SAP PM (EAM) QuestionsHere you will find sample SAP PM questions and mock tests for SAP PM certification (also known as SAP EAM certification) that are relatively similar to the original exam. You should definitely use them during preparation for the certification, because it will help you to familiarize yourself with the exam format, test your knowledge, identify areas that require additional attention, and sometimes these sample questions are just a little bit similar to what you might encounter at the real exam.

SAP PM vs SAP EAM Certification

It is a little bit confusing but the certification for SAP PM (Plant Maintenance) module is officially called not SAP PM certification but SAP EAM certification. Don’t be confused by this when booking your exam at the official SAP website or through PearsonVUE.

SAP PM Certification Questions

Before you read these sample questions, it is necessary to make one thing crystal clear: there is absolutely no way to get SAP PM questions that will appear at the actual certification. There are several reasons why it is not possible. First, no one has access to the bank of the certification questions because they are kept in the utmost secrecy. Second, the pool of questions that SAP has is so large that, even if someone could extract some questions from the secret database, the probability of getting these SAP PM questions at the exam is extremely low because the questions are randomly selected by a computer. Therefore, do not believe the people who try to sell you SAP PM questions and promise that after studying them you will definitely pass SAP PM (EAM) certification.

During SAP PM certification you will be required to answer 80 multiple choice questions. There is no negative marking for incorrect answers. It means that you should try to answer as many questions as possible even if you are not sure what is the correct answer. You will be given 180 minutes to complete the certification. The current passing score for SAP PM certification is around 60%.
