1. Do Not Rely On The PMBOK Guide

When most professional walks into a PMP Training center, they often ask for the material (PMBOK And nothing more) this they do because they’re of the believe that the PMBOK contains all they’ll ever need to answer PMP exam questions but hey!

Do not let anyone fool you, the PMBOK is only but a guideline, it explains the processes that makes up different practices in project management. See the PMBOK as a reference materials rather than an exam prep book. I say this because PMP exams are more of practicals, experience and you’ll need a good prep book to be able to get past the exams.

If you’re gonna sit back and think the 46 formulas you studied in the PMBOK are going to be on the exam questions, then think again. In PMP Exams, you’ll be seeing just 9 out of the 46 formulas you’ve studied. Not saying you should not study the formulas, study them but do not waste much time.

This might sound funny though, but its the pure truth. This is because while you spend time learning facts and figures in your PMBOK, the examining body would be busy creating questions that requires experience, situational questions.
