Need explanations with some answers for PMZilla Tough 25 Questions
can somebody help me with explanation of those questions below?
1 Q: You have just been assigned to a project and you discover that feasibility analysis and decision to go ahead is already made. Further you find that without discussing with you or your involvement, basic decisions on staffing, budgeting, completion dates and deliverables have also been made. What is the first thing you will do.?
2 Q: You will not be handling a large project with multiple departments & suppliers participating. Stakeholder management will be key for your success. You expect politics, conflicts, and personal gains coming in the way of project’s success. How do I handle the politics between all the stakeholders?
3. Q: You are managing a team of highly motivated R & D project. It’s your job to finalize Human resource planning. You are trying to best assign Roles and Responsibilities to your project team. You would have done all the following except:
Ensure that contract is legally binding
Ensure it has detailed SOW
Ensure that seller has signed off.
Ensure that contract is fixed price to avoid risk to you.
For the last Q about procurements: why is legal departmant not the one who shold make sure that contract is legaly binding (since they are legal expers)? Why PM has to take care that contract is legal binding (besides taking care that it contains appropriate SOW, special provisions that project need etc.)?
I scored 60% on these questions. I'm not sure if this is sufficient scoring for my PMP exam, which is due in 1,5 weeks. What do you think? I know that they are tough and sure hope that PMP is not as heavy as these questions...
I did also some other online simulation tests and my results are as following (I did Rita's Example exam deconcentraced, so I scored poorly):
|Oliver's 75 free PMP questions||84%|
|Rita - PM FASTrack Example exam||64%|
|PM Study free exam (full)||77%|
|20 Free PMP Exam prep questions||80%|
|Quick 12 Free PMP Questions||75%|
|Free pm exam questions||87%|
I have still couple of days left, but do you think that this is sufficient scoring for the exam? I know that I should know the best how prepared I am, but I would like to hear also some other opinions....
Tnx and KR.
