When studying for the CAPM exam, I used the PMBOK and typical 'PMP' study guides to prepare myself, rather than limiting myself to study materials classified for 'CAPM'. You might say all that is over kill for studying for the CAPM, however I found all this extra information to be relevant as it gave me a more thorough understanding of concepts involved. While I might not have the pertinent experience of PMP exam (5 years plus), I am very well equipped for on the job at hand and able to work with more senior members of the team because of my advanced knowledge gained through advanced study. Just want to know what you think about this idea, of using a more advanced study text (such as that used for PMP exam study) to study for a lesser exam such as with CAPM. Is it something you would do?
