I don't think it's a number, it's more what is your level of success.
Preparation should be about understanding.
Sample questions are a a way to test yourself and see how question are formulated.
0001 to 1000 (0 votes)
1001 to 2000 (1 vote)
2001 or More (0 votes)
No Idea or it depends on each person (0 votes)
I think it depends on how quickly you can get to a passing score. Of course, that's kind of hard to know now that you are not given a score anymore. (When I took mine in 2003, I needed 82.5% to pass.)
Of course, the real answer should be: as many as you can get in before the exam.
This is interesting, because it takes me me to another question, What's the suggested average scores in practice test that indicates that you're ready for the real exam.
For you it was 82.5%, for others is 90%, I even see a suggested of 95% score as indicator for readiness.
Of course it depends on the type of practice test, that's why the question is posted as average.
a) 0001 to 1000 (0 votes)

there is a thumb rule that you should score 75%+ in every NEW mock exam you take, than there would be a good chance that you are ready to go for it. There is and will be no guarantee at all.
The number of sample questions depends on the already gained skill and knowledge. Sample questions and mock exams should be utilized to figure out where the weak areas are and than focus on them.
So, you have to take sample questions as long as you have a good feeling for all knowledge areas.
Some will need less than 1000 otheres may be need more than 3000 ...
But more important than the number of the sample questions/mock exams is the quality imho.
If you only use free available stuff and maybe even from not so serious resources this could be even counterpproductive ...
My recommondation would be to rely on few really serious resources for free stuff and much better, invest some bucks in one or two professional online simulators where you also be able to really SIMULATE the exam situation.
For free stuff please refer to this guide which contains the best and most popular resources for free available questions:
? PMP Exam Questions - The Complete Guide ?
Also every PMP aspirant should take at least two (better more) full loaded and full timed mock exams.
A really good (and the omly multilingual) simulator with more than 3.000 high quality sample questions could be find at pmaspire.
Please find here an overview about what you could expect in each package (Silver; Gold; Platinum); you may have a look here: ? http://goo.gl/SZ1tp1
If someone is interested in one of those packages just let me know, i could offer you some discount on them.
These types of questions are impossible to answer properly. Some people can do a few hundreds questions and pass - others can do thousands and fail.
It all depends, on ............. .............. .............. so many factors
