I was wondering when the 5th version would be out. Thanks for the update and good work with your volunteer contributions. On another note, I'm studying for the PMI-ACP using your book and find it the best reference. When I'm done, I'll make sure to give it a 5 star review on Amazon. Good job!

Hi Don,

Thanks for dropping by and thanks very much for the book feedback, it's great to hear you are enjoying it.



I was wondering if anyone can help me out here. I took a training on PMBOK v4 to complete 35 hours that is required for appearing in the PMP exam. I am in the middle of my PMP exam preparation and I do not think I will be ready before January to take an exam. Once the new book is out, does this mean I will have to retake the PMP 35 hours training again? Or previous 35 hours are going to be okay to appear in exam after the new book comes out?



Hi Hassan,

That is a good question, but you will be fine. There is always a generous transition period for the many people like yourself who are part way through their preparations for the exam. I am not sure of the exact period, but believe you will get a 6-9 month window to take the exam based on the PMBOK v4 Guide, if you wish. Also, the training you took will still be valid, there is no requirement to redo contact hours of training when the PMBOK Guide gets updated since 80+% of the guide is similar.

So, keep at it and good luck with your exam when you come to take it.


Great. Thanks Mike.

Hi Mike,
I got your PM-ACP book. With these changes, do you plan to revise your book as well? Or you think it is OK the way it is now.

Hi Phocas,

The PMI-ACP exam does not refer to the PMBOK Guide so changes to the PMBOK will not effect your study. The version you have is good.

Best regards
