what other simulator did you use?
Thank you for the response Tim. I have a question on Conflict resolution techniques Questions I recently came across. Could you explain which conflict techniques will result in win - win or lose - lose situation ? I read "confrontation" is Win- Win although I could not find anything about confrontation in PMBOK.

Please let us know the correct link.
Also, I would like to know, how many times can we take these tests? Are there any limits?

The mock exams are part of the course package, if you have access to the course on the LMS, you will be able to see these as Simulation test papers.
Where is MY TEST Tab? I don't have in my account. can you p lease help?
Sorry for confusing, with the lauch of new Lms, the test are part of the course. Once you login into the LMS and access the course, you will find the tests at the end of the TOC.
Did you pass your PMP ?
I got also same score in mock test of simplilearn.....
Your test scores look good and improved with every tests which you have attempted. However you can take up these Simulation tests n number of times and improve your scores.
Along with this you would also have access to Master Quiz ( under "Learning Tools" tab ) in your LMS and we hope you are practicing all the quizzes.
If you have already taken up PMP exam then please go ahead and share your experience regarding the same so that it is helpful for our students who are planning to take up the exam in future.
Hi, I'm currently working through the 5 tests with my simpliliearn training package and nearly hitting 80% by the 4th exam now. Questìon is how similar to the real thing do people find these tests? Thanks
Thank you Shruti, I am only on day 2 of the course so I will wait a bit before taking it but appreciate the resource.
This is very nice! I am studying the chapters currently and will take the test soon.
BUT a suggestion on page formatting: Latest comments should be seen first rather in the last page.
It feels weird to see comments from 2015 when you enter this post !!

hei i have taken all the simulation tests. on first attempt the scores ranged from 63%-76% for the 7 tests and second attempt ranged between 86%-94%.
i have covered all drills in PMP simulator and Iam also nearing the Guru Badge in the projectmanagement.com. Am i ready to take the test.
but Iam not feeling very confident. i have test scheduled for 28th September.
any tips or suggestions.
hei, Iam glad that i cleared PMP in first attempt on 28th Sep.
The hardest part was to sit for four hours focused. I completed in 3 hrs and spent one hour reviewing the marked questions.
The entire credit is for Simplilearn. Going through the course material for second time really helped to clear the concepts.This along with PMBOK did the work I guess.
The sample papers really helped to keep up the focus.
Today i have passed my PMP exam. Thank you coach Mr.Jerome for your insights and help. Also to Simplilearn for the materials & test papers which helped me to prepare well.
Hello Tim, I have a question on the Exam Content Outline. The Task 6 of Domain IV Monitoring and Controlling is "
Capture, analyze, and manage lessons learned, using lessons learned management techniques in order to enable continuous improvement. ". What is the process? Is it Manage Knowledge? Or do I just need to memorize that this is in the Monitoring and Controlling group?
Here is my 1st attempt scores:
Test 1: 70%
Test 2 : 73%
Test 3 : 68%
Test 4 : 82%
Sorry - almost lost this question.
The Exam Content Outline have a couple characteristics that you must consider:
These are the tasks a PM performs, managing a project.
The Exam Content Outline is updated on an alternate cycle from the PMBOK, at about the same length (~ 3 years).
Put this together, and you can see how the Exam Content Outline can be perceived to be at cross to the PMBOK.
The process "Manage Project Knowledge" was created to centralize capturing lessons learned. If you observe OPA updates, this was the only place you could capture lessons learned. There are still OPA updates (you can find the page references in the index), but they are reserved purely for updating process and procedure. If you go to p. 105, you'll see this described in the OPA update description of Manage Project Knowledge.
The Exam Content Outline was created when the 5th edition was still being published. This will be updated to align to the 6th edition when we see the Exam Content Outline updated, most probably next year.
I passed the exam last Saturday and have got my certificate. Appreciated the support received from Tim, Mukesh and others.
Today i have passed my PMP exam (4 AT and 1T), Thank you TIM and Simplilearn for your excellent coaching and materials; I found Mock 6 and 7 are very useful.

If tasks are scheduled to begin at early start date, what is true?
Activity B has a free float of 10 d.
Activity B has a total float of 10 d.
Activity A has a free float of 10 d.
Activity A has a total float of 10 d.

I failed my 1st attempt of PMP exam , plz guide me for next attempt to pass the exam.
Recommendations for approaching the exam for the 2nd time: first take 2-4 days off to relax and rebuild your self-respect. You are not your score, you are not your credentials. You are something better - the ability to grow and progress.
You know more now than you did before the exam - you can plan much better.
Remove All expectations of a deadline. This time, focus on quality.
Measure your determination to pass. This is critical. Start when you have a real reason to pass.
Use data to measure progress - use a journal to track the number of questions you got wrong daily, and write what ratio of questions you got wrong based on category - possibly knowledge area, process group, category of question (50-50, Root cause analysis, etc.), whatever you can find.
Study, review and ask questions on the areas you find to be weakest. Find your weakness and offer it no opportunity to bring you down.
Ask questions until every expert is tired of answering them. Be forward - this is for your progress, and you are the servant of your objective, not others.
Give yourself time to live, though - an hour a day of study and practice is good enough for preparation, if you use your time well.
You need to demonstrate to yourself that you have overcome your true adversary - lack of confidence. For this, find mentors, utilize your experts, and be single-minded and single-focused in breaking down, understanding, and answering these tricky questions.
Stay in touch. Ask your questions, Give confusion and doubt no quarter until you have obtained your objective. Then you can rest and celebrate, After that - you get to look for an even bolder, more challenging objective. You are a human, and because of that, I believe in you.
Was reviewing my test 5 and this came up. is this correct?
All of the following are functions of the project management office EXCEPT:
SELECT THE CORRECT ANSWER
A.Monitoring compliance with project management standards policies, procedures, and templates via project audits
B.Coaching, mentoring, training, and oversight
C.Managing shared resources across all projects administered by PMO
D.Identifying and developing the organization's methodology, administrative practices, and rules
Correct Option D
The PMO's role is to identify and develop the project management methodology, best practices, and standards.
The role of the PMO is two-fold:
Provide a standard approach to PM through frameworks and governance
Work as a reference or 'library' for Project-related best practices and standard procedures.
Compare these two bullets against the four options, and D is the furthest away from aligning with these two.
I gave 3 simulation tests....my score neither increasing nor decreasing...its constant 59.5%,.....not sure why.....!!!
Are you reviewing the questions you got wrong? studying those areas again?
Hello. Curious about Question 139 on Practice Exam 6 and was seeking some additional guidance or clarification. Thank you
In a negotiated cost plus incentive fee (SPIF) contract, the following figures were finalized: a target cost of $355,000, a target fee of $45,000, and a sharing ratio of 75/25. If the actual cost of the project is $390,000, what will be the final fee to the seller?
Correct Option: B
Explanation - As the cost of the project is lower than expected, the seller will receive their $45,000 fee plus $25% of the savings between $355,000 and $325,000 ($25,000 x 25% = $7500). $45,000 + $7500 = $52,500
We should be looking at a loss here. Thanks for highlighting this question for us.
Thank you Tim. Therefore would the correct answer be (A)?
Can some one please reply to this
