Product Description

About the Author

Jennifer Greene, has spent the past 15 years or so building software for many different kinds of companies. She's worked for small start-ups and some huge companies along the way. She's built software test teams and helped lots of companies diagnose and deal with habitual process problems so that they could build better software. Since her start in software test and process definition, she's branched out into development management and project management. She's currently managing a big development team for a global media company and she's managed just about every aspect of software development through her career.

Jennifer founded Stellman & Greene Consulting with Andrew Stellman in 2003, initially to serve the scientific and academic community. They have worked in a wide range of industries including finance, telecommunications, media, non-profit, entertainment, natural language processing, science and academia. They do speaking engagements, provide training on development practices, manage teams, and build software. Together, they've written two highly acclaimed books on project management (Head First PMP and Applied Software Project Management), Head First C#, and most recently just finished up Beautiful Teams.

For more information about Jennifer, Andrew Stellman, and their books, visit http://www.stellman-greene.com.

Andrew Stellman, despite being raised a New Yorker, has lived in Pittsburgh twice. The first time was when he graduated from Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, and then again when he and Jenny were starting their consulting business and writing their first project management book for O'Reilly. When he moved back to his hometown, his first job after college was as a programmer at EMI-Capitol Records--which actually made sense, since he went to LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts to study cello and jazz bass guitar. He and Jenny first worked together at that same financial software company, where he was managing a team of programmers. He's since managed various teams of software engineers, requirements analysts, and led process improvement efforts. Andrew keeps himself busy eating an enormous amount of string cheese and Middle Eastern desserts, playing music (but video games even more), studying taiji and aikido, having a girlfriend named Lisa, and owing a pomeranian.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Joseph Abramo on July 14 2012
Format: Paperback
I was hesitant and skeptical about this book but after reading few pages I was easily convinced, it would be an easy and very interesting unlike any other. Sure enough gave it a chance and I was highly focused as it is written unlike any other PMP books. However, along the way I noticed mistakes and topic inconsistency. I then compared the inputs and outputs of some of the areas such as Integration, Scope and other knowledge base and soon enough had me derailed. So I needed to go back to Rita's book and compare the information. Certainly, Rita's book is the one and only perhaps more detailed one in the market to pass PMP exam. I would recommend it as a basis to get to know the processes which is way easier than anything I've seen out there but would not recommend it for PMP exam. If you're preparing for PMP exam, add companion books such as Rita's "PMP Exam Prep" and most definitely the "PMBOK".

I started reading the PMBOK, but I had trouble focusing on it or even following it sometimes. There are some very poorly written sentences (I even came across a sentence or two with no verb!). I suspect it was written initially in a different language than English and translated, or written by people who's first language isn't English, as the phraseology is really rough. It's SUPER repetitive on some aspects and then covers whole tools and techniques in a sentence or two with few to no examples or explanation -- leaving you to need to do research on it. I guess that's because it's NOT a training manual. It's the standard. This Head First PMP is one of the best training manuals - using images, fun cutesy "test your knowledge" games, and other tricks and tips to teach you and make you remember. This particular one is for PMBOK version 4 and the test is now based on version 5, so you'll need an upgraded version of this book. I would NOT recommend it to people looking to study for the exam now as there have been too many changes.

This PMP study guide is one of the best I've seen... it is simple, easy to understand and you can relate to the different examples of Project Management scenarios provided in each of the knowledge areas. The best thing about this book is that it actually makes studying for the PMP fun!! I never thought that was possible :) !! I highly recommend this book for anyone studying for the PMP exam...and even just as a reference book for Project Management.

This book is EXTREMELY helpful; I read though it twice and referred to my other project management (PM) course study material while studying for the exam. I have 6 years of experience as a PM before taking this exam and this book supplemented my knowledge beautifully. If you have zero experience as a PM, this book would offer you a good foundation to build your knowledge of the PM role and processes. Best of luck.

My first look at this book, I figured it looked pretty silly. However, I decided to us it as part of my PMP exam prep and quickly discovered what a great tool it is. By using pictures, puzzles, etc., it really helped me learn the concepts in a unique way that most importantly, helped make them stick. The book also contains practice questions and descriptive answers that are invaluable to the study experience. I used the Guide to PMBOK, Andy Crowe's PMP book, and this Head First book. This book is a great place to start. Best of luck.

This book is really well designed for people who would like to prepare for the PMP exam on their own.

All the topics are very well covered in a format and style that makes it easy to remember.
