Blogger Geoff Crane reports that, after twenty years of managing projects, he’s finally decided to take the PMP exam. This was at least partially prompted by the news that August 30 will be the last day you’ll be able to take the exam under the current formulation. Beginning on August 31, there will be a new mix of questions, featuring ethics and responsibility more evenly distributed throughout the exam. Of course, there are a few other people who had the same idea, so he only got a slot to take the exam before then when someone cancelled. The next available slots are in September.
The exam is still based on the 4th edition of the PMBOK – only the mix of questions have changed.
