Publisher's Summary

The PMP exam is the golden standard for project management professionals, but let's face it - it's tough to stay conscious when reading the PMBOK. This audiobook is the antidote. Everything you need to know to pass the PMP exam is included. It is literally one third the size in content compared to some of the more popular tomes out there. All that fluff has been removed and boiled down to the straight facts, plus enough glue to bring it all together so that it makes sense. Those uber-fancy terms and run-on sentences have been removed so you can quickly understand what is being said, instead of having to go over the same sentence three times.

This audiobook has been updated for the PMBOK Guide Sixth Edition, which includes all sorts of greatness over the previous edition including the following changes:

  • An updated PMI's Talent Triangle
  • A focus on schedule instead of time
  • Three new processes have been added
  • One process has been removed
  • Monitor is the new Control
  • An increase in the number of ITTOs
  • A recognition that agile methodologies now rule the planet

Enjoy a fun-but-serious way of learning the PMP material, which includes some great mnemonics on memorizing knowledge areas, processes, and process groups.

Please note that chapters may not have a descriptive name as displayed on your mobile device - this is limitation of the publishing platform. However, each chapter will always start with the title being read aloud, so it should be fairly simple to scan through chapters when you wish to revisit a subject.

wish i could get version 5.0

Any additional comments?

Great book but I'm taking the PMP exam under PMBOK 5 and would love your previous version. I"m keeping you version 6 as it is an awesome tool.

OK to start with

I started with this book before reading PMBOK and it was an easy way how to get more familiar with the topic. Listening is sometimes better then reading. Definitely just this book is not enough for the exam, unless you want to go for a second attempt. Also, there are some discrepancies in the book, the author obviously skipped Manage & Control quality processes. And, btw, brushing your teeth is not a project.

Great addition to my PMP prep studies.

I added this tipp my studying for the times I could not read. Listened to it in the car, shower and when I was going to bed. I really liked the way Phil explains everything in regular terms, it helps make it sink in better.

love this author and this book!

The author is also the narrator, so if you are not good with Texan accents... you may be in trouble. Okay, not really. I have listened to a lot of instructional books, and this guy is especially good at overcoming the obstacles of teaching difficult concepts via audio book. He does a great job of reiterating difficult points and using examples to aid in learning. He also has a wacky sense of humor, which I love. Recommended highly!

if you learn by listening to the reading of lists

This book is for you. Probably better to read than listen to. Some good examples. But mostly lists.

Very useful when are traveling or driving

Very useful when are traveling or driving, it covers pretty much everything. But u need to practice on simulated exam questions to pass.

One more way to be prepared for the exam

I think that sort of materials is hard to listen to.
However, the author tried to simplify it.
I also liked some sounds that helped to understand if a list was being read.
I believe it is better to use a paper book.

Not sufficient for preparing for the exam

I wish the course chapters were titled/numbered according to the PMBOK. also the name of the chapters is not specific it is only sequenced.

Welcome PMP guide

What did you like most about Simple PMP?

I didn't think a PMP audio book made sense, but this is well thought out and well read. I'm only up to chapter 6 but already it's made a dry subject an interesting listen, and I'm looking forward to the rest.
