You ready for it……
Huh? You’re disappointed? Well don’t worry, I’ve got more, come on, huddle in again.
Here it comes…..
Err…yup! That’s all I got.
What’s that? You were waiting for a big secret? The magic bullet? Right, well, sorry about that then! You see, there really is only one way to pass the exam and that is to know your stuff and there’s only one way to know your stuff – ok, I’ve named two – so there’s only two ways to know your stuff, our old friends practice and study!
But you know what that secret is, that magic bullet, it’s how you study. Some people spend hours wading over the PMBOK manual but really, that’s not it. You really need to understand practical application and know your stuff well and if you are yawning over a dry text book, well it sure is hard to stay motivated! Some people get focused on knowing every single detail and focus in on the stuff that isn’t as important – but how do you know the difference between the ‘really must know the detail’ stuff from the ‘I can just gloss over this bit’ stuff?
The answer my friend is blowing in the wind…ah, sorry, got a bit carried away there! The answer is really in getting yourself a killer PMP exam preparation guide. Now there are heaps of books you read and some of these are great, in fact, I’ll be doing a book review series soon where I’ll cover some of those, but in all honesty and I’m sure you’ve looked at my site and know, I have to recommend PM Prepcast because I honestly just think, it is the best value, best format, best presented PMP exam course that you’ll find. And if you’re anything like me and just lost the time and inclination for studying textbook (you know, full time job, kids, busy, busy) then you can watch these videos on the iPhone out and about, listen to the audios whilst running/walking or in the car on the way to work. I just love it. Full stop!!
