Project Intro and Background
In Feb 2016, I’ve got an opportunity to work on an interesting project – an Agenda page for Salesforce’s World Tour Melbourne. The marketers would like the page to represent a “Perfect Day” for each of the 6 streams – “Sales”, “Marketing”, “Service” etc., and the functionality for the users to click each of the breakout sessions to read more about that session. Instead of creating a single page of each of the Perfect Days, our team decided to leverage the current “Agenda” page and add a “Filter” function to it, and I’ll be coding the page so that we have a beautiful and user-friendly web experience for the visitors to view that perfect day on a single page.

My responsibilities and requirements of this project were:
- HTML/CSS RWD (Responsive Web Design) coding
- jQuery for filtering and lightbox functionalities
- jQuery for passing the parameters
- Implement the solution to Open CMS platform
It took me about two weeks time to prepare for the PMP test after my 5-day course with NTUC NextU, although I understand that the average preparation time for PMP tests is 3 months. I’m not going to lie that I was once quite overwhelmed by the criteria to fulfil to sign up for PMP exams, the difficulty of PMP exams, and the low passing rate. Therefore, I had always been thinking that once I passed, I’m going to share my own experiences, tips and learning methods back to the community. So here it is – a complete guide to passing the PMP exam and getting the cert, including: Recommended PMP Course in Singapore; How to register for the PMP exam (what to prepare and what to expect); How to self-study and prepare for the actual PMP exam; And lastly, how is it like to take the actual exam in Singapore.
