I'm just glad it's DONE. Got a 765. Not bad for 2 hours of sleep. Used the Sybex book and a ridiculous amount of caffeine.

For whatever reason, this stuff bores the heck out of me. I tried spread by studying out, but I just couldn't stay focused. As it turns out, fear of failing and wasting money is a pretty good motivator for me.

Also, for anyone wondering, you do get a calculator for certain questions that might require one. Unfortunately for me, they didn't provide the formulas you need to answer those questions. I had to skim over that chapter this morning and didn't have time to actually memorize all that :/
Fantastic. The project manager is inspired.

    Congrats I got this scheduled tomorrow and I feel exactly the same about this material as you do, so hopefully I can get a passing score.

    Congrats on passing! Memorizing the formulas helped me. They are basically gimme questions, if you have them memorized.

    Congratulations!

    NoSoup,
    Definitely memorize those formulas. There's only about 8, but you will need them.

    Congratulations on the pass, and I definitely agree about the boringness of the material!

    What's next on your plate?

    It's boring material because so much of it covers rote paperwork or boring conceptual details detached from daily activity.

    Congrats on the pass, though. Now go get some sleep. :)
    Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.

    Great Work! Congrats! I choose not to list my degrees or certifications but I passed Project+. Sybex material was all that was needed to pass. That said, most study guides are really dry and don't reflect the true nature of project management. It's not my favorite topic but after the exam I read more about it and like any subject, a gifted writer can turn what seems like a boring topic into an interesting one.

    Again, congrats!
