If you're looking for a book on how to do project management, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a book on how projects, good projects, should operate, this book isn't for you. If you're looking for a primer on project management, move along. There are plenty of excellent books available that can help you reach those goals.

VIDEO Passing your project management certification exam.

What this book will do for you:

• Cover the PMP and CAPM exam objectives in detail

• Allow you to watch me. On the CD, there are several videos of me teaching you exam objectives

• Focus only on exam objectives

• Tell you how to pass the PMP or CAPM exam—not just take the exam

• Offer "roadmaps" for each chapter's content

• Offer 610 total practice questions (Fun!)

• This first chapter covers many things that will help you prepare for and pass your project management certification exam.

Not everyone can take the PMP or the CAPM exam—you have to qualify first. I think this is great. We, and soon you, don't need the market flooded with the "paper certifications" that other industries have experienced. This certification is special—it proves that the certified professional has documented project management experience, education, and has passed a tough, rigid exam. If it were easy, everyone would do it.

NOTE As this book covers the PMP and the CAPM examinations, there will be some moments where I'll hop from details on one exam to the other. Don't worry—these exams overlap so much that these awkward moments will be few and far between. Besides, if the information I'm sharing doesn't relate to you, yawn, stretch, and then move along to the information that does. I won't hold it against you.
