About the Author
Rita Mulcahy, PMP, was an international expert in project management Tricks of the Trade and best practices with over 15 years and $2.5 billion of hands-on experience. During her career, she directly taught tens of thousands of project managers from around the world, and prepared them to pass the PMP and CAPM exams. Rita spent 7 years as a PMI chapter officer, speaking at PMI Global Congress, Project World, and PMI's International Project Management Symposium to standing room only crowds.
Rita was the founder of RMC Project Management, a project management training, consulting and speaking firm helping companies use project management tools and techniques to complete projects faster, cheaper, better, and with fewer resources. RMC Project Management was among the first training firms to ever receive Registered Education Provider (R.E.P.) status from the Project Management Institute.

Also be aware that there have been corrections made to the book, which the publisher has a list of on their site.
Be cautious buying a used version, and make sure you have all the details of the condition it is in. I had to return the one I bought because it wasn't in useable condition (though it was described as being in good condition). It had the study exercises filled in, and a lot of pages cut out, and marked up with so much pen/highlighter it just wasn't even suitably readable. If they don't have these kind of details listed, then I'd contact the seller to ask, or just buy new.
I passed the CAPM Exam (the real one) about 2 hours prior to this posting.
Therefore, I recommend this book.
Not one of the questions provided in either this book or the practice software were on the real exam. Not one.
Many were kind-of close, and the book and practice test software did get me up to speed on the current PMI version. I passed, and that's the point. However, reading the book thoroughly, and brushing up on PMBOK v5 will probably result in a better grade on the test.
The public consensus is, and has been for several years, that the RMC products are among the best, if not the best, and I agree. However, by Question 25, it was clear to me that I had to rely on knowledge of PMI theory, principles, processes, etc. (really, the point of the test) and not on just "prep". Further, some of the terms (which are testable) are likely only in PMBOK.
Again, I recommend this book, because it did and does work. Just be prepared to spend more than a few hours finding answers in PMBOK
I highly recommend RMC's CAPM Exam software that you can find on their website. I do not recommend their flashcards.
This book provides a perfect study plan for passing the CAPM Exam. You'll find that the practice tests are consistent with the subjects and difficulty of the real thing.
