Starting 19-Nov-2021 PMI began using the PMBOK Guide 7th edition as one of the ten reference books for the PMP exam. This means that you will begin seeing questions on the exam that reference this latest version. However, it will take months until a substantial number of these questions have been developed, tested and added to the PMP exam. In other words, there will only be a few questions at first with more and more being added over time. This is an ongoing process where PMI will "trickle" these new questions into the exam whenever they are ready.

We are taking exactly the same approach for The PMP Exam Simulator. We are currently developing and testing new questions that reference the PMBOK Guide 7th edition and will be adding those to the simulator question pool over time. There is no single release date for these questions. Instead, we will add them to the simulator in batches over the coming months, just like PMI is adding their new questions to the real PMP exam in batches as well.

Because PMI is releasing these questions over time, it also means that exam takers are now encouraged to study BOTH the PMBOK Guide 6th edition as well as PMBOK Guide 7th edition as they prepare to take the exam.

Lastly, please note that we will not be announcing release dates of when we will be adding our new questions to the simulator, and that the simulator does not give you the option to "show me only PMBOK 7 questions".
Until Next Time,

I disagree with you because as long as ECO exam content outline is not changed, pmi shall not introduce pmbok 7 as per rule.

But if at all they do let them inform officially.

Otherwise it shall be unethical.

Pritam, they have informed officially: www.pmi.org/certifications/project-manag...n/pmp-reference-list
There is no rule about what materials can or cannot be included as learning material to underpin what is in the ECO. PMI can decided whatever they like, it's their exam!
