Current Edition of The PMBOK Guide
PMI released the PMBOK Guide 7th Edition in Aug 2021 but the primary reference for the PMP exam is still 6th Edition. You can click here to find the PMP Exam reference list.
I also sent an email to Project Management Institute (PMI) asking about the primary reference guide for the PMP Exam in 2021. I asked them, "Which is the Primary Reference Guide for PMP Exam Preparation in 2021?"
Following is an excerpt from PMI's reply mail:
"Thank you for contacting the Project Management Institute.
We have received your query regarding the PMBOK guide.
We kindly need to inform you that the primary reference that you should refer back to for PMBOK guide is the 6th edition."
The PMP ITTO Learning Tools are based on the PMBOK Guide 6th Edition.
Why Are ITTO Annoying And Frustrating?
PMBOK Guide 6th edition is a huge book. It has close to 1000 pages.
There are more than 1000 ITTO across 49 processes.
It is next to impossible to memorize the ITTO.
Learning ITTO is an annoying and serious problem. But, like many other things in life, you have to overcome it.
Can you pass the CAPM / PMP exam without learning ITTO?
No! Learning ITTO is a necessary evil.
Hey! I am Praveen Malik.
I passed my PMP exam in the year 2005. In those days the PMBOK Guide was much thinner. It was about the one-fourth the size of today's version. The number of processes and ITTO were much less.
In 2005, I had many anxious moments while preparing for the PMP Exam. I just could not memorize the ITTO but I still passed the exam with flying colors.
How did I pass? I found some unique ways to learn and understand the ITTO.
