Over all the content of the book is good, but pages are very thin. Line spacing is too less, makes it unfriendly to read.
If there is one improvement that I can suggest is to bring in more picture or graphics to explain some topics. Eg. To get a clear understanding of the components of project budget you must see that picture from he PMBOk. There is no better way to explain it. But maybe I guess there is a copyright issue in taking those graphics. Nevertheless great buy. The price in India for the paper back is dirt cheap whilst the same in USA is 60 dollars.
Finally the day came I started my prep and somehow this guide was my obvious choice. I am very lucky on this choice of guide I feel. "Those who are well guided are well guided ;)". Read lot of blogs where people say that they read Kim at end and wished they knew about the book earlier. Kim has a good communication style but some places the sentences etc are complicated. But its a reliable friend if you just want to stick one book and consider it your bible, geeta, etc. Also, she shares how the PMI concepts actually pan out in real life. Some may find it confusing but i feel real time knowledge is more important. She also talks real good stuff about ethics, leadership, motivation theories and Quality Gurus and their theories.
I got hold of latest edition of Kim 7th edition ( the one i had was old edition). Reading PMBOK is mandatory even if you have the best guide in world. No one guide can cover all aspects of GUIDE. But suggestion is dont read it first. First select one book be it "Kim" or ":Rita" or "Head First" and then read your Guide. Dont get lost in the plethora of books and websites available. Choose 1 book and make it your bible. As expected I will suggest Kim as she covers the topics in a process approach " The way the processes happen in real life" and not by knowledge areas ( as in Rita, PMBOK). Big advantage is you will remember the Sequence of processes. You dont need to remember rita s chart for this. And you actually know how to use PMP concepts in your professional life because you learn the sequence and not just the topics.
I read PMBOK once. Some extra explanation for tools and techniques and few terms like OPM3 were only things that were missing in Kims book. There were lot of things in KIm which were not there in PMBOK. Overall happy with this book but there are many palces it can be "Simplified". and gets complex.
