PM Feedback Requested: PMBOK 4th Edition

The Fourth Edition of the PMBOK(R) Guide comes out today. 

Rich Maltzman, PMP from Scope Crepeis taking a poll on the LinkedIn Project Management Bloggers group for PMs and would like to know if you *care* about this, and your reasons for caring or not.

Using the following scale:

1. Exhilarated, Overjoyed
2. Excited, Very Interested
3. Mildly interested
4. Passing interest
5. Doesn’t mean anything to me

…please provide your rating number and a very quick rationale as to why you chose that number. Do you refer to the PMBOK Guide often? Are you using it to study for the PMP Exam and wonder how the test changes?

My response is # 2: Excited, Very Interested.  I have been studying the third edition to take my PMP exam in FEB 2010 with Cornelius Fichtner’s awesome Project Management PrepCast.  I am “nervously excited” to see how much rework I will need to do to catch up for the new version. I hope I don’t have to do what Yoda says and “unlearn what I have learned”!

Need help with PMP Exam Formulas?

Cornelius Fichtner, PMP is a name you should know if you are a project manager.  He provides a lot of free information to learn and grow.  He also has some great products.  His Five PMP® Exam Formulas Explained presentation is extremely helpful (RSS readers will need to open this post to view).
He has more information like this at PM Study Guide and Free PMP® Exam Questions.
I am currently listening to his PM PREPCAST and find it incredibly helpful since he translates the dry PMBOK into something I can understand (with a great price).  I have been a fan of his free PM Podcast for about two years, and really enjoy his interviews with other PMs.
He recently launched a new site PM Lectures which looks interesting but I haven’t had a chance to sample or purchase anything.  Based on his history of quality and ability to communicate complex ideas simply, I am sure this will be a valuable site.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
