Free PMP Exam Simulator & Free PMP Exam Questions

Many PMP aspirants (myself included) can attest that buying a premium exam simulator to get the real exam question experience is vital in passing the exam and worth the investment.  Don’t just rely on free questions to practice and prepare for the exam.  The free questions are here to supplement your study only.

With that said, there are a handful of websites that provide free PMP exam questions and some of them offer free PMP exam simulator.  I narrowed down the best ones with the following preference in mind:

  • Hassle-free access that does not require you to give your name, email, or register.  However, most of the free sites that keep up with the 2021 exam update will require free email registration.
  • Free with at least 100 questions.
  • Must have question accompany with answer key. 

Warning: With the recent 2021 PMP exam change, the some of the free question sites are not aligned to the new 2021 Exam Content Outline (ECO).  It is important to use a premium exam simulator aligned with the new ECO to prepare for the new 2021 PMP exam.
