Cleared PfMP exam today (28th of March 2016). Finally, the dedicated preparation of over 5 months has paid off in my 1st attempt. I would like to thank Prasad Kamath for an outstanding contribution to my credential journey. His PfMP boot camp was not just an exam-oriented preparation course, rather it was an opportunity to garner precious moments from his rich Portfolio Management experience. That boot camp helped me tremendously in achieving this credential with ease, although the exam was definitely not that easy. Prasad’s “PfMP Exam Study Guide” is a “must have” to clear this exam because it contains the deep explanations and detailed insights on each ECO task, which you cannot find in any other resource for PfMP. Prasad has put intensive hard work in designing 7 quizzes that are completely based on SPfM. The cherry on the cake is detailed justification of the right & wrong answers of 170 practice questions, specifically designed by him, considering the practical application of Portfolio Management. Prasad also helped me with my application preparation and conducted several meetings close to my exam to ensure that I am comfortable with my preparation and no other confusion left in my mind.
Passed PfMP in first Attempt - With 'Proficiency' in All - Dec 21, 2015. It gives me immense pleasure to join the elite group of PfMP's across the globe! I have been a silent observer of this group for a while now and I feel its time for me to share my experience with other PfMP aspirants out there... Apart from a thorough knowledge of 'The Standard of Portfolio Management', I would highly recommend all aspirants to read Prasad Kamath's 'PfMP Study Guide'. Its a phenomenal guide written in the most exceptional and easy to understand way. This guide contains a step-by-step breakdown of ECO Tasks that would help you gain some great insights into the concepts that are not so well elaborated in the Standard. The 'Quizzes' & the 'Sample Exam' in Prasad's book not only helps you to understand your knowledge gaps but also sheds light on some important concepts that are required for the exam. Prasad has been a great mentor to me in the past few weeks. He is not only approachable, but he also takes the time to answer all your questions and guide you in the right direction. I would like to thank him once again for all his support!
Passed PfMP exam today 9/23. I am happy to share with the group that I have cleared the PfMP exam today. I spent a lot of time understanding PMI standard for Portfolio Management before drafting my experience summaries. I also used Prasad Kamath’s PfMP Exam Guide as well as his PPM manual both of which I think are exceptional academic material not only for PfMP exam perspective, but in general the best compilation of Portfolio Management material that I came across.I felt that the material to cover and the exam are progressively tougher as we move up the PMP, PgMP and PfMP chain. Best wishes for the future aspirants.
Prasad Kamath was my CBAP boot camp instructor in Bangalore. The CBAP boot camp I attended was a very enjoyable, useful, and instrumental-to-success experience. While I have attended many trainings on different topics, I will likely remember it as the most valuable and for that I've got to give credit to Prasad. Prasad is an all-round instructor who profoundly understands what each trainee is looking for, prioritizes the different objectives, and optimally takes each trainee to the next level. On the personal level, Prasad is an honest and dedicated instructor - we kept in touch after the training and I benefited from his continuous support and feedback. Another excellent aspect that characterizes Prasad is that he is an organized trainer who harnesses different pedagogical techniques to capitalize on the trainees knowledge and ultimately optimize the overall value of the training, for example, the training materials were inclusive and insightful of what one will individually have to spend a long time to spot and create; also, the myriad questions, exams, group exercises, and tips were definitely helpful in checking the trainee’s correct understanding, progress, and intricacies of not only the exam but also real life practical scenarios that are directly beneficial to anybody’s career. In retrospect, I attribute my CBAP success to Prasad and wish it to you too.
There are trainers and then, there is Prasad. The 3 days of intensive CBAP boot camp that Prasad conducted for senior BAs in my org was so effective that I took the exam with just 4 hours of preparation, you better believe it! The deep knowledge that he brings to the table along with an envious amount of energy and passion are a deadly combination for a trainer. He is a living and walking Body of Knowledge (BOK) himself. Thanks for your training.
I have known Prasad for quite some time and the first thing comes to my mind is, he is absolutely a Master in Business Analysis, Requirement Engineering and Project Management. I had the privilege of attending his CPRE-FL Boot Camp. The training materials (containing rapid fire quiz & simulation tests) along with other documents, and practical implementation guidance are of high quality and really helped me to prepare for the exam confidently and pass with a good score. His strong hold over the subject, communication skills, patience to listen and answering queries is really commendable. The one thing I like most about him, is his eagerness to help his students to understand the subject with examples, not just for exam but for practical purposes. I strongly recommend his CPRE-FL Boot Camp and CPRE-FL Exam Prep kit to any professional who is pursuing a career in Business Analysis or Requirement Engineering.
My first interaction with Prasad was when i was writing my PgMP application. I asked for his help which he agreed without any hesitation. He gave me wonderful guidance on my PgMP application because of which my application was approved without any re-takes. Later, Prasad helped me understand SPM topics over the phone, that too without a charge. I decided to take the PgMP boot camp with Prasad in my quest for the PgMP credential. After the boot camp, I was very confident of passing this coveted & difficult exam. Prasad's way of teaching is unique. He does not blindly go by PMI's SPM, but rather explains Program Management concepts practically & from an exam perspective. For key concepts like Benefit, Risk & Stakeholder Management, he makes candidates work on actual program like scenarios to cement the concepts. I would highly recommend Prasad's PgMP Boot Camp to all PgMP aspirants.
