I recently passed my PMP using Rita Mulcahy's, Andy Crowe's, and Kim Heldman's study guides. Using all three was a deliberate study strategy: I chose not to take an instructor-led prep course and study on my own.
Rita's was very good, but it did include some extra Rita-isms that I found to be distracting. Also, Rita didn't provide any external resources (web, audio) unless you pay more money. Andy's, in my opinion, was the best stand-alone resource. His writing style and organization were superior to the other two volumes. Also, Andy provided a week's worth of video lessons with the book. Kim's, in my opinion, was the least useful of the three. However, Kim did cover some material that the other two missed that did actually appear on my exam. Kim also provided an audio review with the study guide that I found to be useful.
Overall, I prefer the multiple text study method. If I had to choose one, I'd go with Andy Crowe.
As a project management instructor at a state university and someone who has reviewed countless project management books, I highly recommend this book.
- This book, when accompanied with the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK), is what you need at a minimum. Although I know people who passed the PMP only using this book, I don't recommend it. There are topics that are on the exam that are covered in the PMBOK that are not here and vice versa. Unless you are a good guesser, buy both.
- The practice exams at the end of each chapter are the best in the business. This is about as close as the real...
I am truly divided on my opinion on this book. I feel that there are some wonderful things about it, beyond being a mere study/prep guide. At the same time, as a study guide, it cannot stand alone and I felt I needed additional books. Let me discuss both of these aspects.
First, I will tell you that this is one of the most-read books in my household. Not only have I been studying for the exam for a long time, but I also use this book in my everyday work as a project manager. Why? Because the way it is written, it is almost like a guide to running your project. Each chapter proceeds in order of the activity as it would be pursued. It also includes an ongoing story or example about how that activity would be done, which often helps us remember. We learn best from stories, it turns out. I can easily skip these now as I review the materials, as they - like all other special sections of the book - are easily distinguishable and skipped. There is also a useful summery...
