How does the PMBOK 7th edition impact your preparation if you are already midway?
Few new concepts have been introduced in the PMBOK 7th edition. There is also some repetition of content from the PMBOK 6 in the 7th edition and the way in which the content is presented has also changed. If you’re already gone through PMBOK 6 training or read the book, you can just read the PMBOK once. It’s 1/5 the size of the PMBOK 6 so you can read this book much faster than the PMBOK 6.
Can I start with this PMBOK 7 online course before taking other courses?
Completely. In fact since this course is based on the PMBOK 7th edition book, it’s more condensed than the 6th edition course. Starting with this course is a better idea since 6th edition courses can be fairly lengthy (35-40 hours) and you might lose motivation along the way. This course will set the stage for going through the content from the PMBOK 6. Some people with project management experience who may not want to read the PMBOK 6 will also benefit from this PMBOK 7 course to expedite their PMP exam prep strategy.
