    Hello, Lyn:
    I found these numbers on a PMP Exam Simulation site.
    They seem “reasonable” to me.
    I wonder . . . could these numbers have come from PMI?
    Why or why not?
    Regards,
    James

    They could be right – but PMI rarely posted actual numbers about passing it, so my feeling is they would not provide this information either.

    But maybe……

    The target is 65-75% correct. If that is actually true, it seems like the exam is broken. What industry wants to have a certification exam that is so hard to pass that it begins to be a matter of luck as well as ability?
    Of course, I’d like to know whether this is true.
