Take PMP® Sample Exams to Help You Prepare for the PMP® Exam

answeringOne of the most important activities for your PMP Exam Prep is to take sample PMP Exams (some call them “mock exams”). Be sure that you do this only after reading the PMBOK® Guide at least once. Also, remember that failing sample PMP exam quizzes does not mean you will fail the PMP exam. Online sample exams should be used as a progress indicator in your preparation, as a means for you to learn about question styles and to teach you how to pace yourself in answering 180 questions.

Many students have told me that they practiced answering their sample exams repeatedly until they were satisfied with the results. But that approach is completely wrong! Here is why: when you take the same sample exam, again and again, you will start to remember the correct answers. You will remember that you answered B in your last attempt but that the correct answer is actually C. Memorizing means your result will improve every time you repeat the same sample exam.

But on the PMP Exam, you only have one chance!

So my recommendation is this: Sign up for an online PMP Exam simulator. This simulator will cost you some additional money. Still, the two major benefits are (1) that simulators offer many questions & quizzes that you can take without repetition, and (2) they allow you to test yourself in an environment that closely resembles the actual PMP Exam.

Therefore, go beyond searching for free PMP Exam questions on the internet and use the professional tools that are available to you.
