It would be an advantage on the part of the Prince2 certification aspirant to receive training before taking the exam, either trainer-led (classroom) or through computer-based training (CBT).This will not only give them a chance to study in detail the concepts and processes behind Prince2, but this will also help them assess their readiness in taking the exam. How? By taking online examinations, enrollees of Prince2 training can determine how it feels like to be at the hot seat, answering from average to tough questions within a specific time frame.
This is usually the technique of most training programs with students that are up for certification. Conducting of exams, usually online, will give students an edge over other Prince2 aspirants. This is because exam questions taken during the training happen to be the same questions given from past exams. Though there is no assurance that these past questions will be included again on the next exam, students can still try to answer them for self-assessment.
Prince2 candidates can choose between Foundation and Practitioner level exams. The Prince2 Foundation certification exam consists of 75 multiple choice questions, wherein the candidate should at least get a 50% mark or more to pass. The Prince2 Practitioner exam, on the other hand, consist of 3 questions, each is worth 50 marks. Candidates must get 75 out of 150 to pass the exam. These 3 questions are typical scenario background type that is suited for people to lead projects within the organization. Candidates should complete the exams within 3 hours. It is a good thing though that they can browse through the pages of their paper-based reference manual to help them in answering questions.
