Hi,
I am intending to self study for the Foundation course. Please could someone recommend a full list of study material required to successfully take the exam.

Many thanks

Patrick Grant

Hi Patrick,

First there is the PRINCE2 manual ‘Managing Successful Projects with PRINCE2: 2009 Edition’, however a bit expensive at £50-£75. You can try ‘PRINCE2 for Dummies 2009’, which is more cost effective and gets good reviews.

Another good options is ‘PRINCE2: A Practical Handbook’ by Colin Bentley. I have some colleagues who have used this book to pass their Foundation exam.

There is a list of other books here PRINCE2 Books

Hope this helps.
