Preparing for your exam is stressful, no matter if you are preparing for the Project Management Professional (PMP)®, PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)®, or Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® Exam.

So your exam simulator should make things easy for you.

This means that you have to select a simulator that is right for you. Here are some of the selection criteria that you should consider before making a buy decision:

  • Price
  • Number of questions
  • Access duration
  • Reputation / reviews from other users
  • Questions developed by a team of certified credential holders

  • Developed by a Project Management Institute (PMI)® Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.)
  • Quality of questions

  • Available features
  • Support

  • Online simulator or downloaded/installed software

The last item in the above list -- using an online or offline simulator -- has the most impact on how you can use the simulator. Each has benefits and drawbacks. We believe that the benefits of an online simulator outweigh those of a software installation, which is why we developed The PM Exam Simulator as an online system.

Online Simulator vs Downloaded Software

Generally speaking, a PMP® exam simulator, PMI-ACP® exam simulator or CAPM® exam simulator will come in one of two flavors:

  1. An online simulator that you access via the internet
  2. Downloaded software that you install on your computer

An online simulator offers the following benefits over downloadable software that you have to install:

Criteria Online Simulator Downloaded Software
High-Quality Questions Yes Yes
Updated to the current exam Yes Yes
Properly simulates the exam experience Yes Yes
Use on PC, Tablet or Phone Yes No
No installation required Yes No
Use from any computer (home, work, etc) Yes Yes1
Multi-device statistics Yes No
Free access to try Yes No
Questions added/updated while you use Yes No
Support has access to your reports Yes No
Use offline No Yes

1Only possible if you install the software on any computer you need to use it on

If you live in an area where you have reliable internet access and you plan on using your exam simulator on multiple devices (PC, tablet, phone), then an online simulator is your better choice.
