Curriculum

Section 1: PMP® Math Course Structure
01:32

Course structure is explained.

Section 2: PMP® Project Selection Methods
02:39

There are some methods in order to make the right decision. Most of the time, only one method is not enough and therefore, several methods may need to be used simultaneously.

01:58

Internal Rate of Return calculation is very complicated, and therefore, you don’t need to know, how to calculate it for the exam.

03:35

Payback period, is the time required, for the amount invested in a project, to be repaid by the net cash outflow generated after the project is closed.

02:32

Another Economic Model for project selection is Cost-Benefit analysis. In this method, cost of the project is compared with benefits of the project.

02:53

We simply define, present value as the value of money today. In this lecture you will learn how to do present value calculations.

01:14

Net present value is total present value of revenue, minus, total present value of costs.

7 questions

07:37

In this bonus lecture, we will mention some accounting terms, related to Project selection, that you should be familiar with for the PMP exam.

Section 3: Activity Duration and Cost Estimating
01:22

After defining and sequencing the activities; resources required for each activity, are identified. Once you identify the resources, next step is to estimate activity durations and activity costs.

00:20

In order to better control the project, a project manager has to know estimating techniques. These techniques help you to define cost and duration of each individual activity.

00:39

As we understand from the name of the technique, the estimator submits only one estimate for each activity.

01:49

This technique is a fast estimating technique but it gives less accurate results compared to parametric and three point estimating techniques.

03:52

In this technique, standard metrics, industry requirements, other sources, and also, historical information are used.

02:30

In this lecture, we will learn how to get more realistic estimates by using three point estimating technique. 

02:47

If you see terms like simple distribution or straight distribution in the PMP exam, please note that both of them are telling you that this is a triangular distribution. In this lecture, we will learn how to make estimations by using triangular distribution.

08:06

In this lecture, we will learn how to make estimations by using beta distribution.

Section 4: Schedule Network Analysis
00:40

Determining the durations of each activity, does not tell you anything about total duration of the project. In order to calculate the total duration of the project, and analyze the result, we use some techniques.

04:12

Before talking about what critical path is, we first need to know the relationship types.

02:18

We need to learn 4 more terms before starting to critical path method. These are: Predecessor, Successor, Lag and Lead.

03:01

In this lecture, we will explain what "Critical Path" is.

01:23

There are three types of floats: Total Float, Free Float and Project Float. In this lecture we will learn them one by one.

02:16

In this lecture, we will first learn what the forward pass and backward pass are, and then we will make the calculations, in order to find the floats and the critical path.

10:20

In this lecture, we will learn how to do Critical Path Method calculations.

01:04

This is the middle of the Critical Path Method Lecture and now it is time to point out some important notes about risk.

02:37

(Continuing...)

02:29

In this lecture, we will talk about "Activity on Node" and "Activity on Arrow" types of network logic.

01:48

In this lecture we will talk about advantages and disadvantages of AoN and AoA.

12:26

In this lecture, we will learn how to do AoA calculations.

02:20

In this lecture, we will talk about schedule compression techniques.

02:54

Generally, we use two techniques in order to shorten the duration of the project: Fast tracking and crashing. In this lecture we will explain Fast Tracking Technique.

02:25

Generally, we use two techniques in order to shorten the duration of the project: Fast tracking and crashing. In this lecture we will explain Crashing Technique.

02:07

If we cannot fast track or crash, we have two more options: Reduce Scope and Cut Quality. In this lecture, we will talk about them.

01:07

Modeling techniques are used, in order to see what happens if there is a change in one or more input of an activity.

04:11

In this lecture, we will talk about Monte Carlo Analysis.

01:51

In this lecture, we will talk about Resource Optimization.

02:33

There are two techniques used for resource optimization: Resource Leveling and Resource Smoothing. In this lecture, we will explain Resource Leveling.

01:14

There are two techniques used for resource optimization: Resource Leveling and Resource Smoothing. In this lecture, we will explain Resource Smoothing.

01:16

In this lecture, we will talk about differences between Resource Leveling and Resource Smoothing.

01:15

Generally, we use critical path method in order to manage our projects. However, one more method named “Critical Chain Method” may also be used in order to manage the projects. In this lecture, we will talk about this method.
