Top Free PMP Exam Questions & Practice Tests of 2021 [PMBOK 6th Ed.]


There are umpteen websites that provide thousands of free PMP exam questions.

But should you practice mock tests from these websites? Are free sources reliable?

Only some of the websites have reliable free questions. But most of these sites have old and incorrect sample questions. You will find questions based on PMBOK Guide 5th and older editions. Practicing from these sources is a sheer waste of time. You should do tests based on PMBOK Guide 6th edition only. Otherwise it can lead to failing in the PMP certification exam.

You will find a nice compilation of free PMP exam questions in this post. I have browsed many free sources of PMP mock tests and sample questions so that you do not have to perform a random search.

I have chosen reliable sources of free mock tests that can help you in your certification journey. Even though I have carefully chosen these websites, you must use your own discretion while practicing questions from these websites.

Which Free PMP Mock Tests Should You Choose To Practice 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 PMP sample questions 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​.

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.

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.

In the following section, you can find a small list of tests that are no longer current. They are from older editions of the PMBOK Guide. Although many experts still publicize these sources, you should strictly avoid them.

PMP Practice Simulator

PMI used to have an eReads section on their website. Access to eReads was free for PMI members. It contained digital copies of many popular PMP books, including digital edition of Christopher Scordo’s book. It contained about 1000 PMP exam sample questions. These questions were considered to be the Gold Standard for the exam. Unfortunately PMI has taken off eReads after January 2016.

Today, you can either buy Christopher Scordo’s book or his company’s exam simulator for those questions. You can read my article on Best PMP Exam Simulator for a comparative review of Scordo’s simulator with other top simulators.

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 first try.

If your budget does not allow you buy a full featured simulator, you can try Udemy courses. They do not provide simulator features but have good sample questions.

Final Thoughts

Free PMP exam question are an integral part of your prep. You should practice a few hundred of these from 5-7 different sources. This way you will get a feel of different variations. But don’t over-rely on them. You should follow them up with a 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.

Over To You

What is your opinion about this list? Do you know of any other credible source of free tests? Please leave a comment.

Good luck to all the PMP aspirants.

  • Need to know the level of question meets the PMI PMP Standard? It looks very interesting and informative questions. Please help.

    • Hi Saurabh, I have personally looked at all the sources I mentioned. All have good Q. Oliver's Q might be most difficult of the lot.

  • 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:

    http://preparepm.com/pmp/questions.html

    @Saurabh:
    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!

    Regards,

    Markus

    • Hi Markus, Thanks for the appreciation and sharing the link. Let me take a look at it

  • Hi Praveen,

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

    Thanks
    Rajni

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 :(

    Thanks
    Victor
