Learn the latest principles and certification objectives in The PMBOK Guide, Fourth Edition, in a unique and inspiring way with Head First PMP . The second edition of this book helps you prepare for the PMP certification exam using a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. You'll find a full-length sample exam included inside the book.

More than just proof of passing a test, a PMP certification means that you have the knowledge to solve most common project problems. But studying for a difficult four-hour exam on project management isn't easy, even for experienced project managers. Drawing on the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, Head First PMP offers you a multi-sensory experience that helps the material stick, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep.

This book will help you:

  • Learn PMP's underlying concepts to help you understand the PMBOK principles and pass the certification exam with flying colors
  • Get 100% coverage of the latest principles and certification objectives in The PMBOK Guide, Fourth Edition, including two new processes: Collect Requirements and Identify Stakeholders
  • Make use of a thorough and effective preparation guide with hundreds of practice questions and exam strategies
  • Explore the material through puzzles, games, problems, and exercises that make learning easy and entertaining


Head First PMP puts project management principles into context to help you understand, remember, and apply them -- not just on the exam, but also on the job.

Product Description

About the Author

Jennifer Greene, has spent the past 15 years or so building software for many different kinds of companies. She's worked for small start-ups and some huge companies along the way. She's built software test teams and helped lots of companies diagnose and deal with habitual process problems so that they could build better software. Since her start in software test and process definition, she's branched out into development management and project management. She's currently managing a big development team for a global media company and she's managed just about every aspect of software development through her career.

Jennifer founded Stellman & Greene Consulting with Andrew Stellman in 2003, initially to serve the scientific and academic community. They have worked in a wide range of industries including finance, telecommunications, media, non-profit, entertainment, natural language processing, science and academia. They do speaking engagements, provide training on development practices, manage teams, and build software. Together, they've written two highly acclaimed books on project management (Head First PMP and Applied Software Project Management), Head First C#, and most recently just finished up Beautiful Teams.

For more information about Jennifer, Andrew Stellman, and their books, visit http://www.stellman-greene.com.

Andrew Stellman, despite being raised a New Yorker, has lived in Pittsburgh twice. The first time was when he graduated from Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science, and then again when he and Jenny were starting their consulting business and writing their first project management book for O'Reilly. When he moved back to his hometown, his first job after college was as a programmer at EMI-Capitol Records--which actually made sense, since he went to LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts to study cello and jazz bass guitar. He and Jenny first worked together at that same financial software company, where he was managing a team of programmers. He's since managed various teams of software engineers, requirements analysts, and led process improvement efforts. Andrew keeps himself busy eating an enormous amount of string cheese and Middle Eastern desserts, playing music (but video games even more), studying taiji and aikido, having a girlfriend named Lisa, and owing a pomeranian.

4.0 out of 5 stars Just passed PMP with this as main source 2 Jan 2012
Format:Paperback
Well structured with a good mix of reading, example exam questions and other tasks. Good practical language and examples, all in all an excellent foundation builder towards the PMP exam. Use the PMBOK guide in addition and your own experience and do more difficult exams online in order to pass PMP.
A couple of errors in exam answers in the book takes it down from 5 to 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for passing the PMP exam 7 Sep 2011
By Mr V
Format:Paperback
This was a fantastic book to accompany the PMBOK guide. I have just passed the PMP exam first time - and prior to syllabus change in Aug and this book was extremely useful. The hints, reminders, questions and of course the sample questions in the back (which are also available for free on the web !) were very apt for the actual exam. The actual exam questions were more like those in this book. The best way I'd found was to understand each of the 42 process, what were they trying to achieve and their objectives from the PMBOK guide, learn the inputs, tools & techniques and outputs, then supplement with this book.
Yes, there are a couple of errors in the book, but they are easy to find. Also, this version was printed in grey scale. If they had printed some parts of it in colour then it will be easier for the brain to remember some of the images !

A great book for passing the exam.
