Strongly recommend for anyone preparing for the PMP exam
With the help of this book I passed the PMP exam first time. The questions are excellent - very representative of the questions on the actual PMP exam I took. The answer explanations really help you to understands process areas you may be struggling to grasp. If you read the PMBOK, understand all the processes and their ITTOs, and take the tests in this book you should be well prepared.

Navigation between Q and A added in this addition. Good.
Improved, actually not so much because of references to 5th edition of PMBOK, but more because of navigation, which did not exist before.

With previous version, I had to work around by having two Kindles open at the same time, one in Questions area, and the other in Answers area.

That obvious obstacle was alleviated in this edition. With every question, you have a "Check Answer" link, which, in turn, has a "Back to Question" link. Answer still explain both the correct and the wrong options. And, if one cannot remember the question they just answered, well, that is a short term memory problem.

So, improved and much less time consuming.

Good drill.

As for that "discount" sales pitch offer (in the intro of the book) for additional tests which can be downloaded from a web site, with additional charges.... Three tests are more than enough for anybody to test the mettle. No need to bother with more.

so I am vrey happy with the result
You know, this book is strange. There are many grammar mistakes in the questions. Some questions (very few, less than 1%) are arguably answers that could be wrong if you think about PM processes the way PMI tells you to.

However, it's hard to argue with results. After a lot of studying through Rita, it's only through studying this book that I was able to get a handle on the many tricks required to pass the exam. I scored all "Proficient" on the 5 knowledge areas, so I am vrey happy with the result, and thus recommend this book to anybody who wants a cost-effective way to train for the PMP. "Cost-effective", in the sense that for the price, you get a lot of questions that help effectively prepare for the PMP.

Best was to prepare for the exam!
Great book. It gives you plenty of practice so when you get to the exam you know what to expect, and you are not nervous because you have done it all before. Also, not only does it tell you why the right answer is right, but it also tells you why the wrong answers are wrong.

Just went trough the first set of questions... the author has an extremely poor English and writes his sentences in a VERY unusual way, I had to read each question several times just to understand what the hell is he saying. The whole text in this book looks like was written in a foreign language and then ran through Google Translate program... I have also found at least one question when the author sims to get confused himself with math estimating the number communication channels and did not provide correct option for an answer (q-n 154): Project manager has 6 people on his team (the way I see it is 6+ project manager =7), then the number increased to 11, how many communication channels were added? He derives his math from a team of 6 and then of 11... I have used various books to prepare for this exams, they all warn about this kind of questions as a trick question.. PM had X number of people in her team which implies X+1... looks like Mr. Nasir got tricked himself.. but the worst part really is the language the book is written in.

good but needs editing
The information was useful in preparing for my exam but the numerous grammatical errors made it painful to read through. Examples:
"In which of the following stages of team development, the team members begin..."
"A customer has asked you that he wants to review the completed deliverables..."
"Which of the following does these tools belong to?"
"Which of the following a project team should NOT do..."

Gets the job done but not great
Bought this book as a supplement to Rita Mulcahy's PMP study guide. This book was great for testing my knowledge and seeing where I needed to study more. I found that the questions on the real exam were not structured the same. This book concentrates on asking questions like which of the following are INCORRECT etc. In addition, the book is filled with grammatical errors and it was difficult to understand what was being asked on a few questions. Otherwise the book did its job in helping me identify where I was lacking in knowledge.

This book helped me pass, but...
I took and passed the PMP on my first attempt. I used this book as my primary source of practice questions in preparing for the PMP exam so let me start by saying it served its purposes. With that said I have some serious issues with the book and wouldn't strongly recommend it to others. I would say about 10% of the questions in each 200 question practice exams were out of left field and were not indicative of the PMP exam. Many of those same questions and a few others had very general answers that I couldn't tie back to the PMBOK. It would have been very helpful if the answer to each questions also sited a page or section of the PMBOK you could refer to for more information.

Many grammatical errors, it was hard to read, it can be actually confusing. I notice some of the answers and explanations are incorrect, i would even say that some question were poorly designed and elaborated which can lead to confusion. I guess this book can be used for practice but i would not trust in the answers to the questions provided by the author.

Quality of questions is good enough
Questions are close to the real exam. The quality of questions is good enough to be used as a supplement for PMP exam preparation. However, on real exam, there is not so many one-liner questions as seen on this book. Most of the questions are situational in nature and don't often ask for direct memorization of PMBOK as some of the questions on this book. Recommended as the book is reasonable priced with good enough questions. It had helped me pass the exam.

Great prep

Atrocious Grammar
I finished the first 50 questions before calling it quits. As other reviewers have mentioned the grammar is atrocious. How can I trust that these questions are a remotely accurate representation of the PMP exam when the author/publisher can't even be bother to proofread the book.

One Star
Not very good.

This book was obviously translated poorly from some other language. A lot is lost in translation. If you thought written questions were tough for the PMP exam try answering them when the questions and answers are poorly written. Yuk. This book didn't help me prepare in any way.

February 27, 2016

This book confused me more than it helped, my advice is to spend a bit more and go with Aileen Ellis materials. The practice questions and answers were not similar to the exam. The questions and answers were also worded in a very convoluted manner which diminished the effectiveness of this tool.

Pick another resource!
If I could rate this book as a zero, I would. I suggest not buying or reading this book because it is very difficult to read and understand. It needs an editor and a proofreader. The navigation is also not intuitive. The content is also out of date.

August 25, 2015

Would not recommend.
Poorly written, loaded with grammatical errors, and many of the questions appear to be based on the author's opinion. More time spent trying to understand the sentences and searching for proof in the PMBOK than learning.
Would not recommend.

February 28, 2015

Poorly written
Horribly written. While the content is not that bad, the writing and grammar of this book make it very difficult to understand what the questions are asking. I find myself having to spend an inordinate amount of time trying to decipher the grammatical construct of each question before I can even think to answer it.

I kept running into PMBOK 4 questions. I'm not sure if this was ever updated fully to PMBOK 5. also I found it hard to flip back to questions and I kept seeing the answers to the next questions. After reading a few question, I did not use.

There are so many mistakes (grammar, missing words etc) in this book, I couldn't use it to study for the test. I tried approx. 100 questions and found that I spent too much time trying to understand the questions due to words missing, grammar issues, or questions that were too cumbersome.

Some questions have wrong answers:
for example:
194. Which of the following is CORRECT about the product scope?
A) Product scope is the subset of project scope
B) Product scope is a combination of product scopes of smaller components
C) Product scope is the work needed to deliver the product on time, within budget and within scope
D) Product scope and project scope are the same concepts. It is called project scope by the project team and product scope by the customer.

According to PMBok Guide 5th edition page 105: "The term project scope is sometimes viewed as including product scope." so the right answer must be A

The questions given in this book don't seem to be relevant to PMI Book. Although the questions are interesting but my personal opinion is that these questions may not be sufficient enough to pass PMP on the first try as advertised. I am not sure though.

Good value, but book version has countless typos
For the price, this is worth the investment for 600 questions, which are informative enough. However, I found other exam prep books more challenging. Also, the typos in this book are horrendous. With each of the tests, I missed a couple questions due to typos (calling an "issue" log a "change" log, for example). Perhaps these are fixed in the Kindle version, but the book is difficult to read, and I had to spend time figuring out proper sentence structure instead of focusing on the questions as words like "the" are often missing.

Like I said, it's worth the money, but don't expect it to be the best resource out there. I think Rita and Kim Heldman are much better.

September 24, 2013

Very hard to compare questions and answers
The section with the answers does not repeat the question or choices. Thus, you must continually flip back to the question page and then to the answer page. Very User Unfriendly! I promptly returned the Kindle book for a refund

February 11, 2016

Good questions, but do not ise for PMP prep.
Although the questions are good to make you think about Project Management, they are not similar to the PMP exam.
