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:
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.
Generally speaking, a PMP® exam simulator, PMI-ACP® exam simulator or CAPM® exam simulator will come in one of two flavors:
|Criteria||Online Simulator||Downloaded Software|
|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|
|Free access to try||Yes||No|
|Questions added/updated while you use||Yes||No|
|Support has access to your reports||Yes||No|
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.
