If you're studying for the PMP Exam, you may want to listen to the MP3s of past PMP Exam Study Group conference calls. They're located in our Archive (see the link on our website).

Prior to the call, the presentation will appear on the PM Lessons Learned group in Yahoo Groups (note: it may not be posted until just before the call). The directions to obtain the presentation are at - on the left hand side of the webpage follow the link titled "Files and Presentations" to see directions for obtaining the presentation.

When managing or working on a project, what you don't know *can* hurt you. In this presentation, we'll cover 7 common misperceptions about project management ranging from the truth about variances and change requests (both should be sought out and celebrated!) to the reality of Brook's Law (meaning that adding resources to a late project will not always make it finish later!).
