Question:

How many Maths formulas questions on the PMP Exam?


Answer:

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.
