4Great Book!
By Izumi Koh
I am developing/conducting my first Project Management Training class. This book provides course outlines for 1/2 day - 2 day class, including instructor notes. I will only need to modify a few slides for our company specific needs. This saved me a lot of time.

I highly recommend this book!

I would say that a PMP is highly respected within both IT & non-IT communities where strong project management skills are required. If you plan on a long term career as a project manager, then yes, even with your level of experience, I would suggest getting your PMP. You can prepare yourself for the exam in one of the leading training providers like http://www.pmstudy.com . You can do minimal prep-work to get 40 PMI® Contact Hours and apply to PMI for PMP Exam before the class begins.T PMP Certification
