    Good. Since I started late, I was in a fix whether to extend studying plan for 4-6 months. I pushed myself to study daily for just 2-3 weeks and now I think another 45 days should be enough to appear for exam. Beyond that I may start forgetting/losing motivation. Now targetting 200 practice questions every week till exam. We can discuss doubts/tips here. Others plz participate as well, will help us all.

    Thought to post a quiz from exam's point of view - do you know the difference between triangulation and beta estimation ? Others can do the same

    Triangulation is a term used to a standard average (mean) - taking 3 data points and dividing by their number (3). The term 'beta' is the statistics term for our PERT estimate - the weighted 3-point estimate. This inserts the concept that the Most Likely estimate has a greater chance of occurring than either of the extremes (P+(4*ML)+O)/6. We divide by 6 here, because that is the count of the individual data points.

    Hello, could you please tell me where you are finding practice questions? I understood that Simplilearn had an app for that, outside the chapter and e-book questions. Thanks for any help.

    There are tonnes of practice questions on net. I think with just one month to go, focus should be on quality of questions. I think Simplilearn 5 sample tests are great. Also Oliver Lehman's 75 online + 175 pdf questions are good. PM Study's free sample test is of good quality as well.

    There are a series of practice exams - each one has 200 questions. That's a start. There are also some material in our pdfs, including another practice exam.
