Hi Team,

Thanks for your Tips. I purchased the PM exam simulator for the PMP and doing the exams. What I noticed is that I have a problem with the time (e.g I managed onlt 190 out of 200 questions). As a methodology, I try ti to keep my answers to difficult questions up to 60 sec, but still at the end I run out of time. The worst case scenarios are EVA or EMV questions where I have to calculate (and draw)... :-(
Any suggestions that can help me?

I know, practice, practice....

What worked for me when I was practicing was to budget in your head about 1 min 20 seconds per question. Some you can answer in 30 seconds while others will take longer. If you feel 1.5 mins has passed and you have not answered the question, take your best guess and mark it for review. Come back to it at the end. Pace and endurance were what I found to be challenging elements when taking the exam.
