Mosaic's courses are built around 1000s of PMI® style questions. This section of our website is focused on developing your understanding of how questions work in the training and in the examination.
Understanding your PMI-SP® test scores. There is a random 25% chance any answer will be correct (provided you have answered A, B C or D - one option will always be correct!). This page helps you understand how your actual test score relates to knowledge. See more on understanding your scores.
Questions and learning. Simply studying questions and answers will never provide sufficient knowledge to pass your exam! The role of questions is to sample your knowledge and provide an assessment of your overall understanding. See more on the role of questions in the learning process.
We have 1000s of questions available to trainees in addition to those included in your coursework! Whilst studying Q&As will never be enough to prepare for the exam, many people like to practice extensively. This page offers links to 1000s of additional questions that we know are of a good quality. Some are ours, others are from colleagues websites. Access the free questions.
We Tweet a new question every day - see today's question.
We also recommend a number of external resources with 100s of extra questions (mostly free).
See our list of recommended questions.
There is no implication in so far as the course is concerned – once you have completed the work we issue the completion certificate.
As far as the exam goes:
Below 75% you are not ready and will probably fail – significant revision is needed.
75% to 80% you may be on track for a pass with some focused revision on the weak areas.
Above 80% you are probably OK for the exam – above 85% you are there! You just need to keep the information ‘fresh’ until you get into the exam room.
Within this the key topics for the exam are scheduling, cost (EV) and risk – you need to be scoring well (80%) in all of these.
The course work is important, but the Module 12 100 question test which should be taken as an exam (closed book, 2 hours max) is really the key.
