With the worldwide surge in the demand for project management skills, the PMP and CAPM are among the hottest certifications today. To pass the PMP or CAPM exam, you need a no-gimmicks, no-nonsense book on the exam objectives. PMP In Depth is that book! Best-selling author Paul Sanghera offers concise yet comprehensive coverage of each topic included in the PMP and CAPM exams. With a laser sharp focus on the exam objectives, this study guide goes beyond being a simple exam cram. It includes hundreds of questions and detailed answers modeled after the actual exam and contains a complete practice exam with fully explained answers. It is 100% compatible with the latest (3rd) edition of the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK) by PMI. Appropriate for beginners, PMP In Depth assumes no prior knowledge of project management and presents material in a logical learning sequence: each section builds upon previous sections and each chapter upon previous chapters. All concepts-- simple and complex--are well-defined and clearly explained the first time they appear. There is no hopping from topic to topic and no technical jargon without explanation. PMP In Depth is written to the most current versions of the PMP and CAPM exams and also serves as a great reference tool for project managers after the exam. Maximize your learning and minimize your study time!
