Hello Friends,

Has anyone taken BOTH the 5th & 6th edition exams? Was there a shift in certain types of questions (i.e. formula-based, situational, sequential, Monitoring & Closing, Social Responsibility)? Or if you studied for the 5th edition, but were going to the miss the cutoff date, how was the 6th edition exam different than the 5th edition study material?

Look forward to the discussion!!!

I had taken both.

There were couple of questions regarding Agile, and also needs to check on the changes of Closing Process and Control Procurement Process.

I find 6th Edition harder than the 5th. It became more vague.

Just that I believe PrepCast helped me with the right approach on the material and understanding concepts.

Hope this helps.
