Having had the good fortune of being taught by Jeff Furman at NYU on the PMP standards, it is clear to me why this book is so effective: Jeff is tremendously passionate about project management, knowledgeable about the field in general as well as the PMI's standards, and truly dedicated to the art of educating. Jeff's enthusiasm energized our class and it is clearly felt in the book, which reads more like a conversation than it does a textbook.
It is also clear that this book is not only written from the point of view of an expert in project management and PMI's material, but from that of an educator who is able to draw from years of teaching experience to focus on topics on which students tend to have questions, and who knows how to make clear the more convoluted subject matter.
As a strategy to study for the PMP, I studied this book along with the Andy Crowe, and together they made a powerful study tool. It gave me the opportunity to hear about the subject from two different and complementary angles, both of which are extremely well-written and clear. Both books also contain study and test-taking tips and strategies which proved very helpful. For what it's worth, I passed my PMP on the first try using this strategy-- so I highly recommend it!
I had the pleasure of taking Jeff's PMP course at New York University. From the moment the class started I could tell he was passionate about Project Management and educating his students. This enthusiasm comes through just as clearly in the PM Answer Book and I highly recommend it!
A major factor this book helped me, was that Mr. Furman's writing style is from a experienced PM with "real world" experience, and he was able to bridge the gap many "real world" PM's have when studying for the PMP exam. He was able to put on his "PM hat" and explain why this particular theory or process was valuable. In short it bridged the gap between theory and real world experience.
Mr Furman writing style is very easy to read, and is very refreshing after reading the PMBOK for a few hours at a time. I highly recommend this book.
