This is the one - if you want to understand Prince2 or take either the foundation or practitioner exams. However be warned most courses will supply this book so if you are looking to take a course and then the exams you'd be better off with the small handheld guide and/or alternative books as this book will be provided as part of the course (please check with your proposed provider!).
Quite a difficult book to read and assimilate but once the concepts have got in your head it is THE reference book. Often used after the course to support specific areas.
Once you've seen others with the book and taken the exams you'll soon understand why everyone's copies have tabs sticking out all over them!
Good luck with your studies...

I rate this book highly because it enabled me to pass the Prince2 Foundation exam. It is comprehensive and authoritative reference manual which can be refered to in the open-book, 'Practitioner' exam. It is a cost-effective confidence-booster to instructer-led training, as long as one has some exposure to Project Management in the work-place.

Although I have not taken either of the Prince2 exams I have used a range of Prince2 techniques in a number of commercial organisations I have worked in. I have found the reality of project governnance in commercial software development organisations is to adopt a pragmatic approach to using methodologies rather than following a prescriptive approach.

This book is therefore the ideal reference guide for use in either government organisations where it is the accepted standard or for managers like me who pick and choose the elements of Prince2 (and other methodologies) that are most appropriate to them in their environments. If you fall into this latter category the appendices are particualrly useful. Whichever category you fall into, this book is laid out with a logical flow that reflects the lifecycle of projects.

Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2

I needed to get appropriate funding for my PRINCE 2 exams but was left short of time.
The training provider wouldn't send out the pre course material without the funding.
I found this on Amazon 2nd hand book store and it arrived within the week.

Prior to this I had downloaded the PRINCE 2 APP on my partners iphone which got me enthused as I was getting every test question right.

I am half way through the book already and this is sealing my existing knowledge of PRINCE.
It is well written, easy to understand and reiterates what we already put into practice in the work place.

I am both very impressed with this book and with Amazon as I will be walking away with both PRINCE 2 AND ITIL certification this side of Christmas!!! :)

Watch this space and I will keep you updated with relevant comments.

Best wishes everyone.

Jayne

Was useful and great value but be aware that there is a newer version available. So OK for reference and background but later versions might give better guidance towards latest exam and qualification requirements

PRINCE2, or PRojects IN Controlled Environments, is a project management methodology. It covers the management, control and organisation of a project.

PRINCE2(tm) was launched by the UK Government in 1996 and has since become the most widely used project management method worldwide. By the beginning of 2007 there were more than 250,000 certified Project Managers who had sat and passed the PRINCE2(tm) practitioner exam. Practitioners can now be found in all 7 continents (yes, even in Antarctica).

PRINCE2(tm) is now more than a just manual. When people say "we are using PRINCE2(tm)" they don't mean that they are using the manual. They mean that they direct, manage or participate on a project which follows (some of) the processes, components and techniques embodied in the manual. PRINCE2(tm) has become `a way' of delivering projects. It has become a community, comprising:

* The UK Government (it is owned by the Office of Government Commerce - OGC)

* A documented method (the manual, now in its 4th edition), available in several languages

* An accreditation body (APM Group Ltd)

* 120+ accredited training organisations, providing training around the globe in 17 languages

* 15+ accredited consulting organisations

* Software tools (There were 52 tools supporting PRINCE2(tm) listed in the last PM Software Tool sourcebook)

* An official user group (The Best Practice User Group - BPUG) and numerous others covering more than 10 countries

* Several on-line discussion forums dedicated to PRINCE2(tm)

* More than 1.6 million pages on the world-wide-web which reference PRINCE2(tm); much more than any other method.

The manual is the 'old' version and therefore not much use as the current version of the manual is what I will require to study and pass the exam based on the current implementation of prince2. The seller should make clear that this is the 2005 issue.
