PMP Study Group - East Bay @ Arbor Cafe - Aiming for May/June Exam Date

Greetings! There will be an in-person study session at Arbor Cafe on Telegraph Ave in Oakland on Sunday April 21st from 10:30-12:30PM. Please feel free to arrive earlier or leave later, but try to be there for the solid two hour main study session.

I've been hearing that there are people who are familiarizing themselves with the PMBOK v.4 in anticipation of a rapidly approaching exam date prior the rollout of the PMBOK v.5. exam. This is the in-person study group for you! The idea of this meetup is for you to get some good study time in, as well as meet potential study partners/form a study group. Please bring your study resources.

There will also be people attending that are mid-way or in the final stretch of studying. We can incorporate some question drills and braindump preparation into this study session in support of your efforts.

Best Practices for PMP Exam Study Groups:

-commitment is key! study group members must be very committed to their study group team, and the process of studying for the exam. Set goals and meet them!

-try to meet at least twice a week if not three times a week. the closer to your exam the more important this is.

-one very effective method of learning is for each study group member to be responsible for learning a chapter from the PMBOK and then teaching it to the rest of the study group. The act of explaining the material and answering questions helps to solidify your own understanding.

-drill on exam questions until you are consistently scoring high; build up your accuracy buffer!

Good luck studying for your exam! And let everyone know how you did WHEN you pass it!

    Our Study Group is only 1/4 of the way through Mulcahy's book. Would like to connect with the local study group. See you on Sunday

    Life is hectic for me. Tuesday & Friday evenings are best for me. I can go to the East Bay but SF is best. But do what you need to do and I'll come if I can.

    Not free Monday nights. Otherwise I'll make time once a week.

    On a weekend in the East Bay sounds great. Perhaps Sundays at 9 am. Thanks for organizing this for us!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
