I think Mr. Risos’ book has several strengths:
1) It has the right approach by teaching the content going along the Processes (e.g. Initiation, Scope, Time, etc) vs. the Knowledge Areas like most of the courses and books do. Wherever possible (e.g. those the processes that cross with Integration and Planning), the book gives you a suggestion for the sequencing of steps. This is VERY important to be able to answer the situational questions of the exam, which are the majority.
2) The ideas and content are very uncluttered. The minimum possible, I did appreciate that considering the dense content of the PMBOK. Mr. Risos dares to simplify the number of tools at each process which I think is the right way to do it. Too much information is too scary.
3) The e-book and overall format is a joy to read, to do searches, the features to create flash cards is so useful to review content, easy to do the quizzes etc…
