Everyone’s learning style is different, and learning plan is the same. You need to find your own appropriate learning style. For example, some people like to read silently and remember the knowledge points while reading silently. Some people like to read out loud to remember the knowledge points.
Silent reading – It is more suitable for relatively experienced learners, and you can read ten lines at a glance fast.
Reading aloud – For the beginners whose experience is relatively weak, reading aloud method is the most effective. For the unfamiliar or incommensurate content, even the simple content is not easy to be ignored.
As for the PMBOK learning, the content of the PMBOK is big. Knowledge points of the PMBOK is so plentiful that you need to at least read 3 times to 5 times. When you are learning, the content can be divided into five stages, as follows:
The first stage is to get familiar with the framework and theory of the PMBOK, understand the key points, read through the book and ask questions.
In the second stage, you need to read each chapter of the PMBOK carefully, and combine it with the chapter exercises. You need to be able to write the project management process group and knowledge domain table from the memory.
In the third stage, you can continue to read PMBOK intensively to sort out and summarize the knowledge points, find out the reasons for you mistakes, participate in group discussions, and find your weak parts.
In the fourth stage, we can find the corresponding knowledge points in the book and consolidate them in an all-round way by finishing the incorrect questions sorted out by the simulation questions.
In the fifth stage, you should take a skip reading of the PMBOK and sort out the missing knowledge points comprehensively at present.
In the process of learning, I follow the teacher’s handouts, videos and textbooks for systematic and detailed study, understand every knowledge point and lay a solid foundation. The purpose is to clarify every knowledge point and pay attention to details.
To learn PMP, you need to have a general framework and then extend it to each knowledge point. The whole view of project management, the five process groups and the ten knowledge fields should be kept in mind at all times. So the content of each knowledge points can be found in the context, and the connection between the former knowledge and the latter knowledge will be relatively clear. We should be good at summarizing and establishing a system to integrate the contents and methods of various aspects.
After learning each chapter, I will do chapter exercises after class, and then do knowledge exercises. I will use 5 questions a day and chapter tests to detect my shortcomings, analyze my weaknesses, study hard and make up for my shortcomings. After finishing the corresponding questions with correcting the answer, and then I will read the analysis and record them on the incorrect question textbook.
During the period of preparing for an examination, if you learn the teaching material thoroughly and finish enough question, basically it is stable that you will pass the exam.
