CAPM® Exam Prep, Fourth Edition
- Product Review (submitted on June 25, 2019):
This book, along with your test question database and other materials let me to a sky high score on the CAPM examination with everything above target. The big plus of this book is that it just doesn't recite ITTO's like an automaton, but provides analysis and cross referencing using to other process areas using the ITTOs that is needed to properly prepare for the exam. Nevertheless, I did not use this book in a vacuum. I started with Joseph Phillips course, book and materials, then used Ricardo Vargas' YouTube video on process flow, and only then did I use this book and its questions, Rita's test question database according to Rita's instructions, and on the day before the exam I referred to the CAPM handout from PMI describing topics that are tested on to get this score (this caused me to pick up several more questions). I also scheduled the exam on the same day I took the exam so that I could get a good night's sleep. That part was very difficult to do as you have to call in to PMI, and be on the phone for about one hour to do this. The CAPM has lots of questions that involve ITTO's, which Rita's materials are helpful. You will not ever get to the state where you can get every question correctly with confidence, there is a feeling of risk going in to take the test. It is a bit of a struggle, and as I said, I felt I got about 75% correctly, found many (about half) of the questions difficult and was not sure I got the correct answer, but nevertheless broke away from the curve.
I never used Rita's shuffle game at the end of each chapter, but after taking the exam, I think that those shuffle games are appropriate and prudent. In my case, I studied the material over and over again and maybe took too long studying to get this result.
