Hi,

I want to study for the exam however I can't find a free PMBOK copy.

I understand that I can either join as a Member (~$160 per year) and download for free or buy a hard copy (~$200).

My problem is that today my function is not 100% PM and my only advantage as a member is to download the book, study, get certified and one day maybe profit more from the membership once I get a position as Project Manager or Program Manager.

Is there anyway to get a copy so I can focus on what's important for me now (study, study, pass)?

Rafael,

The cost of the PMP Exam is $555 for non-members and $405 for members. So as a PMI member you save $150. PMI membership on the other hand is only $139 plus you get a free copy of the PMBOK Guide (PDF). It makes financial sense for you to become a member.

Note that nobody says you have to keep your membership > 1 year...

Rafael,

Glad you are interested in project management and the PMP certification. You will not find a free copy of the PMBOK Guide. However, a less costly alternative is to purchase a physical copy. Amazon sells them used and new for less than $40.

Also keep in mind 2 things:
1. There are minimum requirements to apply for a PMP in terms of the number of months you performed PM activity and hours. These will vary based on your education.
2. There will be an update to the PMBOK guide in less than one year, so the current guide is less costly than normal.
