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...
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.
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.
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.Read more ›

No it is an earlier version, so returned with postage from my payment. Should be free return insread. Need to improve.Published on 24 Mar. 2014 by Yasmin
This book is huge therefore I assume that everything Prince2 related is in it.
Unfortunately the book was heavily used, food stains on the pages, bended cover and pages. Read more
This is standard reading for what is a bit of a dry subject. However the book is essential for the course.Published on 8 April 2011 by Mr. I. S. Waddell
This second version of the book is very much better than the first edition. It's almost readable from cover to cover. It is too expensive thoughPublished on 4 Feb. 2011 by Jba Knox
