3.0 out of 5 stars Not a good download for Kindle Oct. 4 2011
By Sheila - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was for a class I was taking. While I can read it very well, I found the graphs and exhibits to very difficult to read and use. I ended up having to purchase the book so I could actively discuss the contents on the graphs. Very disappointing. I thought I would be saving money but ended up spending more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Informative Feb. 17 2012

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Using this as required text for a class I'm taking online for my Masters in Engineering Management. I am pleasantly surprised with the quality fo this book. It comes with the 60-day trial disk of MS Project, which is nice. I have many years experience in project management, but this book gives me so much more information and also skills for large scale project management.

2.0 out of 5 stars This book is not created correctly March 18 2014
By Paul H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has pieces of chapters missing, and chapters placed in the wrong place. It is not like pages were ripped out, it was put together incorrectly.
other than that, it was a great price, and may just get me through my class... if i don't waste too much time trying to find my answers for my quizzes.

2.0 out of 5 stars All around bad... Oct. 7 2013
By Lindsey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had to get this textbook for my class and as most college students know, textbooks are either a hit or miss and sadly this one is a miss. The organization of the book is poor and it reads like stereo instructions. The cosmetic formatting of this book is poor and I just really wish that another project management book was used for this class. Good Luck!
