I am in the process of preparing for my PMP exam however, I am a bit undecided whether I should schedule my exam at a testing center or whether I should take it online. Just wanted to get some feedback as to which option you think is better. Looking forward to your responses.

Hi Ramon,

I think it is very subjective, so I am not sure everybody agrees on one option over the other. It very much depends on what makes you feel more comfortable with.
I would recommend to browse through the lessons learned about the online proctored mode for the PMP exam that have been shared in the Lessons Learned section of this forum. However, it is up to you to evaluate them and decide whether you would be able to ensure a workplace meeting the PMI and PearsonVUE requirements if taking the exam online, or you prefer to follow the 'regular' procedure at a testing center.

For example, here I shared my experience with the exam: www.project-management-prepcast.com/kune...nline-proctored-mode

Hope this helps,
