Rita. I found the PMBOK nearly impossible to read!

I also used the PM Prepcast Exam Simulator, provided by my employer.
Hi George,

Those were Rita's book and PMBoK itself.

Nurlan
I think majority of inputs rhyme with Rita and PMBOK

In my opinion the best one was PMBOK
I agree but if you add some additional material with examples it helps in preparation

Hi George,

i do assume we are talking about PMP prep, right?
If so, than the combination out of Rita's book and HEad First in addition to the PMBOK Guide would be my choice.
I have done it this way ...

Regards,

Markus
I fully endorse Markus
I used an app (pocket prep) every night for 1 hour after my boot camp. I copied the process grid and formulas I would use on my scrap paper each day as well to memorize. The week of the exam I used the "exam cram" book. I did about 3/4 of the book using the prescribed approach and the last 1/3 the day of the exam. I entered the exam and did my brain dump on the scrap paper. I passed on my first try.

I am also a Registered Nurse. I think that the PMP exam was harder than my boards, because they are testing a way of thinking where this is straight memorization.

1) Rita Mulcahy: PMP Exam Prep
2) Kim Heldman: PMP: Project Management Professional Exam Study Guide 7th Edition
I like the visual way to study, by watching online videos explaining a certain concept, then to read about that in a book, so to have my PMI-SP, I watched Vanina Mangano online videos, with PMI-SP Exam Success, Boot Camp manual from Crosswind
Hands down, Rita Mulcahy's PMP® Exam Prep. Would not have passed the exam without it.
