Exam Prep Questions

  1. You are a project manager newly assigned to a large project for your organization. The project charter has been signed and the preliminary scope statement has been accepted. What should you do next?

    1. Ask appropriate team members to submit WBS input.

    2. Initiate the scope planning process.

    3. Initiate the develop project management plan process.

    4. Begin the activity definition process.

  2. As project manager, you are about to start the scope definition process. You have the project charter, the organizational process assets list, and the project scope management plan. Since there are no change requests in your project at this point, what must you have before you begin?

    1. Product analysis

    2. Preliminary project scope statement

    3. Updates to project scope management plan

    4. WBS

  3. You are creating your WBS and find that you keep decomposing tasks into smaller and smaller units. How can you tell when you are done?

    1. Keep decomposing tasks until you reach an amount of work that is small enough to reliably estimate required resources and duration.

    2. Keep decomposing tasks until you reach an amount of work that can be accomplished in one hour.

    3. Keep decomposing work until you reach an amount of work that can be accomplished in your organization's basic work unit.

    4. Keep decomposing work until you reach a predetermined number of hierarchy levels to keep the WBS balanced.

  4. What term is defined as the practice of planning activities based on how soon the tasks are scheduled to start, such that activities that are close to their start date are planned at a more detailed level than those farther in the future? This term also implies that as activities near their start date more detailed plans will be required.

    1. Progressive elaboration

    2. Rolling wave planning

    3. Planning component elaboration

    4. Milestone detail planning

  5. Which type of network diagram allows you to depict four types of dependencies?

    1. Precedence diagramming method (PDM)

    2. Arrow diagramming method (ADM)

    3. Dependency diagramming method (DDM)

    4. Gannt chart diagram (GCD)

  6. Which type of network diagram is also referred to a activity-on-arrow (AOA) diagrams?

    1. Precedence diagramming method (PDM)

    2. Arrow diagramming method (ADM)

    3. Dependency diagramming method (DDM)

    4. Gannt chart diagram (GCD)

    Use Figure 3.7 for questions 7, 8, and 9.

    Figure 3.7 A sample PDM diagram.

  7. What is the critical path for this project, and what is the duration of the critical path?

    1. A-B-D-F-G, 13 days

    2. A-C-E-G, 14 days

    3. A-B-D-F-G, 14 days

    4. A-C-E-G, 13 days

  8. How many days can task D be late in starting without affecting the project completion date?

    1. One day

    2. Two days

    3. Zero days

    4. Three days

  9. If task C starts two days late, what is the effect on the project end date?

    1. The project ends one day late because there is slack of one day.

    2. The project is still two days early because tasks B, D, and F each have one day of slack.

    3. The project is one day late because task C is on the critical path.

    4. There is no effect on the project end date.

  10. When developing the estimates for project phases, you choose to add the individual estimates for the activities that comprise each phase. What type of estimation method are you using?

    1. Parametric estimating

    2. Bottom-up estimating

    3. Top-down estimating

    4. Analogous estimating
