Recap of Study Group June 2017

The PMINYC study group has been a great experience for our members. Here are some comments from our first cycle participants:

 • Assigning each member as PM was an excellent decision and should continue to be a requirement.

• Content in Dropbox exceeded all expectations. Clearly, a lot of thought and hard work went into assembling materials. It made studying much easier and organized to have that resource.

 • Everyone had something to offer concerning study materials. Dropbox was also an excellent addition to sharing resources and study materials.

 • The PMP materials were an essential part of the studying process. It was also helpful to have other resources (like Rita) and a variety of study apps as well.

 • (1) material available on Dropbox (PPT, exam scorecard, schedule, cheat sheet, etc.) was excellent (2) having the facilitator stay on top of the schedule, send reminder emails of topic to cover, and physically be in the study group helped stay on schedule (3) the study group & structure motivated me to get through the chapters.

• Being able to discuss misunderstood test questions and concepts.

 • Excellent group of people. Everyone with different work experience and different experience with PMP and taking the PMP. All willing to help each other.

 • Reviewing key points/confusing topics and going over confusing/wrong test questions.

 • Working with other professionals to understand PMP gaps

Success stories

"I passed! In no small part thanks to our facilitator and the rest of my study group."

"The study group really helped me stay motivated. I knew I had to prepare for our meeting each week if only so I didn't let the group down. Plus it was fun to meet new people and share project management war stories. Instead of feeling all alone, I was part of a community with a common goal - pass the darn test. Plus it was fun!"
