PMBOK, Rita, PMP Prep Sean Whitaker, Aileen Ellis
Hi - I was trying to find an old PDF of "PMP Prep Sean Whitaker, Aileen Ellis" or something online to see the type of book, but didn't find any.

Has anyone else have used Sean W. and Aileeen E. to prepare, any sample PDF chapter around to test quality.

If it is good I might even suggest it to the students.

Hi George,
Have you taken the PMP exam yet? I'm studying for it too and purchased the latest Aileen Ellis - PMP Exam Simplified 5th Edition (5.1). Not happy about it. It's full of noticeable spelling and grammar mistakes (e.g. wrote "accessing" instead of "assessing" which changes the entire dynamics of the paragraph). In one page - I even noticed an editor's note ("move one line up" beside a sentence). Might as well just re-read the PMBOK guide over and over again because the Aileen Ellis book forces you to read the PMBOK guide anyways to figure out lacking info. or point in most topics. Some of the exam strategies provided in the first 10 pages might be helpful and that's about it. I got the RMC book now (latest Rita Mulcahy PMP exam prep book) - much more comprehensive and very well written and explained. I'm going to invest on the PMFastrack (Rita Mulcahy) to practice on questions before taking the test because I'm so jaded with how we manage projects in the real corporate world vs. how the PMBOK guides it. I'm finding a huge difference. Good luck on your studies.

In PMP study plan, Yes PMBOK is the main Reference book. Apart form that you need other books to clarify concepts and lot of simulations to test readiness for the exam. PMP aspirants can pick a couple of books based on their need. To get insight into what work for you based on your professional experience, you can choose a couple of other sources.
