I am currently studying to pass my PMP exam after the holidays. Since I spend a lot of time on public transportation, I was looking to a way to utilize this time for studying. I was looking for a book format that was conveniently small, while at the same time packed quality information for study.
Rita Mulcahy?s Hot Topics were exactly what I was looking for. The flashcards are about 4 inches by 6 inches, on a spiral bind. It makes the pages very easy to flip.
Of course, the important part is not so much the format as the content. Hot Topics is not a bunch of multiple-choice questions, but rather open-ended questions that help me acquire knowledge. I found the questions well focused. They helped me identify which knowledge areas need more review.
With its 600+ questions, Hot Topics is definitely a must-have study help for PMP and CAPM exams.
