CAPM [an introduction]

to all of you out there, i just thought i should let you know that i have registered to sit the GMAT test. i will not reveal the date. sorry. me no tell. the next obstacle is now the CAPM (Certified Associate in Project Management). this credential is offered by the PMI (Project Management Institute) and it's a trimmed down version of the PMP (Project Management Professional) offered by the same institute. these credentials are highly regarded in various management arenas internationally, thus the reason why i am jumping onto this bandwagon. enough marketing for the PMI.

in the next couple of months, i shall share with you the ups and downs as i will be preparing for this exam. i have started preparations but they are not 100% in motion. i have drawn inspiration from two or three individuals within my ranks who have either obtained the CAPM credential or are almost there. thanks guys, ya'll rock! i shall keep picking your brains for a couple of months to come.

avenues such as PMStudy, PMCampus and PMHub i have already started exploring. if you know of any other useful resources out there, feel free to inform me. plus, you are also welcome to wish me luck and give support (cash, food, time, kind, all are welcome) for the next few months.


GMAT and other tales

no, it is not getting my ass tormented, although some may argue that it comes pretty close. so me and Phathu started studying for this thing at more or less the same time. he wrote it. i did not. simply put, i was not ready for the test. numerous reasons. i gave myself until the end of April to write it. the end of April is thus upon me. am i ready to write you ask? yes. i have studied enough to be able to write it . the only glitch here is that i have not booked to sit the test. again, numerous reasons. one of these reasons is probably being scared. what if i write it and i am not happy with the score at the end? i could write again yes, but i only want to write it once and once only. i don't want multiple attempts appearing on my record. tales...

but because i am not a quitter, i will brave myself and book for this darn test. i just need a sign, even a faint one, telling me that its okay to go ahead and try it (i hope my ancestors are reading this).

otherwise, second half.
