What's the most difficult question you've faced in a mock exam?

It could be a general topic
It could be a knowledge area
It could be a process group
It could be a particular question that you never got by
It could be a phrase/wording

I want to hear from your experiences...

The hardest questions for are when ALL the answers seemed right! The risk and change management questions are the worst
A new risk has popped up on your project. This project is halfway through what is your next step,
a. Add the risk to the risk registry
b. Inform your supervisor of the risk
c. Schedule a team meeting to discuss the risk
d. Update the risk management plan

These get me everytime

Hi Jenny
I normally discard b,c inmediatly... then in d; the risk managment plan is already updated and should tell you how to handle an emergent risk.
A in my opinion should be a straight forward answer.

When in doubt for "All-of-the-above" always think of what needs to be done first.

To be honest, 75% questions were hard to answer as all four answers seems right. it can make a person freaky ;)
I agree with jenny, risk and change management questions were really hard to answer for me too.

Jenny, I agree that the worst questions are those that seem to have multiple correct answers, and you're expected to pick the best of the correct answers. There are tips out there to help navigate through these tricky PMP questions. I don't recall them all, but I remember "Never Escalate." So if one of the answers is merely informing a stakeholder, that's not the best answer (even if it's important).

Another tip- on any test- is to avoid absolutes. Any choice that states "always" or "never" is probably incorrect.

Depends upon the aptitude of a person. like i faced difficulty in Procurement management area and one of my friend he faced problem in risk management.

In that case, you need to think about the following corners as fast as you can.
Quick Risk Response Process.
Project Impact Analysis
Risk Cost Evaluation.

The best option is "A", Add to the risk register to start process and to mitigate the risk.

like these right?

11) When estimating time for activities, a PM should:
a) Use the best guess and estimate for all activities as there will be changes anyways as the project progresses and more information becomes available
b) Involve people who will be doing the work to get estimates
c) Estimate for what the cost will allow and not include buffers
d) None of the above
