Here are my experience and recommendations for passing the PMP Exam

Week 1-4
Read Head First PMP, get the basic knowledge, focusing on understanding, not memorizing.
Do the all chapter questions (~300 Questions), and make sure you know how to do all the calculations. (There were around 10 questions about CPM and the calculation questions were quite easy in the Exam.)

Week 5-7
Read Rita PMP Prep Book, know what is PMI-ism, go through the topics about Risk, Procument, Integration, as they are the most difficult knowledge areas in PMP Exam, you cannot relies on First Head text book for those areas.
Do all the chapter questions (~300 questions). Set target as 70%.

Week 8-11
I used PMP FastTrack for practice; randomly do 20-30 questions a day. Set target as 70%.
Identify your weakness by the quizzes results; Try to understand why you get the wrong answers by the given explanation or go through Rita’s PMP Prep Book again.


Other recommendations:
PM Prepcast is useful, as you can listen or watch those episode using your Smartphone or tablet when you are outside home.


* Play Rita Game Online, it can help you to see the whole big picture of all the PM Processes. Try to get 90%+ correct.

*  Distinguish the most confused concepts, below blog provide very great explanation:

*  Rita’s Book is very good, but I did not read all the chapters, I did not read PMBOK too. Actually you are not required to read all the reference or resource in order to pass the Exam. You can pass it as long as you are able to get 70% correct in your quizzes or practice. So my last recommedation is do the practice questions as early as possible! Then you will not waste your time on the topics that you already done well.
