Project Manager
by Pablo Lledó
Trafford Publishing

"This book is not the silver bullet to passing the PMP® Exam. But with this book, the right attitude, and dedication, we have no doubt you will achieve your goal."

Acronyms like SAT, ACT, GMAT, and GRE often panic those who anticipate taking such exams to further their education or careers. Do they know enough to pass? What if the questions prove too tricky? Publishers capitalize on these fears by rolling out a plethora of test practice books designed to equip the anxious student with the preparation necessary to succeed. Lledó jumps into this burgeoning market with an excellent guide to the PMP® Exam that seeks to demystify the test and help would-be project managers approach their future with confidence.

Unlike some test preparation books, Lledó's offering doesn't limit itself to simply helping business professionals pass the exam. Instead, the author's goal is to educate the reader through practical lessons and examples to apply these teachings to the real-life situations they will face on a daily basis as project managers. Written as a complement to the PMBOK® Guide, 4th Edition, the book is packed with exercises, sample questions, and insider techniques that increase the test-taker's chances to excel.

Possibly one of the greatest strengths of this book is the ability of the author to build on the wisdom of others. Far from ignoring the expert knowledge found in other PMP® Exam preparation books, Lledó credits some of their writers as being mentors of his own learning and even adapts some of their materials to use in his work. The result is a guide that combines the best from the teachings of others with Lledó's own unique take on the subject. In addition, Lledó's background as a professor, project leader, CEO, and author of two previous books on project management lends both credibility and depth to his content. Filled with step-by-step procedures, helpful graphs, and hundreds of thought-provoking questions, this book is a useful tool for anyone desiring to be a successful project manager.
