  • How does the PMP examination process work?
    • The exam consists of 200 multiple-choice questions that must be completed within four hours. There is no fixed score to pass the PMP exam, as this depends on the difficulty level of the questions assigned.

  • How is the PMP certification different from other comparable certifications?
