[twocol_one_last] [/twocol_one_last] PMBOK is dull, dry and hard to consume but one cannot live without it. You will have to read PMBOK in order to understand Project Management concepts, definitions and terms.

All the PMP Books mentioned above follow PMBOK’s way of explaining the concepts via Knowledge Area’s while I prefer and recommend studying Process Group and the reason is, in the real PMP Exam, you will be tested based on Process Group and not Knowledge Area.
Also in real life, we perform projects via the Process Group method, It’s a bit confusing and frustrating but that’s how PMBOK teaches us.
Go grab, any book mentioned above and ace pmp exam.
