For some reason this book was strongly recommended to me.
I purchased it and went through all 1,000 questions.
Some questions were helpful, but maybe 1 or 2 questions in this book actually popped up in my PMP exam.
This book has barely any situational questions and my PMP exam consisted of 70% situational questions!
Do not rely on these 1,000 questions alone to pass the PMP exam!

This package was loaded with questions. Though not all were truly relevant. None the less this was a great study tool.

I had thought that this book covered preparation for the PMP exam based on the PMBOK 5th edition, but it is for the 4th. No matter, most of the questions are the same and it provides you a handy guide.

HASH(0xa0b85498) out of 5 stars Great PMP Prep Tool! Jan. 31 2012
By Ollie - Published on
Format: Paperback
After about two weeks of preparation, I passed the PMP exam. Through that time, I used several sources. I spent a week doing self-study using Jennifer Greene and Andrew Stellman's Head First PMP: A Brain-Friendly Guide to Passing the Project Management Professional Exam. I then went through a week-long prep class. To say I did a lot of practice questions and exams is an understatement. The weekend before the actual exam (I took it on a Monday), I almost exclusively practiced the questions from PMP: Practice Makes Perfect. I must say, this book was a great complement to all the other study material I had. The first section of the book, which consists of some fill-in-the-blanks, true/false, and matching, really helps to assess where one is in terms of knowing the PMBOK material. The full-length practice exams in the book (there's 4 total with slightly over 200 questions in each) very closely resemble the types of questions on the exam. I would say that out of all the many practice exam questions that I went through from a variety of sources, the questions in Practice Makes Perfect, in my opinion, were most similar to the actual exam in terms of level of difficulty, wording, and scope. Knowing the material is obviously the most important thing to passing the test. Next to that, it's extremely important to practice the questions. This book is one of the best resources I had to do the latter.

HASH(0xa0b302e8) out of 5 stars Really good book to prep for your PMP exam May 4 2012

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I think I was one of the 1st people to purchase this book couple of months back. Now that I am done with my exam few months back and putting all my PMP books on Amazon, I decided to write few words only on this book. Because that was one of the books that I wasn't sure to buy or not, and glad I did. The exam is very close to this book. And I did purchase many exam books and online tests. Exam had long questions that was very similar to ones in this book. not to say that others are bad... but this is a really good book to prepare for the PMP exam. Best Wishes with your exam

HASH(0xa0cc769c) out of 5 stars PMP Prep Exam not updated Nov. 3 2013
By JOSE-LUIS COUSINO - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Belongs to the PMbok 4th Edition which makes it obsollete. The existing PMP Exam from PMI is based in the 5th Edition. The worse part is that in your advertising of this book does not say anything. So I assumed that it was the last version. I don't undestand who will purchase a book like this if it is not updated.
Thanks for allowing me to write my comments.

HASH(0xa0b3033c) out of 5 stars very happy with this purchase - believe it will help Sept. 25 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Please note that I am taking the test on Friday, and cannot yet compare this book to the exam. I would like to review this book in light of all the study materials I have worked with. I must say that you NEED to do practice tests, which this book offers. If you are an experienced project manager, you will be tempted to answer many questions on common-sense or best practice in your own environment. You may also not realize what you need to study, because it may seem as if you know something like the back of your hand (say, Quality), but you do not know what the PMP exam expects you to memorize (like the names of people who invented quality techniques). That was me before I started taking practice exams - thinking I really knew this stuff because I do it day in and day out. It was the practice exams and answer keys that helped me with the trick questions, the question formats and answers designed to trip you up, and all the times where common-sense doesn't equal the correct answer.

I had another test preparation book, that had its own exams on CD. While I loved the CD format, their explanations of right and wrong answers didn't come close to PMP Practice Makes Perfect. I also exhausted the questions in an online learning "TestPrep" I had access to, and took several free exams online.

Over time, I kept track of my scores. I was at a steady plateau with scores averaging around 67%, not passing scores I am sure!

Over this week, I have taken a practice exam every night from this book. Both nights, I scored myself, and noted questions where I wanted to read the answers to regardless of my score, as well as any other potential answers. Then, I read the answer key, understanding why my answers were right or wrong. The next day, I took another practice day and my score went up by 13%, from 71% to 84%! I am confident that if I continue testing myself through this last week before the exam, I will be able to pass.

The only question I have is that the practice exams differ significantly from each other. The first one I took had many earned value calculations and critical path analyses. The second one had none. If you buy this book, be sure to take multiple practice tests to get experience with the different types of questions you may encounter.

Another thing to note with the tests is that they do not simulate reality in that the questions are grouped, meaning that you can infer some answers from previous or future questions more easily. I am pretty sure that the real test will not group questions about like topics together. It is helpful however if you only need to test yourself in certain areas.

Overall, taking a test on paper with a paper answer key isn't similar to the experience in the testing center, nor is it easy. I would have given this book 5 stars if the practice exams were included on a DVD. note you can download an answer key on PDF from the book's website if you wish.

Overall, I would say that this book is indispensable especially if you do not have access to other exam practice sessions. But even if you do, this book may have more challenging questions and possibly be more up to date as its whole purpose is to be an accurate exam prep.
