Hi David,

i am sorry to correct you but this is old information. There is no thing like an percentage passing score.
PMI uses since a few years the so called "psychometric sound assessment system where every exam is assessed by its own difficulty level.
If you will search for this you can find some good article's where it is described in detail.

Only thing every PMP aspirant could and also should do about this, is to assure being as well prepared as he/she can and then go for it.

In addition there is something like a general rule:
"If you can score CONSISTENTLY 75% in EVERY NEW mock exam you do, then there is a good chance that you are ready to go!"

There is no guarantee anyway ... ;)
61% - need to correctly answer 106 or more PMP® questions out of the 175 real questions

Make tons of exam questions (1200 or more) mainly situational questions. When you get 75%-85% of accurancy systematically then you are ready.

Hello Rajni,

i have just seen that you already enrolled for our "let me be your PMP guide" program and you should already have received the first section.

Since i promised that pm.com members will be preferred i will take you from the waiting list and put you directly in your free seat, so you can await a new section every week from now on.

My recommondation to you (also based on what you wrote in your email) is, start all over your preparation process and follow closely the advice given in our program sections. You will see that your results will increase over time, i promise.

Another note, doing the PM Challenge and also the PM Wars here on pm.com is absolutely fun but should NOT be used as a preparation tool for PMP exam.
You can find a lot of postings by me within this forum where i again and again have explained why i am convinced by that.

Regards,

Markus

I came here to mention this too. There is not specific score. Do not become complacent in the approach based on these inaccurate statements of 61%. Take the time to prepare appropriately. Respect the PMP exam. Its not an exam you cram for to just simply do well enough to pass.

Good Luck. You're in good hands.

There are a lot of manuals, information, charts and mock test in Internet, my recommendation

- Be sure that all is updated following PMBOK 5th edition. Some times free stuff is obsolete.
- Don't repeat twice the same mock test. Don't be a cheater.
- Try to recognize your weakness and review documentation about this point, sometimes you don't need to read all one book or a guide about Project Management, maybe you'll need to focus in Risk Management or Stakeholders.

Hi Rajni,

At this point, you sound like you have read Rita and the PMBOK. Have you identified your "gaps" in knowledge? This is where I would focus, as well as, take many different practice exams. If you choose not to this. It sounds like Markus has offered a program which may assist you. I would definitely take him up on the offer. Good Luck. Please let us know when you have passed the exam! You can do it!

Before scheduling the exam date, it is recommended to have as many mock tests as possible and to gauge your consistency to score more than 75% in at least 4 consecutive exams listed below:

I actually recommend to schedule the exam date as quickly as possible. That date will give you something to aim for. Just make sure that the date is reasonable. I gave myself about three months for each of my PMI examinations. All the best and let us know how it goes.
