Passing PMP exam has been one of my dreams, not just a career goal. The sound framework it provides for project managers, it’s value in the industry, and above all – the confidence I can gain at my job by knowing that I am covering all the bases on the project – is something I always wanted to attain.
Thus began my PMP prep journey.
As anyone does, my first step was to google “PMP Study Plan”. 🙂
I must say, with tens of thousands of results, and hundreds of sites offering all kind of programs, I was beginning to feel a sense of overwhelm.
On investigating on ways to pass the PMP exam further, in a short space of time I came upon an article about an earlier PMP student that shared her 4-weeek plan, on Shiv’s PMESN.
As I dug more, I came across Dan and Shiv’s PMP fast-track program on how to pass the exam within weeks.
The way it was explained on the webinar – I instantly understood it, was in awe of that coaching and was sold.

My preparation from then was simply following the 5 week plan from Dan and Shiv’s Last Mile Program (I heard it is even better now). This I completed within 4 weeks.
During this time I also practiced writing down the ITTOs daily after completing each knowledge area.
I understood most of them, but practicing them daily made it easier to remember. Then I reviewed each topic with the Rita Mulcahy Book.
Of course I did not read the entire book, just the notes and the questions on each topic.
I utilized the free simulators that were recommended and I was consistently scoring in my 80s.
Also, downloaded a PMP app (few here) on my phone that provided PMP questions on each knowledge area.
I made sure that I was consistently doing some form of PMP studies.
To tie off everything I studied the main definitions under the Planning process group. I knew my formulas, was comfortable with ITTOs and I knew the process chart in PMBOK guide.
My result – Above Target in all areas.
Thanks a million Dan and Shiv.
