Therefore, a lot of "business management" kinds of concept are tested. Having rich academic research background is not enough - you have to be a good administrator and manager as well. Keep in mind, managing a research project is no different from managing a traditional business project. All business concepts, principles and practices would apply. The BOK of the exam has a huge scope. Expecting full and complete coverage of all the knowledge items from a single source is unrealistic.
