Hi,

I have given almost 8 simulation on PM PrepCast. My average is now between 75 - 80 %. I took Rita's PM fast track exam and found it very difficult. I scored less than 70%.should I be worried because I found PM Precast simulation easier than Rita's.

Thanks,
Rakesh

Hi Jeffery,

I posted this couple of days before my actual exam. Keep focused and work on your weak knowledge areas. I passed my exam earlier this week. All the best!

A warning before I make my reply - I took the exam in 2011 and did not use either simulator.

However, I did use the Rita book and found that many of the practice questions were often more difficult than the ones on the exam. Also - the practice test that came the PMP Prep Cast seem to mirror the actual exam more closely. Don't get too discouraged with either simulator, but continue to focus your study on the areas where you miss the most questions.

Jeffrey, hope that helps as you continue to prepare!

Congratulations on passing the exam Rakesh!

Rakesh,

Did you feel the actually test questions were more inline with Rita's or pm exam simulator? I am trying to determine which simulator to focus more of my time on. Thank you.

Hi Jeffrey,

I feel Rita is more tough than exam. Too many wordy questions. In Actual exam I did not get too many wordy questions.

In PM simulator, there are good mix of questions. I feel it is more close to exam.

However whether it is Rita's or PM simulator, please work on your weak subject.

Risk, Procurement and Time management were my weak areas. Preparation for my weak areas really paid off.

Good Luck.
