When to Schedule the PMI® PMP® Test?

Somewhere during your preparation, you must consider this question: when to schedule the PMP® Exam. Most of the PMP®s agree that you should not wait till the last minute to schedule it as the available of suitable time slots for the PMP® Exam cannot be guaranteed.  Also, don’t wait until it is the eleventh month within your 1-year validity period. Schedule early so that you can have time for 2 more chances in case you fail the first attempt.

Must Follow

  • Fix the exam date early to set you a target
  • But can delay the exam date (with or without cost) later if you need more time to study
  • But don’t over study


  • Schedule the exam on Monday or in the morning (so as to have enough rest before the exam)
  • Take a few days off work before the exam
