How many Maths formulas questions on the PMP Exam?
In additional to the ITTO questions, PMP Maths formulas questions are generally considered to be the more difficult questions.
In my PMP Exam question set, I got around 10 PMP calculation questions in total (that is around 5% of all the questions). 5% is definitely not a significant number of questions for the PMP Exam which has 200 questions.
If you are not comfortable with the PMP Maths questions, it is advisable to just guess the answer, flag it for review and move on to the next question. Don’t spend more than the allocated time (around 2 minutes for each question) to the PMP calculation questions as the Maths questions carry equal marks with other PMP questions. When you still have time at the end of the PMP Exam, you may spend more time with the Maths questions.
Plus, it is highly advisable to write down all the PMP formulas at the beginning of the PMP Exam as your PMP Exam brain dump in order to offload your brain.
