Having recently passed the PMP exam, I thought I’d offer a Lessons Learned based on my experience. I passed the PMP certification exam the first time (with Above Target in all domains), but before I was able to sit for the exam, my application was audited and I failed my application audit twice. Based on this experience, I have some tips to pass along that might help you successfully pass your certification exam. I also have some tips on filling out the PMP application based on my failing an audit (twice!) – if you’d like tips on completing your PMP application, read this article too.
