    Whats is PRINCE2® 2009 ?

    PRINCE2® was originally developed in 1989 to address the issues that were commonly causing UK government IT projects to fail. Since then the method has undergone a couple of re-writes to take account of feedback from its practical use and to bring it in line with other AXELOS methods. The current version was released in 2009 and is used internationally. This version of PRINCE2® will be discontinued by AXELOS on the 31/12/17 and replaced by PRINCE2® 2017.

      Didn’t realize the product I bought didn’t include the exam. Can’t fault the eLearning though – it made the mock exams included easy enough.
