    Good supplement to PMBOK

    I read the PMBOK first and then took a practice test. I found there was a lot of information on the test that was not clearly stated in the PMBOK. That's where Heldman's book came in. She has really done her research and covers the information that is consistently on the test. It helped me a lot. The only thing I found lacking was the dvd. I would have preferred a couple of full 200-quesion practice tests vs. the 75-question tests(2) that were included. The flashcards didn't help me, but that's going to vary from person to person.
