The book contains a lot of great material in a format that does not vary much throughout the book, making it more tedious than some alternative texts. Providing more variability in the form of tables, charts, and visual displays of the information would make this a more efficient study aid. The real downside of this book are the numerous errors especially in the practice exams at the end of the chapters. They solution keys provide conflicting information and sometimes even contradicts the information in the chapter. An experienced PM would not be fooled by these errors, but someone not as well versed in project management might get the wrong information if they just went through the practice exams.

This book helped me pass PMP exam on my first try. It is well organized and helps one think through PM processes and how they are related.This approach to PM helps tremendously on the exam - interrelationships is a big clue to success for passing the exam - especially for situational questions, of which there are many in the exam in all process areas. Using process flow to mind-map PM also mitigates the need to memorize all the gazillions of ITTOs, which I did not bother to memorize - and still passed. A suggestion for the book: the questions and answers in the Heldman text are much wordier than the actual exam that I took. Stated another way, the actual exam questions and answers were much shorter. An additional suggestion for the text is to include a few cost/schedule diagrams and how to interpret them (S-Curve diagrams with multiple variables plotted, etc.). I recommend this book and the price is right, especially with the online resources. Finally, concentrate on the simple/basic earned value equations, no need to go too deep there. Good luck.

I found the book easy to read and follow, but just as good as the previous versions. I think Kim needs to updgrade to add more tables, diagrams, and be more specific on inputs, tools and outputs for every process, instead of leaving everything to the text flow.

I purchased this book to prepare for the PMP exam as a companion to the PMBOK. I would highly recommend that as the way to view it. There is info in the PMBOK that is actually covered more succinctly than in this book. So in combination you should have what you need. It's written pretty well, and tries to apply real world examples to the concepts. Probably the most useful (for me) was the sample questions in the chapters and the sample test material that comes with the book (which is hard to find on the wiley/sybex website, but does exist).

One word of caution and a major issue though, there are numerous errors in the sample tests so be careful of that.

Between this book, the PMBOK, and lots of studying, I passed the PMP on the first try.

I wouldn't want to use this as my only study guide, but it is a great price and good for a second set of materials. It's always good to have more than one source.

This book promises access to a custom test engine, audio instruction, and electronic flashcards that you can not access. That was one of the biggest reasons I got this book instead of waiting for others.

I read this book along with PMBOK guide and passed the exam. I found the practice test questions on this book were not as good and recommend an external source for exam questions. I took Rita's exam questions and practiced after reading this book and when I got close to 80% on the exam, I went ahead and took the exam. I did fail it the first time but after reading this book I passed it. I recommend taking a lot of practice exams. I took practice exams about 40-50 times, it does not have to be 200 questions all the time just take 30-50 questions a time.

I took an online course that didn't do much to prepare me for the PMP exam. This guide gives real life examples and explains what's in PMBOK so you have a deeper understanding of the material. There is still a lot of memorization, but this should make the rest of the test easier. I will update this review after I take the exam.
