Of course it's a free exam so it could very well be wrong but here's the question:

"Which of the following does NOT generate changes to project documents?"

And the answer is Define Activities.

I really don't understand this. I mean the activity list and milestones list are part of the project plan and documents. Am I missing something or is this just a terrible test?

Ron,

Upon initial review I would tend to agree with you. Please tell me that this is not one of our questions... ?

Not one of yours.
Actually it was what brought me here. I was like "enough of this free crap. I'm going somewhere I know I can trust the questions"

If a process happens to update other process' outputs, then we would consider it as project document updates.
Per PMBOK4, Define activities generates activity list,attributes and milestones, by taking inputs from scope baseline, PMIS (EEF), scheduling methodology (OPA) etc. The process does not update any existing project documents by that time.

For example, Risk response planning may identify changes to WBS and the activities list. This is another PMIism, may be!

I feel while decomposing the work packages into activities, you might realize that few work packages were missing, and you might as well change WBS. If PMP is not yet approved, thats okay, other wise you would go through change control process to reissue scope baseline.

Just wanted to share my viewpoint!

Regards,
Chary
