I'm assuming this is the main book I would use for studying? Is it enough to pass this exam? Are all the current Project + tests updated to 2009 version? Thanks all.

    That's the book I'm using along with the WGU supplied ucertify. I haven't taken the test yet but I've seen the book recommended.

    This book was excellent: http://www.amazon.com/CompTIA-Project-Study-Guide-PK0-003/dp/0470585927/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1309229453&sr=8-1

    I would have to say that the book that WGU sends is woefully insufficient by itself.

    Agreed!

    This was the book I used to pass.

    I used this book as well. The WGU suplied book bites the big one.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    How long did you guys spend studying?

    I'm studying for the PMP right now, but I'm thinking about taking Project+ after too since it doesn't expire.

    That's like buying and driving an S-Class Mercedes and deciding you want to buy and drive a Chevy Aveo....icon_lol.gif


    Practical reasons aside from wanting to do that, a PMP has more weight than Project+. Also, if you can pass PMP, you wouldn't need to study for Project+ as the objectives are nearly identical; it's just that the PMP is much more involved than Project+.

    Don't get me wrong though...Project+ is a good cert to get you familiar with taking a high level PM exam like the PMP, but the fact that it's lifetime isn't a good enough reason to stop going for the PMP, IMO. It's a beginning, not an end.

    LOL

    Sad thing is I wrecked the Chevy Aveo the first time I drove it. Image what I would do with that S class? :)

    It's what I ended up using. It was a solid book, but I had to read it 2 times. Now that I work as a service manager I could blow through that exam. If I only would of waited 2 years lol.
