PMI-ACP® Exam Simulator Reviews by Actual Customers
Customer Reviews for The PMI-ACP® Exam Simulator
I used the CAPM exam simulator to prepare for my exam. I had completed a PM course in 2016, so I started preparing about 3 months in advance of writing the exam. I could not pick up a copy of Rita Mulcahy's CAPM book, so I was using her PMP book instead, as well as my copy of the PMBOK and my course notes.
The CAPM exam simulator was much more challenging than the actual CAPM exam. I scored in the 60's on the 4 simulated exams, but passed the CAPM in the "above target" category. The first simulated exam was a benchmark to determine what knowledge areas I needed to focus on (in concert with the CAPM exam breakdown from PMI). I took 3 subsequent exams as I studied, and I was dismayed to see my scores went down on exam 2 and exam 3. I realized I was not allowing sufficient time to write the exam, racing through them like it was a video game. I resumed my studies.
As I got closer to my CAPM exam date, I took the fourth exam, pacing myself like I should, and my score was just under 70%. I then switched to using the quiz setting to give myself pop quizzes at the very end of my study.
As a result of the exam simulator, I found the CAPM exam relatively easy. I had gained an understanding of the PMBOK rather than just memorization, which allowed me to ace the exam, and to work through the trickier questions.
I would highly recommend any busy professional who is writing the CAPM mid-career as I am to consider the CAPM exam simulator an essential tool to obtaining the certification. I was averaging an hour per day of study, ramping up to 2 hours on the weekends.

The PM Exam Simulator was an incredibly effective way to help me prepare for the PMP exam. I highly recommend that anyone preparing for the exam use this extraordinary tool. I found it very helpful to do a few 4 hour timed exams, to replicate the actual exam. This is a tough exam, you may feel mentally and physically challenged during this test; the Simulator is a great way to enter the test environment well-prepared. Also, this is a great tool to use for additional studying; I would review the questions that I had trouble with (you can mark them too...even if I chose the correct answer, if I didn't feel strong on that topic, I would go back to the PMBOK or Rita's to study up on that area). Any incorrect responses are clearly marked and the substantive reasoning why helped solidify my PM knowledge.
I was a little nervous walking into the test site on 12/13/2017, but once the exam tutorial started, I became comfortable with the test format since it is VERY similar to the simulator, I regained my confidence, and BAM! I proudly strode out of the test center as a PMP.

The simulator has several major advantages:
1) It gives the actual feeling of the real PMP exam including basic features such as marking questions for further review and crossing out answers that you believe are incorrect;
2) It allows building quizzes with the questions you've answered incorrectly to focus on gaps in your knowledge;
3) It tracks your "first attempt" score that is your primary KPI during preparation;
4) The simulator has close to 1800 questions, more than enough

Hi, I cleared my PMP on first attempt last week. Many thanks for the 10 Exam Simulator. It helped me a lot. I didn't find the difference between the PrepCast Simulator and the real PMP exam. I felt happy that I bought the simulator. Thanks for that.
I used the PM Exam Simulator to practice for my "real exam," and was very happy with the result. I passed my real exam with "above target" overall on my first try. The Exam Simulator is great for testing to see if you're ready to tackle the 4-hour real exam. However, I found it most useful in being able to select smaller banks of questions related to a specific process group or knowledge area. The in-depth explanations for the answers also made for a great way to fill in my knowledge gaps. Highly recommended.
A big thanks to Cornelius and his people from PM Exam Simulator, I finally PASSED my PMP exam on Dec 19, on my second try, That was a tremendous relief....I can definitely assure that the reason I passed was mainly because of using the combination of your exam simulator & the flash cards, since on my first try I didn't use neither of them, so apparently I wasn't studying properly. The ability to see the results on the prep exam by knowledge area and process and the detailed explanation for each questions is a key success to perform well on the REAL exam.
My study time took me 2 months and was as follow:
Reading Rita's book one chapter each day and the PMBOK guide the week after, plus reviewing the flash cards for an hour every day and the PMBOK glossary on another. Apart I took one exam each week on every Tuesday, doing 6 in total.
Got; 76, 82, 81, 82, 81, 78 and booked the REAL one as the seventh "prep exam" for the next Tuesday. The real exam was difficult, but since I had the experience from answering so many of the simulator questions and knowing well all the glossary, it went easier for me this time.
Got 3AT and 2T and overall Above Target!
I definitely recommend the PM Exam Simulator + Flashcards
The PM Exam Simulator is excellent and I would recommend anyone pursuing the CAPM/PMP Exam to purchase this software.
A great tool to be prepared for the tricky questions in the ACP certification exam and to keep you motivated while studying.Do the simulation tests as often you can and check the right and wrong! answers. Good Luck!
I passed my exam on 10th December 2017 (first attempt). I’ve found this simulator very helpful to pass the exam from the first time. Thanks a lot to PM Exam Simulator team.

They work! Hey, study hard and drill with the Agile PrepCast Exam Simulator. The practice exam questions for the PMI-ACP exam were thought provoking and helped me "be agile". Don't hesitate!
I passed my PMP exam with 2.5 months of studies (PMBOK, Rita Mulachy) and taking all the tests from PM Exam Simulator. I have given many exams in my career but nothing to this extent of sitting for 4 hours but practicing taking exams on this exam simulator made it very easy taking an actual exams. I averaged around 68% to 75% in all the practice exams but I passed with flying colors in exam.
Question patterns: 25% to 30% questions in the Exam Simulator were lengthy and I was expecting the same in the real exam but to my surprise I barely got a question or 2 where were lengthy.
All I can say in a nutshell, this is a MUST exam simulator to pass PMP exam.

Last Friday 15-Dec I passed the PMP exam.
I can only say the exam simulator was one of the most valuable study resources I have used and a great contributor for my achievement.
I have completed and learnt from the free exams followed by the premium version.
Strongly advise to everybody preparing for this exam to use this simulator tool.
The environment/functionality is very similar to real exam, where you can get prepared in advance.

I passed PMI-ACP exam in first attempt, with Above Target for all domains except "Problem detection and resolution", which I scored at Target.
Buying PMI-ACP exam simulator was best investment for my PMI-ACP examination preparation!
Your PMI-ACP exam simulator was very beneficial and with 480 exam questions I learned all the concepts, tools & techniques required for the exam.
The difficulty of the exam simulator is quite similar to the real exam.
Thank you! Keep up the good work!

I found this Exam Simulator pretty helpful. Though it was the only source I used apart from reading PMBOK Guide, it was extremely helpful in developing my confidence, enhancing my knowledge and overcoming my weaknesses. Carry on with this good work. Very good source for PMP aspirants to take optimal mock exams.

I am currently studying for my PMP EXAM which is scheduled on 19Feb2018, and PMP EXAM Simulator gives me the confidence to appear for the exam without any doubt, I am really in love with the awesome material.

Excellent tool. Extremely good ratio quality/cost. Far more efficient than traditional questions/answers commercial books.
I passed the CAPM Exam one month ago, and it was not hard. I studied the PMBOK 5th addition and took CAPM Exam Simulator. If you want to pass the exam, you have to know ITTO really well. I got more than half of the questions about ITTO. In the same format that the CAPM Exam Simulator asked. If you come across a definition, you need to know two things. First, knowing the keywords for that definition because the exam will define the terms as it explains in the PMBOK 5th edition book. Second, knowing when/how to use this technique is really important to pass the exam. I pass the exam with above target in all of the area except Project Cost Management, I got target because I ignored EVM and I got two math questions about it.

I recommend you to go through several PM Exam Simulator practice exams before taking the test. PM Exam Simulator is actually wordier than the actual exam, but being prepared for lengthy questions helped me to go through the actual exam questions much easier. Even though I didn't always pass those practice exams, but I PASSED the real PMP exam. I even had a couple of almost identical questions during the real exam.
I got PMP simulator 2 weeks to my PMP examination after using the free version and daily questions from the provider. I answered and reviewed all the explanations in the simulator. By the special grace of GOD I was able to pass my PMP examination in August 2017 at first sitting with Above Target grade. The simulator was very helpful in that it specifically trained and prepared me on how to seat for the real examination and manage my time properly. I was able to understand at what point I needed to take a break for convenience and others, without fidgeting. The simulator's questions may not be exactly the same as the real examination but helps thinking through and picking the right answers without confusion. I will recommend it for everyone.

The PMP Exam Simulator is the best testing tool I have experienced and is a MUST for those that want to pass the PMP Exam. Below are my reasons:
- The questions are tough, many are wordy, and you must read to understand what is really being asked (i.e. may not need to calculate Network Path, just answer where is the project schedule created, as one example). Another example is with PV, where you need to identify which tasks or activities to include.
- Regarding the tracking to review your incorrect answers, you can see which Process Group and Knowledge Area relates to the question and how much much was spent.
- The recorded time taken for each question is good as it indicates whether I spent too much time on this type of question.
- Easy to review completed questions and the reference is provided whether in the PMBOK Guide or outside of the PMBOK Guide, which is great.
- One click on the question answered incorrectly, allows you to go directly to the question and see your incorrect answer and the correct answer, and the hints and explanations provided are are very meaningful.
- The overall testing summaries are very useful.
- Lastly, I can easily see which Process Groups I need work on and where I am Above Target, Target, or Below Target. Using this testing tool, I will pass the PMP on my second attempt (I wish I had this tool earlier).

The exam simulator is a great tool to use to gauge how you are doing with your study plan. I really appreciated the ability to sit down and do a simulated full exam. This simular made it easy to prep myself, see how I was doing, as well as to physically prep for the exam. It is an exhausting exam you definitely need practice to know when and how your brain with tire.
I used the full exams, as well as the short quizzes when time was short. The nice thing about these exams are that if you get something wrong, you will be able to go back and look at why, as well as reference where the answer is located in the PMBOK or other resources. I highly recommend this resource!

PM Exam Simulator helped me to pass the PMP exam successfully. After taking all the mock exams with a score of more than 70%, it means that you are ready for the real exam.
The difficulty of the mock exam is quite similar to the real exam.
These simulated questions were crucial to me passing the PMP. Before you study a PMBOK knowledge area, take a "pre-test" of 20-30 questions. Don't worry, you'll do horrible at first and you'll be able to see what you got wrong. As you study the respective knowledge area, the information that you got wrong on the pre-test will seem to jump out at you and make it easier to retain. Afterwards, take another test associated with the knowledge area you just studied. You will do miraculously better. Also, the difficulty of these questions were similar to the actual exam.

The PM-Prepcast Exam Simulator was the BEST USE OF MY REVIEW TIME. I did not expect to find the same or identical question from the Simulator in the actual exam, so I needed a way to understand the concepts better. For me, the path I chose was spending more time to review the simulator exams questions after each test to be sure that I truly understood the concept. To help me further, during the last days of my exam preparation, I deliberately guessed the answers to ALL the questions in the Input, Tools, Techniques, and Output Exam so I can review ALL the Questions, and it worked perfectly. I was able to understand the concepts, and I am sure that the review contributed immensely to my success in the actual PMP Certification Exam. Thank you very much for being a valuable resource to my success!

Please do purchase this one. This pmp simulator not only boosts your confidence but also is very helpful for taking notes from the answers/explanation provided for all the exams. It was very helpful for me which indeed has a great share in my success in my exam.
All the best to everyone for their PMP exam.
Need I say more? The exam simulator is a fantastic tool. Easy to use and challenging but you will be well prepared for the exam. Do as many practice exams as you can. Go over the questions you get wrong and review the PM PMBOK guide (chapter and page references provided!) and you can't go wrong. Thanks so much for making this wonderful resource available!
On last August 14th, 2017, I passed my PMP exam, Thank you PM Exam Simulator Team!!!It was my second try, but this time I took it seriously and I invested time and resources in preparing myself for the exam day. I purchased the PM Exam Simulator and practiced every day I returned from work and on weekeds for 6 months, also I prepared ITTO flashcards with some slides that I was given at the PMP official training provider and practice reading and understanding the logic behind them. I did it while I was in public transportation to my work place and in every single free time I had. I also read the material I was given at the course. I practice a lot in the PM Exam simulator and I also downloaded the PMP Game in my mobile phone and this game helped me to memorize the ITTOs while playing with them.Every time I ran a test in the PM Exam Simulator I reviewed the wrong answered question against the PMBOK reference included in the simulator, that helped me a lot to go straight to relevant knowledge I needed to improve.I also purchased a simulator from other vendor (Testking) which I tought would be helpful however it was unupdated. It had questions from Version 4 and confused me, since even in the PM Exam Simulator I was getting good scores in the TK simulator I had bad notes, until I discovered it was unupdated, so I stopped using it and focused in the PM Exam Simulator with excellent results.This experience of getting the PMP certification was a big challenge for my Professional development and thanks to PM Exam simulator and hard work I passed the exam, below my scores:Initiation: Moderately ProficientPlanning: Moderately ProficientExecuting: ProficientMonitoring and Controlling: Moderately ProficientClosing: Moderately ProficientI really recommend PM Exam simulator.:)

I had cleared the PMP exam in the first attempt. I read the PMBOK, focusing mainly on the ITTO. After this I had taken the simulation test from PM Exam Simulator. It gave me results and idea where I need to focus.This tool really made my brain think as a PMP professional. If without this, it would not have been possible to clear it in the first attempt. I was lucky I found this learning tool. Thanks.
Highly informative, great practice questions, incredible support from staff - thank you!

The use of PM Exam Simulator has assured that I passed the PMP exam at the first try.
It helps to check whether you have sufficient knowledge of the the PMBOK and understand the type of questions you can expect. But is also assures you are getting used to the pace which is required to answer the questions and the 4 hours test time it takes, in which you have to stay focused and confident.
Take the time to run several tests, its worth the investment.
Used your simulator and did countless practices which led me to pass the CAPM exam on my first try. Very realistic approach to exam questions and situation. Passed August 24, 2017. 14 days preparation.
St John's, Canada
My experience with Simulator was quite good. It helped me to get an overview of exam and it covers the complete PMBOK. It helped me to pass the exam in the first test itself and I would recommend the simulator to anyone preparing for PMP
The simulated exams were just like the real exam. Using the combination of the prep cast study course and the practice exams for less than 30 days, I passed the exam on the first try! I recommend these exams to everyone I know wanting to take the PMP, including PMP groups within my organization. The exam reports, the statistics, all of it are wonderful and definitely worth it!
I passed PMP exam on July 12th.
Just some notes:
PMP Exam questions were harder in terms of complexity than simulator questions. They were also longer than the average of those I got within Exam Simulator. My suggestion is to sit for the exam once the average of simulator "passed" answer is always above 80%
That said, thanks for your support!

I would like to share my earnest feedback for PM Prepcast simulator program. The simulation mock exam helped a lot in understanding the weak areas and working on them. Specially ITTOs – mock test is reality check for understanding of PMBOK standards.
I must say the exam questions were very close to simulator exam in terms of applying the fundamentals with a mix of tricks for checking the correct understanding of concepts. I have attempted 4 full length mock test which has helped me in managing the time. I was consistently able to finish the exam in 3.5 hrs and last 30 mins for review.
In the main exam I completed 200 questions in similar timing and last 30 mins. were for review. Finally I cleared the exam with satisfactory result.

The 12-week PMP Preparation class I took was taught by local PMP’s. One of the instructors recommended we buy additional tests for practicing. She gave us the link she recommended: http://www.pm-exam-simulator.com/pmp-exam-simulator. I bought 9 practice exams which included a specific Inputs/Tools-Techniques/Outputs exam.
During the 12-week period, I scheduled exam time for myself and took the 6 of the 9 exams striving for scores 80 or above. Most of the time I scored in the high 70’s. One of the very beneficial components of the exams were the questions that were not in the PMBOK Guide, nor any of the text books I was studying. The PMP Test does include current events, so that forced me to think outside of just book learning.
The other very beneficial component of purchasing the exams was to practice answering all of the questions within the timeframe given. Initially, I was not able to answer all of the questions in four hours. Through practicing, I learned how to watch the timer and number of questions left in order to complete the test in four hours. While some guides tell you to take breaks during the actual exam, taking practice tests will give you an understanding of your personal timing requirements.

Immediately after I failed my PMP exam, I did an internet search on how to pass the PMP exam. Up came the PM Exam Simulator link as the first choice. I have attempted almost all the exam questions and I must say that the answers to the questions are well prepared such that they help in the student's thorough revision. For every answer selection that is right or wrong for the question, there is an explanation plus references to the PMBOK section for further reading.
I strongly recommend this service to any new student to PMP who wants more practice questions.
I believe an exam simulator is a requirement in the pursuit of a PMP certification.
The PM Prepcast Exam simulator was an excellent resource in my studying routine. I used the practice questions to test my understanding after reviewing each Knowledge Area. I also took 3 full exams which was a bit burdensome, but very well worth the effort. I felt like the questions on the actual PMP exam were very similar to the questions from the simulator. I was a bit nervous and overwhelmed to begin with, but once I got my stride, I started realizing that many of the questions felt similar to the simulator. Two things about the simulator that were most helpful -- the statistics and the post exam explanations to the answers. The statistics helped me concentrate my studying on my weakest areas and I did see improvement toward the end of my studying. It also gave me more confidence as I compared my average grades with the percentage of passing actual PMP exam. The post exam explanations were excellent -- they cited exactly where the information was in the PMBOK for more thorough follow-up.
My only criticism was that with such a large pool of questions, why did I have multiple repeat questions when I took the full exams?

The simulator helped me a lot to succeed in the real exam, the questions of which however seemed to be quite more difficult than the simulator ones.

The PMP Exam Simulator was great to practice on. It has prepared me and helped me passed my exam. I like the fact that I was able to access the exams anywhere as long as there is a wifi access. I strongly recommend this, and it was worth the cost.
When I have joined and reviewed the PM Exam Simulator package for the first time, I was impressed with the well-stated questions and the well-prepared answers, along with crystal clear explanations. You learn how to think as a potential PMP and prepare yourself for the final exam. Surely you can learn through the answers and mostly through your mistakes. Good job Cornelius!
This was a great simulation for the real thing. I think the questions were great and asked about all the topics in the exam. From my own person exam that I took, I felt the simulator asked more math, quality, and motivational questions than the real exam. Perhaps this was done intentionally since I felt those were the questions on the real exam you either know or don't know and really should be easy points to help you pass the exam.
For me the real exam asked a lot more situational questions and some thought needed to be put into which was the right application of the question whether it was an ethics, procedural or a plain guess what the real problem is type of question. Overall, I got a single mostly proficient on the closing section, everything else I was proficient.
I never passed one of your exams yet I passed the PMI-ACP at above target range. When taking your exam I could argue the answers you have on 75% of the questions. That is crazy. On PMI exam I could argue none of the final answers. They were all cut and dry answers.
I learned a ton from you with this exam and my previous PMP exam. Just your practice exams are way too contiversial. Thank you for your assistance with my studies.

I wanted to couple my engineering project skills to the best practices of the PMP program as described in PMBOK. I used the mentored course and then relied heavily on the practice exams. I did 7 of them and was ready for test day; passed it on first attempt . It was the exam simulator that made the difference for me.

It's been a year and a half since I passed the PMP exam. As I reflect back on the entire process of studying for the exam and the different methods used, I am reminded of the impact of the PMP Exam Simulator on my ability to pass the exam.
The PMP Exam Simulator allowed me to identify my weak areas, reinforced my confidence in my knowledge by providing different modes of testing, and prepared me for the full exam with the real exam mode.
Without the simulator, I don't believe I would have been properly prepared for the full exam. Time management is crucial for successfully taking the exam and the simulator is a great tool for learning to manage your time.
Vacaville , United States , State Compensation Insurance Fund
I passed the PMP exam today, proficient for all 5 knowledge areas.
I could not have done this without the PM Exam Simulator. The simulator allows you to take learning quizzes and allows you to review and analyze in which areas your weaknesses lay. I found this feature extremely useful to progressively elaborate my PMBOK knowledge to a point where I could walk into the test center with full confidence. I took the learning quizzes in 50-question chunks and analyzed my results in between.
The questions in the simulator are all of high quality and very representative of the type of questions you'll encounter on the real exam, though maybe a few too many allow you to eliminate all-but one answer, which was not the case on the exam.
In any case, this was definitely money very well-spent.
I used the PMP Exam Simulator and passed the test on my first try. It was a great addition to PM PrepCast online training that I used to get my 35 contact hours. I personally found many of the questions vague with meandering problem statements; however, I soon found out that the PMP exam also had many poorly written problems. Thus I found that I appreciated the simulated exams (I only had time for two) more after I actually took the test.
