free pmp exam questions
Free PMP exam questions can help you to validate your studies. While preparing for the exam, you can do free practice tests to find out the gaps in your learning.

If you search on the Internet, you will find umpteen websites providing thousands of free questions but only some of these websites provide reliable material.

Many of these sites have old and incorrect questions that are based on PMBOK Guide 5th edition and even older editions. Practicing sample questions from these sources is a sheer waste of time.

You should do mock tests that are updated for 2021 changes of the exam. Otherwise, it can lead to failing in the PMP certification exam.

PMI has released PMBOK Guide 7th edition but the PMP exam still follows 6th edition and Agile Practice Guide as the primary reference book.

You will find a nice compilation of free PMP exam questions and simulator tests in this post. I have browsed through many free sources so that you do not have to perform a random search. You will also find some tips to evaluate a site before attempting free questions.

Important Note: Even though I have carefully chosen these websites, you must use your own discretion while practicing questions from these websites.

How to Choose Free Sources to Practice Mock Questions?

The Internet is a great source of free content, including free PMP sample questions. If you try searching, you will find hundreds of websites providing such tests. But only few of these websites are credible. The quality of material present in most these websites is, at best, questionable.

One should be very careful while picking free stuff from the Internet. I have compiled the above list so that you can avoid such dubious websites. Having said that, you should make your own decision. The websites listed in the article are all third-party websites. I do not have any control over their content.

Do not randomly pick Free PMP sample questions from the Internet. It is one of the ​main reasons for failing in the PMP exam​.

Here are a few tips to choose a reliable website:

  1. Generally speaking, free tests from the companies selling paid content are reliable. They publish content at no cost in order to build their reputation. If they don’t give useful content, no one will buy their paid content.
  2. Before attempting questions from a website, check if the the site says that their material is updated for the 2021 changes in the PMP exam.
  3. Avoid doing any tests if the website says that the questions are based on an older edition of the PMBOK Guide.
  4. While doing your study or after completing your preliminary study, you should try 10-15 questions from each of the websites mentioned above. If you find these questions reliable, then only you should practice further. Otherwise, just leave them.

Final Thoughts

Free PMP exam questions are an integral part of your studies. You should practice a few hundred of these from 5-7 different sources. This way you will get a feel of different variations.

However, you should over-rely on these tests. You should use few paid practice tests towards the end of your study. This way you will be able to determine if you are ready for the exam or not.

You can read my article on the best PMP practice exam to choose a good paid simulator.

These simulators will cost you a little money but they are well worth the investment. They will help you in passing the PMP exam in your first try.

You can avoid paying for a paid simulator by investing a good PMP training program. A good training will come bundled with practice test simulator.

  2. Hi Praveen,

    first of all, very nice website. I will visite it more often from now. 🙂

    Regarding the free sample questions you did compile a very nice selection there; congrats.

    May be here is another link you may add to your selection:

    You have to be carefull by select your free sample questions, because quality may vary a lot and often is not as good as it should be.

    I would like to underline the suggestion Praveen allready made:
    If you could spend some more dollars to your study for PMP certification, you HAVE TO invest in a paid online exam simulator.
    It will be worth it, trust me.

    I guess, the exam simulator from Cornelius Fichtner (well known in this business!) would no bad choice at all.

    I wish you all the best for your studing and hopefully you earn pmp at your first try!



  3. Hi Praveen,

    Do you suggest to take the membership with Udemy as I have seen some bad reviews about this organisation?


  4. Hi Rajni,

    Udemy does not create or courses – it is an aggregator. Udemy is just a platform to host courses. The courses are created by individual instructors of training companies. So, out of many courses only few are good, including the one referenced in the article.

    I am not sure which reviews you have seen or what you have heard. But I did not find any problem with Udemy as a platform – I myself have taken a few courses.

    You can also read my Udemy review..

    Good luck.

  5. I purchased the Udemy package by Ravi for the practice questions only, and so far, am not impressed with teh questions. They make me wonder if they are actually helping/hurting my study prep. I can’t imagine many of the questions on the exam are worded the way these are, but what do I know.

    Anyways, will continue to try to use the questions but will drop it if my prep doesn’t improve.

    1. Hi Jack,

      I believe you are talking about Practice Q by Ramzi. Two things:
      1. These are better than free Q. They can replace your free Q set.
      2. The difficulty level of mixed Q is better. Try to do one of those.
      It is also possible you have studied very well and finding the Q easy 🙂

      Having said that, I agree that some Q could have been framed better. That is why recommend a two pronged approach to pass the exam. You should read these articles:
      1. Check your Exam readiness –
      2. Best PMP simulator –

      All the best.

  6. I am looking at writing my exam this Tuesday, 23 May 2017. Are the sample questions linked above still relevant to today’s exams or is it better to purchase new moch exams from the likes of PM Exam Simulator even though they are quite expensive 🙁


  7. I just passed my PMP today by 3 above targets one target and one need improvement, improvement was in closing….couldn’t have done it without this website, udemy, PMP prepcast , and izen videos on YouTube.

    In total time to study about 2 months, followed PMBOK and some chapters from Rita, 5th edition as 6th was not available….and it was beyond my budget to buy new online….

    But thanks to all these websites and simulators!!

  8. Hi Praveen,

    Thanks so much for doing this. It is quite helpful for exam preparation. I also read through your simulator comparison ( as well and recently I bought PM Prepcast and start taking the test questions.

    From my personal point of view, having exam generator functionality and close enough practice to real exam is the main benefits for exam preparation.


  9. Hi Mr Malik,

    I want to purchase ITTO quiz, which I am not able to, as payment option paypal is not acceptaed at your end, whic is the only payment option on the site.

    pls support.


      1. Hi Mr Malik,

        Thx for ITTO quiz issue. Further, can you pls guide, which is better simulator – PM Prepcast or simulator from Master of Project academy?


  10. Hello Praveen,

    First of all, good listing of resources. I will like to visit here more often. You compiled very good listing of these PMP Simulators.

    I think from this list OliverLehman are the best among these.

  11. The PMP Exam does not test on the ITTOs, and Knowledge Areas as was present in PMP exams prior to January 2, 2021. So, as stated on this web site, only use simulators that are 180 questions and are stated to be for the exam that is current as of 1/2/2021.
