Recommended PMP Exam Prep Kindle Books

Kindle is a very popular way to browsing frictions and magazine. In fact, a number of PMP® Exam Prep books have been published through the Kindle platform (PMP® Exam Prep Kindle Books) lately to allow PMP® Certification Aspirants to make their PMP® preparation more mobile and accessible — no longer have to carry the heavily bounded hundreds of pages of printed PMP® Exam Prep books!

Below is a list of the most popular and recommended PMP® Exam books that are available on Kindle that I have personally made use of during my PMP® Certification Exam — these are the best ones that I have found. (note: if you don’t own a Kindle, you can still purchase the paperback ones).

Note: these PMP® Exam Prep Kindle books will not offer you the 35 Contact Hours for your PMP® Registration. You will need to at least go through an online PMP® Exam training courses for the contact hours.

PMP® Exam Prep Kindle Available on Amazon

1. The PMBOK® Guide (A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge) published by Project Management Institute — Kindle edition

The PMBOK® Guide is also considered the syllabus for the PMP® Exam — although the PMP® Exam syllabus lists the PMBOK® Guide as one of the recommended reference titles. Almost every PMP® Certification Aspirants would read the PMBOK® Guide once or more during their PMP® Exam prep as most of the PMP® Exam questions are to be based on the knowledge contained within. I did read through it twice during my PMP® Exam journey and thought that it contributed much to my first time success of passing the PMP® Exam.

Though the PMBOK® Guide is available in many languages, it is highly recommended to base your PMP® studies on English, the official PMP® Exam language.

A PDF soft copy of the PMBOK® Guide can be downloaded for FREE if you are a PMI paid member. If you would like to purchase the PMBOK® Guide ebook to be read on your Kindle, OR you would like to have a quick preview of the Guide, here is the link:

The Kindle version ebook for the PMBOK® Guide offers the following benefits over the PMBOK® Guide PDF free download:

2. Head First PMP®: A Learner’s Companion to Passing the Project Management Professional Exam (Kindle ebook)

The Head First PMP®: A Learner’s Companion to Passing the Project Management Professional Exam is written by Jennifer Greene and Andrew Stellman. Unlike traditional exam prep books, the Head First book series is written using “drawing on the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science and learning theory”. The book includes a lot of diagrams, tables, illustrations, etc. to help readers to memorize the knowledge of PMP® as quick as possible. Hundreds of PMP® practice questions and exam strategies are included to complete the preparation.

4. How to get every Earned Value question right on the PMP® Exam: 50+ PMP® Exam Prep Sample Questions and Solutions on Earned Value Management (EVM) (PMP® Exam Prep Simplified) (Kindle ebook)

This is not a complete PMP® Exam Prep Guide ebook as the above. If you study this guide alone, you will absolutely fail the PMP® Exam. But if you find the earned value management calculation of the PMP® Exam rather mysterious or difficult, you will find this PMP® Exam guide very useful to help you earn back a few correct answers for the earned value management questions from the PMP® Exam. There are more than 50 most common PMP® earned value management (EVM) questions that can be found in this book. If you understand how to correctly arrive at the answers of these questions, you stand a very high chance of getting the EVM questions on your actual PMP® Exam paper right.

(I have also written a post of PMP® Earned Value Management (EVM) Questions exam tactics here based on what I have learnt from this book and other PMP® Exam Prep guide during my PMP® Exam journey, hope this will be useful to you too.)

For preview and/or order, please follow the following PMP® Exam Prep Kindle ebook link:

Unfortunately, one of the most popular PMP® Exam Prep book — the PMP® Exam Prep by Rita Mulcahy — is NOT available in Kindle as a downloadable PMP® ebook. The PMP® Exam Prep by Rita Mulcahy is often considered one of the bibles of PMP® Exam Study Guides and is suitable for those who would like to be best prepared for the PMP® Exam (also with most time dedicated to PMP® Exam studies). It explains PMI-isms in the greatest depth that no others are near — PMI-isms are what considered right by PMI but not necessarily being practised in everyday project management work. PMP® Certification Aspirants will need the PMI-isms mindset to pass the PMP® Exam more easily.

PMP® Certification Aspirants looking for Rita’s PMP® Exam Prep Kindle may need to choose the above recommended ones or purchase the hardcopy paperback:
