Introduction

I am currently studying for my PMP exam. Therefore, I will not review the book from an existing Certified Project Manager point of view, but from a student perspective that is working on this exam to pass.

In addition to that, in my evaluation, I may not be able to comment on how these questions are relevant to the actual PMP exam question, as I have never taken the test before, but I can provide strong feedback about how this helped me to study for the exam.

Overview of Book’s Structure

  • This book (more of Questions and Answers to study PMP exam) organized very well from the beginning. It follows the same index of PMBOK guide ( Sixth Edition)
  • Is there any option to label the sections? Sometimes, it is very hard to go back and forth between questions sections.

Highlights

  • The book is structured to follow the chapters easily which aligns with PMBOK Sixth edition.
  • Answers are very detailed and also refers page numbers in PMBOK Sixt edition for more detailed information.
  • The metal spirals make it easier to navigate between questions and answers.
  • The book size 9 inches by 4 inches makes it easier to carry and gives a sensation of Q&A book.

Highlights: What I liked!

I like the book that it not only provides the answers to the questions but also refers to page and section numbers on PMBOK guide ( Sixth Edition)  to get more information. It is a great method for exam takers to read the section again where they answer the question wrong.
