Hi Cheung:

Have you checked out PMI's website? There is a section on what has changed with the exam. Here is a Brainshark link provided by PMI on the Exam Changes: 2015 PMP Exam Change Explained.

Also, here is the link to the exam guide: www.pmi.org/~/media/PDF/Certifications/p...on-exam-outline.ashx

Lastly, from the PMI site:
The domains remain the same, however; 8 tasks have been added.

Here’s an overview of the newly added content:

Domain 1: Initiating the Project : 3 tasks added – task 2, task 7, task 8
Domain 2: Planning the Project : 1 task added – task 13
Domain 3: Executing the Project : 2 tasks added – task 6, task 7
Domain 4: Monitoring and controlling the project : 2 tasks added – task 6, task 7
Domain 5 : Closing the project : No new tasks added

Hope this helps.

Is the content that you have listed in section L30 part of the PMP exam?

Thank You Sir!

Kevin,

Yes. The content that we have developed for these new lessons is new content that PMI has added to The PMP Examination Content Outline. So PMI can and will ask questions about these topics on the PMP exam.

And -- without trying to sound snippish -- we would not have developed these lessons if they weren't on the exam... they were an enormous amount of work to create :lol:

So I've had my subscription for a while but getting serious about the exam now. I have gone through the prepcast once before but will review again.
Is it safe to assume all the videos/lessons in the prepcast reflect the latest changes ? (if there are any changes in existing topics?)
I understand the new tasks being added but wasn't sure if existing material has been updated or not?

thanks

curious, would the existing lessons in the PrepCast be updated? such as Project Charter based on new changes?

I have been using the prepcast together with other recommended materials for some time - I had been distracted by work schedules, so it has taken me a lot longer than most to prepare.

Firstly I must say a big thank you for prepcast which has become the core material for me as I prepare for my PMP exam. No matter what I read, I always find myself falling back on Prepcast for the most comprehensive understanding of material (well we will see - I haven't taken the exam yet ) :)

The new material is every bit as well reasoned and presented, so again thank you to Cornelius and the prepcast team.

The changes that PMI introduced with the new exam content outline do not require us to change the existing lessons. The changes are on a very high level (i.e. 25,000 foot) and these changes do not go down into the details.

Hi Everyone, Cornelius,

It might be a good thing to stick this post to the top as it is new content not discuss in the PMBOK 5th edition.
I was looking for the info and the post went up as someone reply.

Or does an admin could simply do a new one like :

From PMI website :

The domains remain the same, however; 8 tasks have been added.

Here’s an overview of the newly added content:

Domain 1: Initiating the Project : 3 tasks added – task 2, task 7, task 8
Domain 2: Planning the Project : 1 task added – task 13
Domain 3: Executing the Project : 2 tasks added – task 6, task 7
Domain 4: Monitoring and controlling the project : 2 tasks added – task 6, task 7
Domain 5 : Closing the project : No new tasks added

Videos related : ( Cornelius quoted )

L01.10 Benefits realization
L01.11 Peer-review processes
L04.07 Knowledge management
L07.07 Project finance principles
L08.05 Customer satisfaction metrics
L12.05 Vendor management techniques
L12.06 Contract management techniques
L30.01 Business acumen
L30.02 Situational Project Management
L30.03 Coaching, Mentoring, Training & Motivation
L30.04 Emotional Intelligence
L30.05 Generational Sensitivity and diversity
L30.06 Lessons learned management techniques
L30.07 Meeting management techniques
L30.08 Applicable laws and regulations

Hope i don't offense anyone by asking this.

Cheers,

Noreddine.

Hi,

I am new here. I want to know about the Prep Cast Elite which is offered in 230 $. It is said that it includes 90 days access to exams. I am not able to understand that what does it mean? When i register and get all the videos and start preparing myself for the exam, my 90 days time for exams will start from where? The day i logged in to your service and start preparing myself or the day i give my first exam of 9 exams with 1800 questions ??

Please guide me.

Thank you.

Hi Muhammad: When I originally purchased my PrepCast bundle I had the same concern. Here is a snippet from my original email order:

"Your 90-day access will be activated once you log in and start your first exam/quiz. Until then the simulator is waiting for you and the clock does not start. "

That was indeed the case. Good luck with your studies.
