Hello All,

My name is Yash Joshi and I am planning to take my PMP exam 3rd week of April 2016. This is my second attempt(1st attempt was June 2015).Any information on how the exam content is different from the previous would be greatly appreciated. I have gone through Rita's book twice and currently going through Prepcasts exam simulator. Is there any other study material required to pass the exam?

Thanks in advance..

Hi there Yash!

The exam content has changed since the PMBOK update this past January, so be sure to use the most up-to-date study material. Now, none of the changes are monumental, but there are 8 new tasks to look out for. Here's a great link that summarizes these changes: https://www.project-management-prepcast.com/free/pmp-exam/articles/695-the-pmp-exam-changes-after-11-january-2016-here-s-what-this-means-for-you

Best of luck in studying for your exam!
