There are many Individuals and Exam Center’s offering 99 or 100% PMP® Exam success guarantee through their PMP boot camps, Which are normally of four or five days.
Now the question arises in four or five days can they deliver all the PMBOK® guide material word by word, The hidden knowledge in this guide, Can they extract the juice from this guide and what they are claiming is really a guarantee for you to pass this exam in one go with just a few days training. Do they really deliver the in’s and out’s of the PMP exam.
I agree and disagree !!!
The PMP boot camps are good, I am not against it and the PMP® Exam is not so difficult that you will spend months of training or a Phd degree for it in order to pass it. All you need definitely is a boot camp for a few days in order to familiarize your self with it.
But the claim as I mentioned previously of 100% passing after attending the PMP boot camp is an exaggeration. Honestly, I don’t believe and no one can convince me of a 100% success in four or five days through there boot camps.
It’s you who are going to appear in the exam, It’s you who will come out of the exam center with either a PMP® extension with your name or burn the first out of three chances to name yourself a PMP®. So to maximize your chances and backing there claims whether they are really 100% true and guarantee or not, If you follow these tips, I hope you can make there claim turn into a reality.
Tips before attending PMP boot camp !!
1: Read PMBOK® guide a couple of times.
2: Read a reputable study guide.
3: Try to get familiarize with the PMBOK® guide.
4: Write down all the Jargon’s and topics that you don’t understand.
5: Get the big picture of the PMP® exam.
6: Don’t go blank to attend the boot camp.
This is for sure when you start reading for yourself, you won’t understand a single word and this is normal with everyone. The point I am making in here that you should be at least familiarize with the PMBOK and PMP Exam before attending the boot camp as it will definitely increase your success chances. When you go to the boot camp you will already be equip with some knowledge and you can maximize it by noting point 4.
