NOT PMP SELF-STUDY! No Answers - Very Poor Editing,
This review is from: Project Management: A Systems Approach to Planning, Scheduling, and Controlling, 7th Edition (Hardcover)
This book may have great information for project managers, but not for PMP certification candidates. The style is extremely dry, abstruse, and boring, making it difficult to plow through. IT IS NO GOOD FOR PMP SELF-STUDY BECAUSE THERE ARE NO ANSWERS TO TESTS AND CASE STUDIES. Ditto for the workbook. Kerzner appears to be a self-important, stuffy academician who managed to turn his lecture notes into a money tree. Typos and unintelligible "sentences" abound. NOT worth $75. Spend your money elsewhere.

I have to read this text for a Masters class, and after just the first chapter I couldn't agree more. I would add that Kerzner seems to be fond of inserting his opinion into the text and treating it as fact. Example: "Line managers always resent project managers for the following reasons..." I'm already tired of his opinions, bullet points, and poor diagrams. Its really sad, because I like my class and really want to learn project management.
