Rita Mulcahy's Original Exam Prep ™

What You Need to Know about Upcoming Changes to Rita Mulcahy’s™ PMP® Exam Prep Book

It’s that time again. The Project Management Institute® (PMI) has updated their book A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). This occurs every four years. It’s PMI’s way of keeping the book current with today’s project management practices.

For RMC it means that all of our books, software, and classes have to be revised to stay in alignment with the PMBOK® Guide-Sixth Edition. It also provides us with the opportunity to make other changes to our products and courses so we can deliver the best possible learning experiences. And we are hard at it.

RMC’s flagship product, Rita Mulcahy’s™ PMP® Exam Prep book, is currently undergoing extensive changes. Many are driven by updates found within the PMBOK® Guide-Sixth Edition, while others are made to improve the learning experience and incorporate feedback from our readers and students. We also utilize in-house knowledge gained after the publication of the Eighth edition.

For example, the PMBOK® Guide-Sixth Edition has expanded the Integration Management to include a new “Project Integration Management” process called “Manage Project Knowledge” and provides for the creation of a lessons learned register. To support this our book gives more attention to these new tasks. This is consistent with what RMC has always taught in our courses and described in our products. Our latest work contains new content about the management of project knowledge in our Integration Management chapter.

The expansion of Risk Management in the new PMBOK® Guide-Sixth Edition includes the “Implement Risk Responses” process to clarify confusion that many project managers have regarding the time when risk response implementation should occur. We’ve updated our risk content in the new edition of PMP® Exam Prep to include and interpret this process.

We’ve also interpreted the changes to the Quality Management process along with the tools and techniques of all quality processes contained in the PMBOK® Guide-Sixth Edition. We added more content to expand our Quality Management chapter.

We’ve changed Human Resource Management to Resource Management. This chapter will now include content about all types of resources, and will reflect the need for project managers to acquire all resources necessary to complete a project, not just team members. We’ve also added content that describes the process of controlling resources.

In addition to our book, we are also making substantial changes to our other PMP® exam prep products. Our bestselling PM FASTrack® Exam Simulation Software will include new and enhanced situational questions. Our flashcards for passing the PMP® exam, Hot Topics will be aligned with our upcoming edition of Rita Mulcahy’s™ PMP® Exam Prep book. Our PMP® Exam Prep eLearning Course along with all of our Instructor-Led PMP® Exam Prep Courses are being completely updated to not only reflect current project management practices, but will have new enhancements to improve the user’s learning experience.

Look for our updated PMP® Exam Prep System that includes our book, exam simulation software, and flashcards at the end of this year. This system should be used to study for the updated PMP® exam that is scheduled to be released March 26, 2018. In the meantime, our eighth edition PMP® materials that are aligned with the PMBOK® Guide–Fifth Edition should still be your best resources to study for and pass the current PMP® exam. Please visit our website for the most current information on our product and class updates and release dates.

        Hi, I purchased the 8th edition from a RMC supplier in Brazil in Dec 2017 and have read that RMC would give discounts on the 9th edition. I live in Germany now and the shipping alone from RMC web will cost 60usd. How can I purchase the English version of this book in Germany and if possible with discount.

    How about the revised CAPM book aligned with the 6th edition PMBOK?

  5. Hello,

    I have Rita’s PMP Exam Prep 8th edition with 2013 copy right. But I saw the 8th edition has been updated in Aug 2015. Is there sufficient updates between the two? I am planning to take PMP exam before March 26th. Which version should I use. Please advice.

  6. Hello, does Rita’s new edition fully align with the 6th edition of the PMBK, especially re: agile practices?

    • Our PMP Exam Prep V9 fully aligns with PMBOK V6. And is designed to incorporate the concepts from PMBOK V6 to prepare you to pass the exam. It is important to note that the PMP exam is not a test on the PMBOK or the Agile Practice Guide. While the PMBOK does address “Considerations for Agile/Adaptive Environments” for each knowledge area, it is used to illustrate how the PM should be tailoring their project to the development approach and the project life cycle. The Rita’s PMP Exam Prep book V9 focuses preparation to understand the work of leading and managing projects and how the PM should be thinking about the processes to be able to tailor and adapt them for applying to situations on the exam including Agile.

  7. What do you advice me to buy if I want to take the CAPM exam in April 2018?

    • If you’re using RMC you should use our current study and elearning products and take the exam before May 21st as that is when it’ll change.

    I reside in the UK and looking to get Rita’s 9th edition pmp exam prep to be able to sit for thr exam in May. I’ve searched amazon and so many other online stores but can’t seem to find it. The cost estimate of shipping to the UK on here if I preordered is pretty much same as the book if not more.
    Is there any alternative? A soft copy maybe?

  9. Is there any place in Dubai where I can buy the 9th edition book?
