It feels great to pass the PMP exam on the first try. But, trust me, it requires discipline and dedicated efforts.
My preparation started in October 2019.
I got my 35 contact hours training program from L & T Project Management Institute. It is my previous employer’s in-house institute that invites trainers and conducts such training programs for its employees and external candidates.
The training program required students to the PMBOK Guide at least once, even if you don’t get it the first time. So I read it. Afterward, I started reading Rita Mulcahy, which helped clarify the PMBOK Guide concepts. It took two months of disciplined reading to finish Rita Mulcahy. Solving the exercises was very helpful.

I had been aspiring to become a PMP for the last 4-5 years, but because of my involvement in construction jobs, I couldn’t plan it. Then, earlier this year, I took on the challenge and started my journey.
Before I start my lessons learned, let me give you a list of the resources I used during my PMP exam preparation.
Here is my lessons learned for my PMP journey.
I had aspired to become a PMP for almost 7 to 8 years. However, due to long working hours and official tours from 2009 to 2013, I could not pursue it.
I completed the PRINCE2 but the PMP certification has its own charm, as it not only tests your concepts but also how quickly you can decide the best answer. It is similar to a T20 cricket match where within 20 overs, you need to score on average 8 to 9 runs per over (in most, if not all of the games).

I learned about the PMP exam through the internet. Although this certification is not very common in the Indian oil and gas industry; I thought it would add value to my experience as a project manager, so I went for it.
I prepared for the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam in twenty-one days, now, I’m going to tell you how I did it.
The Roadmap ahead
Before you begin: Read blog posts and gain a good understanding of relevant topics.
Week one: Read the Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide (PMBOK) and Rita Mulcahy’s PMP Exam Prep, focusing on major topics and practice questions. Attempt your first mock test.
Week two: Read the rest of the topics in the PMBOK Guide, and attempt two more mock tests. Have an in-depth look at Rita’s book and practice questions.
Week three: Read Rita’s book again, re-read the PMBOK Guide and try three or four more mock tests.

I passed my PMP exam on 20th May 2019. Here is a detailed description of how I did it.
I came to know about the PMP certification exam when I was pursuing my Project Management degree in 2015.
I did some research to learn about its importance and growing recognition; it became my next career goal. I enrolled in a 35 hours training course in February 2017 with BENCHMARK Executive Business School in Accra, Ghana. Then I went back to school in August 2017 for a master’s program in Project Management.
