I highly recommend this book, both as a practitioner who looks for tips and best practices as I lead project efforts, and as an instructor. I encourage all of my students to use this book as an extension of their learning. It provides a very user-friendly, practical approach to apply tools and techniques to ensure projects deliver the expected value. The book also contains links to free downloadable templates that have been very helpful in setting up some basic project structure.
Mr. Verzuh keeps bringing us better and better guidance with his books and I am grateful for that!
The end of most chapters includes some interactive element. These include PMP exam practice questions and hands-on exercises (e.g., constructing a Responsibilities Assignment Matrix). Moreover, the book is accompanied by a website that includes loads of tutorials and templates to kick start your projects.

The documents which can be downloaded from the web page helped me a lot. The book explains very clearly how to fill the documents which vital to project management. There are also many sections about PMP exam and MS Project usage.
The Fast Forward MBA was able to provide practical knowledge without being "wordy". One of the most Prized possession for a PM is their Templates, and as a Template Hoarder, I found great ideas for improvements on one's I use and some Actual Downloadable Forms. Having the base knowledge that this book provides will set you up to take on more industry/function specific roles as a PM and be successful.
