Rita Mulcahy Pmp Exam Prep Pm Fastrack V 8 15

I am very sorry to hear this. She was an outstanding proponent of project management best practices and an extraordinary instructor. Her passing is a great loss to the PM community worldwide. Her legacy will live on forever through her books, I am one of the thousands who benefited from her PMP exam prep courses and books, what a sad ending to an outstanding life. Sudhir

Rita Mulcahy Pmp Exam Prep Pm Fastrack V 8 15


I could not have passed the PMP without her exam prep guide. Strangely enough I started studying for the PMP, and purchased her book, around the time of her death. Her writing and materials were passionate; I felt as if I was her personal student in project management, and I hope that I made her proud that I passed on the first try with her help!RIP in Rita Mulcahy

Rita's PMP prep book was the only book I read for my PMP exam 5 years ago.I feel very sad to find out that Rita has passed away. I was about to search for her book on google when I came across that information ....a year later.May her gentle soul rest in perfect peace.

I Passed my PMP July 1st 2013 with Rita's prep book as my main reference, in addition to fasTrack tool, on my first attempt. When I read these lines I'm also sad and grateful for her wonderful work to share her experience and knowledge for this exam preparation. her spirit is still wit us ... and this will last a long time. May you Rest in peace Rita, and your family can be proud of you for all the work you achieved to help so many people ...

Thanks Harwinder for another interesting article..As per the L-Ls of the folks who cleared the exam, it is reflected that if one is scoring 75/80% or more in the Mock exams like Rita, pmstudy etc, then one can consider him/herself good to go !Any comments on this ?Actually after reading this article one may get a bit scared that one can never know inspite of scoring good in the practice exams that he/she is prepared for the exam..Your views appreciated !

Dr. PDG,Thank you for the spreadsheet!I passed the test on Tuesday and my scores were:Initiation - MPPlanning - PExecuting - PControlling - PClosing - MPProf Responsibility - MPThis came to 76% according to your spreadsheet, which is pretty much in line with what I had guestimated myself, (75-80).I think this thread shows that people have a need for a quantitative assessment. It's good to know how well one did against other people, but it's not enough. I found many questions poorly written (such as using "they" when referring to the project manager in a scenario) and in at least one case there was a typo - "produce specification" instead of "product specification." I had to read that one several times before I realized what the problem was.The other thing that I don't find very helpful is that the percentage of questions and proficiency scoring are based on process groups while the PMBOK (and the exam prep course that I attended) is arranged by knowlege area. I think this would make it harder to know exactly where you might need extra study. However, I suspect other course providers might teach it differently. Personally, I think that learning by process groups makes more sense than by knowledge area - but I can sort of see why it's organized by knowledge area.

@ Anonymous:I'm really sorry to hear that. But, you know what, you maybe just 3 answers short of passing the exam. Here's how:You need at least "Moderately Proficient" in all 6 domains to pass the exam. Even if you are one answer short of getting into the "Moderately Proficient" bracket, you'll end up into "Below Proficient". So, it is possible that you could be just one answer short in each of the 3 domains where you scored "Below Proficient". So, don't get disheartened. Sometimes, it's a matter of luck too. Now to recommendations, I need to get some background first. What is your experience level in project management? What kind of training did you undergo to get your 35 contact hours? Which study material did you use? How much preparation did you put in? If you prefer to respond privately, you can send me a note via the Contact Me form. Good luck.

@ Anonymous:Sorry for the misunderstanding. I had no intention to offend you.Now coming back to the point, you haven't provided a lot of information about your preparation. I'll give a few general suggestions (not in order of importance):1. Don't panic. 2. Don't rush to take the exam again. If you have time (before your 1 year eligibility ends), take time to study thoroughly and let the content sink in. 3. Get another good exam prep book. My personal favorite is Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep.4. Try lots and lots of sample questions. If you can afford, invest in a commercial sample exam set too. 5. Take note of the questions you got incorrect "on the first attempt" specially the situational questions. Analyze them thoroughly and understand where your thought process went wrong. Bridge the gap.6. Read the PMBOK Guide very thoroughly. It can help you answer many more questions correctly. 7. Try to recall your exam experience and write your own lessons learned. Try to fill in the gaps.8. Read some lessons learned posts from successful candidates and see if you missed something.9. Learn the PMIisms. Rita's book is a good source for them. You need to answer the exam questions in the PMI-way to pass.10. Try to read some supplementary material. I have tons on them on site.All the best.

I have been doing technical team lead work on IT projects, and just took the PMP exam because it opens more doors with prospective clients. I read the PMBOK, bought an online course, studied for a week, and passed with 4 P and 2 MP. From my point of view, the designation is not such a big deal and the exam is not that hard. Anyone who has the requisite education and experience to sit the exam should be able to pass with flying colors because the material is just a bit of new terminology and formalized knowledge on top of what you should already know and practise. The thousands of dollars charged by some companies for PMP preparation courses are a big scam IMO.

i have taken the exam twice now with 3MP's and 3BP's and its really disheartening and the striking clause in it was that the exam i took the first time was exactly the same as the second one. i am confused as to if to write again within this month or wait till next month. moreover i prepared using rita's 6th edition book and pmpbok

Hello twice shy,I'm sorry to hear that. It's indeed strange that you had the same set of questions on the exam on both occasions. On one side, it sounds like a bad thing, but the other side of it means that you had known (at least some of) the questions beforehand, and had a better chance of cracking them. It suggests that your study approach didn't change after the first attempt. I suggest that you review the approach with someone who has already passed the exam, before you go for another attempt. Take time to prepare and not rush for the 3rd attempt. Don't give up. Note: You have 1 year from the date of your application approval to pass the exam (in max. 3 attempts). You can drop me a note (through the Contact Me form) if you want to discuss further. Thanks for sharing your experience, and good luck.

Fair enough question, Harwinder about why we complain so much about PMI and the PMP yet still teach courses.First, we have NEVER, do not now, nor will we ever in the future "teach to the exams" be it the PMP other PMI credentials or any of the AACE certifications.As our URL indicates, it is our objective, our mission to produce more COMPETENT PRACTITIONERS. So we teach "best practices" in project management which, if you actually UNDERSTAND them, will easily prepare you to sit for ANY of the PMI or AACE certifications. The reason we have been able to stay in business for so long (this is our 15th year based here in Jakarta, (with collaborative offices in Singapore, Johannesburg, Lagos, London and Anchorage Alaska) is because the graduates of our program are in fact competent practitioners. Which is really what our client companies want. And we no longer participate in or support PMI at all. Yani dropped our Global Chartered REP (one of the very first REP's)in 2001 and I dropped my PMP (#740) in 2003, because PMI no longer represented the values I subscribe to as a life-long practitioner. If you look at our website, we are an AACE Approved Education Provider (AEP#2007) and we are also Endorsed by the Global Alliance for Project Performance Standards to assess practitioners against the GAPPS COMPETENCY standards. -manager-standards/download-latest-update.html . But we are no longer members of PMI. We do belong to IPMA and asapm, as well as INCOSE and the Systems Dynamics Society (SDS) But we shun PMI.....We provide competency development first and foremost, which, oh by the way, is more than adequate for people to pass their PMP Exam. Our price does not include membership in PMI nor does it include the PMP Exam fee. Those decisions are between the client and PMI. This way, I can feel good that the people we turn out actually know what they are doing, and are not just good at passing exams.Explained another way, our commitment is to the practice of project management and NOT to creating more PMP's. Does this help answer your question?BR,Dr. PDG, Jakarta

Hi My name is Johan as the anonymous who didn't pass September the 16th.I have spoken to my teacher at the preparation course and he hadn't heard about failing with 3MP and the rest as P. I've sent a letter to PMI, but honestly what can be done? The test result was sent to me 3 weeks after the exam so you don't get it right away. Perhaps the process is manual and the decision is made in an other way than before? 350c69d7ab
