Passed the exam last Saturday. Thank you Prepcast team!

Here are the key resources that I used:

- PMBOK (Read the first part 1 time)
- PMP Exam Prep by Rita Mulcahy (Read 3 times)
- How to Pass on Your First Attempt by Andy Crowe (Read 1 time)
- PMPwithRay's blog and YT videos
- Arham Faraaz' YT videos
- Edward Designer's blog
- PM by PM's blog

Here are my Prepcast Simulator scores FYR:

- PMP Exam 1 86%
- PMP Exam 2 81%
- PMP Exam 3 78.5%
- PMP Exam 4 78.5%
- PMP Exam 5 87.5%
- PMP Exam 6 84.5%
- PMP Exam 7 75.5%

Other mock exams that I took:

- Simplilearn 75%
- How to Pass 70%
- Oliver Lehmann 68%
- PMI Mock (I took this multiple times until I scored >90%)

PMP Prep Groups that I joined:

- "I want to be a PMP and "PMI-PMP-PREP" groups on Linkedin
- All other PMP prep groups on Facebook

I started my preparation December of last year. Took a hiatus for two months - March-April. I got back to studying latter part of May then took the exam June 6th. I took it online and thankfully, it ran smoothly. No issues encountered. I also received my score breakdown in less than 24 hours.

All the best!

Hi Himanshu Gupta,

I guess you are looking for this: www.pmi.org/landing/india-pmp-practice-exam
I have taken the exam and I got less % correct answers, compared to the PrepCast questions. I also read about other people having the same experience.
So, be prepared and don' get shocked by this fact if it happens also to you.

Good luck!
Irena

Thanks Irena. I have tried this exam and found it to be bit difficult and vague wordings. I will post few questions later but unsure if this is how PMP exam is structured?
I was very happy with prep cast questions, which help me gain thorough understanding of questions and how to correctly evaluate the questions for corect/best answer. However, I found some of the questions in this this PMI exam had inadequate wordings or doesn't make sense. Was that the case with you as well?
Thanks!

Hi,

Absolutely, that was also my impression - vague wording, making it difficult to figure out what is the question actually asking. Some of the questions, on the contrary, are easier than the PrepCast.
I assume that the wording on the real exam will be the same, though I hope it is a wrong assumption.
I have a scheduled exam for next week and I will have the chance to check it. I will share my experience afterwards.

Best,
Irena

Congratulations Michelle!

what do you think about PMI's practice exam? was it worth taking it and repeating it more than once?

I have the time for one last mock exam and I am not sure if I should take PMI's mock exam or another one from Prepcast exams. What do you think?

Thanks

Omar, yes, give it a try! Don't be discouraged if you get a low score. The intent is to familiarize yourself with PMI's verbiage. Good luck!

Hi,

I am searching for the PMI mock test as well, can some one recommend from which site can one obtain it?
I could not trace it on the PMP official site.

Thank you.
Best regards,
Dolon

Hi,

I have attempted PMI sample exam once and scored 72%.Can someone please confirm how will i check which PMBOK area is weak as it is not coming out in sample exam result which shows only percentage.
Do you suggest whether I should attempt PMI sample exam multiple times until I scored above 80% ?

# I suggest that you contact support and ask them for assistance on how to interpret your score based on knowledge areas.

Do you suggest whether I should attempt PMI sample exam multiple times until I scored above 80% ?
# I would strongly advise against doing this as this is not a good use of your time. The score that counts the most is the score you get the very first time you do a test. This is because you only have one shot at the PMP exam. Scores from any other attempts will be based on a memory of the questions you got wrong initially. Better use of your time would be to review the exam questions after you are done to understand why your answers are either wrong or right.
