The PMP® Exam

by Roland Buresund last modified 2009-09-20 17:35

Rating: ******* (Good)

What can I say? It is logical, well structured, pedagogical, explains a lot, etc.

The only negative thing is that it is big, but it is supposed to cover a big subject, so I can't blame it.

In short, a very good study book for the PMP exam, in my view, as well as a good book on project management in general.
