Passing the Project Management Professional (PMP)® exam means that you will have to answer a lot of multiple-choice and other types of exam questions in the allotted time for the exam.

Thus, a large portion of your studies must consist of practicing exam sample questions.

Free ones are OK (mostly) and there are hundreds available. Serious athletes, however, use the right tools for their practice sessions.

So our recommendation (based on our own experience) is you should invest some money and sign up for a professional and high-quality online PMP Exam Simulator.

With the PM Exam Simulator, you can focus on testing yourself on specific topics from the quiz pool as well as take a full-length exam with questions that you have never seen before.

Fully updated to the latest PMP® Exam Content Outline from PMI®.

Be ready for your Project Management Professional (PMP)® Exam by using the best PMP Exam Simulator on the market.

The simulator gives you immediate access to a total of 2,100+ realistic PMP exam sample questions in 5 exams and a separate quiz pool.
The quiz pool allows you to focus on testing yourself on specific topics, and once you feel ready you can take a full-length exam with questions that you have never seen before.

Question style and difficulty match closely what you can expect to see on your actual exam. The questions have been developed by a team of PMP certified project management practitioners and are updated to the latest PMP Examination Content Outline from the Project Management Institute (PMI)® as well as the most current  PMBOK® Guide, the Agile Practice Guide, and the additional references listed by PMI.

What is your best answer? 

A. Reviewing the lesson learned register

B. Monitoring stakeholder engagement

C. Examining the resource breakdown structure

D. Studying the project team assignments


Which of the choices might be useful in the process of using existing knowledge and creating new knowledge to achieve the project's objectives? Remember, the question is asking to select the 'least' likely choice.

The Solution:

Click here for the right answer:

The correct answer is B

Central to knowledge management is having the right processes and people with the right knowledge. Having documents that identify the people and their capabilities are essential to identifying current knowledge and the gaps that may exist. Keep in mind that the question is asking for the action that will be 'least' beneficial in this process.

Monitor Stakeholder Engagement is the process of monitoring stakeholder relationships and tailoring strategies for engaging stakeholders through the modification of engagement strategies and plans. This process helps maintain or increase the efficiency and effectiveness of stakeholder engagement activities as the project evolves and its environment changes. The Monitor Stakeholder Engagement process belongs to the Monitoring and Controlling Process Group, while according to the scenario, the project manager is carrying out the Manage Project knowledge process, which is part of the Executing Process Group.

Monitoring stakeholder engagement does not help identify the people or processes needed to establish a knowledge management system for the project, whereas the other options, namely the lessons learned register, the resource breakdown structure, and project team assignments are useful in determining what is required for a knowledge management system. Therefore, of the available choices, monitoring stakeholder engagement would be the least beneficial for establishing a knowledge management system for the project and is, therefore, the best answer to the question asked.

Details for each Option:

Details Option A

A. Reviewing the lesson learned register


The lessons learned register is useful in understanding what is required for a knowledge management system. The lessons learned register might describe processes that were used in the past, along with any associated advantages and issues.


Details Option B

B. Monitoring stakeholder engagement


Monitor Stakeholder Engagement is the process of monitoring stakeholder relationships and tailoring strategies for engaging stakeholders. Carrying out this process alone has little value in identifying people's knowledge or activities used to manage project knowledge.


Details Option C

C. Examining the resource breakdown structure


The resource breakdown structure includes information on the composition of the team and may help understand what knowledge is available as well as what are the knowledge gaps.


Details Option D

D. Studying the project team assignments


Project team assignments help identify the project team members and their assignments on the project, the knowledge that they have, and where there may be potential gaps.

PMP Exam Simulator Features

2,100+ PMP Exam Sample Questions

Yes, you saw that right! Your subscription will give you access to one of the largest sample question pools out there. There are so many that you may never see the same question twice during your studies.

The questions not only cover every formula, Process Group, and Knowledge Area from the A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) and the Agile Practice Guide, they also cover the required knowledge that PMI draws from other reference sources. The content is so varied that the questions will give you an in-depth understanding of what you can expect on your exam day.

Five Complete Exams (1,000 Questions)

The actual PMP exam will require you to answer 200 questions in 4 hours. Your simulator has to test you under the same conditions.

That's why we grouped 1,000 questions into five full-length exams. In this way, you can practice for your real exam under absolutely realistic conditions.

Exam 1-4 are full-length exams following the current exam content outline, and Exam 5 has 210 ITTO-based questions.

This is just like learning to drive a car. The more you do it, the better your chances of passing.

Separate Quiz Pool (1,100 Questions)

Our students told us that they prefer to first study the materials and then do a quick test on what they just learned. They don't want to immediately take a full-length PMP exam.

That's why you'll also have a separate quiz pool with over 1,100 questions intended for focused testing. Now you can first study Project Integration Management, and then test yourself just on this Knowledge Area.

Even better: These 1,100 questions are totally separate from the questions in the five complete exams so you'll see totally new questions in each full exam.

Questions Developed by PMP Team

The questions that PMI uses in the "real" PMP exam are developed by a veritable "army" of PMP certified volunteers from around the world. These volunteers develop questions that meet the standards of the official PMP exam, and each volunteer adds their personal "twist". So you get a lot of variation.

That's what makes the PMP exam so hard and unpredictable.

The questions in our simulator are designed and developed in the same way. We hired a worldwide team of a dozen of PMP credential holders who authored thousands of questions. That way, you can be guaranteed to see a lot of variety in the simulator's questions.

Plus ... 

  • Access countdown only starts when you take the first exam!
  • Access detailed exam reports, explanations and references
  • Exam-like questions, developed by a team of 7 certified Project Managers
  • Timed mode, learning mode and real exam mode
  • Practice exams on your preferred device. Anytime. Anywhere.
  • Certified project managers provide answers to your questions
  • and many more great features ...
