Hello,

I have exam scheduled for October, now that new PMBOK v7 is out, can you please give guidance which PMBOK needs to be used for preparation for the PMP exam as I still see references to PMBOK v 6 only.

PMBOK 6.

The current exam took over 18 months to develop and implement and has been active now for only about 19 months. I would not expect a change in the exam until 2023 at the earliest.

The PMBOK is an ANSI Standard. They are required to be reviewed and updated on a periodic basis by the host organization. That it was revised was a normal event. A re-alignment of the PMP exam will be a large undertaking of PMI and probably take well over a year to accomplish. Until PMI states the test is re-aligned, don't worry about it.
