Project+ exam is scheduled for Wed, March 28. Any last words of advice?

Primary study material has been the Sybex Project+ Study Guide 2nd Edition and the practice questions.
Supplemented by reading various PMP blog posts, https://pmstudycircle.com/ in particular.

    Good luck! It's been a while, but I don't recall the Project+ was too super tricky if you have a pretty good handle on the terminology and basic theory.

    Good luck!! My tips are know the vocabulary and terminology. A lot of questions will expect answers with key terms. ;)

    I thought all the material was deeply dry. But the PluralSight videos were clutch for me.
    If you have a subscription, maybe go thru them in high speed. If not, you should be good anyway.

    Good luck!! Let us know how it goes

    Good Luck!!! I watched the pluralsight videos a few times through as well, they were really helpful. The sybex book was good too, if not a bit boring. However, if you have a command grasp of the terms in the book, you should do just fine!

    Vocab, vocab, vocab. Understand the phases of a project and what occurs in each one. Thoroughly understand conflict resolution per PMBOK even if it's not the way the real world handles it! The exam had way more Agile questions than I had anticipated but luckily I was familiar with it so I did fine.

    Thanks for the tips. I'll spend some time reviewing the Sybex glossary this weekend.

    The Exam Objectives document from CompTIA looks like a pretty good review outline itself. I'll spend some time with that as well, along with chapter summaries and the 1000+ practice questions from the Sybex books.

    Passed with a score of 835!

    Most questions were pretty straightforward. A few where the questions were clear but the answers were vague. "Best" answer type thing. And one or two were just best guess.

    Over all a good experience.

    Congrats, great score! I wish I spent the 39 minutes I had left to go through it for a better score but when all you need is 700 and you know you have it, the submit button looked good to get back on the road early for my 2 hour drive home from the testing center!

    I only marked one for review and then didn't change my answer. The questions I wasn't 100% on I went with what I thought was best and saw no point in going back to it.

    2 hour drive! Holy crap. I am lucky with a testing center about 30 minutes from me.
