A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) - Fifth Edition should be used as a study reference if taking the PMP® exam. Though the Fifth edition is very similar in many ways to earlier editions, the test is based only on the Fifth edition and using an earlier version may not cover the changes that were made.

Reporting PDUs

PMPs are required to attain 60 PDUs within a 3-year period. PDUs are classified in five categories, and PMI Members can track and record PDUs online

CAPMS are not required to attain any PDUs; however, CAPMs are only allowed to hold the CAPM designation for a maximum of 5 years. After 5 years, CAPMs must apply for PMP certification or retake the CAPM exam.
