Tips on taking the PMP exam (Part 1)

Tips on taking the PMP exam (taken from "PMP Exam Resource")

The PMP certification examination is a computer-based exam that is offered at PMI locations in the United States, Canada, and in other countries worldwide.

The exam is based on information from the entire project management body of knowledge. The Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge” (PMBOK), which is published by PMI, provides an outline of the topics covered.

Because the exam is computer based, participants can find out how they scored by reading the detailed report on performance that is available when the exam is completed. Questions on the PMP exam are grouped by project management processes. The basic PMP exam is not industry specific. The PMI Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ), which tests your knowledge of a particular industry, can be added to certify your expertise in Information Technology Project Management, Establishing a Project Management Office, and Project Management in the Automotive Industry.

I would recommend also a book by Kim Heldman called PMP Project Management Professional Study Guide (obviously as a complement of the PMBoK). I have also find useful the test at PMSTUDY and this guide with the PMBoK structure that allowed me to test my PMBoK understanding.
