Free PMI-ACP Practice Exam Simulator

We created this free PMI-ACP practice exam while preparing to pass the PMI-ACP ourselves. The test PMI-ACP questions played a critical role in my passing the exam, and I recommend you keep a question bank yourself while studying to go back the night before the exam.

Trust me, you cannot take too many questions before the exam, especially PMI-type questions that are written to confuse the test taker and increase the failure rate.

People fail the exam because they didn’t read the questions correctly, not because they didn’t know the subject. It would be best if you remembered this. You have one goal now: passing the exam, nothing else. Practice to pass.

The best way to practice to pass is to answer as many questions as possible and practice with exam simulators—the more, the better.

Taking Plenty of PMI-ACP Practice Exams is a must. You can’t possibly take too many practice exams before the PMI-ACP exam. I recommend trying to simulate the exam day experience by putting 3 hours aside to take the exam every day as you come up to the exam.

If you are like me and looking for some certainty before the exam, just take the hit and sign-up to a paid exam simulator. PM Prepcast Premium PMI-ACP Simulator in my opinion is the best value for money.

These exams generally complement a course provided by the provider. If you need contact hours, you should consider purchasing a self-paced study package that includes multiple practice exams.
