Is the PMP exam hard? Hello, I am preparing for the PMP examination, and I heard from a few of my friends that the exam is an in-depth and challenging one. Can anyone share how hard the PMP exam is and help prepare for it?

Thank you

Clearing the PMP exam is not typically considered easy. It requires thorough preparation, a deep understanding of project management principles as outlined in the PMBOK® Guide, and the ability to apply these principles in varied scenarios. However, PMP Certification is also one of the most worthwhile and lucrative.

While the exam isn’t a cakewalk by any means, it is certainly an obtainable certification if you put in the time and effort.

It takes approx 6-8 weeks of time for a working professional to prepare for the exam. Below is the diagrammatic representation of the estimated timeline.

PMP® Exam Syllabus:

  • The syllabus for PMP® certification is based on the PMBOK (Project Management Body Of Knowledge)® Guide. 
  • According to the PMBOK® Guide, the PMP® exam syllabus is built around various process groups and knowledge areas.

I would suggest if you want to gather more on Tips & Tricks to clear the PMP Exam, here you go https://www.edureka.co/blog/pmp-exam-prep/

As you can see from the diagram, the Planning, Executing, and Monitoring phases together cover more than 80% of the syllabus.

Before you apply for the exam, you are advised to take a training course. These training courses are excellent for helping you understand the various parameters and requirements of different types of projects. 

I hope this will be helpful; good luck.
