Hi.

I have taken the 35 contact hours certificate in April 2013 with course content of PMBOK 4.

I know that PMP Exam upto July 29th 2013 is with PMBOK 4th edition

I did not clear my PMP in the first attempt. in May 3013.

I plan to reappear for the PMP exam after July 31st 2013. I understand the PMP course content are then changing and the new PMBOK 5th edition is released. I have 3 questions here:

1. Is my 35 contact hour certificate valid for the new revised PMP exam after July 31st?

2. Where can I get the PMBOK 5 copy?

3. Will you share with me the PMPrepcast for new revised PMP (PMBOK 5th edition)

Thanks,
Arti

Hello Arti,

Here are my answers for you:
1. Is my 35 contact hour certificate valid for the new revised PMP exam after July 31st?
>> Yes. Contact Hours never expire. So your certificate is still valid

2. Where can I get the PMBOK 5 copy?
>> You can find this in most bookstores or at Amazon www.pm-prepcast.com/pmbok - if you are a PMI member, then you can log in to your account at www.pmi.org and download a free (and legal) PDF copy.

3. Will you share with me the PMPrepcast for new revised PMP (PMBOK 5th edition)

Suresh,

Contact Hours NEVER expire. Therefore, the 35 contact hours that you earned already are still valid. You can apply without needing to earn "new" contact hours.
