5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book. Really helps to obtain the PMP qualification, 5 Dec 2007
This review is from: Head First PMP: A Brain-Friendly Guide to Passing the Project Management Professional Exam (Paperback)
If you are taking the PMP exam anytime soon I strongly recommend you buy this book. During my recent exam prep I used a variety of sources and downloads as well as mock exams and found myself enlightened and frustrated in equal measure. Getting near the exam date it was getting a bit nervy....

At that point I heard about the Head First PMP book and read the 'free' online chapter. Looked very interesting so (due to the time) I signed up to safari online books on a months subscription and read the book cover to cover. I would say that this book helped me more than any other resource due to the simple terms, engaging style and at the end of it, a number of concepts I had been struggling with 'clicked'.

I downloaded the Head First mock exam and found it more straightforward than the others and scored 82%, boosting my confidence and validating the usefulness of the source material.

Whilst reading the book online was okay, I would have much preferred a print copy and urge anyone in my position (but with a bit more time!) to buy the book from Amazon. It would have been far easier to sit in bed reading it than pouring over it in PDF form!

Seriously, this is the best revision resource by far for the PMP exam and all credit have to go to the authors, who have created a book in such an engaging style it has to be seen to be believed. It would have almost made PMP revision fun, if it hadn't been for my pre-exam nerves!

Oh, and I passed the exam of course!
