Not much help exists for now. If it starts to exist, it will be untested, I think incomplete. You probably have to look out for a PMI approved training provider, once they are known.
So if you can, go for the current exam.
If you want to prepare for the new exam with the current information, you should
1. read and analyze the new ECO
2. learn from current PMBoK, this knowledge still will cover 50% of questions.
3. social skills -
42% will pertain to leadership. I would focus on the leadership parts of PMBoK (role of the PM, stakeholder engagement, resource/team building) and the relevant parts in the agile practice guide that is bundled with PMBoK.
4. 8% of questions will look at strategy/business- I would understand the concepts of portfolio and program mgmt, benefit management and the business case.
5. consider the sources mentioned in the recommended readings.
6. about 50% of the questions across the other areas are relevant for the agile world. So read the agile practice guide and if you can the preparation materials for the ACP exam.
Just my personal opinion based on 20 years of PMP prep teaching and what I understood so far.
Also, the ECOs of PMP and ACP are different.
Great response by Thomas. When the exam changes, we shall see what resource providers like RMC Solutions and PM PrepCast will come up with.
If you are taking the exam before July 2020, here is what I advise:
- PMBOK 6th Edition + ECO
- Rita Mulcahy’s PMP Exam 9th
Courses and Simulation Exams:
- RMC Solutions
- PM PrepCast
- PM Star
- Udemy (Joseph Philips)
Hope this helps.
Thomas made some good points.
