Taking Sample Exams Helps You Prepare for the PMI-ACP® Exam
Just as a golfer must learn to “drive” and “putt” before they ever step onto an 18-Hole golf course, before you sit for the PMI-ACP® Exam you must learn the mechanics of taking the exam and what to expect when you arrive at the testing center in terms of the exam questions you’ll be asked. Being able to answer exam sample questions is crucial to your success and the best way for you to prepare for the actual exam questions is to practice with sample questions and taking full 120-Question Simulated PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® Exam. A large number of free PMI-ACP® Exam sample questions are available from a variety of resources on the internet, which is a good start to this phase of your study plan.
Although there are many sources of ‘Free’ sample questions available on the internet, you will eventually want to invest in the purchase of an online PMI-ACP® Exam Simulator in order to access the highest quality sample questions. These will not only test your knowledge of the material in the PMI-ACP® Examination Content Outline using the same style of questions that will be found on the actual exam but will also mimic certain aspects of the actual testing environment, such as allowing you to skip those questions whose answers you don’t know immediately, marking them for later review, and limiting the time you have to complete all 120 questions to three hours, just like on the actual exam.
Some strategies for using exam simulators are to find ones that offer different sets of numbers of questions, for example 40-Question, 80-Question and 120-Question simulated exams. You may want to start with the 40-Question or 80-Question exams to understand the specific areas that you have sufficient knowledge to answer the questions correct, and (more importantly) those areas where you need extra attention as part of your study plan. Your ultimate goal should be to take as many full 120-Question practice exams as you can until you are able to obtain an 85% correct or higher score two to three times in a row on separate practice exams.
You should also make sure that you purchase your Online PMI-ACP® Exam Simulator from a PMI® Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) because these organizations are held to a higher stand by the Project Management Institute. This type of preparation will allow you to evaluate your study progress and prepare you for the format of the real thing.
You will be nervous on exam day, which is only natural. But being familiar with the types and formats of questions that you will encounter when you sit for the actual exam will help reduce your anxiety and better prepare you for PMI-ACP® Exam success. Remember that preparing to pass the PMI-ACP® Exam can be a stressful process, but it does not have to be. So study hard and reduce anxiety by being prepared!
