Passing the PMP Exam on your First Attempt:

Many experienced Project Managers fail to pass the PMP Exam because of one simple mistake "Failing to think the PMI Way". Yes, you read it right. You need to think the PMI Way in order to pass the exam.

You may be an experienced project manager with years of hands-on experience handling teams and projects but, how we react to certain situations in real life may be different than what PMI Advocates. So, if a questions asks you, how you would react to a particular situation, without thinking any further say "The PMI Way, The Way PMBOK Guides Us" because, as per PMI that is the right answer and you need to select it in order to pass the exam.

The following series of chapters will help you fine-tune your thinking to the PMI Way and help you crack those difficult questions in the exam.

1. General PMI Themes
2. Project Framework
3. Project Initiation 
4. Project Planning
5. Project Executing
6. Project Monitoring & Controlling
7. Project Closing
8. Ethics & Professional Responsibility

Hope you find it useful. Best of Luck!!!
