You are not permitted to use paper for a brain dump, you would have to use the whiteboard built into the exam. The calculator you can use is also built into the exam, you cannot use your own. Please refer to Pearson Vue's website for more detailed info.

Here is the whiteboard link you will use. You can make practice. Of course, it will be implemented in PMP exam application. You will not use via this link.

In the exam software, the calculator and white board (works in the way like the old painter in window XP) are integrated in it. The calculator will close after u move forward to next question, but what you put down in the whiteboard will stay. So somehow you can use it as brain dump.

However, I find that for those who has enough preparation, those materials like equations and process sequences already become part of your knowledge.

Good luck.
