3.0 out of 5 stars Errors in CPIM Exercises 28 Feb. 2013
By Stephan Pire - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Mainly for ATP (Chapter 7):

Errors in the formulas and questions are misleading. We spent awful lot of time trying to figure out how to calculate the wrong value

1.0 out of 5 stars Rife with errors -- authors should be embarrassed 10 Mar. 2014
By Cara Lerner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is filled with errors. Both mathematical and grammatical. I am studying for the CPIM exam and I don't feel like I can even trust the answer key anymore. The authors should be embarrassed and APICS should re-evaluate their endorsement of this book. It is completely unacceptable that a test reference be this sloppy. Terrible.

2.0 out of 5 stars not a good book for freshman 29 Mar. 2014
By Chao Z. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
the book try to explain every concept through a complex way, which could be done easily and clearly. If you read another book "Introduction to materials management" before, you will understand what I say.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good view on concepts, lacks the detail. Several errors both grammatically and in the calculations. 26 Nov. 2013
By Max Cambron Fletcher - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book while giving a good idea for the overall concepts, lacks a lot of the detail asked in the CPIM Module 2 test. It's listed as the required text but with the slew of errors in the calculations and end of chapter questions, I was disappointed. I read the entire book, took extensive notes and just barely passed.

2.0 out of 5 stars and bad editing. One example of bad editing has the ... 21 Mar. 2015
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought this book to study for the Manufacturing Planning and Control module for the APICS CPIM test. It was listed as one of the primary references in the Exam Content Manual.

If this wasn't one of the primary references for the exam, I would not read it.

I find the explanations of concepts to be overly complex in some cases, and lacking in other areas. I've seen concepts presented more clearly in other learning materials before, such as an online class I took from Michigan State University, as well as Introduction to Materials Management by Tony Arnold. If I hadn't learned some of the concepts from other materials, I would be struggling to understand what the authors in this book were trying to teach.

This book also has grammatical issues, awkward writing in some places, and bad editing. One example of bad editing has the first line of a paragraph state the following: "...we show a plan that maintains five days of supply at the end of each month." and the last line of a paragraph state the following "...that results in a five-week supply of inventory at the end of each month."

This is an example of awkward writing: "...authorize spending for changes in production/procurement rate changes". The authors should have omitted the first "changes" and left the sentence as "...authorize spending for production/procurement rate changes".

I find myself tempted to gloss over some material so I don't have to deal with the author's confusing explanations of concepts in some places.

I never had this problem when reading Introduction for Materials Management by Tony Arnold for the Basics of Supply Chain Management exam module for the APICS CPIM.
