With the pattern of PMP exam changing effective Jan 2, 2021 – experts view is to get certified before that in the current year 2020. Reasons for that are:

  • New pattern is uncertain. Decisive strategy to clear PMP exam cannot be defined in the initial few months
  • Clearing PMP is going to get tougher with the new pattern
  • PMI is also planning to do several structural changes in the way this entire PMP certification program is designed. That might impact the candidates further in getting PMP certified.
  • PMP Training & Certification costs are going to increase further.

Steps involved in a recommended sequence for the PMP certification process:

  • Earn 35 Professional Development Units (35 hours of training in Project Management)

  • Appear for the mock exams
  • Improve the scores in the mock exams
  • Pay the PMP Exam Fees
  • Take the Date for the Exam
  • Appear for the exam and crack it

Total effort needed for all the above mentioned steps combined to get certified is anywhere ranging between 200 – 300 hours. While considering this range, where will a PMP aspirant fits in will depend on several factors including:

  • Experience on projects
  • Exposure in Project Management
  • Individual’s grasping ability
  • Ability of an individual to show flexibility in learning

Costs involved in getting PMP certified:

Total effort needed to get PMP certified varies anywhere between 100 to 300 hours. It really depends upon an individual. Based on his experience, exposure, grasping ability, commitment etc. We go with a 3x3 formulae. 3 hours every day will need 3 months to crack PMP. But with that said, we had examples where candidate has done it in 18 days and other extremes where candidates have taken about a year.

 

PMP exam will have 200 questions to be answered in 4 hours (240 minutes).PMI a few years back announced 61% as a passing criterion. But later on, they changed and made it tougher to pass PMP. And while doing so, they stopped announcing the passing criteria. Now with our experience, our assumption is that it is somewhere between 70 – 75%. Also, they have started to evaluate based on many other factors too. Eg. Evaluating individual Process Group wise.

So if you are scoring anywhere above 75% in our mock exams consistently, you hold a good chance to clear the PMP exam.
