Therefore, if you want to get that certification, you must of course be qualified to take it. The qualifications are pretty simple. If you are a high school diploma holder, then you need to have at least 5 years of project management (PM) experience. If you have a bachelor's degree, however, you only need 3 years exposure to PM to be able to take the PMP exam.
As with any exam, success highly depends on how well you are able to prepare for it. This is the very reason why many articles and websites - including books and manuals - have been dedicated to PMP exam preparation. This article, however, will focus on making use of the material- that is, how the questions are worded - will help you pass the exam.
Learn to Distinguish the Icing from the Cake
This does not mean that to pass the PMP exam, you need to have cake as your lunch or snacks. Rather, this points out to the fact that some questions in the exam may contain a lot of information - some of which are relevant, others are plain flowers. Your challenge then is to distinguish what's relevant and what's not.
Remember that not all the time do you need to make use of all the words (or pieces of information) on the question. Some of them plainly exist to distract you. Now that you know this, you must not let those useless pieces of information distract you from your goal - that is, to pass the PMP exam.
Be in the shoes of the Project Management Institute (PMI)
Remember that the PMP exam is about the universal standards of project management. This is exactly the reason why there's a PMP course. Therefore, when answering the questions on the test, take out your personal hat and replace it with PMI's. How do you think will the international governing body of project management answer the question? In essence, sometimes, to pass the PMP exam, you need to set your experiences aside - and focus on the set theories of the discipline.
Remember that there's Only One Correct Answer
All items in the PMP exam are in the multiple choice format. Therefore, among the four choices (A thru D), there is always one correct answer. Sometimes, it would feel as though more than one is the right answer. When this creeps into your consciousness, focus on the most appropriate response. Don't be misled by other flowery pieces of information.
There you have it, ladies and gentlemen: a few notes in properly reading through the questions in the PMP exam. Once again, to be successful at getting that highly coveted PMP certification, be aware of the questions - in fact, be super aware of the questions. That's one of the surest ways of getting that title.
