How to Use Timed and Learning Quizzes to Assess Your Knowledge (PMP)


As you study for the exam, it is often useful to take a few short quizzes along the way to assess your understanding of the material. For example, after reading a chapter of the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), you may want to assess your current understanding. Quizzes are also an excellent way to get a sense for exam questions in that chapter and to keep yourself motivated in your studies. 


Here is how many students use the Exam Simulator:

  • In the simulator, make the following selections:
    • Timed & Learning Quizzes 
    • Quiz Mode (Choose what works best for you)
      • Timed: You have a timer and can only see answers and explanations after you complete the quiz.
      • Learning Quizzes: You have the option to see the hints and explanations as you go through the test.
  • Number of Questions: Select a small number (e.g., 10)
  • Criteria: Select a knowledge area (e.g., Integration Management)
  • Include question: Keep default = Include all questions)
  • Include Exam 8 (ITTO): Keep default = No
  • Click Start
