As part of my PMP preparation, I realized that, one of challenging areas for me was to remember the common ITTOs. I didn’t have problem remembering distinct ITTOs which are very unique to its process. Did you realize that following are very common ITTO?

My preparation guide to clear PMP in first shot. I cleared my PMP certification exam in Nov 2012. It took me a long time to come up with this post, but I nevertheless wanted to post the same for the benefit of others who are planning to attempt for the exam sooner or later.

I had signed up for a course with Knowledgwoods Training which conducts workshops in all major cities. You need to look you for their schedule. There are many more good institutes and you can choose any one which you think provides you with good training material, reference guides and techniques. Although I underwent the training workshop (to earn my PDU's required for eligibility) first and began my studies later, my strong recommendation to others would be to read PMBOK atleast once before you take up a course.

This will help you understand the sessions better and also get all your doubts cleared from the trainer during the sessions. Below is the plan I followed to study for the exam. Study Plan: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 2. 3. 4. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. Rita's Process Chart flashcards. PMP Acronyms flashcards. PMI PMP® Exam Self Study Group | pmp.groupsite.com.
