When I decided to take the PMP certification exam spoto Information , it happened to be the last exam made up of all single-choice questions to test candidates, so I wanted to seize the opportunity.
There are several key points I want to mention:
The importance of preview
We all know that preview is a good learning habit but it is a bit difficult for employees to do so who do not have much spare time. If you have adequate time, you can take a good preview, writing down some notes on the textbooks. You can always have some time if you squeeze. With the basis of preview, you will find it easier to understand the explanations of teachers.
Attend classes on time
Some institutions offer face to face classes and some online livestreaming courses. The training courses I participate in combine both the approaches. I think both are pretty good. Teachers will inform us of the arrangement ahead of time. They would interact with us and give us some examples to explain some knowledge points. These examples are vivid and impressive which could help us better understand the basic theoretical knowledge of PMP certification.
Most candidates are experienced workers, involving a wide range of industries. Then, every company has its rules and regulations and management procedures. To prevent you from getting into a blind alley, you should understand that the project procedures of your company may be different from what is mentioned in PMP textbooks. It does not mean that the book is wrong or your company is operated in a wrong direction. In contrast, by combining your real working condition with the content in the textbook, you can better understand, digest, and memorize the content of PMI PMP certification.
Basically, I attended every live course. A course may be long or short. I would always watch the replay to make sure that I have watched two times of the course. I would circle key points emphasized by teachers and take notes, particularly when the teacher said that the knowledge will be certainly tested in the exam. By marking out the key points, it was more convenient to sort out knowledge in the later part of the preparation.
You may find it difficult to understand the process groups and knowledge domain written in the textbook. Don’t worry, you don’t have to recite them all. You can master them by systematical learning.
During the e-course, you would be given some time to do questions and interact with your classmates. A good learning atmosphere is also important for your learning efficiency. We could make more progress together in a sound atmosphere.
Summary of preparation
