As I think about maybe doing CAPM and/or PMP, I took the Project+ as a confidence builder.

My only study material was the Sybex book by Kim and William Heldman. I felt like a lot of the material was common sense based, so for most of it I just read through to understand concepts. Then right before the test I read through the chapter summaries/reviews again. Passing is a 710; I scored a 784.

If I had to do it again I'd study various vocabulary, documents, and formulas a bit more instead of just relying on overall concepts, but I'm satisfied with the end result :).

Just an average Joe

    I too am using the Project+ exam as a confidence booster. I've never done any certs before and don't know how well I will do in a testing situation, I'm good at walking away and applying concepts I read about, just not so good at taking a test about them. I'm also using it as a gauge to see whether I'm of the mindset to actually go and do the PMP as well.

    Thank you for writing about your experiences. This is the second post I have seen that has made mention of knowing formulas and vocab. Stuff like that really helps others know what to hammer in studying.

    And congrats on the pass!
