Book? No book!

Watch and listen to the prepcast. Use the exam simulator. Start with some quizzes first, and review and take notes on every wrong answer. When you start hitting 70% regularly, take a full blown simulator test. Again, review all wrong answers. Keep watching the prepcast.

Hi
I started with headfirst PMP, read it once only.
Then I read the PMBOK guide once along with Prepcast videos.
After that I just took mock exams and studied my notes.
Passed on the first try.
The most thing that helped me is that I linked all 49 processes together, And kept reviewing them until the day of exam
Good luck

I agree with this. I bought Kim Heldman's 9th Edition prep book but barely used it. The 1600 simulator questions are sufficient to reveal the weakness in my understanding with PM-Prepcast.

I prefer to quiz mode so that I can review the wrong answers.

PMBOK and Rita Mulcahy would suffice. Because that’s what worked for me.

I used the PMBOK , which took me ages to understand , but once i started on the precast audios and videos , PMBOK guide became much clearer and i certified on the first try.

Good luck!

When I studied for the PMP besides the PMBOK I studied using Rita's book, and that definitely helped me to pass the exam at the first attempt.
I also used another book called Head First PMP. I hope it helps.

Good luck.

I found Rita Mulcahy’s PMP Book to be an excellent compliment to the PMBOK. It’s an easy read and understanding. It provides a firm grasp of PMI’s approach to PMP and provides familiarity with the style of wording of questions on the PMP Exam. Truly an excellent resource/tool that helped me to pass the test.
I would also recommend purchasing simulated test and take as many tests as possible. This is truly another tool to prepare you for the test as a lot of the questions are similar to the way they are worded on test. I’d have to say Simulated tests are a Must.
Good Luck!
Sylvia

Definitely it should be Rita Mulcahys PMP prep book - it's very much situational with great quizzes/tests, also download number of applications like PMP Exam Mentor, Quizlet and PMP Pocket prep and do as many mocks as possible.

Good luck

Rita's was very helpful. I also did a project management academy bootcamp right before taking the exam. The PM Prepcast simulator was helpful as well
