Hello Team,
I did say for the exams on 23rd dec but couldn't cleared the exams.
My approach to the PMP was self study pace and introduced to the prepcast for mock exams which I feel were similar to the actual exams.
I am n dilema now how to move for the revised revision of PMP exams
Need expert advise for the same,what should be the strategy to move on.
Suggestions are most welcome.
Thank you
Ajay bhan

I'm sorry to hear that. Have you read this article: www.project-management-prepcast.com/failed-pmp-exam
Then I would (personally) consider studying again for the new exam in 2021.

I too failed my first attempt in December.
I am now looking to prepare for the new exam. I have few questions below. Can someone please guide me in my next step towards achieving my PMP
1. Should I just continue reading PMBOK guide 6 ?
2. Since the PMBOK 7 is still not released. what is the new exam based on?
3. I know that the 35 contact hours are still valid. Should I take the training course on new exam?

Please advise...I am not finding next steps

Regards,
Smita Patil

Hi Smita,

sorry to hear you failed your first attempt.
My understanding is that the PMBOK Guide Ver. 6 is still valid for your exam - provided that you follow the 2021 exam content outline. My understanding is that the main concepts discussed in the PMBOK remain valid, while their organization and the way they are presented has slightly changed.

Indeed the 35 contact hours are still valid. I cannot say whether you need to take a training course on the new exam; depending on how you feel, it may give you further confidence. To this aim, I recently found out that the PMI is working to provide all candidates with free access to an online course that bridges the knowledge required for the new version of the exam. Here you will find additional details about it: www.pmi.org/learning/training-developmen...hybrid-online-course

Hope this helps,

Gabriella

Awesome! Congrats Ashley. How did you feel about the new exam? I'm also learning to take on the exam in early Feb. In principle, people said the new content would be different but manageable, however, i have no clue how it is in reality :)) It would be super nice if you can share some tips or lesson learnt when sitting for the new exam.

Thank you a million!

Congrats Ashley! I am part of a study group with that we started on this forum. We are meeting virtually every Wednesday evening from 6PM-8PM EST. During our meeting we are taking exams questions as an group starting with the Integration Process group. We are working to an 10 week plan , which will get us through all of the process groups and we are mixing some chapters from the Agile practice guide in there with our studies as well with extreme focus on Scrum as well. Can you share some information on how you prepared for your success to pass the new exam? What resources did you use? Majority of us have the Rita's 9th edition book, PMBOK 6th edition, and the Agile Practice guide. Anything that you can share to help us prepare will be greatly appreciated.

Anahita:

The 2021 exam is still based on PMBOK 6, so all of processes and knowledge groups will be the same. While PMI has stated that there will be more Agile-related questions on the 2021 exam, I have not seen too many reviews on the Forum boards with respect tot he next exam and new format.

Take a look at PMI's information on the new exam format. It looks like the text is much more interactive now, with questions like arranging processes, multiple answers and the old-style pick the right answer.

Good luck.

Harry
