Hi Veeman

I would suggest enrolling on a course with a high quality training provider. You need 35 hours training to qualify for the exam. It's always good to ask which training providers people that have passed the exam recommend.

I’d also suggest reading Rita Mulcahy's ‘PMP Exam Prep'. It’s an easy read, well organized and with plenty of useful hints and tips for the exam. The book is written in an engaging style and is far easier to read than the PMBOK Guide, which is a bit heavy going.

Finally, take a couple of mock exams. Make the conditions as close as possible to those you will experience on the day. Mock exam software can be found to help with this. Here is a Self Assessment Test, can’t vouch for its quality, but it has good feedback.

Hope this helps.

Duncan
