PMP Exam Q and A

The following PMP® exam sample question is taken from the Free PMP Exam Simulator. (The answer is at the very bottom):

You are managing a software development project. In the middle of the project, you find out that you are way behind schedule. Your company has invested a lot in this project, and if you don't deliver the project on time, it will be a total disaster. You analyze your project schedule to adjust it so that you may be able to complete the project on time with the existing resources. You find out that you have a lot of discretionary dependencies in your project schedule. What is the best way for you to adjust the project schedule so that you may be able to complete the project on time?

A) Keep the discretionary dependencies intact and apply Crashing    
B) Keep the discretionary dependencies intact and apply Fast Tracking    
C) Remove the discretionary dependencies and apply Crashing    
D) Remove the discretionary dependencies and apply Fast Tracking

Hint:

You need to find a way out of this problem with your existing resources.

Answer and Explanation:

The Correct Answer is D. As you need to find a way out of this problem with your existing resources, you can't apply the Crashing technique. You can only apply Fast Tracking after removing the discretionary dependencies from the project.
