    CORRECT: Answer: A
  19. Following can be BEST described as a kind of dependency that can create arbitrary float values and limit scheduling options:
    1. Mandatory dependency
    2. Discretionary dependency

    3. Develop Schedule
    4. Estimate Activity Durations
    CORRECT: Answer: C
  21. Parametric Estimating is done as a part of which process:
    1. Sequence Activities
    2. Develop Schedule
    3. Estimate Activity Resources
    4. Estimate Activity Durations
    CORRECT: Answer: D
  22. Identification of Mandatory Dependencies is BEST done during which process:
    1. Sequence Activities
    2. Develop Schedule
    3. Define Activities
    4. Estimate Activity Duration
    CORRECT: Answer: A
  23. Resource reallocation from non-critical to critical activities is an example of which Project Scheduling technique:

  24. Knowledge of best practices in a particular area is MOST likely to give rise to which of the following dependencies:
    1. Finish-to-Start dependency
    2. Soft Logic
    3. Mandatory dependency
    4. External dependency
    CORRECT: Answer: B Discretionary dependencies often result from best practices. This kind of dependency is also known as Soft Logic, Preferential Logic, or Preferred Logic.
  25. A Project Manager is preparing a Project Schedule network diagram. During the diagram development, she removes a dependency between two tasks that was defined in an earlier stage. After the network diagram is completed, she updates activity attributes for the two tasks. This is an example of:
    1. Define Activities
    2. Sequence Activities
    3. Develop Schedule
    4. Lack of change control
    CORRECT: Answer: D The Project manager is preparing the project schedule network diagram which implies she is in the Activity scheduling process. This process can generate changes to the Activity definition and Activity Attributes; however, such changes should
  26. Reserve Analysis involves:
    1. Estimating by multiplying the quantity of work by productivity rate
    2. Incorporating time buffers into the activity duration estimates
    3. Developing project schedule with contingency reserves as a recognition of the schedule risk
    4. Adding resource reserves to the activity resource estimates
    CORRECT: Answer: B Answer C might seem more likely, but note the fine difference that Reserve Analysis is purely a technique of determining activity duration, not a schedule development technique.
  27. Which of the following is not true for Resource Leveling:
    1. Project schedule is build with resource buffers to prevent schedule slippage
    2. Project’s Critical path may be altered
    3. Resource based scheduling method
    4. Reverse resource allocation scheduling
    CORRECT: Answer: A Resource leveling involves creating a resource constrained project schedule.

  • I took the boot camp last Monday thru Thursday and I passed my PMP, on my first attempt, on Friday afternoon.

    Lorna Lavelle, PMP
  • I took my bootcamp last week and passed the next day. My instructor was easily one of the best instructors I've ever had.

    Timothy Hopkins, PMP
  • I leveraged the course as somewhat of a capstone to my preparation period. I took the exam the very next day after the boot camp ended, and passed.
