PMBOK Version 4 was initially released in December 2008. An updated version was released in May 2009.
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.

This book makes a cumbersome and convoluted mess out of something which should be logical and streamlined.

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've been involved in program and project management for the last 10 yrs. I studied this guide because it is the professional standard for project management (project management institute standard). The book, however, is badly structured, schemes and diagrams could be clearer. It's hard to read through 50 pages without falling asleep. There are no case studies, most of the text I find is structured in bullet points, and diagrams and schemes are pretty awful. It is a very boring book. I find the Field Guide to Project Management (D.I Cleland, from J.Wiley and Sons Inc) a much, much better book to fully comprehend all practical aspects of project management. If you buy the PMBOK book, be sure to buy other program management books as well. The PMBOK supplies you with theoretical knowledge on project management, but with little practical knowledge.

Worst read ever and their graphs are awful. Recommend to read it together with Shwalbe's Information Technology Project Management 6th Ed.
