This book has been reviewed and approved as CompTIA Authorized Quality Curriculum (CAQC). Students derive a number of important study advantages with CAQC materials, including coverage of all exam objectives, implementation of important instructional design principles, and instructional reviews that help students assess their learning comprehension and readiness for the exam.
Note: On August 10, 2004 CompTIA changed the name of the IT Project+ certification to Project+, "in order to better reflect the title's application beyond IT professionals." Neither the exam objectives nor the exam questions were changed. The CAQC appoved content found in this edition of the IT Project+ Study Guide therefore remains valid and suitable for candidates preparing for the Project+ certification.

This book is highly recommended as a starting point into the PMI CAPM/PMP track. The authors wrote the content with the PMI Guide to Project Management Book of Knowledge (PMBOK) 2000 Edition as its basis, and then correlated the CompTIA Project+ exam requirements into the entire reference. It summarizes the PMBOK quite well, per se. The CD-based practice exams are decent, but remember not to memorize the Q&As for the actual exam -- you must *understand* the project management (PM) content. For PMI-track project management starters, it is recommended to go for the Project+ certification first with this reference, then read the PMBOK, and then go for your PMI CAPM using a CAPM-specific study guide. Then, once you are done with the CAPM, go for your PMI PMP certification. Even when the PMBOK changes to the 3rd edition, this Project+ Study Guide is still recommended as a good starting point and an overall PM reference. Finally, I like the down-to-earth points and suggestions in the book in being a project manager. They are typically not covered in any of the PMI-specific references.Was this review helpful?

Although this is a well prepared book, it only covers about 15% in terms of how the PK0-001 and PK0-002 exams are written. As an exam study guide this is unacceptable. From a IT project management standpoint, this book will serve a PM as a great reference for the structure of a project.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
