5.0 out of 5 stars Best Book for Teaching Project Management 22 Aug. 2012
By Julie S. Erndt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I must say this is one of the best books I have found to teach an introductory course in project management. It is flexible enough to use for both undergraduate and graduate courses, online or face-to-face. The fourth edition follows the latest PMBOK Guide, so it's a great resource for anyone planning to take the PMP exam. (The main difference is the addition of a tenth knowledge area - stakeholder management.) I really like the new Video Highlights feature, the 60-day trial of MindView software for creating mind maps and Gantt charts, and the new fixer upper case study and discounts for simulation software listed in Appendix C. This book goes beyond just preparing students for an exam by including lots of information on"how" to perform various project management tasks. I really like the way a concept is explained and then an example is provided on how to apply that concept. There are several exercises and team projects to help reinforce student learning. There are also many real-world references showing how organizations do things right and wrong in project management, plus xk cd cartoons and the new videos to lighten things up. Yes, there are dozens of introductory project management books on the market, but this one is comprehensive, easy-to-read, includes a great free Web site ([...]) with templates, interactive quizzes, Jeopardy-like games, etc., plus the price is right! Why should we make our students spend over $100 on a dry textbook when they can get this one and actually read it for less money? The appendices with guides to using Project 2010 and At Task (a leading web-based PM software) are excellent. The instructor materials are also outstanding, and the author is very responsive to instructorinputs. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Textbook and How To Guide 13 Nov. 2012
By D. R. James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have used Kathy's textbooks at Lone Star College since 2008. We have had multiple communications about teaching project management over the years and she asked me to be a reviewer for this latest edition. The text is aligned with the Project Management Institute (PMI) PMBOK Guide, 5th Edition (based on the draft), to be released in December 2012. I was also a reviewer of the PMBOK Guide, 5th Edition draft.

In following the five Process Groups from Initiating through Closing, the text gives students and readers a logical progression through a case study project with examples, great illustrations, and thought-provoking assignments. Appendices provide introductions to MS Project 2010 and AtTask as well as a source of more detailed resources.

Kathy provides a website with supporting information for readers as well as a secure website for instructors.

I highly recommend the book as a college-level text as well as a source of project management training for organizations.

2.0 out of 5 stars If there was a way to read it like the book 9 Oct. 2014
By Anthony W. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The information is all there, but there are no page numbers to follow class instructions (I had an assignment for class, the instructions was too follow pages and work thru the steps and take a snap shot of what was completed) It is hard to follow without page numbers.

If there was a way to read it like the book, showing a full page at a time.

Hope this was helpful...

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice flow 2 April 2015
By rpm507 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I bought this for a PM class. I like the level of detail and examples. It doesn't go into mind numbing detail but topics are addressed multiple times throughout the text. Nice flow. It uses one project as the primary example but there are other examples which are helpful.

By Gobbler Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Well structured book covering stats well for a business leaning. Needs to move a bit away from the old techniques and focus on modern implementations.
