This book is such a good text when working toward the CAPM or PMP. The PMBOK is great, but more of a reference point to me. This book is an easy read and gives you an easier read. I am thankful that I read this book because I passed my CAPM on the first try! Definitely recommend to anyone wanting to learn on their own or wanting something to make a PM class a little easier.

Note: this book corresponds and references the PMBOK.

I actually prepared for my project management exam with this book. I must say it is sometimes too beginner. I am pretty sure there are better options if you really think of focusing on project management practically. However, it is not a complete waste of time. It still added some value to the initial knowledge base. But don''t rely on this book only.

Decent content, but could use some copyediting
Reviewed in the United States on November 14, 2018
The content is pretty good. Decent real life examples. I love XKCD comics but it feels forced having them as cutesy "examples" in this book. I find the typos and inconsistencies very distracting and frustrating. Feels like they didn''t have a professional copyeditor... See more

It was a little more costly to purchase outright, but the rentals would have made it come well into my term, but 60 bucks or whatever I paid for a university textbook is pretty reasonable all things considered!

Dislike the method of presentation
Reviewed in the United States on April 27, 2021
Topic organization within chapters was confusing/unintuitive. Long unbroken blocks of text and inconsistent bolding/underlining of key terms. Emphasis boxes are too dark and need more spacing. Struggles to be concise on simple explanations.

I''m taking an intense Project Management Course and this book was required. If you want to study for the PMI designation exam then I do NOT RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. It''s a good book to understand the basic concepts of project management and easy to read but the practice quizzes are nothing like the practice quizzes for the PMI exam. This book is missing A LOT of concepts and definitions that you may come across during the PMI designation exam. Buy the PMBOK guide instead (no need to buy the latest version.. save a bunch of money and buy last year''s or the year before version.

It''s good. It''s written in an easy-to-understand manner with examples to illustrate the sections. But I must say that it needs another round or two of editing, plus the companion website needs major re-work and when I checked it out I could not find a lot of the resources...See more

But I must say that it needs another round or two of editing, plus the companion website needs major re-work and when I checked it out I could not find a lot of the resources the book mentions. But this book is probably a better beginner''s option than the actual PMI PMBOK Guide, which is very, very dry.

dont get it unless you are taking the corresponding course
Reviewed in Canada on June 19, 2018
as advertised. not the best book. It is basically only useful if you take the u of t course that this is required for. Otherwise, it is a list of lists.

Love it
Reviewed in Canada on February 17, 2020
This textbook was one of the most enjoyable to read of any I’ve come across in post-secondary. This is not due to the content- just the author. She makes a pretty dry subject interesting and easy to get through.

Was sufficient for what I needed
Reviewed in Canada on December 13, 2019
Can''t stand how this book is organized and wasn''t a fan of the author''s writing style, but overall got me through what I needed to get through. PMBOK''s book is way better and if you have to decide between the two, go with the other.
