Many PMP aspirants who sign up for PMI membership for the sole purpose of saving money on the certification cost, do not know that PMI membership also gives them free online access to over 250 Project Management books with free membership of books24x7. Many who do know about books24x7, don’t really know how to access this resource. And PMI, as usual, is very good at making their website layout as unintuitive as possible. So, here’s how you access books24x7. Remember, you need to be PMI member in order to access this resource.
Unfortunately, PMI has discontinued Books24x7 access for PMI members.
