I purchased The Project Management PrepCast back in 2010, however I didn't take online test , and of course I didn't get my 35 Contact Hour Certificate.
I understand that PMP exam is now using 5th guidebook, so could anyone please kindly let me know if i can still use my purchased PrepCast (4 yrs ago) and take the final exam to get 35 Contact Hour Certificate?
First of all: Please do NOT watch the old "4th Edition" PrepCast in preparation of the current "5th Edition" PMP Exam. The current exam is quite different and using old materials will only lead to one thing: You will fail your PMP exam. Therefore: Please DELETE your old PrepCast lessons and don't watch them again. With that out of the way, let's take a look at your options:
Receiving 35 contact hours for "old" PrepCast:
Using "old" PrepCast / "old" PMBOK Guide for Exam preparation
As I have stated above... Don't Do It! Do not use "old" materials for the current exam. You have to purchase a "new" PrepCast and also a "new" PMBOK Guide.
Until Next Time,
