1.0 out of 5 stars Not Ready for Prime Time 24 May 2012
By M. C. Worthington - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The authors of this book claim alignment / correlation to the Project Management Body of Knowledge Guide (PMBOK0 in reality, EVM sections do not align with current terminology used by the PMI and other reference material. Had this textbook not been required for a class, I would have returned it ASAP when it was apparent that this book needs serious updates.

3.0 out of 5 stars The little book of Project Management 24 Jun 2012
By William Scott - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was required to have this particular book for a course I am taking. This is the single most expensive textbook I have ever purchased for something so thin. If there were a ton of pages, it would not have been so bad...but again I am ripped off on the price. The content is inline with current beliefs and thoughts about the subject matter, it is well written, but if you do not have College level reading and comprehension, this is not the book for you. The book is very detailed and the end of chapter summaries again are very detailed-but you need to actually read the chapter to know what the summary is about.

1.0 out of 5 stars Classic University Book 25 Feb 2013
By M. Piippo - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If you are a project manager looking to improve on your craft this won't help. Overloaded with general and generic advice. I felt as if I was reading a cover bands version of the PMBOK.

If you are a student and paying for your own education, I'm sorry the system has failed you. The cursory overview this book provides isn't worth the amount of cash you are about to spend on it. A decent hour to two hour lecture could better prepare you for the real world.

Caveat: The CD with MS Project on it is for a 60-day trial version, not the real thing. This is not clear in the online description.
