Attendees of this course's standard, government, or premium versions receive a copy of A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Seventh Edition. Purchasers of the on-demand-only version do not receive a copy of the PMBOK® Guide.

According to PMI, the PMP exam is not written according to any single text or singularly supported by any reference. Instead, the exam is based on the PMP certification exam content outline (ECO), not the (PMBOK® Guide) or other reference books. A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Seventh Edition is now a reference to inform the development of the exam items; however, the references indicated by PMI are not inclusive of all resources that may be utilized to prepare for the exam and should not be interpreted as a guaranteed means of passing the exam.

Both the PMBOK® Guide — Seventh Edition and the PMBOK® Guide — Sixth Edition are available in digital format as part of a PMI membership.
