What's the best PMP prep book you used?

I am prepping for the PMP and have read through a couple of texts that seem good (obviously, besides the PMBOK). I was wondering what others who are prepping for the exam are using. There are so many texts out there (e.g., http://astore.amazon.com/qualitechnwri-20) and I am not sure which one is the best. I like the McGraw-Hill Guide to the PMP, which goes into more logical details of the phases and calculations and when they are needed. I also like the PMP Review Guide by Sybex. What is everyone else using?




I am also preparing to take the PMP exam and truthfully I am exhausted.  This will be my second attempt and I bought the PMP Exam Prep 7th Edition by Rita Mulcahy.  Very good explanation and a lot of simulation tests.

Good luck on your preparation!




I'm actually using both books - McGraw-Hill and Rita. I'm happy with both. McGraw-hill's book is very focused on what you actually need to know to pass the exam. Rita's book provides a lot of interesting background information.

Good luck on your PMP exam


We recommend PMBOK® and at least one other book from Rita Mulcahy, and Head Strong.
