You can only pass an examination by effectively answering the questions – it’s not what you know that matters so much as how you interpret that knowledge into answers to a set of questions you’ve never seen before. Conversely, simply studying questions and answers will never provide sufficient knowledge to pass your exam! The role of questions is to sample your knowledge and provide an assessment of your overall understanding.
Managing the overall examination process is an easy way to enhance your score, the trick is to use the time before, during, and after the exam effectively.
Art: Examination Techniques. This paper is focused on PMI’s computer-based examinations; however, the suggestions are generally relevant to all high intensity exams.
Success in the exam requires you to be good at answering questions! But, simply studying questions and answers will never provide sufficient knowledge to pass your exam!

There are a number of certifications in the Australian
market - other places may vary. Our assessment based on
observation of the job market is:
At the project management level choosing between PMP, the
RegPM CPPM and PRINCE2 is more difficult. Most job
applications seem to see any one of the three as being
acceptable - you have done the work and studied project
management. Some organizations have a strong bias to
either AIPM or PMI and because PRINCE2 is focused on the
PRINCE2 methodology, organizations using PRINCE2 have a
preference for PRINCE2 Practitioner.
Apart from the obvious PRINCE2 link, generally PMP seems to be preferred in organizations with an international focus, IT, banks, finance, etc. RegPM in organizations with an Australian engineering focus (but this seems to be a fairly mild preference most of the time). The practical difference between RegPM and PMP is that the PMP credential can be obtained by passing an exam; the RegPM credential requires you to be employed as a project manager, using the 'PMBOK processes' in the real world, to demonstrate competency in their application.
