use our tech jargons.

    Congrats Well done - i am planning to take this exam but the cost of the exam is putting me off a bit .

    A search for Project+ on any job boards doesn't yield much hits . Few people i have come across don't even know that this cert exists

    Target 2017

    Congratulations! I passed it, too, earlier today! I registered for it before I realized (i.e. researched its value) that it is probably not worth pursuing for those that haven't paid for it. I'm no fan of PMI, though a member, and think if anyone is wants a project management credential (but might not meet the work requirements for the PMP), go for the CAPM. It's not well recognized either but it is a PMI credential and not much more difficult that project+. PMP is the gold standard. Wish it weren't the case but for those seeking certification in project management at least consider the CAPM. But, to each their own.

    Congrats Charlemagne! To be perfectly honest the only reason I took it was for WGU no other reason.

    T~T Im dying inside as the read the material. Does anyone know where i can get some practice tests for this? I grabbed the transcender on CyberMonday but they seem to go way above the level required to pass.

    Thanks SharkDiver!! And, a big thank you to everyone!! I do want to amend my previous post about Project+. I signed up for it without researching how it would help me fulfill my personal goals. Shame on me for that. Yet, I think it's a good exam and wish more attention was given to it. I think, though, with any certification one gets out of it what you put into it. Honestly, I learned a lot by studying for Project+ and it is really good prep for further project management certifications. I have come a long way since my first post. So, thanks to everyone for the encouragement. Really, you're great people and I appreciate it.

    All you need to pass is the sybex book practice exams and the formula chart from the philips book.

    How bad is this one?

    I'm trying hard to read this book but it's driving me mad. I can not honestly think of a subject I've studied that I've ever been more dis-interested in.

    No surprise to me that ucertify wasn't very helpful for you, though. I haven't had a good experience with that at all.

    I felt the same way. Just set a goal to read 1 chapter a day = Done in 10 days. Don't bother with uCertify, just use the Sybex book exam questions.

    My mentor likes to make me follow the "first attempt checklists" religiously. So I have to take the ucertify practice test not once, but like *3* times. Ucertify is the reason why I'm losing hair. ANd I'm doing fairly well on them, which is very suspicious to me.

    That sucks. I'd talk to your mentor about loosening up a bit. uCertify just sucks as a resource. Bad grammar, wrong questions and answers, etc. If you can score above 85% on the Sybex book questions, you are ready.

    Will do, and that's about where I"m at on most chapters in the book. I agree Ucertify is horrible.. We should all complain and see if they will dump it. LabSim is great, though. I wouldn't mind having that.


    Hopefully i'm not getting too close to violating any NDA here, but on the actual exam do they allow the use of calculators? Or would one even be necessary? I've seen a few questions in uCertify that would scare me on an exam.

    All this talk (all over the forums) about the mentors making everyone use uCertify stuff makes me seriously reconsider WGU.

    I've used uCertify stuff and found it greatly lacking.

    My mentor trusts me enough to let me schedule exams when I feel I'm ready. I earned this trust by scheduling and passing 3 exams my first month after following his requirements (i.e. pass the pre-assessment twice, or with a certain score, etc.). This, coupled with my determination to finish in a single term, has given me basically free rein to sign up for courses and schedule exams at my leisure without any pushback from my mentor.

    I think I remember there being a calculator. It's more important to have the formulas memorized. I wrote them out repeatedly, until I could recite them. First thing in the exam, I wrote out my chart. Helps a lot.

    The CompTIA agreement before you go in to the exam says no calculators.
