Maybe if you're Malcolm In the Middle...

There's virtually zero chance that this book is useful for helping with the PMP Exam. Like a couple of other reviewers indicated previously, this is essentially a Math Exam read out load. And unless you can do calculus in your head like Malcolm in the Middle, this is virtually impossible to follow (at least, not without the $200 written version).

And there is NO WAY that the majority of the reviews of this book are legitimate (which are what lead me to purchasing this book). Just scrolling back through and seeing when all of the submitted FIVE STAR reviews, they're all like literally on the same day/within a day of each other (and most within 10 days of the book being released). Smells fishy to me.

While I will generally rate books that I like/don't like, I generally don't do a lot of written reviews. But to potentially help someone from making the same mistake that I did, this simply isn't the book you want to purchase if you're trying to prep for the PMP Exam. Again, if you either already own or plan on purchasing the ($200) companion book, then I can see how it "might" be useful in that way. But on it's own...just...no.

Another reviewer did indicate that the Agile portion of the book (in later chapters) is helpful, but I didn't even get that far or give it a chance. But I sincerely hope that this review helps someone and I really hope Audible will potentially look into some of these ratings that simply aren't consistent with the actual quality of this book.

Not audiobook

There is no way you can learn something from this book. Is full of formulas impossible to understand when narrated. Maybe the actual book would be helpful.

Great start to learning PMP Agile

The first book was rough to get through, the Agile book was great. I would go straight to the Agile book.

Good basic thought process of Agile also has reference ideas to connect online to learn how to get more information.

It is about like listening to a math book

There is no knowledge group narrative. For me, listening to sample questions with no context does not help me retain information

The reviews are accurate. A great listen.

This book is engaging and really drills into the important concepts. It also broke down the PMBOK concepts and made it easier to understand and digest. I highly recommend this book to anyone going for their PMP.
