Your Own Process Groups Practice Guide Chart
If you want, you can create your own process chart but, an easier option is to download the one that I have prepared.
Which is better – your own chart or the one that is readily available?
If you decide to create your own chart, you will need to spend precious time to compile it. You will have to go through each and every page of the Process Groups Practice Guide to scrupulously note down all the ITTO. This is a cumbersome process and is prone to mistakes.
You would not want to waste time and accidentally make mistakes on the way. Time is extremely crucial for the success in PMP exam.
I would suggest you to download the chart that I have prepared. You can neither afford to waste time on mundane things like rehashing things from the Process Groups Practice Guide while preparing for the PMP exam nor make mistakes while creating study material from the scratch.
There is no point in wasting the time to reinvent the wheel. Time is one thing that is never enough for a PMP aspirant.
