 1. Learn by solving questions is better than reading the theoretical materials

2. At the end of each training session, it is important to find the questions where you were wrong, read and understand the correct answer, in order not to have the same mistake in a similar questions in the future – this is the way to get better!

3. Solve questions with a timer to simulate the pressure of time you have during the exam and check if you solve questions in a reasonable time.

4. Use the different files we provide at our course student page (user name and password are required) -


The Day of the PMP® exam

It is recommended not to take a simulation test a day before the exam in order to save your strengths and prevent a mental load.

Sleep well the night before the exam.

At the morning of the exam, eat well. If the exam is taking place during noon hours then don't eat close to the exam hour.

Remember – proper nutrition helps maintain concentration.

Arrive to the exam center before your scheduled time in order to find your class and also locate the closest toilets facilities. Remember – breaks during the exam is at your expense.


During the PMP® exam

1. Draw/write the matrix of the project processes and knowledge areas and the formulas on the papers/whiteboard you receive – do it before the exam starts, using the time you are given for checking the computer-human interface. Ask the supervisor in place 2 minutes for arrangements and then press the start button by yourself. It is important that you write down the data not on expense of the exam time. This data will help you in the advanced stages of the exam when your focus is not at the pick.

2. Read the last line first / the question itself first. Sometimes, only by this information you can know what the correct answer is (or at least what is not the correct answer).

3. Use the 'mark'/'flag' option for question you feel that are taking too much time to solve or that you are not sure of your answer and you would like to get back to those questions at the end of the time, assuming you got time left. Statistically, your first choice is the right answer (for example- if you used the elimination technique but weren't sure what to choose between the 2 final answers).

4. Don't fight the questions – if you could not solve it within a minute, mark the answer you think is most likely to be correct, flag it and move to the next one.

5. Notice the exam timer – check yourself every period of time and check if the quantity of answered questions is good. For example – after 1 hour, 50 questions needs to be already behind you. If you solved less - take a quick break, wash your face, eat something sweet and get back to the exam with energies and a faster pace.

6. Try to identify keywords / phrases that can give a clue to solve the question correctly or at least help you rule out 1-2 possible answers. The elimination method will help you to choose the right answer.
