Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Can you suggest a good P3 reference Manual?

Can I please ask your views on the different manuals on the market for P3, I am currently using the manual that is provided with P3, but as it is a friends and i am moving job, then I am going to lose it. So could you please recommend a good manual and contacts for where to purchase it from.

Thank you for your time and help.

Dave

You might want to look at the one I wrote, go to my web site and you may download some sample chapters.

You may also get it from Amazon.com, bestpmbooks.com, Amazon.co.uk and compman.co.uk.

I also supply a spiral bound version which is not available from anywhere else. This is good for learning from as it lies flat on the desk.

It fits between the Primavera Systems training handouts and their manuals.

Hi,

There is a P3 3.x Reference Manual on Primavera Knowledgebase. This is a pdf format.

dont worry, someone will recommend his book to you very soon.

I reckon, the book by Don Buttterfield from Canada is so far the easiest to follow, while other "books" basically copied from the P3 training manual, and added with some comments.

Best of luck.
