Hi,

I need an advice asap, I have studied Rita's 9th Edition & PM Bock, Have taken 5 PrepCast full 200 Question mock tests with scores as 66.5%, 70.5%, 85.5%, 78% & 74% over a period of 20 days.

How do you think my readiness for the main exam based on the scores, please comment & advise.

Regards,

Abhinav

Hi,

Don't rely on just one source of mock tests. Did you also take Rita's tests and how did you do on those?

Your scores are good but the 66.5 might require some more thinking on why this score is lower than the others as it might point you to areas that you need to study further

hi Patrick,

thanks for the response.

I have tried Rita questions after each chapter, where my score for above 75%, also the score of 66.5% in prepcast is for the very first test, post which I have studied pmbok 2nd time & now I'm giving it a third read, planning to Oliver lehmann 200 question mock test tomorrow, what do you feel should be s good score for Oliver lehmann, subsequently 2 more mock tests from. prepcast in following days. what should I consider a target score for the these tests to go. for final PMP exam.

Regards,

Abhinav

Hi Abhinav,

Although there is no direct correlation between the mock exam scores and actual PMP exam results, scoring 80% and above for any Mock Exam will be good. Do PrepCast exam simulator a few times,
and push your result to 80%. Most important thing, read all the explanation given for each and every question. This will be a great help.

Good Luck for your Exam

Regards

My Simulator scores are where yours are and I’m taking the exam in two days. Probably not a lot of improvement to be made tomorrow. So I think you’re in good shape, because that means I am too!

But it’s a good tip to diversify a bit. I’m going to do some of the practice questions in the Rita book.

I would definitely shoot for 80% consistently. Study what you miss afterwards. Do not take the same exam over because that will give you a false sense of confidence.
