Morgan’s Tips To Prepare For The PCM Exam
Share this article:
So you’ve devoured the AMA PCM® Body of Knowledge, and now you’re getting ready for the all-important exam. Keep your cool with Morgan’s handy tips.
Ahead of the exam…
Everyone needs a study plan for revision, so don’t even think about getting started without one. It will help you make sure you cover everything with sufficient time before your exam date comes round.
Break it down
Don’t cram your revision study into long periods – break it down into smaller chunks. Give yourself a break after 45 minutes of intense study and you will feel infinitely better when you return.
Don’t take it easy
The closer you get to the exam, the more you need to focus on the more difficult areas – the ones you find most challenging. Don’t neglect them!
Reach out to others in the same situation as yourself. This is a great time to pool resources and lean on your peers and classmates for support.
The big sleep
Don’t stay up all night or work too hard on the night before your exam – you need to make sure you are well rested and in peak physical condition to put in your best performance.
When it comes to exam time…
Watch the clock
Be careful and use the allotted time wisely. You’ll have three hours in which to answer 150 questions, so make sure you pace yourself as you’re going through the exam.
Get wise to words
Don’t rush too much as you need to make sure that you read each question calmly and carefully. The same goes for the answers: read them thoroughly before making your choice!
Sometimes with multiple choice questions you can feel like there’s more than one possible answer. But when faced with this tough situation, just remember to go with the best one and answer to the best of your ability.
Good luck with your exam!
