This week's featured lessons learned comes to us courtesy of Sachin Vehale.
In this lessons learned Sachin shared with us his experiences and preparations for the PMP exam.
"Throughout my preparations, It’s been an enriching experience for me in terms of professional & personal development. Journey started in June. I spent quality time doing my homework i.e. learning about the PMP certification. I got a hardcopy of PMBOK and was reading few chapters even before I took decision. During this period, I got know about PM Prepcast. First look, I liked it because it was providing me the flexibility of studying anywhere , anytime using my phone.& as I started going through the episodes, I knew I had taken the BEST decision.I applied to PMI in September and once application process was completed, I set up myself little over 3 months’ time and scheduled exam at Year end. I made a high level study plan and my actual studies geared up.
As a full time IT professional could find little time on week days for studies.I managed to squeeze an hour in night on weekdays. On weekends I used to utilize time left after my family commitments and responsibilities but I made sure I’m doing atleast a little progress everyday..."
