Best Reading to Pass PMP Exam June 14 2006
By Teri - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought and borrowed many books to study for the PMP exam and this was the BEST book, both in the material it covered and the way in which the material was presented. It is one of the few that take your through the project management process as you would really experience it, from project inception to closeout. Most other books geared toward the PMP exam organize the material based on the PMI knowledge areas, which have so much overlap it becomes confusing. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. I passed the exam using this book and the quizes in Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep, which follows the knowlege areas.

Good organization, beware of errors Nov. 17 2006
By Plato - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I agree with the review by Albert, that there are numerous errors. The coverage mentioned in the title page of every chapter, leaves out some important topics covered within.

I would recommend this book to be read after attending a Instructor-led Training course, reading the PMBOK once, and reading Rita's book. Having such background will help to know the errors immediately.

On the positive side, this book is a good approach to organize the knowledge areas and process in a logical - real life order. The ongoing Kitchen Heaven Store project example provides a welcome break and a real-life manifestation of concepts.

Add to this, the sample exams and end of chapter summaries. I'll rate this 4-star and a good value for the money spent.

PMP preparation exam July 24 2008
By Luis V. Perales Lopez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Outstanding book, not just focused on providing tips for passing the PMP exam, it also gives fundamentals on project management very useful for the day to day operation. The CD is just excellent, it has the entire book in PDF, allows me to print parts and easily handcarry for future lecture, the test machine is challenging. 100% recommend.

Boring to read, mediocre test questions, lowers confidence. July 10 2007
By avh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I started PMP study reading this book. It is almost as boring (and lengthy) to read as the PMBOK, endless repeats on what the inputs and outputs are. The test exams at the end of each chapter are frustrating - and the given answers often still leave you puzzled.
I changed to Rita Mulcahy's book - which was a MUCH easier read with a lot more practical and useful information. She also doesn't focus much on memorization, but understanding. The sample questions are very good and the answers give you a very good understanding.
After successfully passing mock exams, I tried the mock exam included on the CD with the KIM Heldman book. The questions were very lengthy and difficult to read (worse than the real PMP exam) and I didn't manage to get a good score on this mock exam - which was really bad for my confidence close to the exam. I decided to not look at it anymore and I passed the exam.
Good Book for the PMP Test March 6 2008
By Michael, PMP - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this book as the basis for my PMP study and I felt it worked very well. Summaries of chapters and key questions / concepts helped highlite what was needed. This is not a regurgitation of the PMBOK but a good book to teach you to be a PMP.
