I passed my PM exam yesterday after 3 long months of revising. Reading this book day in day out. Couldn't recommend this book enough.

Easy to read and has you hooked from the first chapter, so much so that you actually enjoy reading it!

Pros:
- Flow of chapters and ease of read
- Questions after each chapter
- Term definitions well described
- The PMI-isms, definitely bearing in mind whilst you read through
- Different types of questions
- All the exam tips - WOW
- All the mathematical concepts and calculations are well explained with plenty of practice. Rita says in the book that you will appreciate these questions in the exam and I certainly did. THANK YOU

Cons (my personal experience)
- I personally couldnt understand the difference of when to use the PERT formula or the standard triangular one, even after the explanation in the book and the PMBOK guide. I struggled in the practice q's and in the real exam. There was actually about 4 or 5 questions on this so i was getting quite frustrated in the exam
- Chapter Three - (the framework) was mind boggling. I had a go at doing the chart a couple of times and failed miserably as i didn't understand most of the concepts and why they were done in a certain order. HOWEVER, after giving up on the chapter, and completing the book everything made perfect sense and i later went back and smashed it.
- The question examples were very wordy, i found in the exam that was not the case. Well not as bad as the book

My advice to those preparing

1. Purchase this book
2. Read each chapter and highlight important things. Especially gaps in your knowledge and exam tips.

I would recommend Rita's PMP Exam prep book if you have limited time to devote to passing the PMP exam.

Rita's PMP Exam prep book is written to help you become a better project manager from the PMI point of view, and as a result, makes it easier to pass the PMP exam. From my experience, memorizing to pass the PMP exam is equivalent to "accepting a medium risk of passing".

Three key takeaways from Rita's PMP Exam prep book:
* Adapt the book to your reading style; not vice versa.
* Develop the Rita's PMP Exam prep book "PMI-ism" thinking as you read along; I believe it is a fail-safe option to passing the PMP exam.
* Practise answering questions by asking "What process (e.g. Develop Charter, Define Scope etc.) does this question relate to?" as it enhances the probability that you select the right answer.

PS Make sure you use the latest edition of Rita's PMP Exam prep book!

I read this book cover to cover when prep'ing for my PMP (which happily I passed first time) and as I read it I thought it kinda did itself a dis-service...... it's not just a great book for PMP prep, it's actually a really good book for a new PM or even an experienced one..... yes we do tend to forget a lot of this stuff and just get into a "this is the way we do it" syndrome.

I highly recommend it, and ok it's not the cheapest PM book, but I reckon it's a good investment for any PM.

Having used this book as an additional course aid to passing my PMP exam, I must thoroughly recommend it. The book is logically laid out and structured by knowledge area, containing useful tips and practical exercises throughout plus relevant exam practice questions at the end of each section. I achieved top grades in four of the five exam domains at first attempt which I could not have managed without the use of this book. Essential study aid for your PMP exam.

I used this book and found it so handy. A well organised book, both from a exam and knowledge perspective.
I cleared my exam in the first attempt. Knowledge areas like Cost, Time and Procurement are the ones that I have extensively studied from this book.
I enjoyed studying this book as part of my preparation for PMP.

Thoroughly enjoyed reading through this book! This is all the PMP exam prep material you'll ever need. I found the material so well explained, so easy to understand. Read through it once (twice or thrice recommended); sat my PMP exam; PASSED at first attempt. Thanks Rita!
