    Great you published your PMP Exam prep for the PMBOK 5th.

    Quick question, for those testing after August 1, when will the All-in-One PMP Exam Prep Kit for PMBOK 5th edition be available?

    All the best,
    – Lee

    What are the differences between the old and new PMP exam? What will be the cost of your new exam prep book?

    Hi Katrina, it was great talking with you on Wednesday. Emailing you as you suggested. Thank you for listening to my extenuating circumstance as to why I need to retake the PMP exam and also for researching with your manager team, the possibility of my getting an abridged time frame metric trial subscription beyond the standard 1 week given my limited hours per day I could use the site. if something could be worked out to get say x number of hours that I could stretch over 2-3 weeks given on a good day I could maybe get in 45 minutes to 1 hour before my young daughter goes to bed and only 1 day on weekend , I’d be most greatful. How do I get the subscription? Order the book at amazon and then come to you? or is the website exam questions trial part of the buy with amazon (who still currently seems sold out? Again, I’m wrapping up my “retake” 5 day course this week and then back in work next week but I want to take the exam in 2-4 weeks max from now, preferably sooner. Thanks again for your help and suggestions. Again, Monica Semonolsky, a recent happy customer and friend of mine, referred me.

    Kind regards,
    Randi Sklar

    Hi. Is there a release date for a second edition of this 5th edition PMP exam prep book? It seems that the currently available version has some issues or errors that need to be fixed. Best regards,

    • Andy Crowe says:

      Yes! The 2nd printing has been out for a few weeks now. The 3rd printing will be available through retail channels by the end of this month.

    Hi Andy,

    Have you released the latest edition in US? What’s the price?

    E A Thomas

    • Andy Crowe says:

      Thomas, we have. The book is the same price – $99.95 (discounted to about $49 on Amazon), and it’s fully updated for the 5th edition. Thanks!

    Hi Andy,

    I have gone to the end of Chapter 7 so far and enjoy your book tremendously. Any reason the soft copy is not out in the market? That will help a lot of professionals who are on the go to be able to read using their iPad, Kindle, iPhone, tablet, laptop etc…

  8. Joe says:

    Hi Andy, I’m wondering if the PMP Prep (5th Ed) all in one prep kit is available for purchase now? Thank you! Joe

    • Colette says:

      Hi Joe,

      Currently the all-in-one kit is not available for purchase but plans are to have it released by late November/early December.

      We appreciate you choosing us to prepare for your exam!

  9. Chayan says:

    Hello Andy,

    Currently the 5th Edition is available only as an imported book in India which is about 20 times the cost of the edition reprinted in India. When are you going to start the reprint in India thereby allowing Indian students to buy this book ?


    • Andy Crowe says:

      We tried printing the book in India, but the arrangement was not mutually beneficial. We had a hard time justifying it economically. At this point there are no immediate plans to try again, although we are open to other arrangements.

      Thank you for your interest!

    Hi Andy,

    Last year purchased 4th edition of this book and liked it very much the way the concept and topics are presented. Unfortunately i couldn’t pass the exam.

    I have now again scheduled exam for 6th Jan 2014 and looking for purchasing the 5th edition.

    Please suggest where to get it from
    As the price on Amazon is high as it has imported edition.
    When can we expect the Indian version of the same?

    Further give some tips pass the exam in this attempt.


  11. Tarun says:

    Dear Andy,

    Though many have written an you have responded as well, there is strong demand for an Indian reprinted edition. A lot like me have not been able to plan our exams as we were waiting for the Indian edition. Also velociteach not being in India has also not helped. Hope we see the Indian edition soon.

    • casey.pittman says:
