On this page, I’m going to provide you with a few free and paid PMP exam sample questions and mock tests, which I believe will be great resource for you to pass the PMP exam.
While compiling the list of free PMP exam sample questions, I took the utmost care verifying the authenticity of resources and the quality of the questions.
You can visit these sites and take advantage of the resources available there for your PMP exam preparation.
We will start with the free PMP exam sample questions.
Free PMP Exam Sample Questions
If you search the internet for free PMP exam sample questions, you will get hundreds of sites and thousands of questions. Some are useful while others are not.
In most cases, the questions available on these sites are of poor quality, based on an old version of the exam, or provide incorrect answers.
Before subscribing to any site ensure that the site is authentic, the answers are error free and the questions are aligned with the latest version of the PMBOK Guide.
To make this process easier for you, I am providing you with a few well regarded resources where you can get many good quality, free PMP exam sample questions.
Okay, let’s get started.
Oliver Lehmann’s 75 Questions
This is one of the most famous sets sample of questions for PMP aspirants. Some experts claim that if you manage to get over 70% on this test you are prepared for the exam.

Like Edwel Programs 50 questions, the 100 questions are also free.
This concludes the list of the free question banks that I feel are worth visiting.
Free PMP Exam Mock Tests
Mock tests provide you with a virtual environment where the provider strives to duplicate the real exam. Once you start the mock test, the timer will begin and you will have 200 questions to solve.

Paid PMP Exam Sample Questions
Here I am going to provide you with a few high quality PMP exam sample question resources available for purchase. The paid options provide answers to your queries, these sites also ensure their questions are updated with the current exam content guidelines.
Buying a few paid question banks and simulators is crucial because many of the free questions available on the internet suffer from poor quality and are not updated with the current syllabus. Free sites often offer no support and many times errors are never corrected.
If you are seriously preparing for the exam, you should be ready to spend some money on it. Think of it as an investment in the success of your project management career.

The cost of this eBook is 5 USD and it is available in three formats, PDF, ePub, and Mobi, so you can use it on your smartphone, Kindle device, PC, laptop, and Nook.
Video Course from Udemy
Udemy has many video-based programs that can help with your PMP exam preparation. One notable thing about Udemy is that it provides you with lifetime access to the course.
While searching on Udemy, I found one course which has many PMP exam sample questions. The details of this course are as follows:
PMP Exam Practice Test Kit
This is a video-based course from GreyCampus.
This course has 25 questions for each knowledge area, 15 project management templates, and 500 flashcards. I believe this will be useful for you.
The cost of this program is 25 USD, and you get lifetime access.
I don’t want to exhaust you by providing thousands of questions whose authority and quality cannot be tested. Moreover, practicing too many questions can be a waste of time. I believe practicing about 1,000 to 1,500 quality questions will be sufficient for you to pass the exam.
Focus on a few high quality questions instead of trying thousands of low quality questions.
