5.0 out of 5 stars Math Book tames PMP exam jitters Nov. 15 2011
This book should be part of any PMP exam candidate's preparation exam. It more than compliments other PMP study guides, as it can break out any and all formula-based questions that the PMP exam could throw at you... I am looking forward to using it to reinforce my study strategy, especially if I find a gap in my knowledge once I attempt a myriad of mock exams.

In fact, as a stand-alone reference book for all more straight forward PMBoK-styled issues involving mathematics, it is a good refresher of why that software does what it does - eg) forward and backward pass... one should always know what are the originating math-based ideas of computer programs.

This book will make better project managers of us all - math need not be the exclusive domain of analysts and accountants.

4.0 out of 5 stars Erros in the book and CDROM Feb. 13 2011
By MCSINC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Book Errors
pg 8 example 2
PV = FV / (1+r) time not multiplied by

Pg 131 problem 4
The correct answer is C and answer B on pg 134

Pg 67 example 1
The answer is Make = 92000 and Buy = 65000 so EVM equals 27000 NOT -138000

Test 2 Question 1
The question says AC =15000 and the Answer says AC =25000 you will get this question wrong.

Test 6 Question 10
Cost Budget = cost baseline + management reserve so 95000 + 9500 + 1900 = 123500 not answer 125400, the cost baseline is calculated twice.

Test 8 Question 2
The problem does not give the 5 percent interest rate, to get the answer correct assume 1.05 in (1+r)

Test 10 Question 2
The question is looking for SD not Variance which is not specified.

Test 10 Question 1
Answer B and D are the same answer but answer D will be the correct one.

Test 10 Question 7
There is no EVM question to the answer, but the answer is A

1.0 out of 5 stars Book has several formula errors in it starting at Chapter 1 Nov. 15 2010
By shannont_1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book starts out with errors on pages 8 and 9 of the book when calculating simple Present and Future Values.
I would not recommend this book to anyone studying for the PMP, you will fail the math portion if you relied on
this book.
I am disappointed after purchasing it.

AGAIN... this book has errors in it. In fact...you can find the EXACT same math problems and formats in Rita Mulcahy's and Andy Crowe's PMP prep books!

5.0 out of 5 stars PMP Certification Mathematics is an excellent resource May 11 2010
By Richard Mandarino - Published on Amazon.com
I found the text to be very well written and organized in a fashion that flowed well from one subject to the next. The book certainly covers all of the math one would expect to be on the PMI exam and more. I'm familiar with all of the math, but actually learned more detail on items such as: depreciation, crashing, and probability. I would recommend the book to any student that is preparing for the PMI Exam, especially those that find math to be extremely challenging. The book would also serve as a good resource for those that have already passed the exam. I plan on showing it to my students as a potential PM resource.

1.0 out of 5 stars misleading information Aug. 27 2013
By John - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The errors that have been in the book since 2010 are still there. No errata sheet available. I purchased the Kindle version, and it has references to the CD. The Kindle version doesnt have this. I went to McGraw Hills web site and no option to download it.

This book needs to be corrected for errors and have a way to get the CD for the Kindle version.

I would have to tell someone studying for the PMP test to look at the many other options for the math portion. Stay away from this book, at least the Kindle version.

The only thing I can figure out is that the authors and McGraw-Hill dont really care about accuracy. Just the dollars.
