5.0 out of 5 stars The mature Guide for Project Managers worldwide
The Project Team for this edition as well as the volunteers did a splendid job again!
This, 5th edition is more readable from previous ones and more complete. It is aligned with the ISO 21500 Standard for Project Management and also aligned with other PMI's standards like the Standard for Program Management 3rd ed. and the Standard for Portfolio Management 3rd...

3.0 out of 5 stars fix table/diagram resolution please...
Main criticism is that some of the in-page diagrams/tables are unreadable even when expanded. I had to refer to the paper copy several times.

This review is from: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (Pmbok Guide) - 5th Edition (Paperback)
The Project Team for this edition as well as the volunteers did a splendid job again!
This, 5th edition is more readable from previous ones and more complete. It is aligned with the ISO 21500 Standard for Project Management and also aligned with other PMI's standards like the Standard for Program Management 3rd ed. and the Standard for Portfolio Management 3rd ed.
A new chapter / Knowledge area has been created "Project Stakeholder Management" by splitting the "Project Communication Management" chapter of the previous edition and adding emphasis on "Stakeholder engagement". The processes now are increased to 47 from 42 of the previous edition. However the naming is much more consistent and easy to remember. So, even if the number is higher the complexity is reduced.
All the chapters of the previous edition (4th) have been improved and seem more complete and readable.
Since this book is the essential read for the PMP and CAPM certifications, it is important to note that this edition covers more useful information for the exam - previously found mostly on exam preparation books. So the readers of this edition get a more complete set of tools and approaches.
Even if you are not planning to be certified this is an extremely useful book - guide for practicing Project Managers and managers, since it covers practically all the aspects of the actions and skills for someone to successfully transform an idea into reality.

2.0 out of 5 stars Painful, 4 Aug 2013

I found this unreadable. It might be useful as a reference book but as a text book to sit a read to gain knowledge it's appalling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent condition - as listed, 27 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (Pmbok Guide) - 5th Edition (Paperback)
This item was listed as 'new' and when received the pages and binding were crisp and perfect. I've not yet had a chance to read through it and therefore cannot comment on the value of the content, but insofar as the service provided by the seller it was top notch. Customer Service was available via email and responded quickly. The information they offered was helpful and friendly. I would definitely recommend!

4.0 out of 5 stars Too much structure in some areas, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (Pmbok Guide) - 5th Edition (Paperback)
Does the job I bought it for but is quite repetitive, puts too much structure in the simpler areas of Project Management. The binding could be better, I am expecting pages to fall out soon.
