PMP® certified!!! It certainly feels amazing when one receives the coveted PMP certification from the globally recognized institution and also it feels good to respected as a Project Management Professional (PMP). The onus of acquiring such a coveted certificate can’t be claimed by me alone as there are many involved in the process. Of these, there are some that have helped in clearing my doubts, a few have provided specific topics related literature and many have shared the ifs and buts of studying which eventually has helped me clear my fundamentals and aided in selection of the right answer choices!
I would like to acknowledge the contribution of individuals who were (and also still are) around me through this amazing journey (@10 months) of acquiring PMP® from the PMI, USA.
At first I would like to thank God and my Parents for their never ending support and keeping faith in me.
Secondly, I would like to thank Ms. Minaxi Vaishnav, a freelance trainer. She had conducted a Project Management related in house training which I had attended where she had tossed the PMP term that I heard for the first time It was then that I came to know about such a certification course. Subsequently, she had also been assigned as a trainer for #Prothoughts which I signed up for acquiring classroom education in PMP and to also earned the qualifying 35 PDUs. The classroom training helped me in forming a foundation for getting awareness of the structure of #PMBOK and #PMP Exam.
Many thanks to Ms. Vidhi Raj who was instrumental in helping me know PMP® related stuff, PMP® application process and subsequently added me into the watsapp group #winningPMPlan where individuals from around the globe who are PMP certified and PMP aspirants discuss Project Management related aspect. They post questions and further deliberation/discuss and eventually clear doubts related to application process, exam prep and maintaining PDU’s post exam. Also, I bought a book named Winning Plan for PMP (#WinningPlanforPMP) – Road map to pass the exam, written by herself (Ms. Vidhi Raj) and Mr. Vidyesh Alve which talks about the systematic way of bagging this certificate. Mr. Vidyesh Alve is one of the moderators in watsapp group and posts questions, driving the discussions and eventually clears doubts for aspirants like me.
Last but not the least, credit to my wife for the support from her and hard work from me.
For the future aspirants I would only say that if you really wish to crack the PMP® in one go then join a study group (like the watsapp group #winningPMPlan) and discuss various topics on regular basis as apart from reading this is probably the sure shot result oriented method to crack this exam.
