Book excerpt: Prepare for the PMP certification exam in a unique and inspiring way with Head First PMP. The second edition of this book provides 100% coverage of the latest principles and certification objectives offered in The PMBOK Guide, 4th edition, with a visually rich format is designed for the way your brain works. You'll find a full-length sample exam included inside the book. Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, Head First PMP offers you a multi-sensory experience that helps the material stick, not a text-heavy approach that puts you to sleep. You get a thorough and effective preparation guide with hundreds of practice questions and exam strategies, along with puzzles, games, problems, and exercises that make learning easy and entertaining. More than just passing a test, a PMP certification means that you have the knowledge to solve most common project problems, but studying for a difficult four-hour exam on project management isn't easy, even for experienced project managers. The book teaches underlying concepts so that you can understand the PMBOK principles and pass the certification exam with flying colors. Head First PMP puts project management principles into context to help you understand, remember, and apply them -- not just on the exam, but also on the job.
