There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
All of that said, this book could use a major re-write. The editing was non-existent. There are typos, misspellings and poorly formed sentences all over the place, and it seems to have gotten worse as it went on. Either the editor quit halfway through, the publishing deadline caught the author halfway through self-review or maybe I just became more sensitive to it as time went on. The second main issue is that the answers were often lacking explanations for why something was incorrect, or would just reaffirm that an answer was correct because, well, it was correct. Finally, I felt like there was way more focus on ITTO than what I experienced with my random exam questions. That may or may not be represantitive, but I will admit it freaked me out in my final days of study.
All of that said, I still give this 4 stars because of the price, the general quality of the questions, and that I almost always agreed with the answers. That last one sounds odd, but I have run into online sources and a study guide (not Rita's) that had a number of questions that I could in no way support the answers to.
Question 376 on total assumption has not been in the PMBOK guide since 2010. I had Google the question to find an example of the formula.
My advice is that if you are answering the questions and never heard about what is being asked, it is probably an outdated question you should look in PMBOK guide for confirmation assuming you have already been unlucky enough to buy this book otherwise I would advice that you don’t buy this book at all.
I am upset, that I spent money on a practice test and the questions are not up to date even though the title of book is “for the PMBOK guide, 5 edition”
I hope to meet with the author, Sean Whitaker, soon.
For instance, question 275 asks what kinds of problems could affect communication between the sender and receiver of the message. They note that lacking a communication device is not an acceptable answer to this problem. Having run meetings where a party does not have a device capable of running the communications software, this very much is a problem. The answer key just skips over this answer and repeats the same line as before.
In short, I appreciate the book for what it is, a cheap bank of questions. It is even in the title, "PMP Examination Practice Questions". Nowhere does Sean Whitaker promise answers or discussions to those questions. I would recommend this book as a last-minute review or mini-exam you could give yourself as the questions are different from the other major review books out there.
