I am taking the PMP test online on August 1 and hoping to hear about someone's experience who has also opted to do it this way. Going to testing center is not an option for me right now and want to make sure there aren't any pitfalls and know what to expect as far as what can be in the room (piece of paper, pen snacks?) .

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jordan,

pen or paper are not allowed during the exam - however, a built-in whiteboard will be available during the exam. Eating is also prohibited - unless during the built-in break of 10 minutes. I'd recommend you to take a look at the Pearson VUE system requirements ( home.pearsonvue.com/pmi/onvue ), to check all the restrictions in place.

For additional details on feedbacks and experiences from PMP candidates, I suggest you to browse through the forum using the search engine.
Here is what I shared about my experience on the online proctored exam: https://www.project-management-prepcast.com/kunena/pmp-exam-discussion/9072-pmp-online-proctored-exam?start=50#20864
In the same discussion, you will also find some other posts that I found useful before taking the exam.

Additional info are often available in many posts in this forum as well.

Hope this helps. Good luck on your exam!

How do you upload your photo do them, do you do it on your phone via a link they send you, or do you do it via your computer?
