The New Domains and the PMP Exam:

  • PROCESS: (50%)
    • reinforcing the technical aspects of successfully managing projects
    • highlighting the connection between projects and organizational strategy

  • 180 questions (the previous exam was 200), but the same number of questions will be scored
  • 230 minutes to complete the exam
  • One additional break for a total of two 10-minute breaks for computer-based tests. No scheduled breaks for paper-based exams.
  • Questions will be a combination of multiple-choice, multiple responses, matching, hotspot and limited fill-in-the-blank
