How to use our CDMP Practice Exam:

This is a 40-question practice exam, replicating the type of questions you’ll find in the CDMP Data Management Fundamentals Exam.

Like the official DAMA CDMP Practice exam, we ask 40 questions that cover the 14 Knowledge Areas of the DMBoK. There is no time limit on this quiz, but if you wish to replicate the real-world conditions, set a timer and give yourself no more than 36 minutes to complete the test.

You should select the correct answer from the 5 options in each question. Like the CDMP Data Management Fundamentals Exam itself, this is OPEN BOOK – you can refer to a copy of the DMBoK during the test to help score more points.

What do my CDMP exam results mean?

This test will grade your answers and give you a score percentage. We follow the same scoring system that DAMA uses:

  • If you score 60% or more, you will be confident of passing the Fundamentals exam and achieving a Certified Data Management Associate grade
  • If you score 70% or more, you’ll be confident of passing the CDMP exam and earning the Practitioner grade
  • If you score 80% or more, you can be confident of earning the Master level designation – although this requires the student also to pass 2 “Specialist exams”

If you’re unsure about the DAMA system, check out this section “what is CDMP certification?

How can I use the results of this CDMP Practice Exam?

Firstly, by taking the exam you’re exposing yourself to questions about the DMBoK. This will help you think more deeply about the content than simply reading the book.

Secondly, you get a feel for the type of question – what will be asked, how are the questions worded, and what are the tricky answers that are there to throw me off the scent?

Finally, you may elect to purchase our “How to Pass the CDMP Fundamentals Exam” report – this will tell you which answers you got right, which you got wrong, what the correct answer is, and why it is the correct answer (with direct references to the DMBoK Chapter and section). This guide will help you focus your study on the areas where you are weakest AND where DAMA gives the highest score. 

Don’t take a chance with the CDMP Fundamentals Exam until you’ve tested your knowledge and have the confidence to pass first time!

How to Pass the CDMP Report

Pass the CDMP Practice Exam
Get your custom guide to CDMP Exam success

Our “How to Pass the CDMP Fundamentals Exam” report is designed to help you pass, first time. 

We take your answers to the questions in this free quiz and break down:

  1. How many you got right for each knowledge area, so you can read the chapters that matter to you
  2. What your answer was, compared to the right answer, so you can see which questions you need more time to understand
  3. Why the answer is correct, referencing the exact Chapter, Section, Page (and sometimes diagram) you need to read to understand the answer

Each section gives a recommendation so you focus your time studying the elements of the DMBoK you’re weakest in, which score the most points in the real exam.

Think of it like your personal, personalised guide to reading the DMBoK and learning the answers you need to succeed.

CDMP Curious

The DAMA Wheel

You’ve probably heard that the CDMP certification will help you open doors and create new career options. You’ve seen the DAMA wheel and you have experience in some of the sections, but now you want to know if you can learn the rest and pass the exam.

Before you do anything else, go and read our Ultimate Guide to Data Management Certification

Now you’ve understood what the options are, let’s look at how you can easily pass the CDMP and get the career you deserve.

Moving from CDMP Curious to CDMP Qualified

  1. Step one – purchase a copy of the DMBOK, if you haven’t got it already (get the e-Book, it’s easier to use for the exam)
  2. Step two – familiarise yourself with the basic concepts and learn how to read the book (focus on the context diagrams for each chapter)
  3. Take our CDMP Practice Exam to determine what score you’d get today (you can refer to the DMBOK whilst answering)
  4. Identify where your weak spots are – which questions did you get wrong, and what do you need to do to pass?
  5. You’ll be offered the chance to purchase your bespoke Cognopia “How to Pass the CDMP Exam” report at the end of the quiz – which will save you time and effort studying irrelevant parts of the DMBOK

We used this technique internally at Cognopia and passed the exam in less than 3 weeks. Stop stalling, start moving towards your dream career.

DMBOK Frustrated

We get it. The DMBOK is 628 pages long. Six Hundred and Twenty Eight! 

The content is as dry as three day old toast, and it’s not exactly intuitive. How do these sections relate to one another again? Which of these acronyms do I really need to learn?

It’s no surprise you’ve given up reading the book, it beats the enthusiasm and energy out of plenty of data management professionals. Who wants to read a textbook the size of a University Course anyway?

At the same time, you want to get the qualification. You’ve spent a lot of money on that book (and possibly on the CDMP exam too), and you feel a bit of a let-down. Let’s change that and put you on a path to success:

Move from DMBOK Frustrated to Fabulous!

  1. Dust off your DMBOK copy and remind yourself of the material
  2. Go and sign up for the actual DAMA CDMP Exam – it costs $311, but the financial commitment will focus your mind 
  3. Take the CDMP practice exams that DAMA provide – 40 questions in 36 minutes – this will help you understand any gaps in your knowledge (and about 10 of these questions will reappear in the final exam anyway)
  4. Focus your study on the areas of the DMBOK where you are weak. If you struggle with Data Quality questions, spend more time reading that Chapter, for example
  5. Now you’re ready for a tougher test – Cognopia’s Free CDMP Practice Exam

Our exam is a more thorough examination – we use the same weighting that DAMA uses in the Fundamental Exam. This will put you through your paces, and expose further gaps in your knowledge.

  • Find out what grade you’re likely to get in the real exam
  • Optional: purchase your bespoke Cognopia “How to Pass the CDMP Exam” report at the end of the quiz – which will tell you exactly what you need to do to get the score you need to succeed

You can take our practice exam multiple times – once you hit your target score you’re ready to take the real exam and get your CDMP certification!

You already know this content, so why aren't you qualified yet?

What will I score in the CDMP Exam?

You’re not going to read the whole DMBOK, it won’t tell you anything you don’t already know. At the same time, you don’t want to pay to sit the exam unless you’re convinced you’ll pass.

You could pay $1,500 or more to get a formal training class to walk you through the content. But that might involve:

  • Throwing money away on a course you don’t want to take
  • Joining online training at inconvenient hours
  • Watching boring online training videos full of theory

Who wants to do that?

Your path to perfection

  1. Take our Free CDMP Practice Exam to see how well you’ll score right now
  2. Purchase your bespoke “How to Pass the CDMP Exam” report, to find out where your remaining weaknesses are
  3. Follow the recommendations in the report to complete your studies
  4. Sign up to our CDMP Academy, so you get bespoke assistance to pass the exam
  5. Lean on over 350 questions in our practice exams until you get the score you need to succeed

That’s it – you’re ready to get your certification and get your new job ASAP!
