Top Customer Reviews
My studying technique:
- Read each and every single word of this book while jotting down your own summary notes as they will be your number 1 source for reviewing (don't miss the end-of-chapter summaries as some have more info not included in the chapters themselves)
- Take the mock-exam provided for as many times as you till you score >90 to a 100. Also end-of-chapter quizzes are essential.
- Take all kinds of mock exams you can find online. Some are very useful (Brainbok for example) and write down notes for questions you've missed.
- Read the ITTO summary sheet provided in the CD everyday. I did not particularly memorise it, I just understood what each process is and all the terms in the ITTO, so I got a logic out of it.
- Just be motivated to pass the exam as the feeling upon directly receiving the result is tremendous!!!!
Thank you Joseph Phillips!
While this book is a good reference book and a companion to the PMBOK guide it should not be used as a replacement.
Pros: It provides a more of an explanation of the processes
It comes with a CD of sample problems, cheat sheets and other pertinent information you need to use in order to pass the test
Good reference to use behind the PMBOK guide
Cons: Do not rely solely on the sample questions in this book. In fact, the questions are not really all that difficult to answer.
They could provide more information about the formulas and how to apply them. There's one short chapter on that and it really doesn't go into a lot of detail
The only thing I would like to see is a separate book for the CAPM. For someone that's just studying for the CAPM and new to project management in general, it may be a bit overwhelming and it covers a bit more material than necessary for the CAPM.
Overall great book and would definitely recommend it!
Finally, the sarcasm in the book is its secret sauce. My favorites are:
- "And by execution, I mean the project team executing the project plan, not you executing the team - although that can be tempting at times."
- The NPV formula, step #5: "Take two aspirins."
The material is really tedious so this really helps keep you on track!
