    I really loved this book. It helped me during my preparation for the PMP exam. I passed from the first time (proficient) in all knowledge areas. The beauty of this book is that you feel that Rita is a friend helping you with the exam preparation. I highly recommend this book for anyone thinking of taking the PMP exam.

    There are many books for learning project management or PMP. But this book definitely aims at passing exam. I had fair amount of knowledge to carry out projects well at my organisation. But passing PMP means giving PMI expected answers which one finds out upon giving first test after first round of learning. I had gone through the entire PMBOK and was scoring in the range of 50 to 60%. That's where I started looking for other preparation sources and I found this book.

I'm writing this review hoping it may help someone looking for feedback. The book helps develop thinking the way PMI does and answer accordingly. It also highlights time to time what good project management means beyond the immediate scope of exam but yes it doesn't fail to highlight any pitfalls. As you read you kind of feel the book is written for you! If you think you are good project manager but are not sure if you will pass the exam in first go then this book is definitely something you can rely on.

    I mean, not a "fun" read, but I'm convinced this book is the reason I passed the PMP. It took me three months of serious study. I read this book twice (and did every activity), and then I skimmed it two more times. I passed on my first attempt, and was even "above target," and I feel like I have Rita to thank for that.

    This was an excellent prep guide for the PMP exam. Following the recommended study plan described in the book enabled me to pass my PMP exam on the first attempt.

The Exam Simulation is a great exam prep tool that will let you know with confidence when you are ready for the exam (or if you are not ready). I read completely through the book twice. I found the PMP Exam Prep book to be well written and organized in a logical fashion. It is written in an easy to understand and follow fashion that is academically appropriate to the topic. This guide includes everything I needed to study to fill the gaps in my project management knowledge without overwhelming me with material. Out of 3 PMP Exam Prep guides that I used (not including the PMBOK), I found Rita’s PMP Exam Prep to be the best by a very wide margin. The closest competitor was the “Head First PMP” (https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/6...). But, I found the “Head First PMP” book to be too “cartoonish” and not written at an appropriate academic level for the topic. I don’t need to have the subject matter “dumbed down” for me to understand it. Lastly, I would recommend checking for the latest revision of this book, as I have heard that there will be a new version of the PMBOK and an updated PMP exam coming soon.

    This is easily the best book for PMP preparation in the market. Particularly those who are experienced project managers and want to learn will like this book. There is a lot of content to digest. So if you prefer to read less but still want to learn sufficient information to pass PMP; you may want to consider other options (e.g. Andy Crowe). However, if you are prepared to read through a lot of information and committed to learning; there is no better book for PMP preparation than this.

    Rita Mulcahy's book is why I passed my PMP exam. I read the obligatory PMBOK, and attended a very engaging and worthwhile bootcamp.

The PMBOK is dry and difficult to read through. This tries to really make the information appealing for the reader/listener. It was difficult to seek back and forth when I wanted to hear something over again. Also, I'd recommend having the actual print version of the book. That was particularly nice to have for a second pass of the "Tricks of the Trade" and or the areas that I knew were my "problem" areas. Overall, I'd absolutely recommend this book to anyone studying for the PMP certification.

    I didn't have time to finish the book prior to taking the PMP exam nbut I did pass the exam the 1st time. I liked this book mch better than the Andy Crowe book. The book uses an understanding approach rather than a memorization approach. It includes tasks for the processes and the sequencing of the tasks. This is an important concept for the exam since many questions ask what should be done first or next. It also includes the material on the exam that's not covered in the PMBOK.

    This was good to get the concepts down. I got frustrated because of some of the contradictions or if you look at the explanations for some of the answers, it restates the answer and doesn't give you a page number or a reason why you got the answer wrong. Don't misunderstand...there are explanations and this book was extremely helpful, but there is definitely room for improvement. This was good to get the concepts down.

    This is by far is one of the best PMP books! Note that on January 2nd, 2021, the new edition will be released, the 10th edition. This book was a great help passing the PMP exam. I've received many emails, and Linkedin questions asking for advices and to detail my PMP experience. I am not going to go through the PMP application, how to fill it, or what are the requirements as these details can be found on the PMI org.

Note that on January 2nd, 2021, the new edition will be released, the 10th edition. This book was a great help passing the PMP exam. I've received many emails, and Linkedin questions asking for advices and to detail my PMP experience. I am not going to go through the PMP application, how to fill it, or what are the requirements as these details can be found on the PMI org. My preparations started by taking the PMP course provided by PMI Montreal Chapter, to accumulate the educational 35 hours required in the application. At the course, we were provided a huge book that contains all the training materials, printed PowerPoint slides, also the book included 2 small 20 questions exams at the end of each chapter and 2 100 simulation exams at the end of the book. Also, we got access to download a digital format of PMBOK, which is the PMP body of knowledge. This book was the most painful book I had to read in my entire life, very technical, boring, and extremely dry, but it is a must to read! I've read this book prior to starting my training course, which made understanding the course materials, acronyms, technical terms, and formulas easier. In the course, they recommended Rita's book as extra resources, which I bought and read, the best thing about Rita's book, it is like a novel book, where you feel Rita is sitting with you and telling you a story, a technical story for sure that is filled with exercises and exams, which I've done all. The beauty of Rita's book, that it oils the big PMP machines, makes everything fall in place, and goes in details explaining a lot of situational situations that I don't think I would've passed the exam without! To prepare for the exam, you will need to study between 200 to 300 hours, depends on how fast, dedicated and FOCUSED you are! There are no short cuts, it is a painful road full of pain and blood, so unless you are 100% committed, then I would suggest you wait until you have the time. It took me approximately 255.5 hours of studying. 40 hours Training course 60 hours to read the PMBOK ‘’the PMI body of knowledge book’’ 111.5 hours to read and do all the exercises in the training book provided in the training course, plus Rita Mulcahy 9th Edition PMP Prep, this book is a must, I wouldn’t have passed without it. 44 hours of practicing exams only It took me almost 5 months to do it, as I am working full time, I tried to dedicate 2 hours of study a day during the week, and 4 hours on the weekend each day. Of course, I couldn’t always do it, sometimes I finish work late, sick, or drained, so I try to make these hours some other days. After you study and you are ready for the exam, book your exam one month away, and keep practicing exams and simulations till the exam day, I took one week off as vacation before the exam and was studying like crazy. This was my experience, I highly recommend Rita's book, I don't think I would've done it without this book. To whoever preparing for the PMP exam, best of luck! you can do it! But remember, no short cuts!

    Completely focussed on the exam, every single line is designed to fetch you an extra mark in the exam. The book also has the depth which is on par with the questions on the exam. I read Head First PMP, but it was more like an introductory text, after reading this text I understood that there is more to PMP i.e. depth wise!

At the end of it you are more confused than you have learned something. You will get something but then you are not sure what you have got! You need to give up clarity to get one step forward towards the exam. I am not sure if it worth it. One more thing about the book - You have to read it once, twice, thrice or more than thrice to just get a hang of it. if you only read it once, you would have gotten yourself more confused than ever. But the book has its bright moments - as in when the book has these cute little pictures, diagrams and Tricks of Trade too!

    This was the 3rd and final book I used to study for the PMP exam. I originally bought it to study years ago and was put off by the negative tone and how daunting they make the test seem. While it is a huge endeavor to undertake, it is doable. I recommend this book to anyone planning to sit for the PMP. It is an excellent resource that touches on points that other books do not.

I would not recommend using this book only or only reading it once. The sheer volume of information needed to take and pass the test cannot be contained in a single read through of one resource. This book has some of the best resources to use to study if you can get through the negative tone. Good Luck!

    This book really helped me understand project management and prepare for the PMP exam. Of course the PMBOK is the foundational text and should be read, but this book is a lot more thorough and engaging.

    Comprehensive overview for the PMP exam with many great tips and instruction. Each chapter also includes a chapter test. Exercises are also spread throughout the book. The book is comprehensive and discusses all the knowledge areas and process groups chronologically and how they relate to each other to paint a full project management picture. This would be perfect if it included a full practice test. This was recommended to me by a PMP.

    I honestly think this was more valuable than the $900 class I paid for. Reading this book made the PMBOK concepts sort of make sense. I LOVED the tools of the trade. I wrote all over this book while I was studying. It is an absolute must-read for the PMP exam. My exam is tomorrow and I'm hoping that this book will make the difference for me to get a passing grade. I honestly think this was more valuable than the $900 class I paid for.

    Rita's PMP Exam Prep is a good second book (Head First PMP was a good first) for studying for the PMP exam. The exercises were good and really focused on helping you with the exam. I ran out of time before the exam so I skipped around a little to the areas I felt I was weakest in. I think it was a little more jargon (which you need also) than Head First so I'm glad I read the other one first to get the concepts.

    One of the best study guides to prepare for the PMP exam I came across. Focused notes and sample exam questions clearly illustrate the nature of the exam content. This book helps you learn the PMBOK content while also preparing you for the gauntlet that is this tricky exam. Pair with the RITA online exam simulator and flashcards and you'll be set to succeed.

    Great book for exam prep. Read the PMBOK chapter, then this and ot helped a lot. Plenty of great exam tips that help frame your mindset. Ignore her process chart because it doesn't match the PMI standard but great explanations overall. I passed on my first attempt with Above Target across all domains. Great book for exam prep.
