I discovered this book accidentally, my sister had an exam about project management and I was helping her regarding this. it helped me a lot in understanding the strategies, constrain's triangle and the scheme based jobs. The difference between "project, program and portfolio manager" terms together with the "art and science" part were the newest informations I have received.
thanks in advance Kim Heldman!

Kim Heldman’s book is very different from other Exam Prep books. Most of the books follow the PMBOK Guide’s structure and are written Knowledge Area (KA) wise. But, PMP Study Guide by Kim Heldman is written Process Group (PG) wise. It gives a complete coverage of the topics written in the PMBOK Guide but chapters are arranged differently. The book starts with an assessment test. By doing this test, you understand the PMP Exam difficulty level and get to assess yourself. This creates a good found ...more

The book is likely a very good as a resource to study for the PMP exam. I did not intend to sit for the PMP certification when I picked it up - I just wanted to learn more about how to better manage projects and had heard PMP is the top certification.

The first two chapters were very useful in defining what is a project and a 30,000 foot overview of what the stages in a project are. The following chapters broke down for me with too much minutia of project management, complicated processes meant t

It covers all the major topics in PMP certification. The book also comes with a CD containing audio files with condensed information on all the chapters. This is very convenient. The quality of the exams was not so good, as I felt that there were a few mistakes here and there, and so that made me lose some confidence in them. I would advise using this book to get started with the learning and using the Mulcahy book for test samples.

It was OK. Glad I read it instead of just relying on the PMBOK, since it provided a narrative guide that has been helpful in preparing for the PMP. However, I didn't always appreciate the author's nod-nod, wink-wink personal anecdotes, and I do think I encountered some errors in the practice test items. (Could also be that I just didn't get it.)

Classic book to prepare for the PMP Exam. It is, together with the Rita Mulcahy book, one of the most popular books for those with interest in the exam.

Clássico livro para a preparação do Exame PMP. É, juntamente com o livro da Rita Mulcahy, dos livros mais populares para quem tem interesse no exame.

I got this book in order to prepare for the PMP exam. It does provide a lot of information in the subject (I found it very comprehensive), and the author describes her personal experience in the field and best practices while discussing the content. I believe it's a worthwhile guide if you like reading and want to get a comprehensive overview before going into the PMP exam.

a must book for any organization that tackles projects of any size. Even small projects are worth taking a look at how they are best done. Its better to know how best to organize, plan, and manage a project than to guess IME.
