Help! I am about to start studying for the PMP exam (want to start asap). I won't sit the exam until after the exam changes in March, is there any point buying PrepCast yet or should I wait until Feb new materials/podcast release? Thanks

If you already know that you will NOT be taking the exam on/before 25-March-2018 then that means you need to study using materials that are based on PMBOK 6. Do NOT buy and use materials that are based on PMBOK 5 because you will be studying the WRONG material.

My recommendation: Buy PMBOK 6 and read it, while you wait for the Sixth Edition materials to become available.

Please be aware that there is a difference in cost for the new versions as described here
Until Next Time,
