## Reply: We're increasing the PMP Exam Time in Simulator from 230 to 250 mins

 Name E-mail Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site. Subject Message [quote="Joao Ferreira" post=27491]So I am assuming that on the real exam the clock starts at 250 and never stops. Once we finish replying to the first set of 60 questions, it will advise us to have a 10min break but the clock keeps going down. If we assign a 75 min period to reply to 60 questions (average 1min and 25sec per question) and stick to that pace, we should reach the first break when the clock marks 175. We then stop for 10 minutes and resume the exam when the clock shows 165. Maintaining the pace, we should finish the second set of 60 questions when the clock marks 90. We then pause for 10 min again and resume the exam for the last set of 60 questions when the clock shows 80. Given that we cannot have any notes, we should memorize that we need to reach the end of the first set of 60 questions at 175 and the second and 90. Is this correct?[/quote]

How to stop the exam to take 10 min break after 60 questions? Click "END EXAM" or Close the browser? It is not clear from above instructions.

Since this is a practice platform, I hope you can add a pause button/feature to the Exam simulator, in case we'd like to solve it and we got busy for any reason we don't lose all the data.

Hello,
Your explanation is somehow correct, but I think the real PMP exam starts at 230. When the question 60 is answered (it is supposed to take 75 min exactly), the time is stopped at 155 min. whether you take advantage of 10 min or not, when you start the exam again the monitor show you the question 61 and the total remaining time is 155 min.
Again, when the question 120 is answered (it is supposed to take 75 min exactly), the time is stopped at 80 min, in 10 min, the exam starts in question 121 and the total remaining time is 80 min.

Is taking the break time bound? We are here talking about taking break after every 60 questions. What is the ideal time that one should spend on each batch of 60 questions.

I took all the breaks allocated and still completed the exam with still 28 minutes left. It all depends on how well one has prepared for the exam and I did not even mark any questions for reviews.

Cheers,

Hello,
I have just gotten access to my free 7 day trial but when I click on the PMP 1 Test it shows me only 23 questions? How do I access the full length exam?
