[MOBTS-L] Undergraduate Project Mgmt Course - Text Recommendations?

I would recommend two texts for the course: 

- an approved PMP certification study guide

- Competing by Design: Nadler and Tushman. It provides a big picture view of how companies compete on business models. Understanding this enables PMs to assign priorities to concurrent projects based on what the company needs to be successful, and effectively communicate/defend these decisions.  

Hope this helps!

While I have taught this before, I have not been happy with the textbook options available--they either have been too easy or superficial, or overly complex. All seem to lack application-based exercises to engage and interest my students.   I of course am working with publisher reps to find options, but would welcome your suggestions of texts/mateirals you have enjoyed using.  Thanks so much.
