How to Use Your  <span style="color:steelblue"> Transition Handout </span> to Retrain - This was a January 2016 Promotion for Prior Exam People
Note to SmartPath LLC Trainees: This was for the V5 to V5.2 PMP Exam. This exam ended 3/25/18. Please see information for the new V6 exam which started on 3-26-18

This handout is no longer available; however, it was mailed or given to all prior exam trainees to needed to move over to the new PMP® Exam who signed up for our PMP /Transition Training. If you attended the transition / pmconversion training in January 2016 onsite or Live Video Conference you are also entitled to 5 days of free quiz practice. You need to email neredahaque@smartpathllc.com in order to get started. If you don't have it or you have lost it, please click here for the options that you have now.

How to use your handout – This information is especially important if you’re not ordering the new materials – you will need all new quizzes to pick up the new skills areas and to learn how to interpret the new roles and the new emphasis across all roles. Here's a table of content for your transition materials:

How to combine your prior Exam pmWorkbook with your transition materials:
1. Sequence numbers: They have changed – see page 60. Use this slide for your new process sequence. You can also use a marker and re-sequence your Workflow 13 if you'd prefer
2. Cross out Roles in your materials: When you’re reading through the “old” exam materials, cross out the roles that are mentioned after each process. The former PM roles have been modified, one has been deleted and 8 have been added. All of your roles are in your transition materials
3. Quiz Practice: Redoing all quizzes is always best; however, you will cover most of the new areas in Quizzes A, I, J, L, K and it would be good to do Quiz H. If you are weak in Math, quiz D is an excellent practice opportunity. If you have been complying for the pass guarantee, then finish all quiz practice again before taking the second exam in order to stay compliant.
4. Increase / Decrease in Executing / Closing: See slide 3 of your handout and note that there are now 62 questions in Executing and only 14 in Closing.
5. Understand the concepts: Understanding 72% of your materials and learn cognitively through reasoning and analytical thinking by practicing the quizzes. Don't forget to balance your knowledge according to the number of questions within each process group.
