PMI: Project Management Professional (PMP)


Who Should Get the PMP Certification?

The Project Management Professional (PMP) certification from the Project Management Institute is an ideal credential for:

  • Professionals working in the project management field who want to advance their careers into management.
  • New managers want to get familiar with foundational project management concepts that will enhance their management skills and increase their professional value.
  • Current project managers who have not yet taken the certification exam to earn the credential but want to.
  • What is the PMP Certification Practice Exam?

    The Project Management Professional practice test is a hands-on tool that allows you to learn what to expect on the official PMP certification exam. Even individuals who currently work in project management should still study, practice, and prepare for the exam. Therefore, we highly recommend that PMP candidates use our practice test to make sure they are ready to take the official exam. By making the investment to take the exam, you will be fully prepared to earn your credential.

    PMP Exam Details

    It’s important to know what to expect on the PMP exam before you take it. The test has 180 multiple-choice questions, for which exam-takers have three hours and 50 minutes to complete. The content of the exam covers three domains, weighted as follows:

  • People – 42%
  • Process – 50%
  • Business Environment – 8%
  • Is the PMP Exam Difficult?

    It’s hard to assign the PMP certification exam a level of difficulty because it can differ for each individual. It depends on several factors, including work experience, education, test-taking attitude, learning style, and most importantly, the amount of preparation the person has done to be ready for the test. Well-prepared learners may not find the PMP too difficult, while those who haven’t taken the time and effort to study and practice may find it much harder.

    Ultimately, taking a PMP practice exam is the best way to determine how prepared an individual is for the official test. If someone can pass the practice test, it’s likely they can pass the real one.

    Why Take the Project Management Professional Practice Exam?

    There are multiple reasons that taking the PMP practice test is a good idea, especially if you want to become PMP certified. After completing the PMP Training Course and putting in the time and effort to learn the material for the certification exam, you will want to confirm you know what is needed to actually pass the certification exam and earn the credential. The best way to do that is by taking a practice test. Taking the PMP practice test will help you:

  • Know what to expect – The practice test is like the official test, so you will know exactly what to expect on the official exam.
  • Identify knowledge gaps – If there is knowledge that is lacking, performance on the practice test will reveal it, allowing you to study those areas before the certification test.
  • Know how to manage time – For some people, taking a timed test presents a challenge all its own. Taking the practice test will let you know if you need to work on managing your time better.
  • Have more confidence – For those who experience test-taking anxiety, taking a practice test can help alleviate it, so you have more confidence and less worry on official exam day.
