Hi,

I used pm-simulator and really like the grid feature where I could jump to a question and even see categorically the marked ones.
Do we get similar grid feature in actual PMP conducted at PearsonVue. I am assuming the answer is yes. Please confirm.

Anantha,

I cleared the exam today :-) will share the exam experience soon.

With regards to availability of grid feature in PMP exam.

Effectively during actual PMP exam, you have an option to :
a) Flag a question
b) Leave the question unanswered

Having said that you cannot access the grid until you are done with all the questions. I could access the grid once i reached 200th question. This was indicated as part of the tutorial.
This is one diff. i would say when you compare pmp with pm-simulator. In PM-Simulator full blown mock test, you have access to grid all the time.

At the end of 200th question, once you are in PMP grid ( actual exam ), there were 4 options:
a) Review ALL questions
b) Review flagged question
c) Review unanswered question
d) END REVIEW ( Do not click this, else you would end up finishing up the exam )

Hope this helps !!

Congrats Neeraj! Can you tell me what kind of a clock does the real exam have - Does it start from 240 minutes and count down minutes like 239 mins... 238 mins... and so on. Or does it start from 4hrs 00mins and then count down like 3h 59mins... 3h 58 mins... and so on.
