Passing the Examination
Once your application is approved, PMI will send you a letter with a confirmation code, which you'll then provide to a Prometric testing center. Be advised that these Prometric testing centers aren't the same cozy testing centers where you took your Microsoft and CompTIA exams. These centers are secured environments where you'll check-in with two pieces of valid ID, stash your belongings in a locker (where they'll remain until you're ready to leave), and take your exam in a proctored room. In addition, you'll be monitored by more than one video camera in the testing environment. (You'd better comb your hair and sit up straight.)
The PMP exam consists of 200 questions and must be completed within four hours. Ready for a twist? Of the 200 questions only 175 actually count towards your grade. The 25-mystery questions are seeded throughout the exam to determine their overall worthiness for future PMP examinations. Can you say "guinea pig?"
