Dear all,

One thing that has been confusing is the difference between Monitor and Control project at the Integration stage and other controls throughout the 10 knowledge area?
What is the major difference, if I have control in each area, what is the purpose of the monitor under Integration?

Thanks

Integration. That is your answer.
Each process may have a control,but they are not the bigger picture. With integration you can see the forest through the trees.

Thanks Weston,

So how can I differentiate between them when it is mentioned in the exam, especially related to ITTO.

You will have to understand the flow of the processes as they relate to each other. Memorizing the processes will help, but the test will play on your understand and grasp of the concept. Read the ITTOS and see how the inputs and outputs play, this should give you an indication of which process you are in. Also, on the test, pay attention to what is being asked, this can be tricky, but very doable.
Place some effort on seeing how the inputs and outputs work together and where they go or come from.
