Re: Advise on how to go with PMP preprations in 40 days

Now a days questions are too tough. Previously they have given direct questions from glossary, ITTO etc.
PMP questions are situational with no direct answer!
I think through read out Rita's book might help. Saket's videos will also give clarity.
Questions are not like Mock Tests!

Re: How to Calculate Loaded Hourly Rate

Wage of the worker = $ 20/ hour
Fringe Benefit = 10% of 20 = $2 /hour
Over Head 50% of 20 =$ 10 /hour
Loaded hourly rate = $ ( 20+2+10) = $ 32
