Points to Remember: Before the PMP Exam

1. Make sure to get a good night’s sleep before you take the PMP exam. And make sure you eat something! It can take up to four hours to complete the exam. That’s longer than you expect, and you don’t get a snack break.

2. The first thing you see when you sit down to take the computerized version is a 15-minute tutorial on how to use the software. You won’t need much time to go through it, because the software is very intuitive. Use this time to relax.

3. Seriously. Relax. Everyone taking the exam gets jittery. A good thing to do is look at the 15-minute countdown timer for the tutorial and breathe. Take a whole minute and use it to breathe. If your heart is still pounding, take another minute. You’ll be glad you did.

4. Don’t click away from that tutorial yet! You’ll get some sheets of scratch paper to use. Write down every formula before you click the button to start the exam. That way they’ll be there for the questions that need them—and you won’t be nervous about forgetting them. The formulae may seem straightforward to recollect during this time, but can be quite a feat to remember them during the pressure of the exam.

5. The exam software lets you mark a question for review. If you’re at all unsure of a question, mark it. Sometimes a later question will help trigger your memory, so when you come back to it, the answer will suddenly “come” to you. This really works!

6. Don’t get too stuck on a question as you’re going through—better to take your best guess, mark it for review, and move on. You can go back to it as many times as you need.
