'This book is a comprehensive and modern guide to managing projects in an IT environment. It covers all the core information you need to start, deliver and complete a project, with a strong focus on core project management competencies. If you're studying for the related exam, this is an easy-to-use textbook where the authors clearly explain the main concepts. The end of section questions help you really grasp the ideas and see how you can put them into practice. There's a case study running through the book that helps bring the techniques to life. This goes beyond a basic project management book to be a useful text for people working in IT environments, as it covers concepts like pair programming, testing and other aspects of completing projects successfully while juggling the complexities of a technical environment. Recommended.'
