First off, this book is designed to be used with the 3rd edition of the PMBoK, not the 4th edition. The book is also full of serious typos that can affect your ability to take some of the tests. For instance, one of the test questions has the same answer choices repeated. The questions and the material covered in the book are not that bad, but this book does not have the polish and material needed for someone to feel at ease taking the CAPM.
I would recommmend another book that will give sample questions along with a more detailed explanation about the flow charts which will give you fits if you rely on this book to help prep for the test.
I just bought this book and am very disappointed, the wording of the questions are so bad it is impossible to answer them correctly. It is like this book was written in another language and then poorly translated. Also the explanations for the answers are incredibly vague. For example, when explaining who the key stakeholders are in a project his explanation is simply "because they are the key stakeholders." extremely disappointed almost to the point of returning this book!
Excellent book. I only wish that the answers to the exam simulation questions were on the same page, for study purposes, but it's ok. Should be read along Paul Sanghera's other book: PMP In Depth: Project Management Professional Study Guide for PMP and CAPM Exams. Those two make a winning combination for passing the exam. It gives you a complete and clear link to the knowledge areas, and explains all the answers to the exam simulation questions, so you have a better understanding of what the correct answer is, and why. Personally, I think is the best book for CAPM aspiring students.
