I'm currently in my final study week towards taking the PMP exam (scheduled 6/23) and I came across a few mock questions regarding PMI's practice standard for WBS.
I looked into this and found that PMI actually publishes a whole range of Practice Standards.
In how much detail should I expect questions regarding these standards on the exam ?

Tom, I don't recall any study prep that demanded attention to the actual Practice Standard. I downloaded the booklet and probably glanced at it or sought a clarification perhaps on my understanding of the WBS, but overall, it did not play a role in my studying four years ago. Since then, I have seen many study road maps and none of them include the Practice Standard, and I would recommend you use it as a reference, but continue the prep with your other material. If you're averaging 80% by now, you should be ready.
Yours Respectfully
