For Project Management Professional (PMP)®
Your subscription to The PMP Exam Simulator automatically includes all the premium features explained under Feature Details. These premium features include reports, detailed explanations per each answer choice, ability to use the simulator on your phone/tablet/PC, being able to access the simulator anytime from anywhere, and many more.
The following features are specific to The PMP Exam Simulator:
Yes, you saw that right! Your subscription will give you access to one of the largest sample question pools out there. There are so many that you may never see the same question twice during your studies.
The questions not only cover every formula, Process Group, and Knowledge Area from the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and the Agile Practice Guide, they also cover the required knowledge that PMI draws from other reference sources. The content is so varied that the questions will give you an in-depth understanding of what you can expect on your exam day.
The questions that PMI uses in the "real" PMP exam are developed by a veritable "army" of PMP certified volunteers from around the world. These volunteers develop questions that meet the standards of the official PMP exam, and each volunteer adds their personal "twist". So you get a lot of variation.
That's what makes the PMP exam so hard and unpredictable.
The questions in our simulator are designed and developed in the same way. We hired a worldwide team of a dozen of PMP credential holders who authored thousands of questions. That way, you can be guaranteed to see a lot of variety in the simulator's questions.
The actual PMP exam will require you to answer 180 questions in 3:50 hours (230 minutes). Your simulator has to test you under the same conditions.
That's why we grouped 930 questions into five exams. In this way, you can practice for your real exam under absolutely realistic conditions.
Exam 1-4 are full-length 180-question exams following the current exam content outline (ECO). In these four exams you will see 42% of questions from the People domain, 50% from Process and 8% from Business Environment. Additionally half of the questions are on Agile/Hybrid topics. Exam 5 on the other hand does not follow the ECO. Instead, it consists of 210 ITTO-based questions.
This is just like learning to drive a car. The more you do it, the better your chances of passing.
Our students told us that they prefer first to study the materials and then do a quick test on what they just learned. They don't want to take a full-length PMP exam immediately.
That's why you'll also have a separate quiz pool with over 1,200 questions intended for focused testing. Now you can first study Project Integration Management and then test yourself just on this Knowledge Area.
Even better: These 1,200 questions are totally separate from the questions in the five complete exams, so you'll see totally new questions in each full exam.
Please note, in the quiz pool (unlike in Exams 1-4), the distribution of the questions among the various domains and/or project management approaches does not follow the examination content outline. For example, the number of agile/hybrid questions in the quiz pool is fewer than 50%. A student selects the criteria (for example, a quiz with 20 questions from Procurement Management), and the system randomly pulls the questions based on that criteria. Therefore, it is possible that the quiz will have no agile/hybrid questions whatsoever.
The PMP Exam is constantly evolving. And the PMP Exam Simulator follows along.
First of all, you can be certain that the questions in our simulator meet the current PMI standards, because we review and update the questions to the latest PMP Examination Content Outline -- that's the document that defines all the knowledge you need for the exam.
Furthermore, we also review lessons learned from our students to identify new trends and reflect them by updating the current questions, adding new ones, and removing those that are outdated.
When purchasing your PMP Exam Simulator™ you will also receive the following bonus items absolutely free:
In this 5-part email course we introduce you in detail to the all-important multiple choice test taking strategies for PMI® Exams. We review the types of questions that you must expect and be ready to answer on the real exam, tell you how to develop your own strategy for approaching this multi-hour long exam, and give you the steps necessary as you are getting ready to leave home to take the exam on exam day.
The Exam Score Worksheet allows you to keep track of how many questions you answer correctly in your practice exams. Just record all your first attempts of taking practice exam in here to see how you are doing.
It's a great way of monitoring your progress as you are taking one sample exam after the other and seeing how you improve over time.
It is a PMI® requirement that you receive training in project management before you can apply for your exam. PMI® calls these training hours "Contact Hours". You need 35 Contact Hours for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam, 23 for the Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® exam, and 21 for the PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® exam.
Do you have enough?
This worksheet not only helps you to tally the hours and ensure that you meet the requirements, but it also includes a substantial FAQ section that explains everything you need to know about Contact Hours in easy to understand language.
Wouldn't it be great if you had a question about the exam that you could go and ask a trusted source?
That is what our exam forums are for. All students have access to these forums to discuss and learn from each other.
But even more importantly, we have 12 certified project managers who act as moderators in these forums. So go ahead... ask your question. You can be sure that your fellow students or a certified moderators will help you quickly.
Our weekly Exam Tips Newsletter offers tips, tricks, study approaches, best practices, articles and recommended study materials for both the PMP and CAPM Exam.
If you are looking for a free source of all kinds of additional information about the exam, then this is it!
It is a must have for everyone preparing for their PMI® Exam. (You can unsubscribe at any time).
While we have updated the 2,000+ questions in the simulator to meet the PMI specifications as well as the first two of the above changes, we are still working on implementing the breaks.
At this time simulator users must apply their own time management and take the necessary breaks after 60/120 questions. The simulator does not yet tell you when to take the breaks.

Please note that a passing score in an Exam or Quiz of The PM Exam Simulator™ is no guarantee that you will pass your PMI Exam. Results and statistics obtained in the simulator may help identify a student's weak areas, but they are neither an implicit nor explicit guarantee for exam success.
The PM Exam Simulator™ does not provide any project management training lessons, which means that it does not qualify for Contact Hours.
Contact Hours can only be earned for training received. And because The PM Exam Simulator is "only" a tool to test your ability to take the Project Management Professional (PMP)®, PMI Agile Certified Practitioner (PMI-ACP)® or Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM)® Exam and doesn't provide any training lessons, this means that you cannot earn Contact Hours from it.
Please visit the following websites where you can earn the necessary training and contact hours:
Please note that the questions of The PM Exam Simulator™ cannot be printed or exported. They are intended for online use only.
In this way, students can take advantage of simulator features, such as:
But most importantly, online-only access guarantees you are accessing the most recent question database. This is important because we update our questions and explanations quite regularly (sometimes daily) based on feedback and inputs from our students. And the only way to be sure that you are seeing the most current and valid questions and explanations is by using them online only.
Your initial 90-day access to The PM Exam Simulator does not start immediately. Instead, the simulator "waits" for you to log in and start your first exam/quiz. When you do that, the simulator asks, "Do you want to activate your account?" If you answer "Yes, activate", then your 90-day access begins.
In this way, you can purchase the simulator today, but continue with your exam studies until you are ready to take your first exam without losing any access time.
Please note that the activation of your account is irreversible. Once you say "Yes, activate", then it cannot be undone.
