Useful CMP and CGMP Exam Prep Study Strategies
I recently earned the CGMP (Certified Government Meeting Professional) designation and while everything is still fresh, I'd like to share some exam preparation tips that proved helpful. I used the same strategies that were useful when I passed the CMP (Certified Meeting Professional) exam in 2016. The two exams are very different. For the CMP exam, you can choose the self-study route, an in-person study group, or an online study course. The CMP exam is computer-based taken at a Prometric testing site and you learn if you passed immediately. With the CGMP exam, you participate in a 3 day class and take a paper exam on the 4th day. You learn if you passed within a week after the exam.
The following tips are based on the strategies I used when preparing for both exams:
Know your learning style
Some people are visual learners, others learn better by listening. If you're unsure about your learning style, this quiz may help. Once you know your learning style, study accordingly. I’m a visual learner so I used colorful pens and highlighters when taking notes which made recalling information easier.
Focus on weak subjects
Through practice questions and review of topics, you should be able to determine areas where you don’t have a solid grasp. Focus on those, particularly if you’re short on study time. This approach helps you to use your time and energy efficiently.
Promotional products are excellent marketing tools. They can increase brand awareness and keep your brand and message in front of people. Whether you have a small or large budget, there are a wide variety of items available for any occasion. To get the most value from your investment, it’s useful to consider the following as you search for your ideal marketing promotional items:
What is the purpose? Is it a high-end gift? Is it something for a trade show or conference? Be thoughtful about how the item will be used. For example, don’t give sugary candy at a health food conference.
I love planning memorable events... creating colorful art... every shade of blue... imagining the best... everything about the creative process.
