Hello saket,
1 ) I heard that the PMP questions are very lengthy about 2 to 3 lines / question and the answer choices for each question is also 2 to 3 lines ,
so we have a very lenghtly question and answer to read .
if the above is true, then I 2 to 3 minutes to read, process it and analyze and my exam could end even before I attempt all the questions , kindly advise how to tackle this problem,
2)how close are the mock exams posted in iZenBrisge to the real pmp exam, I mean the length and questioning style .

3) I started giving individual chapter assessments after doing 2 revisions on PMBOK , but I only scored 70% in Integration and 60% in scope, even after 2 revisions, and I feel very discouraged to proceed further, does this mean i'Il need another revision or I should continue with chapter assessments and do the mock ?

Regards, Vandita

You can say 60% questions are of 3 lines and options may have one line only and 40% may be of one liner also. So in general good mix, Yes you need to manage time. How? When you understand the project management well you will start getting what question is asking and will be able to identify topic and options just by seeing it, not even many time reading it. This happen when you develop familiarity with key words and also by doing practice you know what is noise and what is the main question.

I have seen people with Average English reading speed doing good in exam once they develop good grip on the concepts, second is you practice time management towards the later stage of your preparation.
2)how close are the mock exams posted in iZenBrisge to the real pmp exam, I mean the length and questioning style .
Our MOCKs , Mock 1, 2 and 3 are based on PMI's sample to us about the PMP exam questions, so they are expected to represent the smililar patter and complexity with the real exam, the exam keeps changing every month but we can fairly say these mocks works as good way to know how ready are you for exam.
3) I started giving individual chapter assessments after doing 2 revisions on PMBOK , but I only scored 70% in Integration and 60% in scope, even after 2 revisions, and I feel very discouraged to proceed further, does this mean i'Il need another revision or I should continue with chapter assessments and do the mock ?
The answer depend on type of things which are going wrong, if the questions were more focused on understanding the PMBOK than you can ignore since that is not that much important, but if you are missing the recognition of concept itself that you need to fix thegap. 70% is good number , at the same time it all depend on what is the remaining 30% and why it is wrong. for example in schedule space we have lots of numericals , if the numericals are not coming right you can ignore and move forward.

The answer is the choice you make based on what are the other options, its not a descriptive exam its a exam where you select choice. so what is the choice.
As I see this choice has nice words like facilitaiton so it looks good to go. You may want to understand why options are not marked as right.

Good Morning Saket,
I have watched karthik's interview,
at 16:30 min he mentions about a specific style of question that the PMI asks to confuse the test taker, PM trying to prioritize a product backlog, Im confused as what the question could have been ? can you please share any examples of what the possible question could have been ?

No Specific rule, you need to pick the one which stakeholder finds suitable, once picked you add it in your development approach (as a part of Project Management Plan)
So don't try to find a reason to select one over the other, you may get a definition kind of question where one approach has been defined and the question is asking you to identify the same.

always respect roles be it Scrum or Team, mean something which should be done by Scrum Master or PO and option says it can happen, you support the SM and PO doing it rather you do it.

Same if scrum role try to do something in non scrum team, you also remind them on Team Agreements , I have made video on same, will share the link .
