Your score and the correct answers will be presented at the end of each practice exam. If you take all four exams in one sitting, consider keeping each window open until you are done. This will allow you to review all of your answers at one time.

Let's Get Started
Important Test Tips
- Select a study method and stick to it. Some people prefer to take a course and others prefer to go it alone. Depending on your level of self-discipline and your learning style, either method can work.
- Begin studying early. If you are taking a course, follow the schedule. If you are studying alone, when you plan your study schedule, allow a of couple months or longer. The amount of time you need depends on the amount of time you will study each day.
- Get focused. Focus includes securing a study space that's free from distraction. If you are studying alone, a common way to lose focus is to work with too many study materials. This can send you back and forth through the materials instead of all the way through the full body of knowledge. Focus on the PMBOK® Guide. If you find there is something you don't understand, then consider an additional supplement. Don't forget about online resources.
- Read the PMP® Credential Handbook and follow the instructions in it. Inside you'll find the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. Learn it.
- Register for the exam and read the test center rules and regulations. They can vary from center to center. Know what to bring to the test center and place it all in once place the night before the exam.
- Look online and learn about the "PMP® brain dump." Decide what will be in your brain dump and practice doing it.
- If you're unfamiliar with the testing location, consider making a practice run before the exam.
- The night before the exam, eat well and get plenty of rest. Consider setting out your clothes for the morning. Since temperatures at the test center may vary, consider dressing in layers.
- On test day, plan to arrive early. Allow plenty of time for unexpected traffic delays and parking problems.
- When the test begins, you will have four hours to complete it. This is considerably more time than most people need. Take a breath, relax, and begin your brain dump. Take your time and get the brain dump right.
- When you finish early, review your answers. If you are uncertain on some, see if other questions help answer it. If you are still uncertain, stick with your first response and move on.
