About the Author
Jennifer Greene, has spent the past 15 years or so building software for many different kinds of companies. She's worked for small start-ups and some huge companies along the way. She's built software test teams and helped lots of companies diagnose and deal with habitual process problems so that they could build better software. Since her start in software test and process definition, she's branched out into development management and project management. She's currently managing a big development team for a global media company and she's managed just about every aspect of software development through her career.
Jennifer founded Stellman & Greene Consulting with Andrew Stellman in 2003, initially to serve the scientific and academic community. They have worked in a wide range of industries including finance, telecommunications, media, non-profit, entertainment, natural language processing, science and academia. They do speaking engagements, provide training on development practices, manage teams and build software. Together, they've written two highly acclaimed books on project management (Head First PMP and Applied Software Project Management), Head First C and most recently just finished up Beautiful Teams.
Andrew Stellman, despite being raised a New Yorker, has lived in Pittsburgh twice. The first time was when he graduated from Carnegie Mellon's School of Computer Science and then again when he and Jenny were starting their consulting business and writing their first project management book for O'Reilly. When he moved back to his hometown, his first job after college was as a programmer at EMI-Capitol Records which actually made sense, since he went to LaGuardia High School of Music and Art and the Performing Arts to study cello and jazz bass guitar. He and Jenny first worked together at that same financial software company, where he was managing a team of programmers. He's since managed various teams of software engineers, requirements analysts and led process improvement efforts. Andrew keeps himself busy eating an enormous amount of string cheese and Middle Eastern desserts, playing music (but video games even more), studying taiji and aikido, having a girlfriend named Lisa and owing a pomeranian.

As every product will have its own improvement areas. Here I am listing some of them. This feedback does not mean book is not good. Book is good but it will be better to make more improvements
Lead and lag should have been discussed with some better examples. It should have discussed the lead and lag concepts in context of FS,FF, SS and SF.
Control charts and possibility of process being out of control, should have been discussed with examples
Precision and accuracy needs good examples
I brought kindle edition of this book. Quite often top lines are cut and not able read, but it happens primarily 'exam questions' section and 'No questions are dumb'
Content is mind blowing. I am surprised with the effort put in to complete the book. I am halfway through and it has already given me enough confidence to clear the exam.
I had bought my copy of Head First PMP in December 2013. I received it in 3 working days, in excellent condition. As for the content of the book - the topics and the questions covered exactly follow the actual examination. I studied the book cover to cover 2 times, and attempted all the questions by simulating real exam conditions. The model question templates that Head First highlights have all appeared in the real exam.
In the actual exam, there are lots of scenario based questions, and this book prepares you for exactly that. Don't get carried away by the 'free questions' available on the internet that mostly focus on knowing ITTO (Inputs, Tools, Techniques, and Output) theory. Rest assured that if you study the contents of this book properly, you will clear the exam with ease.
