Hello all,

Over the last few days, we have received a number of good questions from students who are using The PMP Exam Simulator 2021. So I decided to go ahead and record a quick video with answers. Here it is, please take a look:

And if you have any questions that I didn't answer, please ask them below.

Hi, sorry, new to this world...why is there a separate exam just on ITTO?
Also, with the new format of two 10 minute breaks, can you please clarify when these breaks are scheduled during the 4 hour period?

@ MD

Here are my answers for you:

"why is there a separate exam just on ITTO?" >> This is historical. In the past the ITTOs were a big part of the exam. They are less so now. But every time that we remove this exam, we get dozens (hundreds?) of emails from our students about "where did the ITTO exam go??!!". So we decided to keep it. My recommendation: Ignore this particular exam.

"Also, with the new format of two 10 minute breaks, can you please clarify when these breaks are scheduled during the 4 hour period?" >> We have no official statement from PMI. But one student told us that it's like this: 60 questions - break - 60 questions - break - 60 questions - end.

Will the exam simulator be updated as we learn more about what is on the 2021 exam?

Of course! That is our standard process. Ever since we launched Simulator V1 about a decade ago, we constantly monitor lessons learned and other critical sources to learn about what the real exam is like and use that to continuously improve the questions and offered features.

However, we do not apply "knee-jerk actions". Meaning that implementing changes to the simulator features are done planned and deliberately. So the development of adding the two 10-minute breaks for the PMP Simulator is already in our backlog, and takes time to define, estimate, and then implement and release.

Questions on the other hand are updated as fast as our writers get intel and are able to make the changes.

Itsnanta,

I'm afraid you can no longer switch. I checked your account and I see that you have taken 5 exams in the 2020 simulator. Based on our terms and conditions, you can no longer switch or obtain a refund.

You will have to decide for yourself, if the booster course would help you. Please watch this video here where I talk about what the booster is and does:


Once you saw this, you can determine if you need it or not. It's a very personal decision depending on where you are in your PMP Prep journey.

I was planning to sit for the old PMP exams ending 2020. For which i was liably informed that it was extended for April 2021. To my surprise after the 18th page update no provision for the old exams system is provided for example the simulators are all changed to 2021. Please advise. Could i have been wrong to understand it that way. are we all meant to prepare for the new PMP 2021?

Thank you

Cornelius,

Yesterday, I passed my CAPM certification and I was pleased that I got Above Target in all knowledge areas. I 'planned' extensively making a 'solid study plan' and then followed through with the plan with about 50-60 hours of study. And, the plan and effort worked for me. I used the PMBoK guide, the RMC CAPM Prep Book (with Fast Track exam simulations), and the PMPrepCast Simulator for CAPM exam simulated questions. I took 3 of the PrepCast simulated exams and after passing those, I felt fairly comfortable that I would pass the CAPM certification exam which I did. I will say that I think the PM PrepCast simulator was much closer to and more helpful preparing for the real exam than the RMC Fast Track simulator. However, the RMC CAPM Prep Book was still useful to start to better decipher the PMBoK guide.

With that said, I am preparing to apply and sit for the PMP exam in the next few months. I noticed that the PMP exam content has changed and I am caught in the middle of a transition period where most training providers offer material covering the previous exam's structure may be obsolete. Since I have not taken any PMP prep courses yet, what would you recommend as a good program to complete in order to prepare for this exam…..the 'previous version' PMP Prep Course , along with a Booster Course ?? , etc. Is there a course yet that covers the new PMP exam content (in its entirety) or do I need to do the old prep course, then a booster course. Along with this training, I also would like to take a BOOT camp course just before I take the exam. Can you provide good recommendations for a solid study plan, so I will be well prepared for the PMP exam.

Thank you.

Hello Quang,

I'm sorry to hear that you were unable to find the option to extend your simulator subscription. Typically, a week before your simulator's subscription is expired, an email is sent to you with the extension offer. It is possible that you have either missed the email or it went into your spam folder. Regardless, I have opened a proactive ticket for our support team on your behalf. They will help you with your inquiry.

Thank you again for selecting our products for your preparations.

Best of luck.

During the real exam does the clock stop for the 10 min breaks? Is the count down for the real exam start at 230 min or 250 min?

Hi there,

I too cannot find the option to extend my subscription. I confirm I did not receive any emails asking me whether I wanted to extend the license. I've opened a ticket through your Support system, but wanted to flag this here too.

All,

I have recently purchased the PMP Prep exam simulator. I have been studying the PMBOK guide for quite some time. I am slightly frustrated with the PMP exam simulator in that the vast majority of questions seem to be on Agile which I have not studied. Is the PMP exam now agile based? Note, I have not ordered the Agile prep cast.

Regards

Mike
