Official CMP Practice Examinations
The practice exams will give those considering the CMP certification an understanding of how the actual exam questions are structured. These are real questions previously on the CMP exam and have now been retired. This is the only place you can find real CMP practice questions.
Candidates have a choice of two exams: One with 20 questions – 2 for each of the 10 Domains in the CMP International Standards (CMP-IS) and one with 40 questions – 4 in each Domain). The 40-question exam includes the same questions as the 20-question exam as well as 20 new questions.
CIC encourages you to take the 40-question exam before you start studying for the CMP. The results of this test will help you determine the Domains on which you’ll need to concentrate. Then, before taking the exam, take the 20-question exam to measure your improvement.
As you proceed through the practice exam, you can check whether you have answered a question correctly by selecting "Show Answer" button in the right-hand corner of the screen. At the end of the exam, you will be given an assessment of how you performed on each of the 10 Domains.
