                          4. Estimate Activity Duration
                          CORRECT: C
                        2. A Project with a total funding of $100,000 finished with a BAC value of $95,000. What term can BEST describe the difference of $5,000?
                          1. Cost Variance
                          2. Management Overhead
                          3. Management Contingency Reserve
                          4. Schedule Variance
                          CORRECT: C. At completion the BAC represents the revised Cost baseline for the project. Management reserves are not part of the cost baselines but they are part of the Project Funding requirements. Therefore the difference between the Cost Baseline and Funding
                        3. Project Cost Management Plan is created as a part of:

                          3. Determine Budget process
                          4. Control Costs process

                          3. Management Overheads
                          4. Project Management Planing
                          CORRECT: B
                        6. _____________ is not part of the Earned Value calculations.

                          4. Amount of work completed
                          CORRECT: B
                        7. What is the BEST way to make an accurate forecasting of ETC?
                          1. Manual Forecasting of cost of remaining work.
                          2. BAC – EV
                          3. (BAC – EV)/CPI
                          4. EAC - AC
                          CORRECT: A
                        8. If the Earned Value is equal to Actual Cost, it means:
                          1. Project is on budget and on schedule
                          2. Schedule Variance Index is 1
                          3. There is no schedule variance
                          4. There is no cost variance
                          CORRECT: D. EV – AC = Cost Variance. Therefore if EV = AC, the Cost Variance is zero (i.e. Project is on budget (but not necessarily on schedule, as there is not enough information on schedule variance)
                        9. Trend Analysis is BEST described as:
                          1. Analyzing performance of similar projects over time

                          CORRECT: C
                        12. Project Cost Management Plan is created as a part of:
