It is important to ensure that consumers are aware if they are purchasing the most recent version of a book especially when it is a professional standard.
It is recommended that the most recent version of PMPOK Version 4 be purchased.
The identifier is 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 and is located at the bottom of the Publisher's information page (2nd page of the text)
Project arrived on time, bran new and still in the plastic wrapping.
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.
Best price is on Amazon, which is a good thing since the new edition is coming out in the new year.
It is supposed to teach you everything you need to know about project management - had I read it before entering the field, I believe I would have assumed that the field was worse than useless.
Unfortunately, it, and its updates, are required if you expect to pass the expensive exam for either CAPM or PMP.
I would definitely order again if given a choice.
Appreciate the speed of its arrival as well as the quality of service.

Worst read ever and their graphs are awful. Recommend to read it together with Shwalbe's Information Technology Project Management 6th Ed.Published 16 months ago by NCS10
It serves its purpose of providing info on the PMP certification course. It's just a shame that it becomes outdated so quickly.Published 17 months ago by Brittany Matheson
