Had to buy the book for a class and it was a fast read. However, it was more relevant to project management within an organization than simply within a class group, although there were obviously important carryovers.

Another useful For Dummies book - useful project manager's resource Aug. 16 2010
By Project Manager - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I liked the author's explanations of a number of the key concepts presented in the 4th version of the PMBOK: four stages of a project's life cycle; the initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling, and closing processes of a project; the scope statement; work breakdown structure; and so on.

Each chapter is followed by a summary of which concepts in the preceding chapter are also addressed in PMBOK 4 and therefore most likely to appear on the PMP exam - these summaries are good cheat sheets to use when reviewing for the PMP exam.

I bought the book to brush up on concepts I'd learned on the job over the years, and I am pleased with my purchase.

You read it and you are no dummie any more Nov. 3 2010
By Manfred - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The famous "dummies" line may be perceived as very basic and limiting information to the absolute minimum. Not in this book. It is not minimalistic at all. Since project management is only 50% knowledge but 50% skills, it has exactly the correct depth to provide an overview about PM tools and methods without overburdening the reader.

Well-written useful tool for the novice PM and the expert PM alike Aug. 16 2010
By Jonathan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have been a project and program manager for the past 7 years of my career and even with some years of experience I found the 3rd edition of Project Management for Dummies to be very enlightening. I was looking for a tool to help me prepare for the PMP certification exam. Admittedly, I had come across and used a majority of the topics in the book before but the book served as a really good refresher. I thought the topics I hadn't used before were presented in a clear and straightforward way. I had read portions of my colleagues' copies of the 1st and 2nd editions of this book in the past and all three editions of the book touch upon a wide range of PM best practices. The author consistently presents the material in a user friendly, easy to read style. The examples are very helpful. The 3rd edition seems to be tailored to be more of a preparation tool for the PMP certification exam - I thought the first two editions presented useful material for the exam but just not as strong a tool as the 3rd edition. The author got it right this time - study the 3rd edition before you take the exam! I think the main improvement in the 3rd edition was the author's use of the same terminology as the Project Management Body of Knowledge (version 4) - the first two editions seemed to conform with the versions of the PMBOK in effect when they were written, but Project Management for Dummies 3 is current and relevant.

Dummies - excellent as usual! July 28 2010
By mdoher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is an excellent starting guide and great for mentoring new PMs - giving them an easier to read book than some of the Prince2 or PMBOK based material that is published.

Recommended as a starting guide.

does the trick July 13 2010
By BF - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Refers to the PMBok in all major subjects which is commendable. Gives a simple and clear overview of the project management methodology and is helpful for those who whish to adopt some of the techniques available. However, those who intend to work as project managers, this book is not enough. Go to a qualified school and get the degree.
