A training manual for a two-day training course, or
A self teach book, or

About the Author
As a project controls consultant I have used a number of planning and scheduling software packages for the management of a range of project types and sizes. The first books I published were user guides/training manuals for Primavera SureTrak, P3 and Microsoft Project users. These were well received by professional project managers and schedulers, so I decided to turn my attention to Primavera Enterprise. This book follows the same proven layout of my previous books. I trust this book will assist you in understanding how to use Primavera Enterprise on your projects.

The book provides advice on how on how these options may be applied to projects environments and it aims to teach readers how to plan and progress projects created within the software package and stays focused on explaining how to use Primavera Version 5.0 to schedule projects by: Ø Concentrating on the core functions required to plan and schedule a project in a single project environment. Ø Providing command lists at the start of each chapter as a quick reference. Ø Omitting advice on project management methodology and/ or theory, which the target audience may not be interested in, and would tend to pad the book out. Ø Providing a comprehensive index of all topics. This publication is an update of the Version 4.1 book and ideal for a person who would like to quickly gain an understanding of how the software operates. It explains how the software differs from Primavera-Team Play P3e and P3e/c, Primavera Version 4.1, SureTrak, P3 and Microsoft Project, thus making it ideal for people who wish to convert from other products.

Primavera 5.04
While I appreciate the content of the text, the text must be studied in conjunction with the program. Text needs to present more visuals aids in the absence of access to a very costly program. The class I am currently enrolled in needs to provide lab time to study the text in conjunction with the program.

Project Planning & Scheduling Using P3e/c by Paul E. Harris5
I have had classroom Primavara clases back in the 90's when it was DOS-based, and refresher classes in 2006 The presentation by Mr. Harris in his book is very good. Classroom depends on the instructor teaching as much as he/she can in the two and three day courses, with the class book being just a guide. The speed of the class depends on those attending. Some learn faster, some slower. Using Mr. Harris' book you can learn at your own pace. I recommend you do both. There is no substitue for having an instructor to ask questions. Read Mr. Harris' book then sign up with a class in your location. The classroom study plus this book should give you a good understanding of Primavera Enterprise. Keep the book handy for quick reference. If you don't use P3e regularily, you forget things and this book provides refresher information
