Recommendations for PMP Training Courses

The publishers covered Collaboration Tools for Project Managers when I wrote it. That was something I had to do. I am not a PMP but I am very familiar with the concepts of the PMBOK Guide(r). It’s something I haven’t had the time to do.
I may at some point in the near future, especially if Jack Risos’ Ace the PMP Exam (3rd Ed, updated for PMBOK (r) – Sixth edition) is still available.
I had never read an iBooks Author book before, but I would definitely read more. Interactivity is built into the book through flashcards and interactive presentations. It’s easy to navigate and the layout is clear and easy to read. It was far more appealing than the ebooks I had on my Kindle app.
But enough talking about beautiful fonts and callout buttons. But what about the content?
The PMBOK(r), Guide to Aceing the PMP Exam
The Sixth Edition of A Guide to Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK Guide(r),) is not the most captivating of reads. Ace the PMP Exam is designed for you to learn the contents in the order that makes the most sense. It covers process outputs before it covers inputs so you can understand what you are trying achieve before you learn how it is done.

The book is organized in the same manner as you would normally manage a project. It begins with background information about the project management framework and how it all fits together.
It then covers planning, execution, monitoring, controlling, and closing. The planning section can be divided into five logical sections, but covers all knowledge areas: integration and scope, cost, quality, communication, risk, procurement, stakeholders, and cost.
Ace the PMP Exam was easy to understand and I found it a logical progression through projects. It makes sense and feels like it all fits together in a way that the PMBOK(r), Guide doesn’t.
