Présentation de l'éditeur

Learn the latest principles and certification objectives in The PMBOK® Guide, (Fifth Version), in a unique and inspiring way with Head First PMP. This book helps you prepare for the PMP certification exam using a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. You'll find a full-length sample exam included inside the book.

More than just proof of passing a test, a PMP certification means that you have the knowledge to solve most common project problems. But studying for a difficult four-hour exam on project management isn't easy, even for experienced project managers. Drawing on the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, Head First PMP offers you a multi-sensory experience that helps the material stick, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep.

This book will help you:

  • Learn PMP's underlying concepts to help you understand the PMBOK principles and pass the certification exam with flying colors
  • Get 100% coverage of the latest principles and certification objectives in The PMBOK Guide, Fifth Edition
  • Make use of a thorough and effective preparation guide with hundreds of practice questions and exam strategies
  • Explore the material through puzzles, games, problems, and exercises that make learning easy and entertaining

Head First PMP puts project management principles into context to help you understand, remember, and apply them—not just on the exam, but also on the job.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Some mistakes, but not a deal breaker 19 janvier 2014
Par Momof3 - Publié sur Amazon.com

I wrote the below comment for Rita's book "PMP Exam Pre, eighth edition), but I will also,post it here for Head First!!! Let me say that Head First is an outstanding book, some mistakes but if you know the concepts you can work through them. If you have time yo study both Rita's book and Head First I HIGHLY recommend studying both! You can get through Head First in 2 weeks its a very fun read.

I passed my PMP two days ago! I took a. 4 day bootcamp which was a waste of money, but the instructor from the bootcamp told me to buy Rita's book to get a better understanding. I also bought Head First PMP, McGraw-Hill's PMP Certification Mathematics with CD-ROM , I also signed up for a 20 day pass on PMStudy to rake practice test. When I took the exam I felt very confident and was able to breeze through the questions. I was able to pass all the sections!!!! I truly believe all the above resources really helped me. If you cannot get all the above resources or only have a short window to study I recommend the following:

1) DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON A BOOTCAMP!!!!!!
2) Buy Rita's book and read as much as you can
3) Get McGraw-Hill's PMP Certification Mathematics with CD-ROM to help with the math section (take the practice test on the CD-ROM) 1-2 days before the test. Make sure you understand calculating critical path, and all the necessary formulas (KNOW YOUR FORMULA'S IN YOUR SLEEP!!!!, EAT, DRINK, SLEEP, PLAY WHATEVER YOU DO KNOW YOUR FORMULA'S!!!!!) especially AC, PV, EV, CV, CPI, SV, SPI, EAC, BAC, ETC, TCPI, SD, VARIANCE, PV (PRESENT VALUE), Communication Channel
4) Sign up for PMStudy 20 days worth of testing!!!! Take the first test to see where you are, study study study the knowledge areas where you are weak take exam 2 if you get less than 80 go back to Rita's book! Take exam 3 get an 80 or better than take exam 4 the morning BEFORE your test so that your in a testing mind frame.
5) I LOVED Head First PMP but if you don't have time to study everything I would say to buy this book as a companion to Rita's book. This book is a fun read and makes the concepts easier to understand
6) Make sure your referencing the PMBOK 5 (Most Important)

During the exam (make sure your doing good on time before you follow these directions)
1) If you believe in prayer (PRAY) - ummmm you also do not need to tell anyone your taking the test, just in case........
2) Breathe and relax
3) Do the first 50 - 75 questions (Take a break, go to the bathroom, get some water, sit in the waiting room, just get away from the test)
4) Go back in do the next 25 - 50 questions (take another break)
5) Keep doing this until you finish
6) Before you review your questions, take your final break come back review your questions, (I took another break!!!!!), did the survey, packed up my things so I wasn't steering at the screen, and BOOM THERE IT WAS!!!!! Birds started singing, confetti fell from the ceiling, and people began to dance!! (well maybe in my head, but you get the point!)

Good luck and God Bless!!!!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Really Helpful 8 janvier 2014

This book is really a helpful study tool for those who are getting started with their PMP study.
It really simplifies the information and uses an attractive approach to get the needed information into your head.
I strongly recommend this book for those who get bored from reading traditional text books.
Despite of some minor mistakes and typos, this book is still awesome.
I just passed my PMP test on 1/20/2014 using this book as my primary study guide and i found that it had 90% of the information i needed to pass the exam..
I also used some other practice questions books to help practice.

Special Advice:
When you buy this paper book, visit the Author's website mentioned on the last page register, and buy yourself a soft copy of the book for an extra 5$.
it will be useful to print exercise pages and practice them with your own hands, while keeping your original paper copy clean.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Passed the PMP Exam on the first try 26 avril 2014
Par Project Guy - Publié sur Amazon.com

The Rita Mulcahy book and the Head First PMP book were my two main study materials for the PMP exam. I picked up this book after the laborious read of the Rita book that would put me to sleep in minutes. I am very happy I did.

Unlike the Rita book, the Head First is MUCH easier to read. It is graphic and not text-intensive which leads to a better understanding of the material (in my opinion). More that that, the book builds confidence and gives you a sense of accomplishment that the material is actually sticking. The questions are exactly what you will find on the PMP exam (unlike the Rita book which are harder / more confusing). As a matter of fact, I swear that some questions were almost verbatim to what I was presented with today on the actual exam. This is important, as I don't need to fail lifting 1,000 lbs if the requirement is only to lift 100 lbs.

I'm not a huge fan of reading, however this book makes it much less painful. There is a lot of white space, pictures, diagrams and games which makes it much more interactive - unlike a text book.

As others have mentioned, there are some typos / mistakes (references to answer pages are incorrect for example) which is why it gets the 4 star rating. I'm no scholar so if I can find typos the editors should have found them first.

Even with that, I found this book invaluable and which I had only read it rather than wasting my time on the Rita book.

Today I passed the PMP exam with a "Proficient" rating in all the knowledge areas and I feel I owe most of that to this book.

As a bonus, it is 1/2 the price of the Rita book. Worth price paid.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Book! 31 janvier 2014
Par Joseph - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was originally supposed to take the PMP exam Jan 6th, which was too early to purchase the new edition of Head First PMP so I opted for Rita's PMP book instead. Unfortunately I was not impressed with Rita's style and found it difficult to stay focuses for long study periods. I really wanted the Head First book so I rescheduled my exam date to Mar 1 and waited for this book to release. Well, I was also taking a graduate course and therefore didn't have much time to study for the PMP, thus rescheduling made sense.

Now for my review of the Head First PMP book. I have not finished the book nor taken the PMP exam yet, so please understand this is only my impression of the book as a study guide prior to taking the test. I will update my review after the exam. Thus far the material is sticking in my brain just like the authors imply. Something about the method of teaching they use really does work. There are a lot of pictures with words inside or next to them and a lot of redundancy. I was not doing so well with Rita's on the end of chapter practice tests, whereas with Head First I am nearly acing the review questions and quizzes. It's not that the questions are easier in my opinion, the instruction is simply much better. Also, I find myself enjoying the content, which was not at all the case with Rita's. My study method from here out is to read a chapter in Head First and complete the study questions and quiz, then read the corresponding chapter in the PMBOK, followed by the corresponding chapter from PMI's Q&As for the PMBOK. The Q&As book came highly recommended from a coworker who passed the PMP last year. I think most people would find Head First to be a great study guid for the exam and therefore I highly recommend it. I will not be using Rita's from here on so as not to get confused from the different teaching styles. That does not mean Rita's is not a good book, just that I prefer HF.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The only PMP book you need 1 mai 2014
Par N. Wright - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
As the title would suggest, this is the only PMP book you need. I used this book and studied for about a month and passed the PMP test. On average I studied a chapter a day. Some chapters are a lot tougher than others, so planning is required. I just went through page by page and did every single exercise, which is very important.

This book is probably the best book I'll ever see to help somebody study any material. The authors have structured it in such a way that it has the effectiveness of one-on-one teaching, but in book form.

HUGE NOTE - This book is horribly formatted for a kindle or iBooks version. I made this mistake, do not get these, they are a waste of money. Two primary reasons: (1) The authors state in the introduction that it's proven we learn better if text is integrated with images. So the book has a lot of big images with very important text that span both pages in the physical form. But in the virtual form these are shrunk down to tiny proportions. (2) The book has a ton of exercises that are meant for you to write directly in the book for (i.e. crosswords, quizzes, etc.). Needless to say it's kinda hard to do these if you don't have the physical book. Its not like you can skip these exercises either, they are apart of learning the material.

A few recommendations to anyone looking to take the test.
-Realistically plan out how much time you'll devote to studying. I found myself hitting the studying wall about 3-4 hours in. Then nothing would 'stick'.
-Give yourself a week before the test to review the entirety of the material.
-In the preface, the authors give recommendations on how to study. Take these to heart.

Feel free to ask any questions below, happy to answer them.
