(Mind you I had practice questions given to me in class as well). I required The PMBOK since the CAPM was 100% directly based on its material and Kim’s book as a supplementary guide to understand how the processes are used in a project.
She has written her book in a way which explains the processes and tries her best imo to mimic the project. Booked the exam 2-2.5 months prior to beginning – This should allow adequate time to not only understand the terminology, methodologies and processes, but to learn how they interact. I believe I overdid this phase but I felt it better to feel over-prepared then be in a state of uncertainty during the actual exam.
From what I gathered there were two books which I chose to use.
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge 4th Edition and Kim Heldman’s PMP: Project Management Professional Exam Study Guide 4th Edition.
I ran through the book and marked down how well I fared in the knowledge areas.
I would just like to share my method of preparation. Completed a REP Exam prep course at Humber College (6 Saturdays) 2.
Learning French is one thing, but French on the internet - in chatrooms, forums, text messaging (SMS), and email can seem like a completely different language. Here are some common French abbreviations, acronyms, and symbols to help you communicate via text, followed by some helpful tips and pointers.Number of View: 20209Hi Everyone, I recently passed my CAPM exam on my first try.It was a long study process which involved several hours of reading a night to fully understand the PM methodologies and processes.At first I was bogged down by the amount of material (Over 12 chapters, 42 processes, 9 Knowledge area, and plenty of ITTOs), but I approached it one day at a time, and nearing the exam it all came together.There is also some buffers in case there are days when you just cannot get proper study time (I work until 11 pm sometimes…). I had to make a high level schedule leading up to my exam date.
It breaksdown as follows: I dedicated the first 2 weeks to reading the PMBOK Guide twice.
