This article includes a video that explains how to activate your subscription to The PM Exam Simulator™.
There are two things that you need for proper Project Management Professional (PMP) Exam preparation, and that is training and a Simulator. Most of our students, they do in fact, buy not just The PM Exam Simulator™, but they also buy one of our training products. Then they spend maybe two to four weeks training, learning, going through the webinars. And then after two to four weeks, they want to use the Simulator.
Buy Now, Start Later [00:25]
The good news here is this simulator waits for you. We call this the “Buy Now. Start Later” feature that you see here. The idea behind this is that you can buy training and the simulator at the same time without losing a single second of your access time to the simulator because the Simulator only begins when you take your first exam. Let me show you how this is done.
In my second window here, I have just logged in for the first time to The PM Exam Simulator™. I've never taken a single exam. And when you scroll down to the bottom here, you will see that Your access to the “Premium Exams” has not yet been activated. Now, when I click on any of these exams or the time that learning quizzes here, so let's start with PMP Exam three, it opens it up in a new window and immediately a message pops up for account activation.
Account Activation [01:31]
“By starting this exam, you are activating your account. Your 90-day simulator access will start now. Do you wish to proceed?” Now we have two options. You can say no, that was a mistake. I didn't want to start yet. So let's click on “No, cancel” and go back. And then as you will notice here at the bottom, it still says has not yet been activated. So let's start another exam, Exam five. Same message pops up. And now I'm going to say “Yes, activate.” Now at this moment, the 90-day countdown has begun. From now on, I have 90 days almost to the millisecond until the Exam Simulator expires. So I'm going to just select D here, move on, and click on “End Exam.” Here we go. End the exam, yes. And then I'm going to close the window. Here we go. Close window.
And now when I scroll down to the bottom, it tells me exactly when the Exam Simulator will expire. You can also see that next time you start. An exam has been activated. The simulator will expire on this day right here. And that's how you purchase the simulator training bundle without losing a minute of your simulator time.
