HASH(0xa83051e0) out of 5 stars The good and the bad 14 April 2009
By Jeremy Chatfield - Published on
Format: Paperback
The information this book provided was excellent. The examples provided in each section where a big help in explaining what was being taught. However, I must say that the editing of this book was poor. Many times I tried using the index to reference material from previous chapters only to find that the index was badly mislabeled. Also several of the teaching aids were mislabeled as to where to reference the material, leading to time wasted searching for the right pages.

HASH(0x99f7942c) out of 5 stars Excellent Project Management foundation 29 Jan. 2008
By WDNS - Published on
Format: Paperback
It is the best book I've seen as an introduction to project management and the instructor material for the classroom is excellent! Makes for a great foundation book both in and out of a classroom. Exercises at the end of the chapter reinforce learnings and the use of case studies open up the readers abiltiy to practice and apply what they have read. I've used many other books while teaching project management but this is by far the most liked by students. The author has done an excelent job of writing for the novice on the journey to expert.

This a both a great textbook for the classroom as well as an easy to read reference book for the casual project manager. As an educator and PMP prep certification course instructor I have seen students gain a solid foundation of the terminology, process groups and knowledge area's they need before taking the next step in preparing to take the PMP exam. An excellent project management foundation book.

I use this book in project management courses at three universities/colleges.

HASH(0x99f7948c) out of 5 stars very hands-on 3 July 2008
By Angelina NL - Published on
Format: Paperback
We (International business school, University applied science, Netherlands) decided to start a new major and one of the new modules was to be: project management, a 7-weeks' 5 ECTS introduction course.
This book (1st edition, but 2nd edition is pretty much the same) is very suitable for this purpose: it offers a very structured approach to PM (based on the US PMI standards). It's straight forward, lots of examples, lots of extra teaching materials, uses an on-going case (for all PM-phases, not like the other books, separate for each). Almost all my students (completely) agreed to: "Is clear and understandable", "Addresses all major aspects of project management", "Is suitable for the course".
What makes this book really added value is the instructions book for MS project (it takes students just a couple of hours to get a good introduction); the project simulation from Fissure -really nice, especially as you can run it just in a couple of hours and students still get the feeling they ran the project-. Pity it is no longer included in the 2nd edition.
We even had time left to run a small project (create a project plan for a major event). And teachers: don't worry, there is still something left to explain in class like EVM and critical path analysis (which is not dealt with in-depth).
Summarised: if you're looking for a hands-on book for your introduction PM course, this is the one!
HASH(0x9a0d3f24) out of 5 stars Excellent PM Foundation Textbook for the classroom 24 Jun. 2008
By WDNS - Published on
Format: Paperback
I found this to be an excellent project management foundation textbook. It covers all the areas at a good pace for the PMP exam which is why I use it for project management introductory courses. The PMP Prep courses I have taught for many years tend to have a high dropout rate as the students become overwhelmed with learning the language of the PMBOK. Since using this book in a foundation course the students have been more successful in achieving their PMP goals. Good pace and excellent practical steps.
It's a great text for learning the language of project managers and the process's we follow.
HASH(0x9a36efb4) out of 5 stars Prodject Management 19 Oct. 2010

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wasn't very happy with this text book. For topics discussed, I found more well written, clearer, and entertaining information for free via Google for free. The book was originally sold with a CD, which probably costs more than a download. however, because I bought the book for used, of course the CD was missing.
The publisher would have a better product to sell if a download section were included on the web site.
