PMP® Exam Simulator Reviews by Actual Customers
Customer Reviews for The PMP® Exam Simulator
This is amazing simulator and really helps to test the knowledge how much someone has understood about various processes of PMP. While user can select a particular process to test the knowledge. However it would be more helpful if the simulator would allow to select one or more processes to test the knowledge. Suppose a user is ready to test the knowledge of Integration and Scope management together, so simulator should allow the user to select both the processes.
Today, I earned my PMP Exam with Above Target Result and indeed PM Exam Simulation help me a lot to understand the PMP Exam more efficiently. I have used many mock exams but find PM Exam Simulation most closest to the real PMP Exam.
My next target would be PMI-ACP
Thanks Cornelius for yours help and support.

I found the questions presented to be both challenging and very helpful in preparation for the exam. The questions the simulator gives you are pretty similar to what you would expect in the exam, and the tool did an excellent job of simulating the whole exam process, sitting for the exam for four hours and be 100% focused on task at hand.
Also I would like to thank the PM PrepCast team for guiding me in the process to be a PMP. Your quick responses for all my issues were timely and very cooperative. I manage to get above target for all areas thanks to you guys. Keep up your good work :)

This is the most realistic testing software I found. It will prepare you for the test. I used another software before purchasing this one, and it did not compare in regards to the level of questions you get with the PM Exam Simulator. Thank you for all your work in developing this tool, it is an asset to anyone who wants to prepare adequately for the PMP.
I purchased the "simulation" exam set ( 9 tests) . I really like all the questions they have in the set so far ( tried 2 tests so far). lots of situational questions. Also the critical Path questions are very different then some other ones I have seen around.
As part of the set, there is an option of using "timed" or "learning" quizes which is very helpful if you don't have time for 200 questions they have in each exam set.
There are explanation for each answer and it is very detailed to help you understand the reason behind each question/answer.
I think this is one of the best set of tests so far I have came across. I highly recommend it.
The Exam Simulator helped me not only pass the PMP exam. It helped help score above target in all domains.

I took a PMP exam in December 8, 2017. I achieved "Above Target" on all five domains. On first try.
Yes, it had required hard work, consistent efforts in studying and lots of practices. Really thanks to the PM Exam Simulator. It was the main program that I used in addition to other free on-line mock test questions.

I thoroughly appreciated the PM Exam Simulator, I had gotten the simulator 2 weeks before I was due to sit the exam and was determined to use it to fill in any gaps I may have in my knowledge. It turned out to be more valuable than I had anticipated with not just helping with gaps in my knowledge but preparing me for the intense 4 hours of mental conditioning that I would need to really get through the exam. As a result I was well prepared and was able to keep my composure. I must also mention that it was well worth it for the price. I had seen other simulators that had been way out of my budget and I wondered if the quality of this one would be just as good for the price. I have no regrets and am proud to report that I am now a PMP.
The simulator was no joke, it had me banging my head against the wall a few times but it was able to also generate results that showed my consistent progress and weak area's, so I was able to strategically study. It should be used with other methods of learning and is a very good example of the actually exam. I will be recommending your product.
Thank you PM Exam Simulator, you came through with great quality in time and on budget. I am a happy customer.
I have to admit I wouldn’t have pass the exam without this simulator, although the simulator is very accurate against the real exam, there is some difference which I can’t exactly point out, the best I can describe it is by saying that the simulator has more coherent better phrased questions, the real exam has this feeling of abstractness to many of its questions and some of them are not very well phrased. Also while doing this simulator in my house I had a very comfortable experience while in the Prometric facility they had a very bright light in above me, a very outdated software for taking the exam, and the noise of other exam takers specially if they are typing is very distracting unless you were noise reduction headphones they provide but they are also distracting in a different way.
In conclusion just be prepared for an entirely different experience for the real thing but if you ace all the tests of this simulator also be prepared to become a PMP!

A million thanks to pm-exam-simulator, if it was not this site I couldn't have achieved an all above target results.
Manama, Kingdom of Bahrain
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.

Questions were quite different compared to the exam...
Jona, Switzerland, Spirit
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
Moscow, Russian Federation, BPC
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
Haifa District, Israel
The PM Exam Simulator is excellent and I would recommend anyone pursuing the CAPM/PMP Exam to purchase this software.
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.
Riyadh , Saudi Arabia
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.
Porto, Portugal, Copo Textil Portugal SA
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 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).

I am happy to notify that, I have passed my PMP , To achieve this Certification I have been studying since June’16.

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!
Los Angeles, US
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.
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.
Omaha, United States, Catch Intelligence
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 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.
