Hi folks! I've been struggling with how to properly read the CPM diagram. I've never used these before and have found it confusing. I remember when fist watching the prepcast series that it was very well explained. I think a refresher watch will help clear up my confusion. But I can't remember which module that was in. Would anyone be able to direct me to the correct video?

Thanks!

The lesson that explains the CPM is in L0605 Develop Schedule Part 1.

You are likely to encounter some CPM questions on the exam, best way to study is to draw a lot of them (plenty of CPM exercises if you google around)

Do we concentrate on start day 1 or 0. Start at day 1 is very confusing. Should we just concentrate on Start day 0. Thank you.

Thanks everyone for your input! I rewatched the Develop Schedule video - thank you, Joe. One thing I noticed was that the video quickly walks through how to create a network diagram and once the overview is complete, indicates there is a more detailed video on network diagrams to come...but it's not part of the lessons. I found a 'hidden video' on google that very slowly and carefully walks through an example. It's fantastically thorough. I'm now curious what other amazing nuggets of knowledge are available in other hidden videos.
