PMBok vs Rita Mulcahy

I have read pmbok twice and andy crowe's book once. I have rita mulcahy's book but i dont want to read too many books and confuse myself and hence will only rwfer 'tips and tricks' sections in her book as well as questions behind each chapter. My question is: what do you recommend? Should i read rita too? Btw my exam is scheduled for sept 9th.

Hi,

you shouldn't start reading Rita's now. I did not know Andy's book, but it was mentioned as good several times.

So, just skimm Rita's for her "Trick and Trades", you can explore many of good advice there for the exam.

And than do as much sample exams as you can in the remaining time.

 

Regards,

Markus

Hi Markus,

You mean to say only "Trick and Trades" are enough for passing PMP exam.

Read Rita but dont take it too seriously since you are already near the exam. Solve all the questions at the back of chapter.

Just going through few key items and tricks and trade

Every book has its plusses & minuses. But reading PMBOK Guide along with any other study guide is enough. On the other hand, you can look at the comparison of Rita's vs Andy's book to determine if you should read Rita's book - Best PMP Book.

Secondly, I would suggest that you should do lot of questions. That will give boost to your prep. You can read the following articles to find practice questions -

Good luck.

I think the pz books are fair enough for the preparations. In the blogs of do my assignment for me australia , I have seen the reviews. I guess there should be no competition in education.
