I completed my PMP exam successfully yesterday. You correctly mentioned in one discussion in your blog – Practice Makes Perfect (acronym is ‘PMP’!). Here’s why.
My PMP preparation
In my preparation phase I went through nearly 15 full length mock tests and more than 5000 questions before appearing in the final exam.
I mainly followed PMP Exam Prep, Eight Edition by Rita Mulcahy. But have done some chapter specific Q&A from some other books like Head First PMP, Velociteach – The PMP Exam How to Pass on Your First Try.
For practice I used PM FasTrack simulator published by RMC and real exam questions were more aligned with the type of questions available here.
I have gone through Oliver Lehmann‘s 75 and 175 paper and android simulator also for practice. Oliver Lehmann’s website mentions link of lot of free practice tests which one can follow.

Last 2 weeks before the exam
During my study I prepared my own notes which I read several times in last two weeks. Also after completing any test what errors or knowledge gap I identified, kept a track of that. Questions in final exam were mostly situational and I got not more that 4 to 5 questions related to ITTO.
PMP exam preparation was a very tough journey and I got the full support from my family during this time. I also appreciate your effort helping people to achieve professional milestones. I hope your readers will find my PMP free questions list useful.
