The Art and Science of Project
(C) 2013 Roger D. H. Warburton and Vijay Kanabar
is the cover of the
second edition. The second edition is highly recommended as
it is updated to
the new version of the PMBOK.
There are several places from which you
can buy the book and the price will be different at each
1) From RW Press, via
Lulu: $45 plus shipping.
To purchase a copy from RW Press*,
Lulu is a “Print on Demand” (PoD) distributor. When you order from RW Press, they forward the request to Lulu who print a copy of the book, which usually takes about 2-3 days. The book is shipped to you using the shipping method you select.
2) At bookstores, including Barnes and Noble and Amazon: $50 (plus shipping).
The second edition may
not be available at bookstores. Amazon.com lists the
book as “in stock.” However, this is not actually true.
If you order from Amazon, they will order a copy from
Lulu who will then print it. Amazon will arrange to have
the book shipped directly to you from Lulu. Therefore,
it is no quicker to order from Amazon.
It is highly recommended that students do not leave the purchase of textbooks to the last minute.
If you order express mail, you can sometimes get it 48 hours after ordering.
*Boston University has approved the distribution of the textbook through RW Press at a lower cost than that available through bookstores.
Here is the cover of the first edition.

There is no text for this course. I will provide Power Point slides each week. I recommend that you print these out before coming to class.
Slides will be available a week before class. They can be downloaded from Blackboard:
