Doing calculations on the online proctored CAPM exam? 4 years 11 months ago #16833

Hi all,

I am scheduled to do my CAPM exam tomorrow and I've just been thinking today about the calculation questions and how those are handled with the online proctored method?
Everything I've read says you can't have your phone, any paper, pens, books, etc. in your work area. When I've been studying, I've needed to use both scrap paper and a calculator to do some of the calculations for SPI and stuff like that.
Does anyone know if they let you have anything to help do these calculations? Online calculator? Notepad application? My math isn't terrible but don't trust myself to do it in my head!

Since this is a "last minute" question I would recommend that you speak to PMI directly: www.pmi.org/about/contact

Use their Live Chat option (on the right) and get your question answered right away by them.

Good luck tomorrow and please let us know how it went!
Until Next Time,
