Preparing to Pass the PMP Exam

The PMP Exam Simulator is designed for anyone preparing to take the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exam.  

The questions in this exam simulator were created by PMI certified experts. Using the simulator as part of your study practice will help you quickly understand what PMP study areas require more focus before you take the real exam. 

This simulator also allows you to review the reasoning behind each question to understand which responses are correct. The latest PMBOK® Guide and Agile Practice Guide page references are included for every explanation. 

Know what to expect on the exam day, get familiar with question format, wording and sample content in advance with access to more than 600 practice questions. Complete your study plan and take the exam with confidence of achieving success. 

What’s included in the PMP Exam Simulator?

The content of the simulator is based on the latest 2022-2023 PMP Exam Content Outline. It includes:
  • Access to 680 situational PMP questions developed by PMI certified practitioners.
  • 15 sets covering the different project management approaches, knowledge areas, and performance domains.
  • 2 PMP mock exams (180 questions each).

Why you should use this PMP Exam Simulator

There are plenty of PMP simulators on the market, but very few are actually similar to the real PMP Exam. Don’t waste your time on thousands of irrelevant questions. What makes this simulator unique is that:

  • The questions were written recently and are aligned with the current PMP Exam Content Outline.
  • All the questions are situational and very close to the real PMP Exam.
  • The questions cover the different project management approaches (agile and predictive).
  • All the questions are unique with no repetition.
  • The feedback on each question are very detailed, to help you understand why that is the right answer.
  • The questions are authored by PMI certified project management experts.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Find your questions answered and everything you need to know about the course.

Need further information?
What do I need to access this Simulator?

To access and use this PMP Simulator, you only need an Internet connection and any of your smart devices: Smartphone, tablet, laptop, etc. However, to get the best experience and simulate the exam conditions, we recommend using a laptop or desktop computer.

How long can I access the PMP Exam Simulator?

You will have access to the PMP Exam Simulator for 90 consecutive days. Access will start as soon as your login details are released to you by email. These 90 days will commence from when you receive your username and password, rather than when you first log in. For this reason please ensure you are ready to use the program before sending a request.

Does the PMP Exam Simulator qualify for Contact Hours?

The PMP Simulator does not provide project management training, therefore it does not qualify for contact hours. You can obtain the required 35 contact hours to be eligible for the PMP exam through our PMP Passport course. This exam simulator is also included in the course fee.

How much time will I need to practice on the PMP Exam Simulator?

Answering all of the simulator questions without checking the explanations might require a total of 15 hours. But, we do recommend going through the provided explanations in order to identify any knowledge gaps. You can also retake the tests as many times as possible until you score 60% or more.

Can I buy the Simulator now and use it later on?

Upon purchasing the simulator, you will have 90-days access to use it whenever and wherever you want.

Is the PMP Exam Simulator suitable to people without former project management knowledge/experience?

The PMP® certification is suitable for practising project management professionals from various industry backgrounds. This simulator was designed to be part of an intensive exam preparation, so it is most beneficial for those who have previously done some training covering project management approaches (predictive and agile), concepts, principles, tools and processes. If you still need to get the required project management training to apply for the PMP exam, check out the PMP Passport course.

What are the delivery formats available for the PMP Passport course?

The PMP Passport course is available in two formats:  

  • Online. Classes typically run over four consecutive days online from 8:30 am to 5:00 pm. Your instructor is a certified PMP practitioner with real-industry experience. Do not worry about missing an online class – a recording of each online class will be available for playback in the Student Hub for a limited period of time. Please note that depending on demand and instructor availability, we might also offer this programme as an evening part-time training. Reach out to our support team for more information. 
  • Classroom. Choose classes on campus for in-person learning with industry-expert lecturers. Classes run at the National College of Ireland (Dublin). Please note the scheduling of classroom courses may have been affected by Covid-19.
