Hey everyone,

First of all, apologies for the current long delay in answering all your questions. PMI and our company are undergoing a MAJOR shift in PMP exam preparation, so my focus as the president of the company is completely absorbed with those changes. I'll be responding to the questions separately, but wanted to first give you this text here, which we posted on our website only yesterday:


Additional PMI and PMP Exam Prep Update

PMI is going through a considerable transformation. They are changing their long-standing Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) program to a new Authorized Training Partner (ATP) arrangement. We have recently been approved as an ATP. This means, that we will be using the new, PMI-developed PMP exam prep training materials to help students prepare for the "new" exam starting. Our first training for this is tentatively scheduled to begin in November 2020. As a PMI ATP we are no longer allowed to offer recorded training. Instead, the format of the new training must be live instruction. In our case we will offer virtual sessions with a live instructor in a 5-day class as required by PMI. When our plans firm up, we will be announcing these details on our website and newsletters. We don't have pricing or other details for November 2020, but given the new format, it will most certainly be at a much higher price point than The PM Prepcast offering (US$229).

If you are interested in the November 2020 live virtual training course details, please join our PMP exam tips newsletter at www.project-management-prepcast.com/free/pmp-exam-newsletter , and you'll be automatically informed when class registration opens up.

Until December 31, 2020, The PM Prepcast offers quality training and good value. The 35 contact hours from the PM Prepcast do not expire. The PMBOK Guide Sixth Edition is still a valid reference to prepare for the exam. As an ATP, we have access to a set of "clone" questions from the REAL PMP exam in Jan 2021. These questions would be very similar to real PMP Jan 2021 exam questions, and these questions still list PMBOK Guide Sixth edition references.

However, as mentioned above, The PM PrepCast only covers approx. 85% of the new exam content. For example, lessons that describe the current exam content outline would be irrelevant. One should instead read & study the latest exam content outline very closely. About half of the new exam will represent predictive project management approaches, and the other half will represent agile or hybrid approaches. So, reading the Agile Practice Guide and other agile resources is very important.

Our current recommendation is this: If you are planning to take your exam in 2021 but want to begin immediately, then The PM PrepCast is still a solid approach. PMI will accept the 35 contact hours earned in 2020 for the 2021 exam. So start now to have adequate time to absorb information and study at a reasonable, less intense pace. Then, once it is available use the new version of The PM Exam Simulator (PMP 6.1) and practice to see if there are gaps in my understanding that you may need to cover using other resources.

Hi everyone,

I'm a PMP candidate targeting to sit for exam in October 2020. I've been studying during the entire lockdown period; however, my overall mock test & quiz score is still at average 65%.
I am hoping to find an online study partner (given the current situation) to brush up on what's lacking behind which I can't seem to figure out.
I hope there are takers. Interested candidates can always give me a PM to work out on a communication platform.
Many thanks in advance!
