In preparation for taking my exam I went through the following steps

1) Registered to take the exam ( I gave myself 6 months to get prepared)

2) Attended a PMP exam preparation course at a local PMI chapter - Ottawa Valley chapter. (12 weeks)

3) Purchased a PMP exam preparation audio CD from RMC Project Management Inc. and listened to it daily for a month just prior to exam

4) Purchased a series of practice tests from PM Study Inc. I bought the 90 day package which I started as soon as I completed the PMP exam prep course which was 12 weeks
