Free Project Management Certification Practice Test – Free PMP Exam Questions

The PMI-ACP (Project Management Institute Agile Certified Practitioner) designation is one of the leading certifications globally. The PMI developed it to certify that people are well versed in the Agile Methodology for executing projects. After the PMP (Project Management Professional,) it is one of the most popular and recognized certifications today and well worth obtaining.

PMI’s Project Management Salary Survey – an industry study of 10 countries – predicted that there would be more than 41.5 million project management roles by the year 2020. China and India will lead this growth, generating approximately 8.1 million and 4 million project management roles, respectively.

Recent 2020 PMI Salary Surveys reveal Project Managers with the PMP and PMI-ACP Certifications earn 22% and 28% more, respectively, than non-certified managers.  Hiring managers believe that certified professionals are more efficient workers and enhance the teams they are a part of. Clearly, hiring managers see the benefits of recruiting certified professionals.

Our experienced trainers have studied and worked in their respective fields in the EU, U.S., and worldwide for a minimum of 20 years before joining PMW. Furthermore, their experience covers the gamut from banking to business/finance to the architectural-engineering-construction (AEC) field to manufacturing and production, and more. Their expertise affords them the ability to contour the workshops to their audience, explain the material in the participants’ industry-language, and provide the participants tools they can use in their day-to-day jobs.

Question 1: Halfway through a new dashboard development project, your client requests that you switch from a more traditional project management approach to Agile. However, as part of the original contract, the client had requested that all work is done and submitted – even intermittent prototypes – be thoroughly documented and provided to the client. The next step for you, as a project manager, is to do the following:

  1. Ignore the request for the documentation since the Agile Manifesto states that “working software takes precedence over comprehensive documentation and, since the client requested a change to Agile, you must meet the tenets of the manifesto.
  2. Re-negotiate the contract with the client and their firm.
  3. Inform the client that you cannot change the approach since the contract clearly requests thorough documentation
  4. Change to an Agile approach, as requested by the client, and meet the terms and conditions outlined in the contract.

Question 2: According to the Suitability Assessment Chart, ALL of the following are components of the Team Segment except for:

Question 3: You are an engineer managing a large design and construction job with a predominantly predictive lifestyle. However, the project’s nature, cost, and demand for certain materials, and other factors are making the project more and more challenging regarding scope, schedule, and budget. Your team has suggested you switch to a more Agile approach, and you decide to do as follows:

  1. Thank the team for the suggestion, but remind them that large projects require a more predictive approach, especially in construction.
  2. Renegotiate the contract with the client to revise the original scope, schedule, and budget.
  3. Submit a change request to remove and/or modify parts of the scope to save time and cost.
  4. Try to revise the Agile approach and/ or a hybrid since project size is not considered for using Agile.

Question 4: Due to the nature and size of your local team, you must work with a geographically distributed team and, therefore, decide to create longstanding video conferencing links between the various locations where your team works. This method is known as:

  1. Collocation
  2. Internal teleworking

  4. Intra-office telecommuting
