Software Project Management by Bob Hughes & Mike Cotterell

I am currently studying a module on Software Project Management - and have this book as one of my main tools.
Books is very thorough and informative, however it is hard-copy. And this makes quick reference and searching very time-consuming.
Do any of you know if there is a link to a "searchable" download library version, online?

This would make things so much quicker, and allow me to focus on my studies.

Any assistance gratefully received.

Is the book you are referring to the PMI Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK)? If so, members can get a PDF version for free. Membership in PMI is only $32 for students.

Hi There,

This is exactly along the lines of what I am looking for.
However this is the first 18 or so pages - book itself is 392.

My searches so far have only found this or similar "cropped" sample sections.

I am hoping to find the complete download.

Again, I am very grateful to you taking the time to assist.

Have you tried contacting the publisher, McGraw Hill? If not, I would contact them on Monday and ask if they have something for you.
