In September of 2017, the Project Management Institute (PMI) published the Sixth Edition of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide). In addition, PMI updated the PMP® exam on March 26, 2018. Corresponding with this exam change date, we have developed, and continue to develop, updates to our PMP® exam prep products, classes, and eLearning courses.
Those taking the updated exam (after March 26) should only use materials based on the latest PMBOK® Guide. More information can be found here and lower on this page:
