PMI have released a nifty new tool to help candidates for any of the PMI Credentials including CAPM, PMP, PgMP and PMI-SP, determine which of the PMI standards to use for their exam preparation based on the planned date for sitting the exam.
All credential exams reference the PMBOK® Guide to some extent, and PgMP candidates also need to study The Standard for Program Management
Which Edition Do I Study? is an interactive web-based tool that allows the user to select:
1. the exam they are taking;
2. the date they plan on taking the exam and
3. receive a personalised study recommendation

As far as we can tell, PMI are still on track for the release of all four standards by the end of 2008, including PMBOK® Guide 4th Edition, and ‘second editions’ of The Standard for Portfolio Management, The Standard for Program Management and the OPM3 Knowledge Foundation.
For more on the changes see our earlier blogs:

One of the big jobs in our schedule for the first part of 2009 is the progressive updating of our courses to work in with the changes to the exams….. this is not too hard for our classroom courses but will require careful management with our Mentored Email™ students who can take two to three months (or longer) to work through their CAPM or PMP courses on a very part time basis.
But that’s for later the immediate issue is making sure we take enough time off to enjoy the holiday season but there will be time for at least one more blog before then…..
