I have updated my Windows 8 app for the Project Management Professional (PMP) Exam prep app to include a free, ad supported version. I plan to keep updating the questions and extending the number of PMBOK 5th edition questions. Not being a developer, it is the coding that is taking me longer than writing more questions. Nonetheless, I think it is a fantastic resource for any one preparing for the PMP exam or simply are curious about the PMP exam experience.
For Windows 8 computers, laptops, and tablets, I created – with the help of my C# programmer friend – an app with questions I have written. These questions have been used in my PMP Exam Prep courses over the years. They have been tweaked and updated per the feedback from my students and others. Beyond trying to provide prospective PMP exam takers with good, relevant questions, I also wanted to provide them with the experience of taking the Project Management Professional (PMP) exam as it is administered by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
So those using my app will experience the PMP test taking experience as much as I could emulate. The exam questions have the 4 answer choices. There is ability to go back or forward; and even the option to jump to any question you like. You can ‘Mark’ or ‘Skip’ questions. There is a grid displaying which questions have been answered or marked (from there you can go directly to any question you feel). Like the real PMP exam, you can change your answer as many times as you like until you submit. Once you submit, your score is provided. Then, unlike the real exam, I have written some rationale for every single question so that you can get some feedback and reason for why the answers are considered correct or incorrect. The app displays the answer you selected, as well as the correct answer, if different.
Thank you for checking out my app. I have an Agile Project Management Exam prep app (PMI-ACP) in the Windows Store as well. I am working on an ITIL Foundation version. If you have questions for other certification exams, we can plug those in as well.
I am instructing an ITIL foundation class the weekend of March 23 and 24 in Redmond, WA (a suburb of Seattle). If any one is interesting in joining our class, please follow the link for more information and registration. The class currently has 10 registered participants. The class will be limited to 15 – first come, first serve.
