How to choose a best PMP book?

Here are the tips to choose PMP book.

Tip #1: Don’t rush and buy a book, do some research before purchase

Do some research by reading sample chapters and read genuine reviews from Amazon or similar sites. The blogs/forums messages may be posted by respective vendors or competitors; so don’t trust with these reviews.

Tip #4: Understand your failures
Each chapter of PMP book ends with a few sample test questions. Practice these questions and improve your skills.

Tip #5: Memorize all exam topics and more understanding
Many aspiring PMP initiates believe they can memorize their way to PMP certification. Impatience, anger, and hatred of multiple choice exams lead many astray. They fall prey to misdirection of superfluous information in the question and are consumed by the distractor answers.

Remember, the exam will test your project management knowledge based on exam objective defined in PMBOK, not your real experience. You might have accumulated years of professional experience and thousands of hours managing projects. However, the real exam may be tough if you are not prepared well with PMP books.

Tip #6: Believe in yourself
You’ve studied. You’ve worked hard.  You’ve rested up. You will spot the correct answers. You will be a PMP certified!
