Project Management Professional (PMP)® Question Strategies and Upcoming Dublin PMP Course

14 March, 2011

Today we’ll take a look at strategies for answering PMP® Exam questions even if you are not entirely sure of the answer. This is an important skill because you should answer every single question on the PMP® Exam.

The format of the PMI® PMP® exam is as follows: 200 Multiple choice questions where each question has four possible answers labelled A, B, C or D. Each correct answer is worth one point. Here’s the key point: If you don’t answer a question, it is considered incorrect and you get nothing but if you take an educated guess, you are increasing your chance of getting those valuable points. Incorrect answers are not marked negatively so it’s always worth taking a gamble even if you are unsure of the answer.

Make sure you read and understand the question and the four possible answers. Many PMP® questions will contain superfluous information which you can ignore. The possible answers will also contain 1 or 2 choices that will be blatantly incorrect. Use your project management knowledge to filter what is relevant from what is not relevant. Once you have completed this process of elimination, it’s a simply a case of making a choice.

Our Exam simulator is a great resource for practicing and perfecting these techniques. See here for more info.

Just a quick reminder that places are at a premium on our upcoming four day Dublin PMP® training course! The dates are April 6th, 7th, 13th and 14th. The course fee also includes access to our PMP® Exam simulator.
