Question Types You Will Be Tested OnThe PM Exam Simulator™ will test you on the following types of exam questions. Please note that the free version may not contain all of these question types. The "real" simulator has them all:
Formula based questions: There are around 49 PMP exam formulas that you must know. These questions test your understanding of the formulas as well as your ability to apply them to exam style questions.
Situational questions: These test your ability to apply theoretical know how to real life project management situations. Often, these questions tend to be very long winded. The idea behind this is that in real life you will be handed both relevant and irrelevant information. Your task is to identify what’s relevant, ignore what doesn’t matter and then act upon the real issues. Be sure to read and accurately identify the actual question being asked of you, so that you can eliminate the useless information. Often, situational questions will offer two choices which are both reasonably correct, so it’s vital that you identify if the question is asking you the BEST choice, or the NEXT choice, or the EXCEPTION, or the ONLY answer.
Knowledge based questions: This type requires you to identify the meaning of the situation based on your understanding of the facts provided. Knowledge based question may also ask you to identify an example chart or graph.
Interpretational questions: These test your ability to deduce a situation or condition from the description of a status or problem. For example: “If your project has an SPI and a CPI both greater than 1, how well is your project performing?” To solve this, you will need to know how SPI and CPI relate to the project’s performance.
Specific technique questions: This question type provide a snap shot of a situation, like a network diagram, and ask you to provide an element that’s inherent in that diagram such as forward pass or backward pass.
PMBOK® Guide knowledge questions: Find our how familiar your are with specific areas of the guide, such as “Which of these processes are not part of the Initiating Process Group?” or “What are the inputs to the Create WBS process?
ITTO Questions: The PMBOK® Guide describes over 40 processes. Each process has Inputs, Tools & Techniques and Outputs. The simulator will test your knowledge of these "ITTOs" in-depth. In fact, the simulator has 1 complete exam (200 questions) that consists only of ITTO type questions.

Portable Devices Not Recommended (Android/iPhone/iPad/Tablet)The goal of The PM Exam Simulator™ is to simulate the real PMP Exam, so that you can practice in an environment that is as close as possible to the actual experience.

We therefore recommend that you use The PM Exam Simulator™ only on your laptop/desktop computer to get used to doing it "the right way".
