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.
On to VCAP!
I would have to say that the book that WGU sends is woefully insufficient by itself.
This was the book I used to pass.
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....
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.
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.
