The number and type of questions in the simulator is dependent on which exam you are preparing for. Here is an overview:
|Criteria||PMP® Simulator||PMI-ACP® Simulator||CAPM® Simulator|
|Number of Questions||1,600+||480||650|
|Number of Exams||8||4||5|
|PMBOK® Guide knowledge questions||Yes||No||Yes|
The simulator clarifies each question in detail because in order to understand the correct answer it is often not enough to simply know that "B is correct". This is achieved by providing a detailed explanation for each question. On average this explanation is 61 words in length. The longest one you'll find is 698 words long!
The answer commentary is highly valued by our students because it helps you understand the concepts and thinking behind each question. It allows you to quickly understand why you may have chosen the wrong answer and learn from it.
The simulator even include per answer choice explanations for many of the questions. This means that there is not only a general explanation for the question as a whole, but then you also get a short explanation for each of the four answer choices (A, B, C and D). This allows you to see why a particular answer is correct or incorrect.
Per answer choice explanations are not provided for questions where the answers are 'black and white". For example you will not find them for calculations, definitions and ITTO-based questions. Here answers are either correct or incorrect without a doubt.
Each question also includes a relevant reference. For PMP and CAPM this reference often points you to the PMBOK® Guide, and for PMI-ACP it points you to one of the books that PMI® includes as part of the exam "Reference Materials". Having a reference with page number allows you to read up on a subject you want to study in more depth.
The question is repeated at the top and the correct answer is highlighted. The gray box below includes a section for "Explanation" and "Reference".
We first see a general explanation of the concept that underlies the question, followed by the per answer choice explanation where you learn exactly why a particular answer choice (A, B, C and D) is correct or incorrect.
Finally the reference indicates where you can read up on the topic.
