Get sample exams with answers. Study the answers for what you got wrong. When you can get 85-90 on the practice tests go sit for the exam. Took me ~2 weeks to get to that point and passed the exam with some room to spare

^^ any resource to buy the sample exams and practice tests?

Reiterating the above; Prepcast Simulator and the official PMI PMP practice exam helped me more than any other resource. Obviously, reading the answers and mapping it back to a prior project made it that much more easer.

When you score at least 70 on a practice exam without having seen the questions you should be ready (prepcast). The pmi practice exam is tough but 60 and above is fine.

I was laid off from a resource management role, working with employees approaching or on the bench, working with managers to staff projects, and support functions like report creation, scheduling, etc. Roles like this are few and many large consulting firms have frozen internal hiring. Do you think it would be beneficial to get a SHRM cert? Would that help get a "talent related" HR role? Worth the money? I have a background in recruitment as well.
