Anyone?

Thinking about it to check that square, but man this looks like the ultimate hard/tedious/long and frankly BS test if ever there was one. A billion questions and pouring through the course material made me long for watching paint dry. And PS I have been a PM for years.

Any books you consider better (or not) as study guides? Courses? etc?

In this economy, and the one that will follow, checking the PMP box can only be a good thing. My wife has been a PM for 10 years. She's finishing up her's now. She got let go from a company 2 years ago, where she had worked for 17 years, simply because when it got tight and calls had to be made, she was going up against someone who had it, and she didn't. He stayed, she got let go.

Now that she's finishing up her cert., she just got a raise. Yeah, I think it's worth it.

Its absolutely worth it - especially if your company will pay for the exams, annual dues, and maintenance.

And if you're going to hinge your decision on something - look at the maintenance of it. That'll cost more in the long run in terms of money and time.

I came across an interesting website for project managers. The site studies the importance of emotional and cultural intelligence (plus some other attributes) of project managers in relation to their project management performance. It offers free assessment in those two intelligence quotients. I recommend you to check it out because it may be beneficial to your career.

I have yet to meet a PMP person who could manage their way out of a wet paper bag. That said, it is a good box to check. Just understand, that having it doesn't mean you know how to manage a project.

Credentials are often the primary factor in hiring but may not predict success in a field.

I worked as a PM for over twenty years and hired a number of people and never cared about credentials. I was more concerned with experience, first hand references, and interviews that indicate an ability to work with people and make intelligent pragmatic decisions.

That cert is becoming saturated. Just like the Java certs and all the MS certs when everyone needs one then how do you tell the good ones from the bad ones ? When everyone has a cert then that cert doesn't mean too much in differentiating knowledge, skill levels.

Quite easy to memorize a book and pass a test. I worked with quite a few "Java certified" folks over the years and I'll take a person with no certs but 10 years in the field anyday over a fresh "Java certified" programmer anyday.
