I am considering finding a book to order and a quick look at Amazon has shown that there are literally endless choices of options. So my question to the group and moderators would be, if you were going to order only one study guide or book which one would you order ? I am certain that there are lots of publications that have been become obsolete with the new version of the test having come out, and want to make sure that I choose something that is up to date. I am also looking for something that is not as dry as the PMBOK Guide if at all possible. Thank you for any insight you may have

Many here, including myself, have had great success using Rita Mulcahy's PMP Exam Prep . The Ninth Edition is updated for the current version of the PMBOK. Good luck to you in your studies!

Hi Gaurav,

If you want a quick link to get familiar with the process flow, try Ricardo's PMP video . I used the video in conjunction with the PMBOK and Prepcast to master all 49 processes.

For ITTO, I simply copied each item for all processes by hand, so that I can memorize the important elements.
