Announcing the 4th edition of Head First PMP

We’re pleased to announce our latest book, the 4th edition of Head First PMP, the latest edition of our popular preparation guide for the Project Management Professional certification exam. We thoroughly updated it to include all of the latest information to prepare you to pass the current PMP exam. But there’s one thing we kept: we use the language, ideas, and practical techniques of project management, so instead of cramming, you’re learning. We don’t just want you to pass the exam; we want to help you become a better project manager. That’s why Head First PMP is the easiest way to get the concepts behind the PMP exam into your brain.

Head First PMP teaches you the latest principles and certification objectives in The PMBOK® Guide in a unique and inspiring way. This updated fourth edition takes you beyond specific questions and answers with a unique visual format that helps you grasp the big picture of project management. By putting PMP concepts into context, you’ll be able to understand, remember, and apply them—not just on the exam, but on the job. No wonder so many people have used Head First PMP as their sole source for passing the PMP exam.

The next edition of Head First PMP is almost here

We’re thrilled to announce that the 4th edition of our PMP preparation guide, Head First PMP, is in the final stretch of its production cycle. It will be released very soon! We just got the last of the proofs back from our (fantastic) proofreader, and it looks really good. We’ve gotten so many notes from readers asking about the release date, so we’re especially happy to point out that the release page on the Amazon page for the 4th edition is accurate.

You can pre-order the book here: https://www.amazon.com/Head-First-PMP-4th-ed/dp/1492029645/

We’re excited to finish this project and provide what we believe to be the most effective PMP preparation guide on the market. We’ve updated it to include all of the new material in the 6th edition of the PMBOK® Guide. But we’ve stuck the central idea behind every edition of the book, the idea that we think has made it so successful: that we teach you about project management in a way that also prepares you for the exam. We’ve continued our commitment to helping you learn, not cram, so you can become a better project manager while you prepare for certification.

Thanks again for your patience, and for your support over the years.
