4 Essential Books To Help You Pass Your PMP Exam

An overview of what you will learn in this post:

- That students (in our opinion) still love to read and learn using text (study) books!
- Our 'recommended' books for studying and passing PMI Certifications

We've trained thousands of students in a variety of online courses; especially with regards to enhancing their Excel skills and with Passing PMP Courses, and we've noticed that despite all the advances in technology, students still (in our opinion) like to use books as study aids, often as complementary resources alongside their online training.

Our recommended books: PMI Institute/ PMP Courses

Head First PMP
We had the pleasure of interviewing expert Agile Coach and PMP-Certified Project Manager Andrew Stellman. Andrew is probably best known in the PMP Community for his excellent book: Head First PMP. We like this book because it helps you to understand PMP's underlying concepts as well as the PMBOK principles. You've got to work hard to pass any of the PMI certifications and this book, along with our online video training will be a sure-fire way to pass!  

A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge: PMBOK® Guide 
Our project management courses are aligned to the fifth edition (current edition) of this book, which makes this the ideal study companion. We especially like this edition because of the way it sets out the PMBOK in a clear fashion.

PMP Exam Simplified: Updated for 2016 Exam
We like this book because it is written by a very well-known PMP Expert: Aileen Ellis. Aileen has helped more than 10,000 professionals obtain their PMP Certification and over 1,000 professionals obtain those coveted letters: CAPM! Someone with such depth of professionalism and understanding of how to pass and learn the PMP range of training programs is absolutely worthy of spot on our list!

PMP: Project Management Professional Exam Study Guide
We like this book because you'll find concise and detailed discussions on a wide range of project management topics, concepts, and key terms that are placed alongside 'real-life' workplace scenarios and examples. Furthermore, we like the idea that each chapter includes comprehensive review questions to help you gauge your understanding.

In summary
If you are studying for a PMP Certification then we'd recommend two things: first - get yourself registered on one of our awesome comprehensive GoSkills PMI Training courses, and secondly, grab yourself a good text book and you will be on your one-way ticket to achieving success with getting certified!
