Thinking Alike or Not Thinking?

PMP Exam Tip: Knowing concepts that are no longer in the PMBOK Guide

Most exams cover material you’ve studied but sometimes the PMP exam includes questions that were not in the version of the PMBOK guide that you have studied. This can really throw you for a loop but if you’re prepared for it, it won’t be such a shock.
