Hello All,

Happy to share, I have passed my PMP certification in first attempt last week with "Above Target" performance rating in all five domains (in center based testing mode).

I purchased PM Prepcast Simulator a month before scheduled exam date for practice and attempted all 8 sample exams in test taking mode in 2 weeks time. I haven't tried taking quiz or learning mode since I preferred not to get myself familiar with simulator exam questions prior taking sample exams.

My exam scores were consistent around 85% average.

Exam 1 - 86%
Exam 2 - 82.5%
Exam 3 - 88%
Exam 4 - 84%
Exam 5 - 82.5%
Exam 6 - 86%
Exam 7 - 83.5%
Exam 8 (ITTO) - 90%

Overall out of 1610 questions in simulator exam pool, I got 1374 questions correct (85.34% correct).

Practice in Prepcast simulator gave me enough confidence to take up real PMP exam especially with time management. In complexity wise, I didn't find much difference between Prepcast Simulator questions and the one I find in real exams (Prepcast is slightly harder in my opinion but not a significant difference). I felt value for every single dollar invested in Prepcast simulator for my PMP exam.
