Several years ago, I took my PMP® exam on 31st December.
It was a 2pm exam slot.
As I was traveling to the test center I was thinking to myself, “well, today is 31st December. If I passed the exam, I’ll have one more reason to celebrate tonight. And if I didn’t…”
The optimist in me said, “If I didn’t pass, I’ll know exactly what my New Year resolution is going to be. AND I’ll have had a head start!”.
Well, either way I would have something to gain.
I came out of the exam hall at 6.10 pm.
I remember the feelings so vividly.
The first feeling was that of relief. As if a heavy load was lifted off my shoulders.
Well, it was close to 3 years since I had initially ‘decided’ to take up PMP®.
So relief it had to be. 🙂
Then the feeling of hope and excitement about things that were in front of me.
A true New Year.
And the celebration that night, was something I’ll remember for a long long time.
As I was recalling this experience over this past weekend, it got me thinking.
“Why don’t I create such an opportunity for my readers, my students?”
The weekend was productively spent in coming up with an approach, a strategy, and a spreadsheet based 11-week tracking plan.
So here’s my challenge to you today –
The average time taken for PMP prep is 6 weeks. I will give you a proven 4-wkstudy plan, a smart and brain-friendly study program, and rock-solid support all the way till you pass the exam. Are you willing to take these and pass your PMP exam before the calendar turns 1st January, 2020?
1st Jan 2020 would be a morning to remember.
It would be like starting the year with the New Year resolution already fulfilled!
If you are up to the challenge, here’s how to go about it.
- Step 1: Click to sign up for PMP Last Mile Prep Program. You can watch the 3 hour free training videos to sample the mind-map based training (35+hrs of video training plus another 16+hrs of training resources).
- Step 2: I’ve added a Module-Zero, just for this challenge. It has the study plan (flexible enough to adjust for your needs) and ways to track the progress. And all the information and instructions to get going. Download it, and let’s begin.
- Step 3: Join the exclusive student support group to get help all the way till you have PMP certificate in your hands (link provided inside module-zero).
It probably won’t get simpler and surer than this.

Marie is one of the students of PMP Last Mile Prep program. She passed her PMP exam recently (wait for her ‘PMP Lessons Learned’ article for some of her cool study tips!).
This is what she had to say about how the ‘Last Mile prep’ course helped her –
I agree that passing PMP® exam is hard.
It is also a fact that the weirdness of this exam isn’t particularly endearing (no official word on how the exam is scored, multiple options that are partially correct, etc).
Preparing is harder, considering that you are pulled in all directions by the demands at work, need to give time to family, for social and personal commitments.
Beginning 2020 the whole thing could get even harder – with appraisal first, and then changes to PMP® exam itself (which is a WHOLE new ball game).
In view of these, I do hope that you will utilize this opportunity to pass your PMP® exam now using the path-of-least-resistance.
Are you up for this challenge?
If you are, I’m with you all the way to make this happen.
