Product description...

• Relevant, concise and complete • Your one-stop guide to help you pass the PMP exam in your FIRST attempt

Why you need this PMP guide:

• Coverage of the 100% of the exam content.
• Lots of figures and tables for faster preparation.
• ITTO-made-easy with diagrams and built-in text
• Simple explanations for difficult concepts
• Synopsis and formulas section … for reference before the PMP exam
• Easy-to-follow layout
• 400+ sample questions with detailed explanations.
• Full-length practice exam.
• Tips for practical project management at your workplace.
• How-to for Microsoft Project (MPP) application.

This book is a must-have for those preparing for PMP certification. It is different than existing books because we believe that PMP preparation can be quick and efficient. We have read the existing books and taken the PMP exam and we have found that most books contain unnecessary content.

• Reduce your preparation time: There are several books in the market that have pages of painful and irrelevant text that would just be a waste of your time. This book has text that is concise and relevant for the exam.
• Figures and tables: There are 200+ figures and tables in the book. When text is needed to explain the figure, the text is embedded into the figure, rather than forcing you to read long paragraphs and pages of commentary to find relevant material.
• Personalized, conversational style: When possible, we use conversational style to make for easier reading.
• Active learning: We believe that learning is best when the reader is involved (instead of doing a show and tell). Wherever applicable (e.g. for schedule, cost, quality, risk, procurement), there are workbook-style exercises.
• Examples: You will find lots of examples followed by its underlying concept or generalized step-by-step procedure. This sequence makes it easier to understand concepts.


I have studied various PMP guides and tutorials in the market. But this book is different, stands outs and would be the best companion guide to the PMBOK. Difficult concepts are presented in a style that is easy to follow. The content is concise and supported by illustrative figures and tables. This will save you from wasting your time on irrelevant or copious content. In my opinion, this is the ONLY book you will need to pass the PMP exam.

Other printed books and online sites have questions that are easier than the PMP exam and some wrong and answers and explanations. The 400+ questions are at the same level of rigor as you will find in the PMP exam.

I wish I had this guide when I prepared for the PMP exam.
