  1. Will there is any change in Question pattern if some one is appearing in exam between 1st-jan-2012 to 30-Jul-2013

  2. there won't be any change in question pattern during the period you have mentioned. PMBOK 5th ed. is released 6-7 months in advance so that the same is absorbed by the profession and the industry first before any certification/test can happen.

  3. Dear Sir,

    The blog is dead? Not updating regularly...

    1. I think dormant is the right word, and it can erupt any time :) Watch out ...

  4. Do you know if PrepCast will be updated for the 5th edition or not?

    1. Hi Vahid,

      Yes, it will be updated in June 2013.

      Hope that helps.

  5. Wow thanks for the info! As a 3 year industry veteran, I figured it was about time for me to advance my career opportunities and earn more money. Obtaining a PMP certification was my way of making myself more marketable in the project management industry. I enrolled in some PMP classes to get me started.
