Hello and welcome to a guide to passing the project management issue to Project Management. Professional Certification Exam Episode two
00:11
The Last Step is So Covered. Who? The instructors for the Class Me Victor Pearson.
00:15
What the class is all about.
00:17
The target audience Prerequisites. Supplemental materials needed
00:21
your readiness to take the exam,
00:23
the classroom and objective and went over the class. Outline.
00:28
This episode's going to cover what people fail exams and already,
00:33
why take the PNP or C A P M exam? The pin Bart guide?
00:37
And do I have enough time?
00:39
Okay, let's go.
00:42
Most people fail exams because I didn't properly study for it.
00:46
Don't be one of these people
00:48
not being serious in having a study plan. Also handers people from passing exams.
00:53
Studying the raw material comes from not being serious about passed the exam. And I'm not having a study plan and following it
01:00
not going through good practice exams over over again until you get at least 90% score
01:07
increases the likelihood of failure.
01:10
Also, it's best
01:11
to use sample exams that have random order to both the questions and the answers.
01:17
This keeps you from being in a routine in your practice test taking It also helps keep you from memorizing actors to Pacific
01:23
sample questions, which they doesn't help you learn easy.
01:29
Failing to fully read and understand the question is another reason people fail.
01:33
Make sure that you totally read the question before you answer it.
01:38
Understanding what the question is asking before you answer it is key. Entering the wrong question is a wrong answer and accounts against your score.
01:48
For example,
01:49
the question may give you a scenario, which has nothing or little to do with what it's asking.
01:56
But the answers for the question have both the correct answer.
01:59
What? The question's actually asking an incorrect answers based on the red herring scenario within the question.
02:06
So make sure you read the question properly.
02:08
Another reason people felt is that they leave questions unanswered by either a mistake or because they don't know the answer. Either way and unanswered. PMR question is a wrong answer, and it counts against your score.
02:21
Makes your prior to completing your exam that you have all your questions answered. Even if you have to make a total gas at the answer. Answer all the questions again,
02:31
though the number one reason people fail is not enough. Study.
02:38
Ask yourself. Am I ready?
02:40
Do you really want to pass the exam?
02:44
Are you committed to study and pass in exams?
02:46
Do you understand
02:47
Project Management's
02:50
P. M. My standards and terminology,
02:53
do you understand? And in here to pee on my code of ethics and professional conduct.
03:00
Do you have a study plan that you follow?
03:01
Have you received from P. M my authorization to schedule certification exam?
03:07
Are you able to successfully use what you've studied at work or school?
03:10
If he answers to no to any of these questions, you're probably not ready to take the PNP exam.
03:16
You'll know when you're ready when it all comes together, in your understanding of what PM eyes all about and in your ability to apply what you've learned to everyday life and work life.
03:28
When I realized that I was starting to successfully used the PM, my methods and processes and terminology at work and at home, I started being more comfortable with taking the exam.
03:38
It was a bonus being able to explain Pamela's method, processes and terminology to people I worked with,
03:46
and it helped the projects that I was working on be finished more successfully, then on time. So as you continue your learning, you'll also notice that it all starts clicking in.
03:55
And when it does, you know you're getting ready to take the exam and get it scheduled.
04:01
What will you do to be ready to pass your certification exam
04:05
Holding a P. M. My certification brings countless value to both you and your company, and it also shows everyone your dedication to your profession and your professional development. Pay increases air normal for P m my credential holders because they added value that their company sees from their process. Improvements and standardization is that our
04:27
applied.
04:28
After having the certification
04:30
organizations that employ PM I credentialed workforce, it allows them Torri many rewards of having international organization for standardization, eso standards,
04:41
helping to improve processes, employee retention, the bottom line and so much more.
04:46
Holding a PM I certification can help bring you success and punch financial security.
04:54
The Project management body of knowledge, The Pin Bach is a set of standard terminology and guidelines for project management.
05:01
The body of knowledge. He bobs over time and is presented as a guide to the Project Management
05:08
Body of Knowledge, a book whose sixth edition was released in 2017.
05:14
The Pym Baht guide is a document results resulting from the work overseen by the Project Management Institute,
05:19
which offers the C A, P M and P MP certifications.
05:25
Online version is great If you're a member of P M. I have access to the online version.
05:30
Use its glass tray to five definitions, which many are in the exam.
05:34
Run for the exam, the definitions exactly as they're written because that's how they are in the exam
05:41
on the exam,
05:43
you've got to make sure again that the definition is exactly as it's written
05:47
really carefully.
05:49
Both the P M, P and C A P M exams cover the pin box kite.
05:55
However,
05:56
the pivot guide
05:58
doesn't give you everything you need to know to pass the exam.
06:01
Although the pen bought guide is the primary document that being my certifications are based around, it isn't just the terminology and definitions that the exam is about. In order to pass a p. M my exam, you need to think like P. M. I
06:16
speak like P m. I answer like p m. I do things like P M I and use P m my standards in your everyday workings.
06:27
The exam is about the actual proper application of the processes and procedures described in the pen Bach kind, as well as the terminology and definitions within it.
06:39
The exam eligibility period is the period of time during which you are able to take the test for the certification, and it lasts for only one year. From the day your application was approved by P. M. I.
06:51
You may take the examination up to three times within this one year eligibility period. If you don't pass on your first attempt,
07:00
you again. You are responsible for the fees associated with the re examination.
07:06
I know a number of people
07:09
who, after they went through the exam application face, they put off. You need the exam on their schedule. Thinking that they have a year to set it up
07:16
is a long time.
07:18
Well, many of these people had to go get an extension from P. M I. And believe me, you don't want to go through that extra cost and hassle. It's best to play and study and pass
07:30
the exam the first time well within the allotted time frame that Pam I gives you
07:36
Justus. Soon as you become eligible to take the exam,
07:41
plan out your date for taking it and get it on your schedule.
07:45
Get it on your schedule and study for it. And when you get there,
07:48
take the exam. Pass it
07:51
in many locations. Getting the exam scheduled may take longer than expected.
07:57
Many testing us fill up and not all testing us. Deliver P. M. My exams don't wait too long to schedule
08:03
because you will be unpleasantly surprised to see just how fast one year goes by, especially for you're like one of the people I know who waited toe last month's to schedule
08:15
and then fell the exam.
08:16
If you've not yet applied, for example, we'll talk more about that later.
08:22
You may take the examination up to three times within the one year eligibility period, so plan with that in mind and make your first attempt count.
08:33
This is the end of this episode.
08:35
This episode covered our people fell exams. Am I ready? I take the P and P or C eight PM exam the thin guy.
08:43
And do I have enough time
08:46
in the next episode Recover.
08:48
How should I study? What should I study? And how long should I study?
08:54
If you know of any questions on this class,
08:56
requests for future life lectures were teaching suggestions. Please let me know.
09:01
