In our PMP Credential Workshops, we highly recommend the use of two texts in addition to the PMBOK for students to use in preparing for the PMP exam:
Crowe, Andy. The PMP Exam – How to Pass on Your First Try. Velociteach Sanghera, Paul. PMP In Depth: Project Management Professional Study Guide for PMP and CAPM Exams. Course Technology PTR
Crowe looks at project management in Knowledge Area sequence, like the PMBOK. Sanghera uses Process Group sequence, which is closer to real world project management. Together, they help build a deeper understanding of project management, and provide chapter quizzes and final examinations for you to practice on before taking the exam. Also included here is a summary of the PMP Credential Examination Specification. As with Sanghera, it provides a good overview of project management "flow" from a Process Group point of view.
