What Project Management insights that you gained during the course have been most useful to you?

Learning how to apply my knowledge to a program like Microsoft Project and actually using and understanding the full potential of such software can and will be beneficial to my progress moving forward.

Have your writing skills improved as a result of the course? If so, in what way?

Yes. By actually understanding and applying the terms and terminology that I have learnt through this course, it gives more clarity and confidence to be unambiguous in my writing.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how comfortable were you with reading basic schedule information* before the course and by the end of the course?

7 before and 10 by the end.* Schedule information refers to plans drawn up in project scheduling software such as Microsoft Project, using the Critical Path Method (employing a network diagram), and Gantt charts.

What personal changes have you made as a result of the course?

I have tried to incorporate the Rule for Risk in my daily activities and it has helped me to assess and mitigate any further risks that come up and have helped me to deal with it as required. 

What advice do you have for others to prepare for the exam?

Understand the terminology. This course is structured to enforce thinking through terminology so make sure your terminology foundations are strong.

How would you describe your overall experience of the Project Management Concepts course?

I thought this course was an insightful learning experience and not only have I gained knowledge through this course, but also have taken away the learning habits/fundamentals with me as to progress further in my life. So thank you!

How did this course and method of learning differ from other formal studies which you’ve done (or which you’re doing right now)?

This is more based on understanding and application as opposed to previous learning methods of learning content in a parrot-fashion.
