The actual test comprises of 200 questions in 4 hours. 25 questions are not scoring, instead they are in a pre-test phase to examine their appropriateness for future use. PMI made a decision in 2006 to no more publish passing scores for its exams. In 2007, PMI also removed all quantitative elements from the post-exam review for test candidates. The actual score is estimated inside a range between 70% and 75%. I recommend targeting ≥75% results in this and other prep tests. Some published tests are simpler, you should try to achieve 82% in those. 2
