Free Mock PMP Certification Exam Questions

The best way to prepare for the PMP exam is to try out as many mock exam questions as you can. You can read PMP exam prep books but it is all theory, and you will not learn how to apply the concepts learned into real exam questions. So try out as many exam questions, and find out where is the gap in your knowledge.
