This trail is assuming that the student has the best quality mock examns available and that results corresponds to first-time results.

And remember, it's a recommendation...

Since there was more often mentioned now the answer

90% in the last postings i want to comment this, because i do think that is not only wrong, it could also be disturbing and demotivating for actual PMP aspirants.

Why do i think it is wrong?
Well, the original question is asking for the "recommended" passing score, right?
And since PMI is not publishing any passing score since years, no one could answer this question absolutly, right?
Well, to give aspirants an orientation anyway there has been established a thumb rule (by people who do know what they are talking about) which goes like that:

"If you could score CONSISTENTLY 75%+ in ANY NEW mock exam you take, than there is a good chance that you are ready to go."

Please do not get me wrong.
If you in personal set your goal at 90%+ because you do so always and that is how you get your confidence you need, well. Why not.

But this should never be the general recommendation for new aspirants from my perspective.

Regards,

Markus

Markus - thanks for you input.... We appreciate input from those who knows what they are talking about, yet the person indicated 90% gave his / her personall opinion, we appreaciate those too.

Having said that, this could never be a close-ended answer because it all depends on particular situations, but discussions are interesting so that each one can rate were they are, use these suggestions and decide.

Once again, thanks for you input.

Hello George,

i do not really understand why you always double your questions as polls on one hand and as questions here in the discussion board on the other hand?!?!
Could you explain the deeper sense that may be lying in this procedure?
I have the feeling i have missed something ...
Markus - I don't understand your question, because my researches and polls are rather personal and has nothing to do with discussion trails, which are also personal.

I would say, if you wish a personal input on one of my approaches, please send me a personal note.

Otherwise, that's it...

Recommended score is 80% but I think 70% is also fine.

it depends on the PM understanding

I never scored better than 74% on a mock exam but I still passed. I suspect the passing score is considerably lower than most people think it is.
