I have done the simulator tests 6 days straight and even though I am passing, the score kept dropping.... test day is Thursday, should I be worried? Any advice before the test? Is the simulator test getting harder? Please advise

Personally, I think I get to a point where I've done too much prep for something and I'm confusing myself. I'd take a break from it. Breathe. Maybe do a little bit more practice, but don't worry or get your stress levels up. Good luck tomorrow!

Hi Philip.

I agree 100% with Elizabeth. Just relax. Do something you enjoy and get fresh and well-rested for your test tomorrow. And please come back here after the exam to allow us to congratulate you. I have a feeling that you are going to pass.

Totally agree with Elizabeth and Eric! Don't push yourself too hard until the very last minute; I'm sure lower scores could be due to stress and anxiety. I'd try to relax and rest for today, so that tomorrow you will feel refreshed and recharged, ready to pass the PMP exam!

Good luck!

Hey I just want to give everyone an update- I PASSED!! Yes I took a day off, the day before the exam. I did, however, watched a few YouTube videos, took notes, wrote down the process chart before the exam. One thing I haven't seen people mentioning is that I also read the PMP Exam Outline a few times before the test as well.

The exam was more difficult in terms of more ambiguous options, I was not feeling good about it at all.... but it turned out that I did better than the PrepCast simulator exam, I was so surprised! I have not received any emails from PMI and PMI Profile still has my exam info, any ideas when will I be expecting the updates?? Thank you guys sooooo much!

Congratulations!

You will be able to check your PMI dashboard in a couple of days (they say 3-5 business days, but mine took less than 12 hours!). There you can also get a complete breakdown on how you did on the exam by rubric area.

Again, Congratulations!
