These questions are based on 70-632: TS – Microsoft Office Project 2007, Configuring Microsoft Self-Test Software Practice Test.


Objective: Estimating, scheduling and budgeting tasks
SubObjective: Sequence tasks


Single Answer, Multiple Choice


You create a project plan and have two tasks that need to be linked. You want to ensure the “Define Business Model” task does not end before you complete the “Define Outsourcing Strategy” task.


How should you link the two tasks?



  1. Start to finish
  2. Start to start
  3. Finish to finish
  4. Finish to start

Answer:



  1. Finish to finish

Tutorial:
You should link the two tasks as finish to finish, which requires that a dependent task be completed only when a task on which it depends is also completed. In this scenario, you must ensure that the “Define Outsourcing Strategy” task is completed so that the dependent “Define Business Model” task can be completed.


You should not link the tasks as start to finish because this would allow a dependent task to be completed only when the task on which it depends has started.


You should not link the tasks as start to start because this would prevent the dependent task from being started until the task on which it depends has started.


You should not link the tasks as finish to start because this would allow a dependent task to begin only when the task on which it depends is completed.
