Is there any way to pause the PMP Exam Simulator or to disable the timer? I cannot find sufficient 4 hour blocks of time to do them each in one hit so when I come back to them they have expired (the exam, not the subscription) and I have to restart.

I realise there is benefit in replicating the 4 hour exam scenario but it is not always possible to do so.

It is 100% intentional that the simulator cannot be paused. We want our students to practice in conditions that are "as close as possible" to the real exam. And this means - no pausing. One reason for using the simulator is to learn to "time yourself" and actually be able to answer all 200 questions in the course of two hours -- in that way it not only helps you learn about the questions types and question styles, but also helps ensure that you know how to "run a 4-hour marathon" of questions.
