What You’ll Need Alongside This Book
This book is targeted at revision and exam practice, not explaining the method or learning it, so you’ll need some things alongside to complete your set of PRINCE2 materials.
The manual and PRINCE2 For Dummies
The PRINCE2 exams aren’t a pushover by any means, and success requires both hard work in learning then effective exam preparation with revision and practice with exam style questions. The first of those, learning the method, is covered by a companion book PRINCE2 For Dummies and, of course, by the official manual for the PRINCE2 method, Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2 (The Stationery Office).
This workbook covers the second area, which is revision and practice with exam questions. You’ll find some help between the covers on the content of PRINCE2, but that help is targeted at things that people often misunderstand or find hard to understand in the first place. For full details, you’ll need to refer to the manual; for a more friendly explanation then try PRINCE2 For Dummies. This workbook has lots of cross references to both of these other publications. For clear and helpful explanation, PRINCE2 For Dummies has been extremely well received, but you’ll also need the manual. The For Dummies books are a supplement to the official manual, not a replacement for it, to help with effective learning and exam preparation.
