I'm in the process of a career change from I-just-do-what-they-tell-me to Project Management. I recently learned about the CAPM exam and am hoping to take it within the next year. My biggest concern with this, however, is about tracking hours. I need 1500 project hours in order to qualify for the exam.
So what I'm wondering is:
*Does anybody track their hours?
*How do you do it?
*What counts as a "project hour"? (Is it only team projects, or can you count personal projects that you do on your own?)
Any and all advice on getting started on a career in project management would be more than appreciated right now.
