First of all let me explain why PMI has decided to change the PMP examination Certified Ethical Hacker test. As some you might know already, PMI conducts a role delineation study (RDS) for the Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential every five to seven years to ensure that the credential meets today organizations project manager needs. Over 3,000 PMP credential holders from North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America and the Caribbean regions have participated in recent RDS study and the results reveals that that the professional and social responsibility area should be integrated into all of the work of project management. Therefore, PMI decided to change the PMP examination.
On many blogs, quite a few candidates who want to take the PMP exam after 31 August 2011 have asked a lot of questions about the recent PMP exam changes. They wanted to know mainly more about the examination changes. The article below mentions the expected changes in detail.
What is not changing? – The education and experience eligibility requirements for the existing PMP examination remain appropriate and will not be changed. The PMBOK® Guide Forth Edition is not changing and exam takers can use that as a reference book.
What is changing? – As per PMI, approximately 30% of the PMP exam content will change. Since the Professional and Social Responsibility content area will now be tested in every domain, the proportion of questions from each domain will change. On the exam, thirteen percentages of questions come from project initiation; twenty four percentages of questions come from project planning; thirty percentages of questions come from project execution; twenty five percentages of questions come from monitoring and controlling the projects and eight percentages of questions come from project closing.
