I've recently completed a 3-day Foundation course. The course was great, a bit of information overload towards the beginning, but otherwise I couldn't fault the course or the trainer.

Despite being given past papers to work on in the evenings, the first five questions that came up weren't like anything that was on any of the previous test questions I'd looked at quite & consequently I found sorting the answers out a bit painful.

Then I noticed that the next five questions were'nt there, the next page started at 11. In fact every other set of five were mssing in everyone's papers Shocked

The trainer made a phone call & told us that we were being marked out of 40, knocked a bit of time off & thankfully we all got more than 20, the pass mark.

Ironically the answer to one of the last quesions was "Configuration Librarian". Smile

There were some choice comments on the course feedback forms Laughing

I scored 39/40 btw Very Happy

Roll on te practitoner's bit, I'll do that sometime in November.

Hi Navyday

First at all congrats. for your success in passing the foundation.

Do you have by any chance a list of the questions you were asked for?

I'm trying to do self study for the foundation, but I only have this huge Prince2 manual more than 400 pages and I do not where to focust my study time.

Is terrible because I think to get the foundation should not be extremly hard if you know what to study. But this is my problem (and think there is more people out there like that) I do not what to study.

Any hint will be very much appreciated.

Thanks for reading this and good louck with the practicioner.

Regards

Suzana

Hi,
You are not allowed to use / distribute APMG sample papers without permission. If you are booking through an Accredited Training Organisation (ATO) like AFA or through APMG you will receive sample papers. If you would like more samples the new 'Passing the PRINCE2 Examinations' book has just been released with new Practitioner question samples inside.

It looks quite useful

Hello WavyDavy, Congratulations on your success.
