Passed Project+

Passed this morning with an 810. Thankful to have this behind me!

Like others, I found the uCertify material was over complicated and much more wordy than the actual exam. Heldman's practice exams (with the hard copy of the book) and chapter-end exams are OK.

I saw a few things on the actual exam that Heldman didn't cover. I also used the TrainSignal videos from Bill Kulterman - they were useful to see the material another way, but not enough to pass on alone. You really need to know which documents are created in which processes and when they are applied and what they are used for.

I have zero PM experience and studied for this in about 3 weeks.

I used Cold Titanium's mnemonic for the EVM formulas as follows:

CEA / SEP

CV = EV - AC
SV = EV - PV

CPI = EV / AC
SPI = EV / PV

TCPI = (BAC - EV) / (BAC - AC)
When you go the extra mile, there's no traffic.

    I actually plan on becoming P+ certified. I may pursue CaPM or PMP in the future. I have the same book you have, but I am pursuing Server+ at the moment (I think in 2 weeks time I should sit for the exam, maybe sooner).

    Thanks for the tip and congrats man!
    Kindly doing the needful

    While studying, I came up with couple of variations on a mnemonic for the 9 knowledge areas of PM (Scope, Human Resources, Integration Management, Time, Communications, Cost, Procurement,Risk, Quality):

    **** CCPRQ

    Or

    HITS
