I have finished 3 exams in PM Exam Simulator with good result. It is encouraging. However, I have a feeling that the questions aren't as wordy and contain as useless information as I expected (I heard that the real pmp exam questions contain a lot of useless information to distract you). Anyone here who recently took the PMP exam with trying the Exam Simulator before can share their experience on that? thanks!

(PS aiming at taking the exam before year end)

Thank you so much for your feedback Kanchana’s Ashok!!
I'm exactly at the same point as Ka wing Yan, close to 80% in simulator but only 66%. My exam is on Tuesday.
I hope be at your point, Kanchana’s Ashok, in two days:)

Hi, you have to become a PMI member to get access their mock exam for free. Membership is something about 130$ but then the PMP exam is about 150$ cheaper.

Hi, Edgar Javier. Here is the link to the PMP Practice Exam from PMI: www.pmi.org/shop/p-/elearning/pmp%C2%AE-practice-exam/16202
I don't have a direct experience with it, as it was not available when I was studying for the PMP exam, but don't get discouraged if you perform poorer than on the PMPrepCast. I've heard it from many others, who then passed the PMP exam. Keep practicing, and good luck on your PMP exam!

@EO
My understanding is that you don't need to be a member of PMI to get access to the exam. The regular price (which is typically reserved for non-members) is 0$, so I assume you should be able to add it to your cart even without being a member of PMI. For sure, a PMI account is required, but I assume you already have one if you applied for the PMP exam.
