40 NEW PMI-CAPM Free Questions and Answers (Part - 2)


This is in continuation of the earlier series of questions for the PMI-CAPM® examination. 

I would definitely suggest that you take both the parts together when you try to attempt the questions. 

Again, do note that these are not verbatim questions from the PMI-CAPM exam, however, these questions cover the areas needed for the exam. The questions are based on the PMBOK Guide, Exam Content Outline and Agile practices associated with the PMBOK guide.

As noted in the earlier post, to answer these questions, you need to have:

  • Good grasp on Knowledge Areas of the PMBOK Guide, 6th edition. 
  • Good grasp of the introductory areas of the PMBOK guide such as Project Life Cycles, Project Environment and Role of Project Manager. 
  • Sound understaning of the Agile practices as per the PMBOK guide.
  • Understanding the content of the ECO. The ECO is a small, barebone document listing the possible (not all) topics/areas to be covered for the CAPM exam.

These questions are referenced from CAPM Live Lessons - Guaranteed PassCAPM 23 Contact Hours and the book, I Want To Be A CAPM.

I hope you enjoy doing these questions and it helps in your preparation for the PMI-CAPM exam.
