Hello all,

I will have my PMP certificaction in 4 days and attended today the first "test exam". I scored only 65% and it stated failed.. However I found some articles saying only 61% would be required? Does someone know what is now the current passing rate?

If I am already writing, I would also have a small question. What is the difference between Budget at Completion (BAC) and EAC (Estimate at Completion)? Is it just the fact that the EAC is just an estimation and BAC is the true number?

I also don't understand the difference between LAG or Float? I always thought it is the same,, but apparently it isnt..

Those are my only remaining question and I am sure I will be ready in 4 days.
Thanks for all your great material.

Okay regarding BAC and EAC I have clarified.

BAC is the Budget which was calculated for the project (Baseline) and the EAC is the "Current" estimate at completion.. In an "ideal" world both should be the same so the Variance at completion is 0 or, the BAC is higher then EAC, which means we are overbudgeted.
