Today, March 26, 2018, the Project Management Professional – PMP – certification exam is officially based on the 6th edition of the PMBOK and related content. Any PMP exam prep material based on the 5th edition you are using to study for the PMP exam is technically obsolete. Nevertheless, I would argue that there are a lot of concepts and practices that are still valid. I have been thru PMBOK changes and their corresponding changes from 3rd to 4th to 5th and now to 6th. Yes, there are considerable changes, but not enough to throw out everything you have been studying and learning from up to this point.
Nonetheless, to stay aligned to the latest organization and lexicon it is recommended that you primarily use content exclusively made for 6th edition. You will have more confidence with the content you are learning is what you can expect to see on the exam.
To help update your materials to the 6th edition, The Crowd Training is giving away its 6th edition online interactive PMP Exam prep course for only $66! The list price is $720. That’s over 90% off.
