How are PMP exam questions weighted?
After passing numerous prep exams, including Rita's, I failed my first real PMP exam. I called PMI, and while they would not use the term, apparently some questions wieighted, are given more credit than others. It used to be a straight 61%, but no more. Here is a quote from an email they sent me:
"Scaled Scoring is not a percentage-based scoring system, that is, the assessment passing point is assigned to a point of difficulty instead of a number or percent of correct responses."
The problem is no one will say anything about what is more or less weighted. I suspect that, for example, not being able to do EV, or Crit Path, or float, will cost you more than not knowing what a fixed fee contract implies.
Does anyone know how PMI actually determines how one has passed or failed?
