Best Option for PMP Preparation is combination of PMBOK+RITA+HEAD First". We can also complement these with any other short hand notes by PMP gurus.

Partha - thanks for your input.

I myself didn't used it as my main book, but I consider it to have "a different approach", and yes, I consider it very usefull to have better possibility to pass the PMP examn.

As for RMP, in this case it was my main book for reference.

Partha - So that's was your main reference and the only one? It is interesting, because it worked for you for a reason, it may also work for others if you want to share your expericience.

Hi George, Some may not have used the best because they just used what was suggested to them. Also, popularity of a book biases opinions. So there could be 2 different Q:
1. What book did aspirant use to pass the exam?
2. What (in the PMP's opinion) is the best literature?

Malik - I agree. Thanks for your input.

Your statement shows that you've seen what many people haven't. There are so many un-popular good books out there. The reason might be that the PMP is such a complex exam and takes such a hard preparation, that people tends to go for what "have worked" for others.

Malik - So what's your response to your own statement?
1. What book did you use to pass the exam?
2. What book do you consider is the best literature?

George,

1. I did my certification long time ago when there were only 2 books in the market. Practically speaking I did not use any reference book. I followed only PMBOK Guide.
2. Every person is different. What is good for me, may not be good for you. I wrote a detailed article for comparing popular books on the subject. You can refer to that article here -
