Errata Sheets for Errors in the PMBOK Guide


Believe it or not, but there are errors in the PMBOK Guide 3rd Edition.
That is why the PMI has made available 2 PDF documents with errata
information. They used to have these on their website, but ever since
the new website came online, these files are no longer available. I
have received them from the PMI and because the PMI isn't acting fast
enough, I am making them available through my website - here they are:

Please check the version of your PMBOK Guide, before you use these errata sheets. Here is what the PMI writes:

the PMBOK® Guide—Third Edition was published in October 2004, there
have been two errata sheets. The first pertained to the first printing
of the book (or CD-ROM). The second errata sheet pertains to all
printings up to the current (fifth) printing.

In order to determine the print run of your book, refer to the
bottom of the copyright page (which precedes the Notice page and Table
of Contents). You will see a descending numerical string of numbers
beginning with 10. The first printing of the PMBOK® Guide—Third Edition
will show the numerals 10 through 1. With each subsequent print run,
the lowest numeral is removed from the string. Therefore, if your copy
of the PMBOK® Guide—Third Edition has all 10 numerals, you have the
first printing and you will need both errata sheets.

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 (needs first errata sheet and second errata sheet)

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 (needs second errata sheet)

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 (needs second errata sheet)

10 9 8 7 6 5 4 (needs second errata sheet)

10 9 8 7 6 5 (needs second errata sheet)
