Kim Heldman is an accomplished author and speaker. Her first book-writing venture was a study guide written for Sybex Books, Inc. titled PMP Project Management Professional Study Guide. This study guide prepares readers to take the Project Management Professional (PMP®) exam conducted by the Project Management Institute (PMI®). This study guide is now in its fifth edition.

In addition to the Study Guide, Kim has also written other books on the topic of project management including CompTIA Project+ Study Guide, Excel 2007 for Project Managers, Project Management JumpStart 2nd Edition (watch for the 3rd edition in early 2011), and Project Manager's Spotlight on Risk Management.

Kim is an excellent speaker who is able to entertain and engage her audiences in the topic at hand and leave them with several word pictures, tips, and hints they can take back and apply immediately to their situation.
