Take any institute listed in pmi website. But check the trainer's profile before joining.
Many of them run courses with part-time trainers who may not have experience. Especially those who conduct weekend classes. Try taking leave and attend regular classes. All the best!!

I forgot to update that I took the PMP exam on December 27th, 2011 and passed!

It was the most excruciating test I've taken so far, reason being that I am just not used to getting bombarded with 200 questions on a PC that pop up one after the other in a time span of 4 hours. .

All exams I've taken thus far were with pen and paper, and mostly subjective, essay-type (I am from Arts background, and the last exam I took was LLB in 1997).

It took me 3 hours 10 minutes to complete, and then review the 30 questions I had marked for later use--those were questions that involved some sort of calculations or were ambivalent). I could complete those in 45 minutes.

When I finally clicked on the submit button, it appeared like it took ages for the scorecard to be displayed, but I heaved a sigh of relief when I found out that I'd passed.

Thanks. Part of the success can be due to the fact I'd worked as a PM in Franklin Templeton a few years back, and had to undergo some internal PM courses. But those were not as tough or as detailed as PMP. Moreover, some chapters like HR and Procurement were pretty easy for me due to my industry experience in SAIL.

My study plan comprised of the following over a span of 55 to 60 days:-
  1. Read a chapter in PMBOK.
  2. Read the same chapter on Rita's
  3. Read the same in the handout given by SABCONS
  4. Attempt all questions in Rita (took a print out to make life easy). The onlline guide is tough to scroll up and down.
  5. Attempt all the questions given by SABCONS.
  6. Memorize the chart in the PMBOK that shows all the process groups and the knowledge areas.
  7. Took leave on Friday and Monday, and revised 1 to 6 above.
  8. Took exam on Tuesday and cleared.
Average time devoted per day was around 2 hours. But in the 5 days before the exam, it was around 8 hours.


Wish you guys all the best.

What I gather is, in order to be eligible to apply, you need to have 5 years of management experience (if you do not have a four year degree, which I don't). And you need to show 7500 hours of project wise experience in the application.

How are you guys managing this? Can I show coding/development experience? I am not into project management at this stage in my organization, but I want to be PMP certified in order to enhance my chances for just that - getting into management.

I know that I can take up PM associate exam, which requires only the classroom training and nothing else, but I want to go for PMP.

As far as I know, most organizations are suppotive in such cases. I know many developers whose experience was questioned by PMI audit . In their cases, the companies they worked for, but current and prior, certified that they were involved in project planning and execution.

It helps to not burn your bridges when you leave a company, and this is one example of quid pro quo.
