Quick Quiz - Integration

Quick Quizzes are a great way to assess how much you learned during the PMP Boot Camp. They aren't called "Quick" because they are short or take a small amount of time, but rather because you should be able to answer each question quickly. You probably won't see many questions like this on the PMP exam, but it is a good way to solidify the base knowledge upon which you must draw to answer PMP situational, behavioral questions. This Quick Quiz will help you obtain the 1st of the 3 keys to passing the PMP Exam: An in-depth understanding of the PMBOK. 

Quick Quizzes are timed based on an average of 72 seconds per question.

If you cannot answer all of these questions correctly, go back and study the student guides, read the PMBOK, and prepare questions to ask your instructor during the next class session.
