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.

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 to get me started.
