CAPM In Depth: Certified Associate in Project Management Study Guide for the CAPM Exam provides a cohesive, concise, yet comprehensive approach to the topics covered by the CAPM exam. With a laser-sharp focus on the CAPM exam, it goes beyond just being an exam cram. No prior knowledge of project management is assumed. The material is presented in a logical learning sequence: Each section builds upon previous sections, and each chapter builds on previous chapters. All concepts, simple and complex, are defined and explained when they appear for the first time. There is no hopping from topic to topic and no jargon without explanation. As a result, although the primary purpose of the book is to help the reader pass the CAPM exam, it will also serve as a good reference after the exam.
