Standards Errata Sheets
On this page you will find errata sheets to any PMI Standards that require one. The most recent errata sheet is for A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide) – Fifth Edition.
The errata for the first and second printing of this publication have been combined into one PDF.
Errata sheets are commonplace in book publishing. Such documents list content revisions, and are typically a page or two in length. As the name implies, errata sheets are intended to correct errors and alleviate potential confusion. While errata sheets are not generated to correct simple typographical errors, the revisions may address errors in the book, as well as things that were left out. In each case, the object is to promote accuracy, clarity, consistency and thoroughness.
The issuance of an errata does not lessen the value of the original publication. Since the vast majority of a book’s content is typically unaffected by errata, an errata sheet should be viewed as a supplement to a viable publication.
In order to determine the print run of your book or version of your PDF, refer to the bottom of the copyright page, which precedes the Notice page and Table of Contents. You will see a descending numerical string of numbers beginning with 10. The first printing will show the numerals 10 through 1. With each subsequent print run, the lowest numeral is removed from the string. Therefore, if your copy has all 10 numerals, you have the first printing if it has 9 numerals, you have the second printing.
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 (Needs the errata.)
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 (Needs the errata.)
10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 (Does not need the errata because the changes have been made in the reprint.)
