College of Professional Studies Faculty Member Co-Authors Project Management Textbook
Arthur Thomas, Ph.D., executive director for the Office of Professional Acceleration and Microcredentials in the College of Professional Studies, co-authored the textbook “Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM) Exam Official Cert Guide Premium Edition and Practice Test” with Vijay Kanabar and Thomas Lechler.
Published by the Pearson IT Certification on May 23, the textbook is an independent study guide authorized by the Project Management Institute (PMI).
“We all have taught project management for many years, and PMI allowed us the freedom to include what we thought was needed to make this book suitable for a college class in project management, while still providing the needed information for the certification exam,” Thomas says. “This textbook gave us an opportunity to include what we always considered essential, while also functioning as a self-teaching guide for students. Due to its timing, we tailored the book to the new PMI exam that was just announced, so we’re already up to date with the focus of the new CAPM certification.”
