PMP® Exam Tip: Answer at least 1,000 Sample Questions
One of the important aspects of preparing for
your Project Management Professional (PMP)®
Certification is going through a process of answering a
series of sample questions that are purposely meant
to test your readiness for the big day. As you may
already have realized, studying for the exam requires a
lot of work, including taking numerous sample tests to
find out if you can cope with the question format of
the actual exam.
This is why we recommend that you take at least 1,000
PMP® sample questions. This means that you simulate
a complete 4 hours exam to gauge your ability to finish
the actual exam on time. As a general rule of thumb: If
you are able to correctly answer at least 85% or more
of the practice questions on your first try, then you are
ready for the PMP® Certification Exam.
It is important that you take these sample exams as
they prepare you for the rigors of the exam day, and
the type of questions that will be asked. It is even possible that you will encounter questions
similar to the ones on your sample tests during the actual exam.
Remember that Project Management Institute (PMI)® does not release the actual number of
questions that you need to answer correctly in order to pass. They are very vague about it and
you can read up on the exact scoring system in the PMP® Handbook. The best that you can do is
to take a shot at practicing with sample exams. That helps you to get prepared.
