  PMP Passing Score - Not a Number Game anymore

PMP Passing Score - what is the pass percentage?
PMP Passing Score (Part 1): Is 61% still the PMP passing score? Today I completed two years as a certified PMP. It was on Nov 27, 2007 that I passed my PMP exam. I'm getting a bit nostalgic thinking about the 3 months of gruesome preparation that culminated in the joy that rushed through my body on seeing the magic word "Congratulations" flash on my screen on this very day, two years ago. The exam score report, which I received, clearly indicated the domain-wise percentage score, even though the overall percentage score was not mentioned. Lot of important changes have happened to the PMP exam and the passing score since then.

  PMP Exam Schedule: Secret Key to that Elusive Date with Prometric

PMP Exam Schedule with Prometric PMP Exam Schedule: Getting the preferred PMP exam test slot with Prometric Test Center can be a tricky affair. Recently, a distressed PMP aspirant from Singapore wrote to me saying that she wants to take the PMP exam in near future but cannot find an available slot at the Prometric Test Center. I could fully empathize with her. I had been in the same boat 2 years ago.

Before I move further with the story, let me give you some background. There's only one (yes, only one) Prometric Test center in entire Singapore. Usually the slots are booked 4-5 months in advance. The problem extends beyond just PMP and CAPM exams to all the exams administered by Prometric. The situation is quite desperate.

So, how do you find that elusive exam slot if you really want to take the exam in near future? Well, I have some good news for you. I'm going to share my proprietary (*winks*) technique to help you uncover those "hidden" slots.
