Hi, I´m preparing for PMP exam and I´m wondering how useful the PMchallenge questions are as a training material. I know it has questions like agile but I see most of the questions related with PMBOK, any advice? Thanks Saving Changes...
I have to disagree with my fellow colleagues here.
I would NOT recommend to use the PMChallenge as part of your PMP preparations.
PMChallenge is fun and make help to remember some vocabulary and concepts but the questions and furthermore the answer types are not up to date and could be even misleading especially for PMP aspirants.
There are a lot of good resources for PMP prep out there.
In addition you can find several threads in the forum here where this topic is discussed already.

could you please suggest me some useful PMP exam test thanks a lot
I used PM challenge only after completly going through PMBOK and other study materials for PMP. This way PM challenge many times served as an online revision to me. However few times, my answers were not matching with the PM challenge answers which led me to again go through relevant sections of PMBOK. This way PMchallenge was helpful to me.
It cant be used as THE ONLY study tool, but can be used as an stimulator to your thinking towards many knowledge areas. Saving Changes...
I used the PM Challenge Questions when I studied for my CAPM. I found it useful in that in helped me prepare for an exam that specifically asked project management questions.
While none of these are on any PMI exam, I would highly recommend using those questions to condition your mind for project management related questions. It will help ease the anxiety of taking the exam.

Agreed here, I looked at them -- but found other materials to be far more important.
Diffulculty and content, the PM challenge questions are more in line with the CAPM. To prepare for the PMP, I would not suggest using them. There are many other sources for sample practice questions available.
