One of my Army students (Amana) who passed her PMP test on her first try came back to share some of her tips with our recent class.
This was her biggest tip, which the class started calling:
The Amana Rule:
“Put more study-time into the areas where you have less experience on your projects.”
Amana was an excellent student and passed her PMP on her first try with a very good score. But she shared with her colleagues that despite studying all 5 PMBOK Domains about equally, she did much better on 3 of the Domains than she did on the other 2. And those were the 3 where she had the most hands-on experience at-work.
She told our class that it would have helped her do even better on her test if she had studied more on the 2 areas where she had less experience.
The 2 takeaways from “The Amana Rule”
1) Self-analyze about which areas you have less experience in,
2) Compensate by studying those areas more.
DID YOU KNOW:
Statistically, most people who fail the PMP Exam only miss by 4 questions. So The Amana Rule might push you over the top!
Thanks again, Amana, for coming in and sharing your tips with our class!
