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.
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:
- 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.
- 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.
- Avoid doing any tests if the website says that the questions are based on an older edition of the PMBOK Guide.
- 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.
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.
