I took & passed the exam!!

1) I used the Crowe book and took the quizzes at the end of the chapters.
2) I figured out some special "mind maps" to help me memorize the entire chart verbatim + the list of formulas.
3) I didn't memorize any of the inputs or outputs to the 42 processes. I did know which tools went with which processes.
4) Then I took the final exam twice and got a 95% on the 2nd try (mainly because I had already memorized most of the answers).
5) Took the exam & passed!
6) One suggestion: Bring a non-zipper sweater or dress in layers. When I got there it was blazing hot, then it got freezing cold after 2 hours. I say non-zipper sweater b/c they will tell you that no outwear is allowed in the test room. They would not let me bring in my zippered hoody.

Gilwood, PMP!
