Need advice to attend PMP exam after January 11

I have finalized my PMP exam schedule on January 10, as per my work schedule i may not attend this exam on that day. If i reschedule my exam on after January 11, how my preparation will support to new exam format. Shall i go with same preparation or i need to prepare latest version of materials. I am totally confusing please advise me.

 

Exam after 11th Jan is still based on PMBOK v5 and hence almost nothing will change. You may just see 2-3 questions on the new tasks, but these 2-3 new questions are not any considerable factor in front of 200 questions. Go ahead and give your exam with same preparations, you don't even need to read anything new.

You may look at some reputed REP or mock test providers, I am sure few energetic one should come up with some updates from 12th Jan. This is anyway optional activity if you wish to explore and find out.

Good luck,
Rohit, PMP
