Will this course prepare me for the new PMI PMP exam launching January 2, 2021?
The new PMI PMP exam beginning in January, is based on the 6th edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) Guide which our course is also based on. The new PMP exam will have a larger focus on agile practices of which, 50% of the exam will be agile based. Our course does cover agile concepts, however, not to the degree covered in the new exam so additional study time on agile may needed outside this course. In addition to changes in content focus, the new exam question types are also changing. Instead of just multiple-choice questions there will be additional question types such as matching and fill-in-the-blank.
