Joseph Phillips writes in a very readable (often humorous) style. The CD videos also explain concepts in a very understandable manner. This is important because many of the terms and many of the concepts in project management (as contained in the PMBOK Guide) are foreign to many practicing I.T. professionals (Do you know the 8/80 rule or that RAM means Responsibility Assignment Matrix?).
However, a key success factor for complex projects is good project management. The best companies not only have great project managers, they train project team members in the terms, concepts and processes that their projects will use.
Today is a gorgeous day. I prepared well (even recalled earned value formulas) for the CAPM exam. I passed the exam with flying colors and with an hour to spare! Much of my success is due to this excellent book.
If I had any criticism for this book, it would be that while the book starts out with a very colloquial tone, by the time it gets into the meat of PMBOK requirements, it reverts back to being pretty dry. In other words, some of the terms become confusing in that they're not differentiated very well from other, similar process terms. However, this is likely not the fault of this book, but more that the PMBOK is pretty ridiculously dry itself.
Overall, great study book, accurate questions and answers so far, only one or two significant typos, and it's been a great tool in my studying process.
Steps I took to pass the CAPM exam:
-Read this book cover to cover
-Make the notecards that Philips recommends... You need to know the definitions in all of the chapters
- You must know the 42 process and all of their inputs, outputs as well as the tools and techiniques used in each knowledge area. There are many questions on process inputs/outputs on the CAPM exam.
- Go over the Chapter Summaries and take the end of Chapter Quizzes before you take the exam
- Use the practice exams included in the book. I found these very helpful in preparing me to take the actual exam.
-Learn the EVM formulas as these are easy questions on the real exam if you know the formulas.
Overall I think this is a solid resource to use in preparing for your CAPM certification. I felt compelled to write my first Amazon review after using this book to pass my exam.
