You should buy this book if you're interested in project management and want to see what it's all about. Your IT background doesn't have to be very in-depth to take the IT Project+ test. PMs aren't typically subject matter experts in the IT area they're working in;
they utilize the people around them who are experts to get the job done. Project management is about putting the right people (with the right attitudes) together in order to achieve the project's objectives—to create its deliverables.
I would advise you to not be afraid of this test. If you've never taken a certification test before (I've taken dozens), you'll find that this is a very pleasant way to get your feet wet. The test isn't complicated or riddled with trick questions—just good old meat-and-potatoes questions about the basics of project management. I find that CompTIA creates an excellent test and is able to thoroughly test an individual on a given subject.
