I have noticed from http://www.pmi.org website that PMI is about to launch a new Standard for Business Analysis which will be available for comments (as they said) from 28th of February 2017.. At the same time, their reference list for the PBA exams it still remains the same.
Since I have booked my PBA exams on 25th of April, do I have to worry that the contents of the exams might change? When does PMI expects to make available the new standard for the public? Do we have any clue what will include?

It looks like on the Guide to Business Analysis, they have integrated together in one book contents from Practitioners Guide, PMBOK, and other books that they had in exam reference list before. It is also using the same approach with PMBOK, by defining knowledge areas, processes with inputs, tools and techniques and outputs. I guess that the exam content will change significantly in the future. Maybe the reduction in application fee for PBA is also related to this.
