I plan to purchase the Exam Simulator software offered by PM PrepCast separately since I miss the chance to purchase the bundle during a special offer back in June 2015. While I hope the special offer will come back soon, I have explored the free 3 days trial to explore the features. I like the realistic interface of the simulator as a real exam. However, I want to know if I can get more test questions offered based on each chapter as I am studying through the PMBOK guide. Yes I can purchase external study books/guides to accommodate this. But I don't want to diversify my study materials too much due to time constraints (one of the 3 golden triangle in PM). At the moment I am using the self assessment questions provided by the tutorial program to gauge my progress.
One of the features I found handy when I was trying to get a reality check during my studies was the "Quiz" option - it basically allows you to create a targeted mini-exam where you get to determine the topic (or "random"), the length, and whether the quiz is timed or untimed. I believe it draws questions from the same pool, so you won't necessarily get unique questions each time, but if you want to drill a specific knowledge area or domain it will let you do that. (Just keep in mind that if you drill each knowledge area several times, you will be getting repeat questions when you take the full practice exams.)
