Hi all,
I'm having some difficulty understanding the critical path.
the PMBOK guide defines it as "the critical path is the sequence of activities that represents the longest path through a project, which determines the shortest possible project duration". .... What does this mean? In sample questions, the path with the longest duration is the critical path. (30 days versus 25 days ).This is contradictory to the definition. What am I missing here?
Any advice would be appreciated!
Thanks!
