How to prepare for PMP exam based on PMBOK 5! - Part-2

Hello Friends,

This post is Part-2 of the series of posts - How to prepare for PMP exam based on PMBOK 5!

Click here for Part-1.

In Part-1, we looked into following points-

1. Pre-requisites - Things you must be prepared for before you head towards PMP direction
2. Study Resources - Books and other resources I found most useful
3. Study Plan - Strategic steps, resources and tips for preparation and clear the exam!!

In this part (Part-2) of this post we will discuss more about the content, topics and areas that are most important and preparation strategy for the exam!!

Alright! I'll start with a very important point I've observed and might be quite helpful for you as well.

Look at the above table. Have you noticed that-

23 processes (in green) have 76% weightage in the exam and
24 processes (in orange) have only 24% weightage.

So, by preparing 23 processes, you can cover 76% of the exam!! :)

Needless to say that mastering 23 processes with all ITTOs is much easier then mastering all 47 :)

How about that?

  1. The PMP Certification establishes a common language among project managers and helps each other work within a common framework. Once you have the PMP, you need to consider how you're applying the processes, tools, and techniques to projects. I took a training course for my preparation in and got ready for the exam on day 5!

  2. The actual and time effort taken to create this wonderful article were really great and would like to share this to my friends too...
