For anyone that completed their Certified Associate Project Manager (CAPM) certification. How did you prep for the exam? What resources helped you? What steps did you take to complete it? How was the exam?

I’m planning on getting mine this month. I’m a bit confused after reading the guide/handbook yesterday.

I took a course on Coursera because that's what was within my budget

Yeah it’s so expensive, that’s why I’m asking to see if there are free resources to help me prepare for the exam. The PMBOK is out my budget as well.

If you don’t mind me asking, what course did you take on Coursera? Did this course help you pass the exam? Were you already in the Project Manager role?

I'm just starting prep for my test, and I have no idea where to start. I'm not a book learner, so I get very little from the regular prep manuals. I've watched a vlog or two, but that's it.

Joseph Phillips is one of the more popular ones from what I've seen

I have a CAPM and PMP. My recommendation is to read PMBOK and take as many sample tests as you can. Udemy has a bunch of exams but you can find them all over the web. Be sure to note what you got wrong and why. I learned more from getting questions wrong than right. I remember a few math questions. Make sure you know EVM basics. Good luck!
