As a result of meeting rigorous standards for training quality and effectiveness over the years, KnowledgeHut has now achieved Premier Authorized Training Partner (ATP) status with PMI.  

You cannot take the PMP exam without undertaking 35 hours of project management education, either as a self-paced e-learning or live instructor-led training from an Authorized Training Partner (ATP) of PMI, like KnowledgeHut.

To fulfil eligibility requirements for the PMP exam, you must fulfill the following: 

EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND:

  • Secondary Degree (high school diploma, associate’s degree or global equivalent), OR

The expert will hand-hold you through the entire process, so that you can focus on what matters - your exam preparation. In addition to this, you’ll also benefit from a 100% money-back guarantee.

Step 8: Schedule your PMP exam on the PMI® app, my.pmi.org; you can choose to take the exam at a Pearson VUE test center or via the online proctored testing solution.

The book includes The Standard for Project Management. The standard is the foundation upon which the vast body of knowledge builds, and the guide serves to capture and summarize that knowledge.

The latest version is the Seventh Edition, published in July 2021.

The PMBOK® Guide is a great resource and an extremely useful one to master project management skills. 

Please note that the PMBOK® Guide, 7th Edition does not impact the PMP® Exam Prep Training Material, which has been developed to align to the PMP Exam Content Outline.

The latest PMP exam was rolled out by the Project Management Institute (PMI®) on January 2, 2021.

The latest (2021) PMP certification exam pattern is as follows: 

  • Number of questions: 180 (the previous exam was 200, but the same number of questions will be scored)
  • Time: 230 minutes
  • Breaks: One additional break for a total of two 10-minute breaks for computer-based tests; no scheduled breaks for paper-based exams.
  • Question type: Combination of multiple-choice, multiple responses, matching, hotspot and limited fill-in-the-blank. See prototype questions for examples.
  • Difficulty level: The questions are populated as per the difficulty level. The questions are randomized so that no two candidates will get similar questions. The easier the question, the higher the passing score determinant and the higher or tougher the question, the easier the passing score. 
  • Domains covered: While the old exam focused mainly on the stages of a project, the new one encompasses everything and everyone involved, namely:

  1. PEOPLE – 42% of items on the exam, emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team. 
  2. PROCESS – 50% of items on the exam, reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project.
  3. BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – 8% of items on the exam, highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy.

The exam will include content that spans the value delivery spectrum, including predictive, agile and hybrid approaches.

The new examination blueprint detailing the percentage of questions contained in each project management process group is as follows: 

  • People: 42%  
  • Process: 50% 
  • Business Environment: 8% 

More details can be found in the PMP New Examination Content Outline – Jan 2021 

PMI® rolled out new changes to the PMP exam based on thorough research into how the project management profession has evolved since the last changes made in 2015. Three significant changes include:

1. PMP Exam Format

The new exam is comprised of 180 questions, which need to be answered within 230 minutes (one additional break for a total of two 10-minute breaks for computer-based tests; no scheduled breaks for paper-based exams). Questions will be a combination of multiple-choice, multiple responses, matching, hotspot and limited fill-in-the-blank.

2. PMP Exam Content

While the old exam focused mainly on the stages of a project, the new one encompasses everything and everyone involved, namely:

PEOPLE – 42% of items on the exam, emphasizing the skills and activities associated with effectively leading a project team. 

PROCESS – 50% of items on the exam, reinforcing the technical aspects of managing a project.

BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT – 8% of items on the exam, highlighting the connection between projects and organization strategy.

3. Exam Preparation

Through its Authorized Training Partners (ATP), PMI is making available its digital resources for exam preparation. When you enrol for KnowledgeHut's PMP training, you will receive comprehensive exam preparation support.

You can learn more about the 2021 PMP Exam Content Outline here.

PMI takes about 5 days to carry out an Application Completeness Review. If selected for the audit process, you will have 90 days to submit your audit materials. PMI processes audit materials within 5 to 7 days.  

There is no re-evaluation for the PMP exam. However, if you fail you can attend the exam again. Ensure that you use the remaining two attempts within a year of your eligibility period. If you don’t, you cannot fill the PMP exam application form for a year. If you still fail the remaining two attempts, you have to wait for a year from your last exam attempt before you can re-apply and write the exam. 

You can retake the exam if you fail, provided your next attempt is within your eligibility period of 1 year.

If you have already passed the test, you will not be able to take it again to receive a better score.  

Your web-based exam results will be visible to you immediately upon completion of the exam.  

You can attempt the exam a maximum of 3 times within your eligibility period of 1 year.

Yes, PMI has published official samples of the latest 2021 PMP Exam. Refer prototype questions for examples.

Getting high-quality training for your PMP certification is much more than listening to lectures from an instructor. As the PMP exam can be quite challenging, it is essential that you have sufficient study resources at your disposal. At KnowledgeHut, we offer the most comprehensive and highest quality training material available and will soon be adding more.

In addition to digital resources from PMI, you can practice for the PMP exam with three Mock Exams. Our mock exams are in-depth tools intended to help you identify areas of weakness. Identify where you stand with regard to the exam and determine areas of focus for your study.

The exam file is made available the last day of class on your learning experience platform. The mock exams auto-grade your answers while providing score breakdowns by domain and task areas.
