Ultimate Microsoft Project 2007 - Exam Prep Boot Camp 70-632


Description: 

This intensive 3-Day boot camp delivers the fundamental scheduling skills that you need to manage projects successfully with Microsoft Office Project 2007, and prepares you for the Microsoft 70-632 certification exam (Microsoft Office Project 2007, Managing Projects). Mastering the Microsoft Project scheduling engine is the key to enjoying your work with the software.  

This course shows you how to drive the tool through each stage of the project management life cycle and offers multiple best practices for using the software while defining, planning, executing, and closing a project. Although framed around PMI's project life cycle, the course content is methodology-agnostic and focuses on hands-on learning methods. As you learn how to manage projects properly using Microsoft Office Project 2007, you will also master the foundational through intermediate knowledge needed for the challenging Microsoft 70-632 certification exam. As preparation for the 70-632 certification exam, each student receives the following:

  • A copy of the 902-page Ultimate Learning Guide to Microsoft Office Project 2007 book, which serves as both the course manual and a valuable reference book
  • A detailed Preparation Guide document detailing the competencies and knowledge required to pass the certification exam
  • An in-class practice exam that simulates the actual certification exam
  • Guidance from a Microsoft Certified IT Professional instructor who has taken and passed each of the certification exams for Microsoft Project 2007 and Project Server 2007
  • For courses taken via Cyberspace, each participant must use his or her own computer to access the virtual training environment. A high-speed internet connection is recommended. Participants do not need to have Microsoft Project installed in order to participate in the hands-on exercises.
