I am willing to take the PMP exam within the next 2-3 months, hopefully by January 2009. I was checking the PMI website and realized that the fourth edition of PMBOK will be released by December 2008. Since I’ll be using the existing materials as a guide for measured areas of knowledge, I’m just wondering on if anybody knows how this will impact the format of the exam if taken on early 2009. Thanks

Hi Dalia,

You may prepare for and appear in the PMP exam based on PMBOK Guide 3rd edition without worrying about any effect of the release of the 4th edition in early 2009.

Even though the new edition of PMBOK guide is supposed to be released on December 31, 2008, the new exam based on this edition is planned to be rolled out only on June 30, 2009.
