Errors in the book and on the CDROM February 13, 2011
by
Good course but!

Book Errors
pg 8 example 2
PV = FV / (1 r) time not multiplied by

Pg 131 problem 4
The correct answer is C and answer B on pg 134

Pg 67 example 1
The answer is Make = 92000 and Buy = 65000 so EVM equals 27000 NOT -138000

CDROM Errors
Test 2 Question 1
ETC= EAC-AC
The question says AC =15000 and the Answer says AC =25000 you will get this question wrong.

Test 6 Question 10
Cost Budget = cost baseline management reserve so 95000 9500 1900 = 123500 not answer 125400, the cost baseline is calculated twice.

Test 8 Question 2
The problem does not give the 5 percent interest rate, to get the answer correct assume 1.05 in (1 r)

Test 10 Question 2
The question is looking for SD not Variance which is not specified.

Test 10 Question 1
Answer B and D are the same answer but answer D will be the correct one.

Test 10 Question 7
There is no EVM question to the answer, but the answer is A
