Useful for the PMI exam, but very badly structured, Nov. 28 2010
The PMBOK, is a very useful book to pass the certification exams of PMI.
However, this book of 350+ pages is very badly structured, and just provides lists of processes, tools and activities that a project manager should apply. There is no clear or in-depth explanation given for any reason why one tool is better than another, or when a certain method is appropriate of not.
In conclusion you could buy the book if you are studying for an exam, but the PMI should take it's function as a knowledge center more seriously and take the scope of this "Body of Knowledge" beyond the joke that it currently is.
