Thanks a lot for your clear explanation. I am now reading Head First and will learn PMBOK later although my training is based on PMBOK.

It depends on your style. Importance is the PMBOK. That's a must.
EASE of being able to understand and not struggle through the "dryness" would be (easy to hard):
Head First (like "for dummies" format)
Rita (like a text book)
Pmbok (like a dictionary)

bottom line answer is Yes.
but this depends on many factors like: what is your baseline information and experience, what level of details and focus you will dedicate, does your study style match the book style, etc.

my recommendation is if you have time, utilize the material you have. every book will definitely add to your knowledge and I personally favor heads first over Rita's.
