The Best Online Resources for Free PMP Exam Sample Questions in 2015

Ask any professional who has taken (or is preparing to take) the Project Management Professional (PMP) certification exam how to study for the test ahead of time, and they’ll likely tell you the same thing: Practice, practice, practice.

Get your hands on as many PMP practice tests and sample questions as you can, the advice always seems to go. Not only will taking practice tests make you more comfortable when it’s time for the real thing, but seeing sample questions will give you a better sense of how you’ll be tested—not only will you learn what information you need to know, but you’ll also be able to see the way the test will ask you for that information.

It’s easier said than done, though. Until very recently, practice tests or sample questions were found primarily in small sections of much larger (and expensive) books or training programs. There’s nothing wrong with books and training programs of course—they are excellent ways to learn. But what if you’re just looking to get your hands on as many practice questions as possible?

Luckily, these days there are some great resources available for free online that will let you practice a seemingly infinite amount, including the site you’re reading this blog post on. Here are the best places we’ve found so far. Know of even more? Leave a suggestion in the comments section!

Skillset
Available Questions: 5,000+
Format: Interactive Online Practice Tests

Information: In this instance, I don’t think you can fault us too much for including ourselves on this list. We’ve worked hard to build the largest, most advanced testing engine available for this exact purpose—giving hungry testers the unlimited amount of practice questions they’re looking for. Questions are grouped into specific skills so you can see exactly where your skill gaps lie, and you can track your progress every step of the way. Skillset also regularly adds hundreds of new questions, and just this month added 500 new situational PMP questions.

 

PM Study

Format: Interactive Online Practice Tests

The answer to the previous day’s question is also published with each daily update. There are no interactive elements or practice test timers as there are with other sites on this list, but it’s a very easy to use, freely available resource, and is offered by PM Success, a bilingual testing resource site available in both English and Chinese.
