PMP® Practice Exam 2020

The most important PMP exam prep activity is to answer as many questions as you possibly can. To help you, we have developed this preparation test. The questions come from The PM Exam Simulator and they are all based on the most current PMP Exam that has been in effect since March 2018. Based on the PMBOK® Guide Exam 6th Edition, for the 2020 PMP Exam.    

Project Management Professional (PMP) is an internationally recognized professional designation offered by the Project Management Institute (PMI). As of March 2018, there are 833,025 active PMP certified individuals and 286 chartered chapters across 210 countries and territories worldwide. The exam is based on the PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge. 

The first time I did the questions here, I had 50%, 61%, 64% and 74%. I did all the tests again yesterday and had over 80% in all. To be sincere, the exam I took was just like the practice exam.

Exam syllabus:

The PMP exam is based on the PMP Examination Specification, which describes tasks out of five performance domains:

  • Initiating the project (13%)

  • Planning the project (24%)

  • Executing the project (31%)

  • Monitoring and controlling the project (25%)

  • Closing the project (7%)

  • The exam consists of 200 multiple choice questions written against the PMBOK specification and the PMP Code of Ethics. The exam is closed book; no reference materials are allowed. Twenty-five of the 200 questions on the exam are "sample" questions used to fine-tune the degree of difficulty and precision of the exam and as such are not counted for or against a test taker. These questions are placed randomly throughout the exam. The test taker is only graded on their proficiency on 175 questions. The numbers in parentheses describe the percentage of questions for each domain.

    Item references:

    Each exam item (a question with its possible answers) has at least two references to standard books or other sources of project management. Most of the questions reference the PMI A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (aka the PMBOK Guide). The PMBOK Guide is currently (2018) in its sixth edition, and the PMP exam changed in March 2018 to align with the updated guide.

    The Project Management Framework embodies a project life cycle and five major project management Process Groups:

  • Initiating.

  • Planning.

  • Executing.

  • Monitoring and Controlling.

  • Closing.

  • encompassing a total of 49 processes.

    Mapped to these five process groups are ten project management Knowledge Areas:

  • Project Integration Management

  • Project Scope Management

  • Project Schedule Management

  • Project Cost Management

  • Project Quality Management

  • Project Resource Management

  • Project Communications Management

  • Project Risk Management

  • Project Procurement Management

  • Project Stakeholder Management

  • The processes of these knowledge areas are described by their inputs, tools and techniques, and outputs. The PMBOK also emphasizes the interaction and interdependence between different process groups. For example, the outputs from one process may be used by one or more other processes as inputs.


    Government, commercial and other organizations employ PMP certified project managers in an attempt to improve the success rate of projects in all areas of knowledge, by applying a standardized and evolving set of project management principles as contained in PMI's PMBOK Guide.

    In December 2005, the PMP credential was number 7 of ZDNet’s 10 best IT certifications. In 2012 the PMP credential was ranked as a top certification by CIO. In 2015, the PMP credential was ranked as the #4 certification by Global Knowledge, behind 3 Security certifications.

    Examination process:

    The global network of Prometric testing centers provides the PMP exam as a computer-based test. They also offer a paper-based option for locations with no nearby Prometric testing centers. The exam consists of 200 questions ("items"). 25 are pre-release items, which are not included in exam scoring. Prometric calculates the score based on the other 175 items. Each multiple-choice item has one correct answer and three incorrect answers.

    Candidates who take the computer-based test receive their results (passed or not passed) immediately upon completion. PMI also evaluates proficiency levels in each project management process group in 4 levels. Above Target, Target, Below Target, and Needs Improvement. Examiners provide these results to the candidate on a score report after the examination. Candidates who take paper-based tests receive their test results and score reports typically within 4 weeks.

    Research shows that the most difficult Knowledge areas of the PMP® exam are Quality Management, Integration Management, and Time Management.

    Item writing:

    Item writing is an ongoing process at PMI, and they periodically add new four-choice questions (items) and remove others. Item writers use the PMP Examination Specification to identify item contents and references (project management texts or standards) to verify correctness. Individuals who are active in the field of PMP exam preparation (trainers, courseware developers, book authors, etc..) may not participate in item writing.

    Pre-requisites to become eligible:

    Candidates must have completed a high school diploma or an associates degree with 60 months and 7,500 hours of project management experience, or a bachelor's degree with 36 months and 4,500 hours of project management experience. In both cases candidates must also have 35 contact hours of project management education. The application for the exam and verification of education and experience are done online at the PMI website. Candidates without the requisite experience can consider CAPM, Certified Associate in Project Management, also from PMI.

    Continuous credential requirements:

    Continuous credential requirements are also called CCRs. To maintain the PMP qualification, 60 professional development units (PDUs) must be earned over a three-year cycle, from activities such as researching, authoring articles, speaking on project management-related topics, or being engaged full-time in project management. Credential holders may earn PDUs towards the maintenance of their credential through formal academic courses or courses offered by a provider (R.E.P. or Component). However, these are only two of the five categories of PDU earning opportunities in which a credential holder may participate.

    Effective 1 December

    Credential value:

    The US Department of Education and the National Science Foundation have deemed all United States professional certifications to be at level 50 in the Mapping The World of Education, Comparable Database System (Volume Two: Codes for Program Completion Awards by Country). The Level 50 code addresses "Postsecondary Programs and Awards of No More Than 2 Years. Programs and awards that are designed to represent no more than 2 years of study; constitute postsecondary education as operationally defined in CDS; and are not second (graduate-level) programs and awards." 

    Difference from PRINCE2:

    PRINCE2 could be seen as a competitor of Project Management Professional (PMP). In general, the USA and American countries prefer PMP, and UK, Australia and Europe prefer PRINCE2. Asia, Africa and the Middle East area have strong preference for PMP.

    PRINCE2 and PMP acknowledge each other's existence in their advertising material and attempt to position themselves as complementary products – PRINCE2 as a "methodology" and PMP as a "standard" – which can be used alongside each other. In practice, companies and practitioners choose one system or both due to the project environment, their geographical location and costs involved.
