I have finally passed the PMP after a year of planning to study for the test. The test and even the process to be able to sit for the exam seem very daunting if you don't have project manger in your job description. If you have worked project management process before the test is not as hard as you might think. I only focused on studying for about a month using the Brainbok website and the "Ricardo Vargas Management Process Diagram". Well good luck.
