“Among 200 questions about 90% were situational, and only about 20-25 were math or definition. There were no questions sound like ‘What is input to Develop Charter process’. Almost all of them are like ‘What you should do (should have done)’.”

Marina Matveeva passed the PMP® Exam and became a PMP®. Below is her lessons learned:

  • The PMP® exam was really difficult – I wasn’t sure whether I could pass when attempting it. Questions were very wordy and tricky.
  • You have to remember exactly what actions are done when and in what process
  • Try to solve 1 question per minute
  • Mark questions for review if you are not sure about the answer
  • About 90% of the questions were situational
  • I did a brain dump before the exam, very useful.
  • You will need to show all your pockets before the entering the exam room every time
