PMP certification - prep questions

Reactions: 
As the Getting PMP certified article got so much positive feedback, I though I should also share some of the providers of free tests. I have also used them during my certification prep period as well, and I've found them really useful.

You should simulate your exam at least 3 times before stating that you are ready for the BIG TEST, so the links below should help you a lot. Still, one word of caution: not all the questions seem to have the right response, and not all explanations are really in line with PMBoK - but if you have a good knowledge of the practice part of Project Management, and if you've read the books I've recommended, you can already discover them.

Don't go for the real PMP exam if you don't score 80% in these simulations - they seemed to me a little bit easier than the real exam.

  2. PMSuccess offers via PMHub.net 400 questions to play with. Not an exam simulation per-se, but you can always try to do 200 questions in a row to get the feeling.

  4. There are 2 real-time simulations here: a 200-question exam for the PMP certification, and a 150-question exam for the CAPM certification.

  6. A real-time experience with 200 questions. ANd they don't really try to sell you anything, which is pretty cool :)

"Free 200 question test. This test includes all the final PMP Exam features including Marking Questions,Dummy Questions , Countdown timer and more. "
As mentioned in a previous post, there are several resources that you can use when you are not online. While I have not tried them myselves, you might be interested to go through
Hot Topics: Flashcards for Passing the Pmp and Capm Exams.

I've used the previous version of this book a lot, so I recommend it to you from all the heart:
PMP Exam Prep, Sixth Edition: Rita's Course in a Book for Passing the PMP Exam
Well, and in the Books section of the site you can also find additional resources that will help you get the certification, but also gain a better understanding of the complex topics in Project Management.

One interesting site that I've found recently is also this one below. I will continue adding more relevant sites as I discover them.
