What material did you used exactly ? I used Risk Management Practice Guide (The old edition) and PMBOK 5th Edition a few chapters from it. The exam didn’t change yet to reflect the new version of the practice guides and standards issued as far as I know.
At my time, many questions were outside the guides. You can find my lessons learned in the below link to my blog:
Is this an actual PMI product? If so, I'd contact PMI customer care and let them know...
I didn't find any reference to Rita's Prep Exam 8th Edition in PMI "store" or other study material suggestions other than your blog. Was that your "go to"? Please let me know. Thanks.

Now I am curious, that’s really odd but good that you reached out to them. Can you send us a link for the product so we check it out ?
Sure see below. I'm also curious about your blog suggestion for the Rita's Prep Exam. I did not find that on PMI or in Amazon. Where do you suggest I find that? This would be good for PMI to promote if it helped with your success!
Background: I've prepped for other PMI exams with the same types of recommended PMI study guides and passed with "above average" scores so, this is why it has me so perplexed why the exam would go outside the boundaries of the study guide or PMBOK
The PMI store is down, but the link to the amazon book I used in large part is located below:
The link you provided is for a book on amazon. Is that correct ? Not sure if this is a PMI endorsed book, I don’t see their logo there. Who informed you about this book ?
Hi Rami, this was the book recommended by PMI at the time. I applied for certification at the beginning of the year but delayed due to covid 19. PMI customer service directed me to this book to study. This book is published by the same group that other cert exams.
The concern is if we are to be successful, but as you see too, we can't get to the material to help us be successful then what are we to do?
Thanks for helping!
When I wrote the RMP a few years back, all I did was review the knowledge area in the PMBOK Guide, read over the Risk Management standard and do a bunch of practice exam questions from pmstar.org.
While it is a challenging exam, I did find it a lot simpler than the PMP so an actual self-study course may not be as necessary which might explain the dearth of available products.
I agree with Kiron but also one thing you need to remember is that those exams test your in-depth understanding of the material beyond any text book and that's why many gets surprised during the exam.
My portfolio management exam for example, 30% of the questions were from topics of many different textbooks.
