Free CPIM Exam Giveaway!

Hey APICS Exam Warehousers!

I wanted to let everyone know about an opportunity for a lucky winner to save some major cash.  My friend over at supplychainmodeler.com is offering a free pass for one APICS CPIM exam of your choice.  Think about what you could do with an extra few hundred dollars instead of paying for your next exam…. I just bought a grill this past weekend which cost about as much as one of these tests.

So there you have it, sign up for the contest here www.supplychainmodeler.com/giveaways/apics-cpim-giveaway/ and if you win, you can buy yourself a new barbecue grill (or whatever else you want/need:)  Good luck!

It’s been a while….

Hey everyone…

I have really let this site fall into terrible decay… Sorry about that.

My original goal was to write about my APICS CPIM test – taking experience as I was studying for and taking the tests. Unfortunately, I couldn’t keep up on this blog as I went and just wanted to get all of the exams passed and done with, so I put all my focus on my goal. Well, I am happy to announce that I am officially APICS CPIM Certified! Yep, I finally got them all done and it felt like a huge weight lifted off my shoulders.

I wrote a post back in November 2011 about passing my third test. After passing that one, I passed my fourth (Execution and Control of Operations) in December 2011. Then I passed the last one (Strategic Management of Resources) in February 2012. That means I finished the last four exams in just over 4 months! It was grueling but worth it in the end.

I recently moved to a different position within my company that is two job grades higher than my previous one and it included a nice pay raise 🙂 Being APICS certified was a huge factor in helping me move into this new position and I’m really glad I stuck with it.

I’ll try harder to keep this blog updated with good information. I plan on putting the rest of my study notes up as well as other posts about the exams in general.

If there are any specific questions your have about the exams please share with us in the comments… I’m sure you’re not the only one with that question.
