Free PMP® exam tips:
- Use “Process of Elimination”- When you're stumped on a question, use the process of elimination. For each question, there'll be four choices. On your scratch paper, write down "ABCD." If you can safely rule out "A", cross it out of the ABCD you've written on your paper. Now focus on which of the other answers won't work. If you determine that "C" won't work, cross it off your list. Now you've got a 50-50 chance of finding the correct choice.
- Reread ALL questions containing negative words such as "not," "least" or "except."
- Check for qualifying words such as "all," "most," "some," "none," "highest-to-lowest" and "smallest-to-largest."
- Check for key words such as input, output, tool, technique, initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling and closure.
Here's a PMP® exam tip that can work with many of the questions: Identify what the question wants for an answer, and then look for an option that doesn't belong with the other possible answers. In other words, find the answer that doesn't fit with the other three options. Find the "odd man out." Here's an example: EVM is used during the___________________.
- Controlling phase
- Executing phase
- Closing phase
- Entire project
Notice how options A, B, and C are exclusive? If you choose A, the controlling phase, it implies that earned value management (EVM) is not used anywhere else in the project. The odd man out here is D, the entire project; it's considered the "odd" choice because, by itself, it is not an actual process group. Of course, this tip won't work with every question—but it's handy to keep in mind.
Risk response is generally associated with four types of action: Avoidance, Transfer, Mitigation and Acceptance.
The communications channel formula is N (N – 1)/2 where N is the number of people on the team.
Progressive elaboration- Proceeding in steps and adding more detail, and is most often used when creating project scope, determining requirements, and defining risks and their mitigation plans.
Cost and staffing - These are generally low at the start of a project, increase through each progressive phase, peak during the intermediate phases, and then drop rapidly as the project reaches closure.
Risk and uncertainty - Generally risk and uncertainty are considered to be at the greatest level during the start of the project but the certainty of project success progressively improves through each phase.
You’ll be given scratch paper to take with you to the exam station. As soon as you get to your place, write down all the formulas and any other memory aids you used while studying before starting the exam. That way, you can relax a little because you won’t have to remember the formulas when you get to those questions on the exam—you can simply look at your scratch paper.
